Congratulations are in order for Calle 13's resident "Residente" René Pérez, who wed Argentine actress Soledad Fandiño in a secret ceremony. Fandiño had previously starred in the Puerto Rican duo's video for "La Vuelta Al Mundo." Here are some other well-known stars who found love (sometimes lasting, all too often fleeting) with someone on the job.

Britney + KFed

Giving (fleeting) hope to terrible wannabe rappers everywhere, Kevin Federline popped and locked his way into the spotlight when the backup dancer tied the knot with pop superstar Britney Spears.

JLo + Casper

Following her split with fellow mega star Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez opted for a lesser profile dude in the form of choreographer/dancer/actor Casper Smart.

Kanye West + Amber Rose

Kanye first laid eyes on model Amber Rose when she starred in a Ludacris video, and later cast her in the video for his single, "Robo-Cop." Romantic. Fun fact: When he first called her up, she hung up on him thinking he was a prank caller.

LeAnn Rimes + Dean Sheremet

They might be ancient, painful tabloid history at this point, but love first bloomed between country singer LeAnn Rimes and her ex-husband when he was asked to perform as a backup dancer when she hosted the 2001 Academy of Country Music Awards.

Prince + Mayte Garcia

Prince married the woman formerly known as his wife after she'd been dancing in his shows and videos for years. He was first introduced to Mayte when her mother sent him a cassette of Mayte performing.

The Obamas

Obama met his wife, then known as Michelle Robinson, while working as a summer associate at a Chicago law firm. Michelle had been assigned to advise Obama and, although she often joined him at various social functions, she initially declined his requests for a one-on-one date.
