Top 15 Quickest Celebrity Marriages

Updated on May 30, 2014

Relationships can be tricky sometimes. Just when you think you have found “the one” something happens and you’re on your own again. It may seem like love at first sight but a few months later you may be wondering why you even started dating the person in the first place. When you date someone you are trying to see if you are compatible or incompatible with another person. Dating often helps people recognize whether they truly have feelings for one another or if they don’t. Dating is a good way to weed out the wrong people. However, sometimes people date and think the other person is wonderful and marriage soon follows, but somewhere between dating and getting married something goes terribly wrong. Celebrities seem to have this problem the most. There have been a lot of celebrities who have had shorter marriages than I have had a gallon of milk in my refrigerator. Something seems to spoil very suddenly once these celebrities say the words “I do”. Below is a list of the top 15 shortest celebrity marriages. You may notice that a few of the celebrities are repeat offenders, which makes you wonder who the true problem is in the relationship.

# 15 Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria 11 MONTHS

Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria dated for five years prior to marrying in 1999. Helen was most well known for her sitcom series “Mad About You” and Hank Azaria was best known as one of the voice on “The Simpsons”. 11 months into the marriage Helen filed for a divorce citing “irreconsilable differences”. Obviously during the five years of dating the two hadn’t gotten to know each other enough because they couldn’t even make it a year after marrying.

Married: 11 Months

# 14 Jennifer Lopez and Chris Judd 9 MONTHS

J. lo met Judd while he was a backup dancer in her “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” music video. They soon married, however this was not Lopez’s first marriage, it was her second. Her first marriage was to Ojani Noa which lasted 11 months. However, Judd and Lopez only lasted 9 months prior to breaking up, but Lopez didn’t take long to move on to Ben Affleck in what would become one of the biggest super couples of the 2000s. Soon the monster “Bennifer” was created and the media was full of “Bennifer” pictures and updates, however, that relationship fizzled too, but not before Affleck and Lopez were engaged. Lopez went onto marry a third time to Marc Anthony this time sticking with the marriage for 7 years. At least she finally broke the year mark, that has to count for something right?

# 13 Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray 5 MONTHS

Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray were co-stars on the television series “One Tree Hill” when they began dating. Soon they were married but five months later their union ended. Rumors spread that Murray has been unfaithful with a certain other celebrity (Paris Hilton) and Bush could not forgive his transgressions. The two however remained co-stars on the series “One Tree Hill” for years after their divorce and even played love interests on the show! Talk about awkward!

Drew Barrymore and Tom Green met while filming “Charlie’s Angels”. This strange couple dated for almost year prior to marrying. Barrymore stuck by Green during his battle with cancer and house fire. They married in July,2001 and divorced in December, 2001. Green filed for divorced citing “irreconcilable differences”

# 11 Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney 4 MONTHS

This odd coupling were married after only dating for a total of four months. They had a spread in People Magazine and gushed about their love for one another. However, 4 months later they separated citing “fraud” as the reason behind their split. The media had a field day and speculated what exactly the “fraud” could have been. The joint statement they released together only made things stranger. "The miscommunication of the objective of their marriage at the start is the only reason for this annulment." What exactly that miscommunication was still needs to be discovered. This will go down as one of the stranger divorces.

4 Months

Esposito and Cooper

# 10 Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito 4 MONTHS

Not much is known about this epic failure because it barely made a blip on the Hollywood marriage radar. The two married in 2006 and divorced four months later. Cooper has been quoted as stating “It’s just something that happened” and Esposito has been quoted as saying “It wasn’t right”. Whatever happened you think the two would have stopped to figure this out prior to getting married. Esposito has recently released a new book in which she talks about an old relationship. Esposito states the mystery man from the past was“funny, smart, cocky, arrogant and a master manipulator” She then goes onto to say that the mystery man had a “mean, cold side that could flip on a dime”. Many have come to the conclusion that she is speaking of her ex-husband Cooper, and Esposito has not denied these assumptions.

# 9 Lisa Marie Presley and Nicolas Cage 108 Days

Lisa Marie Presley had previously been married to Michael Jackson for 9 months, which oddly enough OUTLASTED her 108 days marriage to Nicolas Cage, which brings to question, just what kind of crazy is Cage if Presley could stay married to Jackson for 9 months but couldn’t even make it to the 120 day mark with Cage. Girls stay clear of Cage something shady is going on there. The two married in 2002 but couldn’t make it last. Even Cage’s love for Lisa’s father Elvis Presley wasn’t enough to keep these two lovebirds together.

