Marriage and coupledom will always be a hot, special scoop. The sight of a glowing, happy bride and her dashing groom will never be gone from the popular imagination and media- and Hollywood has a plenitude of this on and off-screen. From long-lasting celebrity affairs to the shortest liaisons the world has ever seen, Hollywood will never be rid of the most notorious, most bizarre, most romantic, and most surprising couples in history. From stars like Jennifer Lopez and Nicolas Cage, let us now delve down into the list of Hollywood’s shockingly short marriages.
1. Britney Spears and Jason Alexander
The whirlwind 55-hour marriage of Britney and Jason is one of the shortest in Hollywood’s long history. The award-winning singer and one of the brightest pop stars of her generation had a Vegas wedding and honeymoon with her childhood friend, Jason, from Louisiana back in 2004. Within the same year as their annulment, Britney married Kevin Federline and had two sons with him. She is, at present, engaged to Tehran-born personal trainer, Sam Asghari.
2. Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike
The Leaving Las Vegas actor shared a very brief four-day marriage with makeup artist Erika Koike before filing for divorce due to intoxication. The two got married in Las Vegas in 2019, with Cage saying that he was under the influence of alcohol at that time and was not aware of Koike’s intimate involvement with another party– which are the reasons for the annulment. Koike, meanwhile, filed for “spousal support” from Cage saying that her reputation received a blow from this break up. At the moment, Cage is married to Riko Shibata (who he met in Japan), and they are expecting their first baby.
3. Mario Lopez and Ali Landry
The two-week marriage of Landry and Lopez was a big headline on celebrity news back in 2004. Landry revealed later on, after a few years, that she found out about Lopez’s cheating prior to the big day, saying there were some reports and a gut feeling. Ali is now happily married to the man of her dreams and is a great mom to her two kids.
4. Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock
The gorgeous model and actress who graced numerous TV shows and Playboy magazine covers enjoyed almost four months of marriage with songwriter and rapper Kid Rock. There are reports that the two ended their partnership due to Kid Rock seeing Anderson’s climax scene in Borat. In the divorce files, however, “irreconcilable differences” were the culprit.
5. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian shared a seventy-two-day marriage with NBA player, Kris Humphries back in 2011 after dating for nine months. The split was allegedly due to them “not getting along” and that Kim “feels like she made a mistake”. Their divorce was finalized back in 2013, and the SKIMS founder is now seeing SNL cast Pete Davidson after her divorce with rapper Kanye West to whom she shares four children.
