15 Celebrity marriages which couldn't even last a year
15 celebrity couples who couldn't remain married for even a year.
Celebrity marriages are almost like a festival given how lavish they are and how involved the fans get. But getting married is one thing and remaining married, quite another. While it only takes a brief moment to fall in love and to feel that the love will last forever, the reality turns out to be quite the contrary. Here, we have 15 celebrity couples whose marriages couldn't even last a year, and the flames, as it were, died quite soon.
#15 Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd - 218 Days
Cris Judd was a professional dancer and appeared with Jennifer Lopez in the video of Love Don’t Cost a Thing. September 2001 was the month they got married and June 2002 was the month they separated. The reasons may have been personal but the marriage fizzled out immediately.
#14 Elizabeth Taylor and Conrad 'Nicky' Hilton - 205 Days
Elizabeth Taylor was merely 18 when she married Conrad Hilton. The couple did not even survive a year and Taylor also claimed Hilton of being verbally abusive, in her divorce proceedings. Needless to say, the couple lasted barely 205 days. Taylor, however, went on to have seven more divorces later.
#13 Drew Barrymore and Tom Green - 163 Days
Tom Green is a Canadian comedian and actor and when Drew and he got married in 2001, not many would have bet on the marriage surviving for long. Seen as an odd couple and never quite the right fit, they separated merely 163 days later.
#12 Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney - 128 Days
Kenny Chesney was a country singer and Renee, an academy award winner and hence not a lot of people saw the couple as a great fit. Four months later, Renee filed for divorce and cited 'fraud' as the reason. She went on record to say that the marriage was the biggest personal mistake of her life.
#11 Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock - 122 Days
The on-again, off-again, couple seemed like they were meant to be with both having superstar status and in relationship time and again. In 2006, they did decide to get married and Pamela may have looked gorgeous in her wedding bikini but the marriage itself wasn't pretty. 122 days on, they were already apart.
#10 Lisa-Marie Presley and Nicolas Cage - 107 Days
2002 was the year Nicholas Cage married Lisa in Hawaii in a grand affair. 107 days later, they had separated too, as Nicholas Cage filed for divorce. According to him, they shouldn't have gotten married in the first place, but it could only be seen as a cagey affair at best.
#9 Nicky Hilton and Todd Andrew Meister - 85 Days
Nicky Hilton, Paris Hilton's little sister married the businessman Todd Meister in 2004 which seemed like an impulsive decision at the moment. Turns out that they hadn't given it much thought either and the couple broke apart only after 85 days.
#8 Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries - 72 Days
Back in 2011, Kim Kardashian and basketball star Kris Humphries spent over $10 million to be wed. The wedding was nothing short of a spectacle but wasn't long-lasting. 72 days later, Kim had this to say, 'After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.'
#7 Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon - 60 Days
It was in 2007 that the Baywatch star married Rick Salomon, who you may know as the co-star of Paris Hilton sex tape. The exact reasons may not be known but the marriage did not last more than 2 months and Pamela cited 'irreconcilable differences' as her reason for divorce.
#6 Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas - 39 Days
When a 19-year-old marries a 32-year-old L.A. bar owner (Jeremy) after barely knowing him for over six weeks, chances are that the marriage would not last. Though there are cases where marriages have worked despite such differences but not in this case and the couple separated after 39 days in 1994.
#5 Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine - 32 Days
Theirs is an old story which happened back in 1964 and may not have come as a great surprise to their fans at that time. Both the partners had a history of divorce with Merman getting divorced four times and Borgnine's count at five. Their marriage lasted a grand total of 32 days.
#4 Ali Landry and Mario Lopez - 18 Days
Mario Lopez and model Ali Landry were known to have a long-standing affair and it was no surprise when they got married in 2004. Unfortunately, however, the marriage failed before it even began when it ended merely 18 days later due to rumors of Mario Lopez's cheating. Later, it emerged that the rumors were indeed true.
#3 Cher and Greg Allman - 9 Days
Not even a few months had passed since Cher got divorced from Sonny Bono, in 1975, that she went to Las Vegas with Greg Allman and got married. 9 Days later, the singing star filed for another divorce and claimed that Gregg's drug and booze abuse was way too much for her to handle.
#2 Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman - 9 Days
The year was 1998 and the place was Las Vegas. Carmen Electra got married to Dennis Rodman and it is believed that they did so in the intoxicated state. What was to be? The marriage, therefore, lasted not more than 9 days and the couple got an annulment done.
#1 Britney Spears and Jason Alexander - 55 Hours
It happened quite a while ago in 2004 when the two childhood friends got married. Apparently, the marriage happened after a night of partying and the result was an annulment 55 hours later. Talk about short-term plans!
