Short-Lived Celebrity Marriages

November 12th, 2011 3:00pm EST

Kim and Kris A couple of weeks ago Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from her NBA husband Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage, more days than what some critics first predicted. Kardashian and Humphries had their wedding televised on the E! Channel and shared their wedding pictures with all the major tabloids. But after all of the TV specials and magazine spreads, their marriage is now over and will be long forgotten as soon as Kardashian marries another athlete or rapper. Like Kim and Kris' short-lived marriage, there have been other Hollywood marriages that were destined for divorce from the day of the proposal. Here are several celebrity marriages that didn't last very long.

Dennis Rodman & Carmen Electra

Marriage duration: 5 months

No one is exactly sure what Carmen Electra was thinking or drinking when she decided to marry "The Worm" Dennis Rodman, who married himself two years earlier to promote his autobiography "Bad As I Wanna Be." The "Baywatch" beauty wed the NBA rebounding champion in November 1998 on an early morning in Las Vegas. Rodman admitted afterwards that he was heavily intoxicated when the two got married. Electra filed for divorce from Rodman five months later, but the two remained together for several months. Their relationship would soon end in November 1999 after the couple were arrested and charged with misdemeanors on battery and domestic charges.

Britney Spears & Jason Alexander

Marriage duration: 55 hours

Many Spears fans are too young to remember that Britney was married for a short period of time to her longtime friend Jason Alexander. Britney doesn't even remember the marriage herself because she was so drunk that night. The marriage was annulled and lasted just over two days. The annullment petition read: "Plaintiff Spears lacked understanding of her actions to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to marriage." During this time, Alexander used his fifteen minutes of fame to talk to every tabloid and talk show about Britney Spears and the short-lived marriage. Fast forward to 2011, Spears is still successful while Alexander is somewhere in the desert, never to be heard or seen from again.

Mario Lopez & Ali Landry

Marriage duration: 2 weeks

Mario Lopez and Ali Landy were the perfect cute couple. For six years they walked the red carpet together and were always seen in public embracing and being intimate with each other. Their marriage in April 2004 was a match made in heaven until Landry found out that Lopez had been cheating on her throughout their relationship. There's even rumors that she found out he was unfaithful at a bachelor party. Ali anulled the marriage after 18 days.

Jennifer Lopez & Criss Judd

Marriage duration: 8 months

Jennifer Lopez is notorious for having short-term relationships. After her 2 1/2 year relationship with Sean "Diddy" Combs, Lopez married her back-up dancer, Cris Judd. The two wed in September 2001, but "Love Don't Cost A Thing" to J-Lo as she ended her relationship with Judd in June 2002 and started dating Ben Affleck. Judd found out about the split not from J-Lo herself, but from media outlets. Their divorce was finalized in January 2003.

Nicolas Cage & Lisa Marie Presley

Marriage duration: 3 months

It's hard to count how many times Lisa Marie Presley has been married and divorced, but we do know that she was married to Michael Jackson for almost two years. Presley met Nicolas Cage in 2000 and the two garnered media attention for their on and off again relationship. They married in August 2002 in a secret ceremony in Hawaii. The relationship proved to be a marriage made in hell and their union was annulled after 108 days. Cage filed for divorce from the "King of Rock and Roll's" daughter in November 2002, and the divorce was finalized in May 2004. Presley later admitted, "they shouldn't have been married in the first place."

Renée Zellweger and Kenny Chesney

Marriage duration: 4 months

Renée Zellweger and country singer Kenny Chesney first met at a Tsunami event and decided to tie the knot after a five month relationship. They had a private ceremony on the Carribean Island of St. John in May 2005 and shared their wedding photos with tabloids. But what seemed like a union that would last happily ever after turned out to be a relationship full of lies and dishonesty. Zellweger filed for divorce fourth months later, citing "Fraud" as the reason for the separation. Zellweger contends that the term was used as legal language and has nothing to do with Chesney's character. Maybe Renée didn't think Kenny's tractor was sexy like he implies in his hit single - " She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy."

Eddie Murphy & Tracey Edmonds

Marriage duration: 2 weeks

Eddie Murphy's marriage to film producer Tracey Edmonds failed more horribly than his film, "The Adventures of Pluto Nash." Murphy and Edmonds got married in a private wedding on New Years Day in 2008 on the island of Bora Bora, but the ceremony was not recognized by the United States. Murphy and Edmonds planned to have a legitimate wedding in the U.S., but the couple decided to remain together without tying the knot. Eddie later released a statement saying, "After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further." Eddie and Tracey broke up soon after.

Pamela Anderson & Kid Rock

Marriage duration: 4 months

Pamela Anderson loves bad boys and after her tumultous marriage to Tommy Lee, she walked down the aisle with Kid Rock in July 2006 in Tropez, France. Anderson wore a bikini to the wedding while Kid wore a white T-shirt and a baseball cap. The celebrity couple's holy matrimony wasn't so holy after a few months of being married to each other. Kid Rock's temper and jealousy, like his infamous tirade during a screening of the film "Borat" which featured Pamela Anderson in several scenes, led to the annulment of their marriage in November 2006.

Pamela Anderson & Rick Salomon

Marriage duration: 5 months

Pamela Anderson sure didn't learn her lesson after divorcing Kid Rock. In September 2007 she announced her engagement to Shannen Doherty's ex-husband and Paris Hilton's sex tape co-star, Rick Salomon. Anderson and Salomon married in October 2007 at The Mirage in Las Vegas. But like Anderson's previous relationships, this one wasn't meant to be either. The two separated in December 2007, and Anderson filed for divorce in February 2008 citing fraud for the reason of separation.

Tom Green & Drew Barrymore

Marriage duration: 5 months

Drew Barrymore had an earlier short-lived marriage in 1994 when she was just 19 years old. She married Jeremy Thomas, a Welsh bar owner. That marriage lasted only six weeks. Seventeen years later, Barrymore wed comedian/actor Tom Green after the couple dated for several months. After much speculation and teasing the public of the wedding date, Barrymore and Green wed on July 7, 2001. Their relationship proved to be a stressful one as Tom battled testicular cancer and Drew's house was burned down. Green filed for divorce in December 2001. The divorce was finalized on October 15, 2002.
