Shortest Celebrity Marriages
Not all celebrity marriages are known for their long lasting commitment. Whether they break up because of too much ego or lack of time together, keeping a famous marriage together is no easy task. Check out the couples who didn’t last past the honeymoon period or, in some cases, until the honeymoon.
BRITNEY SPEARS & JASON ALEXANDER
The pop princess’ first marriage, to her longtime friend Jason Allen Alexander, lasted for a whopping 55 hours in January 2004, meaning it took that long for the pals to realize they better get in the annulment line—which in Las Vegas is at least next to the buffet line.
MARIO LOPEZ & ALI LANDRY
These two were together for six years but apparently the real getting-to-know-you period occurred during their two weeks of marriage in the spring of 2004 before the annulment.
DREW BARRYMORE & JEREMY THOMAS
The 50 First Dates star was only 19 when she married the Welsh bar owner after only 6 weeks of dating back in 1994, but she was old enough to know she was ready for a divorce after less than two months of marriage.
PAMELA ANDERSON & RICK SALOMON
Vegas strikes again! The Baywatch star and the professional poker player tied the knot in Sin City on Oct. 6, 2007, but after separating that December Anderson sought an annulment on Feb. 22, 2008, citing fraud—only to agree to remarry Salomon in January 2014. However, that extra roll of the dice didn’t pay off, as they were divorced by April 2015.
LISA MARIE PRESLEY & NICHOLAS CAGE
Elvis Presley‘s daughter and the National Treasure star tied the knot Aug. 10., 2002, 10 days after Cage proposed. He reconsidered 108 days later, filing for a divorce that was finalized on May 16, 2004.
KIM KARDASHIAN & KRIS HUMPHRIES
Seventy-two days after marrying the NBA player in a lavish ceremony in Montecito, Calif., on Aug. 20, 2010, the E! star decided he wasn’t Mr. Right after all and filed for divorce.
BRADLEY COOPER & JENNIFER ESPOSITO
The two actors married on Dec. 30, 2006, and filed for divorce the following May. The general consensus is that the “Master Manipulator” Esposito referred to in her memoir Jennifer’s Way was Cooper.
PAMELA ANDERSON & KID ROCK
They spent a lot of time getting married, having four wedding ceremonies in July 2006, including a bikini-tie affair on a yacht, but Anderson jumped ship four months later.
DREW BARRYMORE & TOM GREEN
It’s the funnyman who filed for divorce from the Charlie’s Angels star in December 2001, five months after they tied the knot.
JENNIFER LOPEZ & CHRIS JUDD
J.Lo’s second marriage started on Sept. 29, 2001, and was over by June 2002, making it a hair shorter than her 11-month first marriage, to Ojani Noa.
KATY PERRY & RUSSEL BRAND
What started off with a romantic wedding in India on Oct. 23, 2010, ended up with an emotional Perry mourning the end of her 14-month marriage in her 2012 concert documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me after Brand informed her via text that he was filing for divorce.
JOHNNY DEPP & AMBER HEARD
The Rum Diary co-stars made for a volatile mix, with Heard filing for divorce in May 2016 after about 15 months of marriage.
