Some fans were unaware that Jennette McCurdy and Andre Drummond were dating at the time they were just friends.
The Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly, for which the 29-year-old actress received four Kids’ Choice Awards, is best recognized for her performance as Sam Puckett.
Andre played for the Connecticut Huskies and the Cleveland Cavaliers before signing a contract with the Brooklyn Nets.
However, did you know Janet and Andre dated briefly a few years ago? Some people seem to wait years before realizing they are in love.
Even though Jennette McCurdy and Andre Drummond started dating in 2013, it took some fans nine years to learn about it.

Andre played basketball for the Detroit Pistons at the time of their relationship, and Janet returned to the role of Sam in the sequel “Sam and the Cat.”
Because of how the two artists’ fans, who were ignorant of their relationship, reacted, their brief affair suddenly burst into the spotlight.
Another reason is a recent tweet with the subject line “Never Forget Sam Puckett and Andre Drummond,” which as of this writing has received 66,000 likes and more than 3,500 retweets.
When the two celebrities initially became romantically involved, Janet and Andre’s relationship attracted a lot of interest on social media.
The iCarly actress admitted to Nerdist.com that Andre was the one who “slipped into her DM,” but their romance fizzled out quickly.
It was really brief, she told the site, lasting barely about a week.
The former Disney actress remembered and described in great detail their first kiss.
She said, “My first kiss with him was after we were laser marked. “I was perched on a chair… I did. It wasn’t good, though. It wasn’t easy. No flames, and the mouth…was not shaped properly.
But that is now over. Andre is a father of two, but he has kept his personal life a mystery. Jennette is currently outwardly single.
