Hollywood whirlwind romances are but common. Celebrities hook up and break up all the time. Some couples even went the extra step and got married. Unfortunately, the number of divorces in Hollywood is insanely high. Here are 10 of the shortest marriages among celebrities.
10. Jennifer Lopez & Cris Judd
Length of Marriage: 4 months
Jennifer Lopez has been married several times. But her shortest was with celebrity choreographer Cris Judd. After the two split, Judd walked away $15 million richer. Lopez on the other hand, had a new diamond engagement ring on her finger, courtesy of Ben Affleck. But that marriage didn’t last long either.
9. Nicolas Cage & Lisa Marie Presley
Length of Marriage: 3 months
Lisa Marie Presley is the daughter of the King of Rock n’ Roll Elvis Presley. She was previously married twice before tying the knot with Nicolas Cage. However, their relationship was as tumultuous as what she has had with Michael Jackson. Cage and Presley has had an on and off relationship for a year. Even so, they decided to get married – a marriage that lasted for only 107 days.
8. Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
Length of Marriage: 10 weeks
It was a lavish, fairytale wedding that every woman wants. But none of it went right. Reality star Kim Kardashian and basketball player Kris Humphries have to call it quits after 72 days of being married. So it goes to show that even the three costume changes and the 4-hour wedding special couldn’t save a marriage. Those things were just good for TV.
7. Chris Kattan & Sunshine Tutt
Length of Marriage: 8 weeks
Chris Kattan of the Saturday Night Live fame married his beautiful model girlfriend Sunshine Tutt in a lavish wedding in California. Chris was never happier, but unfortunately, the marriage didn’t work out right. But he was still smiling even after the divorce because he prepared a pre-nuptial agreement. Maybe he too doubted all along that his marriage will ever last.
6. Drew Barrymore & Jeremy Thomas
Length of Marriage: 6 weeks
Barely 20 years old, Drew Barrymore decided to marry Welsh bartender Jeremy Thomas on a spur of emotions. Then she has decided to call it all off after six short weeks. Actually, they split within 19 days. But the divorce wasn’t just made official until then.
5. Eddie Murphy & Tracey Edmonds
Length of Marriage: 2 weeks
Comedy actor Eddie Murphy tied the knot with movie producer Tracey Edmonds in a very private ceremony in a faraway island. Some say that their marriage doesn’t count at all, as the island people who married them just did it for the ceremony, not necessarily for the legalities. Somehow, what happened was great for both of them, as there wouldn’t be any nasty divorce cases to worry about.
4. Mario Lopez & Ali Landry
Length of Marriage: 2 weeks
You’d think that Mario and Ali is a beautiful couple. But their definitely marriage isn’t. They dated for six years and that marriage seems to be the next sensible thing to do, right? Wrong. A cheater will always be a cheater and that’s what Ali discovered in less than two weeks after their marriage.
3. Dennis Rodman & Carmen Electra
Length of Marriage: 9 days
If your marriage failed to last for 10 days, then getting tied down was definitely a bad decision. That was what basketball star Dennis Rodman and Baywatch beauty Carmen Electra found out. Well, they were married in Las Vegas which was mistake No. 1. And they did it at 7am which was Mistake No. 2. They merely realized all the wrongs nine days later.
2. Britney Spears & Jason Alexander
Length of Marriage: 2 days
Pop icon Britney Spears’ marriage to her childhood friend Jason Alexander is yet another Las Vegas mistake. But unlike the previous two couples, they filed for divorce in a much faster fashion – 55 hours after the wedding. Britney claimed that what just happened was just a joke that had gone way too far.
1. Rudolph Valentino & Jean Acker
Length of Marriage: 6 hours
The first on this list were two of the American classic actors, Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker. In an impulsive marriage that happened in 1919, Acker realized too late that she had just become a wife. She locked herself inside the honeymoon suite, leaving her husband knocking helplessly for 20 minutes. He went home and that became the end of their marriage.
