21 Celebrity Marriages So Short You May Not Even Know About Them
In Hollywood, any couple who can make their marriage last more than three years deserves a medal. There aren’t many celebrity couples who can make it to five years, much less eight, which is the national average. Although we know that Hollywood stars generally divorce quickly, nothing can compare to the marriages on the list below, which lasted such a short time we barely remember that they even happened.
1. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Maybe she fell in love with him because their names are similar? Or maybe she was just attracted to his wealth and prestige before she realized that she could use her B-list celebrity status and curvaceous figure to snag an even bigger celebrity. Either way you slice it, the Kim/Kris marriage, that lasted 72 days, will go down in history as a match made entirely in gold-digging heaven.
2. Britney Spears and Jason Alexander
In 2004, right before her famous breakdown, Britney Spears flew her childhood friend Jason Alexander to Vegas for the weekend to party with her. There, after an evening of drinking and doing drugs together, she suggested that they get married, and he agreed. After they woke up in the morning, the story was all over the tabloids, and Spears promptly got the marriage annulled, a mere 55 hours after they tied the knot.
3. Nicolas Cage and Lisa-Marie Presley
In 2002, Nicolas Cage and Lisa-Marie Presley, his wife of less than three months, got into a fight about Michael Jackson’s treatment of his children. Lisa-Marie was defensive of Jackson, saying that he wouldn’t have meant to hurt his child when he dangled him over a balcony. Cage was insecure, and questioned Presley angrily about her relationship with Jackson, her previous husband. The fight led to the dissolution of their brief marriage, as Cage filed for divorce just two weeks later.
