8+ Celeb Marriages That Failed Almost Right Away

When it comes to marriage in Hollywood, short-lived ones are nothing new.

Celebs have been getting hitched and unhitched in a hot second since the dawn of time. Even Elizebeth Taylor was married eight times...

But none of that comes close to these 10+ celeb marriages that lasted, oh, about five minutes.

1. Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters

Everyone thought it was fate when these two rekindled their love this year and got hitched in Malibu (they dated 30 years ago).

But sadly, that wasn't the case.

The Baywatch star told The Hollywood Reporter that the two decided to "take some time apart" and put off the "formalization of our marriage certificate."

2. Mario Lopez and Ali Landry - 18 days

Infidelity was at the root of this longtime couple's sudden divorce.

The talk show host confessed to cheating during his wild bachelor party in Mexico.

"I was not ready to settle down. I wasn't man enough to know how to go about handling it," the star confessed on "The Howard Stern Show."

"There was nothing glaringly wrong on paper: I thought, 'She's beautiful, she's a good girl, she comes from a great family, she'd make a great mom…I confused cold feet with not being ready."

3. Britney Spears and Jason Alexander - 55 hours

What happened in Vegas did not last long...

On New Years in 2004, Britney married — and then quickly unmarried — her childhood friend, Jason Alexander.

"It was me being silly, being rebellious, and not really taking the responsibility of what I was doing, you know?” she later explained.

That wasn't the only quickie marriage for the singer.

She was also married to Kevin Federline for only two years.

4. Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike - 4 days

You can blame this short marriage on a lot of secrets coming out after they wed on March 23, 2019.

For one, Cage sought an annulment, citing being too intoxicated as the reason. He also wasn't aware of the makeup artist's “relationship with another person.”

5. Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman - 9 days

Surprise, surprise. Another shotgun wedding!

Basketball star Dennis Rodman filed for an annulment from the actress due to him not being in a "sound" aka sober mind, during the ceremony.

While they later reconciled, the marriage ended officially six months later.

6. Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd - 213 days

When J-Lo walks down the aisle with fiancé Alex Rodriguez sometime this year, this will be her fourth time doing so.

In 2001, she got married to her "Love Don't Cost a Thing" music video backup dancer, Cris Judd.

Being in the spotlight was difficult for Cris. "You’re no longer a normal person," he told "Us Weekly."

In the end, things ultimately just "didn't work out."

"But you know, I can't give you the answer as to why her relationships don't work. I think that it's that it is work. It's whether you want to work on it or not."

7. Fred Armisen and Elizabeth Moss - 8 months

There was nothing amicable about the two star's infamous split after eight months.

She once told Page Six: "One of the greatest things I heard someone say about [Fred] is, 'He's so great at doing impersonations.But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me, that sums it up."

8. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries - 72 days

It was the 72-day marriage talked about all over the world.

After only one year of dating, these two former lovebirds got hitched in a $10 million ceremony.

For those who watched Kim and Kourtney Take New York, they were able to see just why things fizzled out only months later.

9. Katy Perry and Russell Brand - 14 months

The singer might be engaged to Orlando Bloom now, but once upon a time, Perry was in a very tremulous relationship with Brand.

Case in point: they got engaged after only four months and when the actor-comedian asked for a divorce, he did so through text...

10. Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting - 21 months

A whirlwind romance was the downfall for this former couple.

Cuoco got engaged to the tennis star after only three months.

They wed in an intimate New Year's Eve ceremony months later.

Bliss soon turned to disdain, however, as Cuoco soon filed for divorce and even said that Sweeting ruined marriage for her.


11. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth - 8 months

This one still stings.

After the two lovers finally rekindled things, fans were hopeful that this was it.

Sadly, they filed for divorce eight months after they wed, with lots of cheating and substance abuse allegations coming out shortly after.
