                            10 shortest Hollywood marriages: Nicholas Cage, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian and more

Hollywood may be magical, but it definitely isn't the place for true love that lasts forever. While most of these couples swear to be together till death tears them apart, the promise clearly doesn't stick around. From marriages that have lasted as long as two weeks to just a couple of hours, here is a list of the shortest Hollywood marriages ever:

10. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries:  72 days

Kim married NBA star Kris quite suddenly in 2011 and soon after the wedding special aired on E! as a part of their reality show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', Kim called it quits. People have accused her of pulling a publicity stunt to get viewers for her show but Kim has always insisted that it was all true lurve.

9. Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon: 60 Days

The couple married the co-star of Paris Hilton's sex tape in Vegas in 2007, before filing for a super quick divorce less than ten weeks later, citing the classic "irreconcilable differences".

8. Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas: 39 Days

Before she was a 'Flower' entrepreneur, Drew Barrymore was doing all kinds of crazy things. Back in 1994, she tied the knot with bar owner Thomas. The two knew each other for about six weeks before they got hitched. 

7. Axl Rose and Erin Everly: 26 days

Of course Axl Rose had a quickie marriage under his belt. The couple's short time together in 1990 is said to have been dotted with abuse for Everly. In a pretty weird proposal, Axl threatened to kill himself if she didn’t marry him and so they went to Las Vegas and had a spontaneous wedding there. 

6. Ali Landry and Mario Lopez: 18 Days

The couple married in 2004 but almost immediately split up. The former 'Saved the Bell' actor Lopex married girlfriend of six years Ali Landry. But, as fate would have it Ali found out that Lopez had cheated and she called it off. 

5. Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds: 14 days

Back in 2008, after throwing a lavish ceremony to celebrate their love with family and friends in Bora Bora, the couple decided they had had enough. The two dated for two years before the wedding and rumor was that Edmonds refused to take Murphy's last name causing the relationship to fall apart.

4.  Cher and Gregg Allman: 9 days

This one too was a Vegas wedding. Electra and Rodman tied the knot Vegas-style in 1998 and later, called it quits saying he wasn't in his senses.

2. Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike: 4 days



 

These two tied the knot in March 2019, also in Vegas but Cage filed for an annulment in just four days. We don't know what went wrong yet. This is Cage's fifth mariage and Koike's second.
