Top 10 Shortest Celebrity Marriages In Hollywood
Although we were saddened to the max by the Kardashian/Humphries divorce announcement, we understand that there are plenty of other well-loved celebrities who never [unfortunately] made it to their one-year anniversary. Here are BANGSTYLE’s top 10 shortest love stories in Hollywood:
#1 Britney Spears & Jason Alexander: 55 Hours
The beginning of Britney Spears‘ fall from grace is easily marked by her whirlwind marriage in 2004 to childhood friend and singer, Jason Alexander. They were married at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, and less than 55 hours after saying “I do,” the marriage was quickly annulled. Even though Spears‘ family and record label tried to quietly dismiss the incident, the multiple visits to rehab, inappropriate public behavior, marriage and divorce to K-Fed and head shaving madness was set to begin soon after. But looking at her career now, Britney Spears is still topping the best selling charts, proving that you can indeed come back from anything.
# 2 Carmen Electra & Dennis Rodman: 6 Days
Eccentric tattooed NBA player and Baywatch actress Carmen Electra were married at the Little Chapel of the Flowers on November 14, 1998. Rodman filed for an annulment six days later due to his “deep intoxication” and unsound mind.
# 3 Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries – 72 days After six months of “fairytale” dating, Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries decided to tie the knot. Their marriage lasted a mere 72 days until Kardashian filed for divorce. The Kardashian/Humphries pre-wedding special had just aired of E! two weeks prior. It’s okay, Kim, at least you weren’t #1!
# 4 Lisa Marie Presley & Nicolas Cage: 108 Days
In 2002, after her nine month marriage to Michael Jackson had ended, Elvis Presley‘s daughter wed Nicolas Cage in yet another failed attempt at happiness. The couple were married for 108 days before Cage filed for divorce.
# 5 Colin Farrell & Amelia Warner: 4 months
We thought that the infamous Irish playboy had finally been tamed by actress, Amelia Warner, when he married her in Tahiti on July 17, 2001. But alas, the marriage ball and chain wasn’t strong enough to hold Farrell down as they divorced just four months later. Too bad Colin had already had her name tattooed on his ring finger when they couple discovered that their marriage was legally binding to begin with. Too bad.
# 6 Kid Rock & Pam Anderson: 4 months
After being engaged in 2002, Kid Rock and Pam Anderson first split in 2003. After dating other people, they got back together in July 2006 and were married on July 29, 2006 in St. Tropez. They signed papers on August 3rd at the Beverly Hills courthouse and on August 17th had a third wedding in Nashville. By November 27, 2006, they had both filed for divorce.
# 7 Jennifer Lopez & Cris Judd: 4 months
Sandwiched between Ojani Noa and Marc Anthony is backup dancer Chris Judd. Lovebirds Lopez and Judd were married in September 2001, but by January, their relationship was over. She obviously didn’t suffer too much heartbreak, as she was engaged to actor Ben Affleck a few months before her divorce to Judd was even finalized.
# 8 Sophia Bush & Chad Michael Murray: 5 months
Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush started dating in 2003, shortly after becoming co-stars on the WB’s One Tree Hill. They were married on the beach in Santa Monica in April 2005 and were divorced five months later due to Chad‘s infidelity. “I’m a big girl. I’m a strong girl,” said Bush regarding the split. “It’s not that I don’t respect other women in my position, but there are things I won’t forgive. I have too much going on in my life to focus on.”
#9 Charlie Sheen & Donna Peele: 5 months
Things were looking up for Charlie Sheen when he married Donna Peele on his birthday in 1995. Before Peele, his celebrity news files were stocked full of sex allegations, a cocaine overdose and a shooting incident. Alas, being married to Peele wasn’t enough of a reason for Sheen to tone down the scandal – he soon fell back into his old patterns, and the two were divorced after five months of marriage.
#10 Drew Barrymore & Tom Green: 5 months
American sweetheart, Drew Barrymore, and comedian Tom Green met in July 2000 on the set of Charlie’s Angels and were married on July 7, 2001. Sad for Drew that her marriage would be another example of how most celebrity relationships tend to end just as quickly as they had begun. They filed for divorce on December 17, 2001.
