21 Celebrity Marriages So Short You May Not Even Know About Them
19. Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney
The whirlwind romance between Bridget Jones’ Diary actress Renee Zellweger and country star Kenny Chesney ended in a disappointing annulment after only four months of marriage. They first met in January at a benefit concert, and were married on May 9th in the Virgin Islands. They kept their romance very private — the first time they appeared in public together was two weeks before their wedding. Both Zellweger and Chesney made multiple public statements after their annulment, in order to quell rumors when they cited ‘fraud’ as the reason for their split.
20. Nicky Hilton and Todd Andrew Meister
In 2004, heiress and socialite Nicky Hilton decided to get married to long-time family friend Todd Meister after a drunken girls weekend in Las Vegas. The ceremony took place at 2:30 AM, and the only person in their wedding party was Nicky’s younger sister Paris. Less than three months later, they mutually decided to annul their marriage — they were rarely in the same place, and put much more value on their work than they did on each other.
21. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito
Bradley Cooper was briefly married to fellow actor Jennifer Esposito between 2006 and 2007. Luckily for them, their marriage ended amicably when they both realized after four months that it just wasn’t working out. Cooper has said that the experience didn’t change his view on marriage, and he’d like to give it another shot in the future. Esposito married again in 2014, but filed for divorce just a few months ago. Rumor has it that her autobiography that she published in 2014 contains some veiled references to Cooper’s “master manipulation,” which shows that maybe their marriage didn’t end as well as they said it did after all.