108 Days

Kid Rock and Anderson

# 8 Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock 114 Days

You were probably starting to wonder when Anderson would show up, well ask and you shall receive. Pamela Anderson is one of our repeat offenders, she will appear with another love later on our list, and however, this time she married hard rocking Kid Rock in 2006 during one of her “breaks” from on and off ex-husband Tommy Lee. These two had three separate weddings one on a yacht, one in a courthouse, and another on a stage in Nashville. However, it doesn’t look like threes a charm. Stick with one wedding next time and save some money for the divorce.

114 Days

R. Kelly and Aaliyah

# 7 R. Kelly and Aaliyah 90 Days

Now I really fought with myself about whether to include this one because Aaliyah was one of the greatest performers of my lifetime but the “Yuck” factor was just too big not to include it in the list. The “Yuck” factor I’m talking about is none other than R. Kelly who married Aaliyah in 1994 while they were collaborating on a song. However, their marriage was highly illegal, since Aaliyah was only 15 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME!!!! The marriage was annulled due to Aaliyah’s age but R. Kelly’s preference for younger women seemed to stick around.

90 Days

# 6 Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries 72 Days

When Kardashian and Humphries married in 2011, I don’t think anyone was surprised that they divorced a mere 72 days later… this is Kim Kardashian we are talking about, celebrity made via sex tape. The two had been dating since 2010 and their wedding was played out on a TV like the circus it was. There was a large delay in the divorce hearings because she wanted a divorce and he wanted an annulment stating that the marriage was a fraud and the fact that it would negate the pre-nup agreement. At the time this was Kardashian’s second marriage but unless you have been living under a rock (trust me you are lucky) she has recently married a wonderful new catch Kanye West, but I’m sure you haven’t heard of him. Fingers are crossed she makes it to day 73 this time around.

72 Days

Anderson and Salomon

# 5 Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon 60 Days

Not wanting to let her fans down…. Anderson made sure she made another appearance on the list, however this time it wasn’t to a rocker it was to Rick Salomon? Well whoever he is, Paris Hilton, the two married in Vegas during a break between Anderson’s performances on a magic show. Quite the multi-tasker our Anderson is. Anderson filed for divorce 10 weeks later citing “irreconcilable differences”

60 Days

# 4 Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds 14 Days

Murphy and Edmonds married in the French Polynesia in 2008, however, before making the wedding legal in the United States the two just canceled their USA wedding and went their separate ways instead. The two decided to remain friends instead. I guess they got a re-do or a freebie. So does this technically count for this list???

14 Days

# 3 Mario Lopez and Ali Landry 14 Days

Winning sleezeball of the century goes to dimple smiling, now father of two, who in 2004 married Landry. Requirements for winning sleezeball of the year include but are not limited to being caught cheating on your soon to be wife during your BACHELOR PARTY!!!!! Pictures of Lopez’s indiscretions were released into the media but sadly not before poor Landry already said “I do”. Lopez has since come clean and confessed to cheating on Landry during his bachelor party. Boy what a role model Lopez will make for his young daughter. If anything she has learned not let her fiancé go to Mexico for his Bachelor party.

14 Days

Rodman and Electra

# 2 Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra 9 Days

Lasting slightly longer than a woman’s time of the month, these two married in 1998 in a quickie Vegas wedding. Rodman filed for an annulment 9 days later stating he was drunk during the wedding. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. Somehow after the initial filing of the annulment the two were able to stay together for another four and half months before Electra filed for divorce.

9 Days

# 1 Brittney Spears and Jason Alexander 55 Hours

As soon as the public found out Spears and Alexander had married they found out that they received an annulment. This marriage was shorter than a bad hangover. Spears and Alexander were childhood friends who married in yet another quickie Vegas wedding. (Warning: DO NOT GET MARRIED IN VEGAS IN A QUICKIE CEREMONY!) Spears wore a fabulous white trucker hat and an ab bearing top with cut of jean shorts. However, as soon as the court doors open the annulment was in the works.

55 Hours

      Never realized there were so many short-lived marriages out there. Some may think I'm being a cynic...but I think I'm simply being a realist...I'm sure Kim & Kanye will find their way on this list soon. Voted up!
