17 of the Most Short-Lived Celebrity Marriages of All Time

KIM KARDASHIAN AND KRIS HUMPHRIES (72 DAYS)

Celebrity weddings often get the spotlight.  After all, these are some pretty famous people we’re talking about, and they’re always in the media’s eye.  Hence, if they decide to tie the knot with their significant other, it’s bound to be huge news.  Yet, not every one of those marriages end with a happily ever after.  In fact, there are some marriages which end a lot quicker than you can actually spell out your complete name.  Yes, we’re exaggerating, but when you check this list, you’ll see what we mean.

NBA Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian once tied the knot, you know. However, it took them just 72 days before they decided to avail of the services of a divorce lawyer. That’s right, that’s a little over 2 months. However, it’s pretty unsurprising since their romance, which lasted 6 weeks prior to tying the knot, was quite a whirlwind in its own right. Oh well, Kim’s happily married to Kanye West now, so… Whatever.

LISA MARIE PRESLEY AND NICOLAS CAGE (3 MONTHS)

Lisa Marie was already involved in a rather brief romance with Michael Jackson before she hired the services of a divorce attorney to get away from all the controversy. Hence, when she married Nicolas Cage, you thought she’d finally have the marriage her father would’ve wanted for her. Yet, kooky ol’ Nic here was probably a bit too eccentric for her to handle. They were only married for a period of 9 months before a divorce lawyer had to help them file for divorce. Yep, this one we didn’t even remember until now.

CHARLIE SHEEN AND DONNA PEELE (5 MONTHS)

It’s funny how perspectives changed in just a matter of months. Charlie Sheen once thought of Donna Peele as the angel “sent from heaven”. He seemed so madly in love with her that they ended up getting married in 1995 on the day of his 30th birthday. However, he eventually took back what he said about Donna and called up a divorce attorney. They split just after a short 5 months.

EDDIE MURPHY AND TRACEY EDMONDS: 2 WEEKS

Eddie Murphy was dating producer Tracey Edmonds back in fall 2006. They were so deep in love with each other that they decided to get married just two years. However, it did come as a surprise to Eddie’s fans that they ended up separating two weeks after the wedding ceremony held at Bora Bora. Opting not to make their union recognized as legal, they remained very good friends even after hiring a divorce lawyer. At least they’re okay about it.

SHANNEN DOHERTY AND ASHLEY HAMILTON (5 MONTHS)

Doherty was technically a bad girl who played an also-bad girl on the hit TV show “Beverly Hills 90210.” Hence, when we first heard that she was getting married to George Hamilton’s son, Ashley, we were pretty surprised. Surely, this was just another showcase of her rather rebellious ways. Aside from that, they only knew each other for a span of 2 weeks. That’s why we thought it was a rushed decision, and we definitely were right once we heard that a divorce attorney was called to settle their divorce.

BRADLEY COOPER AND JENNIFER ESPOSITO (4 MONTHS)

This was definitely a short lived marriage. It wasn’t even given that much media attention, registering merely as a blip on the radar. Bradley often refers to this point of his life as “something that happened.” As if it wasn’t an important life changing event to him at all. Well, 4 months after getting married and hiring a divorce lawyer afterwards doesn’t really make us want to remember anything special about it either.
