Celebrities, they’re just like us! They get married to people they hardly know and then go through very public divorces (or annulments) less than a year later. Do you remember the shortest celebrity marriage? Hint…it lasted 55 hours!
Drew Barrymore & Jeremy Thomas
Drew has never been lucky in love. The actress and entrepreneur has been married—and divorced—three times. Her shortest union lasted just over a month! At the age of 19, she married a 32-year-old bar owner named Jeremy Thomas. The couple had only known each other for six weeks. Drew’s marriage to oddball comedian Tom Green lasted just over six months. When you’re a free spirit like her, rules like “’til death do us part” can’t hold you down.
Cher & Gregg Allman
Let’s get one thing straight: Cher is a national treasure, and we’re lucky to have her in our lives. But she has terrible taste in men. A few days after divorcing Sonny Bono, she and fellow musician Gregg Allman married in Las Vegas. Apparently, Cher hadn’t realized what living with a hard-partying, heavy-drinking rocker would be like. She filed for divorce after just 9 days. There’s not many people who can claim to have gotten divorced twice in less than a month!
Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
What are the chances that Kim only married him because his name fit into her family’s brand? The infamous Kardashian clan welcomed the basketballer player into the fold in 2011. Their televised wedding came with a $10 million price tag. 72 days later, Kim admitted that the marriage had fallen apart. The whole spectacle makes her marriage to Kanye seem almost sweet and old fashioned!
Britney Spears & Jason Alexander
Oh Britney. We’re still rooting for you, girl. But the pop star has made some seriously questionable choices in her personal life. She tops the list for the shortest celebrity marriages in history. Brit-Brit got hitched her childhood friend Jason Alexander (not the guy from Seinfeld—now THAT would have been a scandal!) in a Las Vegas ceremony back in 2004. The marriage last 55 hours. Not days—hours. The union was annulled, and Britney went on to marry and divorce K-Fed instead.
