It was Kadeem Hardison who played the math wiz Dwayne Wayne, in the late 80s TV sitcom, “A Different World”, along with Jasmine Guy, who played Whitley Gilbert. Even today, the undeniable chemistry that both Dwayne and Whitley had on the show is remembered fondly.

The series' fans were continuously wondering whether or not they were dating in real life. But, in fact, it was another cast member who had Kadeem’s heart. When asked if it was uncomfortable for him to have his partner on set, he said:

"That wasn’t even my concern at the time. Dominic [Hoffman], Jasmine’s boyfriend at the time, did some spots on the show. It’s like you have your work wife and home wife."

WORK AND LOVE

It is much better known that Kadeem and Cree Summer, who played Freddie Brooks, dated in real life. Both Kadeem and Cree, when interviewed in the past, they said that although they only dated for a year, there are plenty of images captured during their relationship. In fact, Cree posted some of those photographs on her Instagram.

The actress wrote, "We thought we were slick," before mentioning Hardison. He responded, "I'd say we were, only took me 25 years to catch up." The actors who played two of the most beloved characters on the show, were actually lovebirds in real life.

Probably, somebody had a hard time seeing these two together, but they looked pretty adorable as a couple.
