We all make mistakes – not all marriages are destined for a fairytale ending, but it seems like the breakup turnover rate in Hollywood is way quicker – these stars go through partners like Kleenex! You might have forgotten these couples with infamously short marriages, but we didn’t – see the most notoriously brief marriages here!
1. Drew Barrymore and Tom Green — 5 Months
Two crazy Hollywood personalities were briefly married, but they spent more time joking around about getting married than they actually did tending to the relationship it seems. The two went through some intense experiences together, like Greene’s testicular cancer and a fire at Barrymore’s house.
2. Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson — 4 Months
The definition of a rock n’ roll couple went too hard and fast too make their love last (unintentional rhyme, sorry). It was described as “turbulent” and they had that notorious video filmed on a yacht.
3. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries — 72 Days
Kim is known for some wild stunts, but being married for this short of a period to a lunk like Kris Humphries is definitely up there. Apparently Kris thought she was using the marriage for fame and publicity, but from what we saw he didn’t look like too much of a gem to deal with either.
4. Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley — 3.5 Months
The rock n roll legend’s daughter Lisa Marie was with actor Nic Cage, and they filed for divorce after just 108 days. Apparently Lisa Marie’s relationship and opinions on ex Michael Jackson had to do with the demise of the relationship. Also, she was a scientologist then – that’ll do it!
5. R. Kelly and Aaliyah — 5 Months
This is a pretty controversial relationship that was annulled immediately after people learned of the true age difference and how illegal the marriage really was. She was 15 at the time and he was 25, which creeped a bunch of people out at the time, and understandably. They lied on the certificate and listed her as 18, but luckily after the new broke, Aaliyah broke all ties with R. Kelly.
6. Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush — 5 Months
Chad was a familiar heart throb back in the day, and for a fleeting moment, Sophia got a lucky moment to live out all our fantasies. She said on live TV, “We were two stupid kids who had no business of being in a relationship in the first place”. Ah, young love.
7. Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney — 4 Months
Renee dodged a bullet with this one! She’s way too bad to be hanging out with a country singer. Also, questionable annulment reason cited as “fraud”? There were rumors circulating the media that Chesney was gay, so we think there might be more to this story than the surface.
8. Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman – 4 Months
Wow. Clocking in at 9 days, this kooky couple might win. They definitely made an impression when they went out on the town together! The BFF of Kim Jong Un and the ex playboy model were together for only a year! Electra described the relationship as “stormy”.
9. Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria — 1 Year
Forgot about this couple, didn’t you? This couple dated for five years and finally tied the knot, but only lasted a little over a year. Guess some people are better as boyfriend and girlfriend rather than husband and wife.
