Hollywood has a notorious history for scandalous love and quick ending marriages. Sometimes there’s a juicy story behind it, but in most instances it’s because their lives are highly publicized anyway. So what’s the shortest any celebrity has been married? The answer may surprise you! Here’s our countdown of the shortest and most famous Hollywood marriages ending in divorce:
Lisa Marie Presley and Nicolas Cage: 3 months. Their split in 2002 helped Presley learn her lesson on quickies as she’d already been married to Michael Jackson for just 9 months before. “I’m sad about this, but we should not have been married in the first place.”
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries: 10 weeks. The queen of reality shows spent $10 million on her wedding and filmed it all for her show on E! but after only 72 days of marriage, she filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. The world watched the unraveling on TV.
Mario Lopez and Ali Landry: 2 weeks. After dating for 6 years, the couple tied the knot in April 2004 but Landry filed for divorce when she said she’d found proof of his infidelity.
Britney Spears and Jason Alexander: 55 hours. Wed in our own city of Las Vegas in January of 2004, the marriage was annulled only 55 hours later. Spears has since called it “A joke that went too far.”
Rudolph Valentino and Jean Aker: 6 hours. After an impulsive marriage in 1919, immediately after the ceremony Jean began to have second thoughts and locked her new hubby out of their honeymoon suite.
Many couples cited that they were too young and it happened too fast. Others confess that they did not take the time to find a mate that was right for them. Yet others dated for years before they married, but ended the marriage soon after. No matter the reason, they sought their legal right to end their union in the best interest of their happiness.
