Gene Simmons fell in love with Diana Ross while dating Cher.

Gene Simmons: “Initially, Cher and I had a relationship and we lived together in Malibu. One Christmas I asked her what I should buy her and she said, ‘Call my friend Diana Ross, she will tell you exactly what I like as she is my best friend’. So I called Diana up and we went shopping. Then our feelings for each other developed very fast and we started a relationship together.”
