Its Over! Celebrity Marriages That Lasted Less Than a Year!

The lives of the rich and famous always seem so full of glamor and fantasy… but, these ten couples are all reminders of how celebrities are still people with messy lives… only, their mistakes are very public! Here are some of the shortest celebrity marriages (we saved the shortest for last!)

Kim Kardashian and basketball star Kris Humphries were married in 2011 and E! actually covered their $10 million wedding on a two-day special.  If their investment in air time was a reflection in their confidence that this marriage was made to last, they were mistaken. A little over two months in and Kim decided to call it quits. Kim continued to rise in popularity while the fame Kris enjoyed while married seemed to evaporate just as quickly… after a long, tortured annulment battle… You won’t be surprised by the next player…

At the ripe old age of 25, Colin Farrell thought it would be a good idea to marry 19-year-old Amelia Warner in Bora Bora. They had only been dating for about four months… which is how long the marriage lasted despite Farrell’s efforts to demonstrate his devotion with the name “Millie” tattooed to his ring finger. Some sources indicate the marriage was a fake from the start – the ceremony on the beach was just something to do on vacation and, apparently not legal. Well, the next lady had two impressively short marriages…

Pamela Anderson dated Kid Rock on and off for years before the two wild cats decided to get married on a yacht with the bride in a white string bikini. Alas, about four months later, legality did not stop them from choosing to be “off again.” Anderson tried again the following year with Rick Salomon and they were married for a whopping 60 days. When she filed for divorce, she claimed she was ending the marriage on grounds of “irreconcilable differences…” The next couple collaborated and mistook work chemistry with romantic compatibility.

Jennifer Lopez hired professional dancer Chris Judd for her video “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” The two married in September of 2001… and they were done by the following January. Guess they must have figured out that they couldn’t dance ALL the time! Jo Lo accepted an enormous engagement ring from Ben Affleck before her divorce was finalized, but, you know how that went! Next up, another lady with two quick marriages under her belt…

Drew Barrymore was 19 years old when she married 32 year old Jeremy Thomas… a Welshman and a bar owner who, likely, should have known better. They knew each other for 6 weeks before they decided to get married… and 39 days later, Barrymore filed for a divorce. Thinking she was older and wiser, she married funny man Tom Green in the summer 2001… the divorce papers were filed before you can say “Merry Christmas,” about five months later. Even less likely to make it than Green and Barrymore were the next odd couple…

Vegas brings out the crazy in people… even when they’re already wild before the plane touches down! Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman got married very early in the morning back in 1998. Rodman’s publicist was able to get him to admit he was “deeply intoxicated” and the honeymoon was over 9 days later when they filed for annulment. The next lady definitely had a thing for famous men…

Lisa-Marie Presley and Nicholas Cage were only married for about three and a half months… but, then, Elvis’ daughter was only married to Michael Jackson for nine months. With Cage, different sources claim which one filed for divorce, but, either way, the two publicly agreed they never should have married each other in the first place. How about a flash to the past after Sonny was out of the picture (well, almost…)?

Cher and Sonny Bono had just finalized their divorce before Cher turned around and married Gregg Allman in 1975. The couple trotted off to… you guessed it! Vegas! There, they enjoyed a 9 day marriage. Cher filed for divorce claiming she couldn’t deal with Allman’s substance abuse issues… or is that a face-saving way of saying, “Oops! Rebound!?” Next up, one of America’s favorite high school heart throbs…

Ali Landry married the “Saved by the Bell” star, Mario Lopez. They were actually together for six years before they tied the knot, so, it threw the world for a loop when the marriage was annulled 18 days later… apparently, Landry caught Lopez with another woman… Lastly, the shortest marriage on the entire list!

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander win the prize for hastiest nuptials! In 2004, Vegas enthralled these two lifelong friends and headlines blasted the news of their marriage loud and clear… and just as loudly when, 55 hours later, the marriage was annulled. Spears has been quoted as saying their marriage was a “joke that went too far.” Do you think that’s funny?
