10 Hollywood Marriages That Lasted Less Than 3 Months
Nov 2, 2011
With the Kardashian/Humphries divorce, I got to thinking about marriage in Hollywood. While there are a lot of couples that beat the Hollywood curse, like Kelly Preston and John Travolta, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick and plenty of others, Kim is not the first one to end a marriage in under 3 months. I thought it'd be fun to see who else may have used marriage for a publicity stunt or didn't do their marriage homework before walking down the aisle.
Gabor married her 8th husband, Count Felipe de Alba (wonder if there's any relation to Jessica?) and had it annulled the next day. One day! You'd think that a couple could last longer than the wedding day. Maybe they realized that that was going to be it, the only happy time they'd have and after 8 marriages, I'm sure Gabor knew when it wasn't going to work right away.
Britney has said that she just wanted to see how marriage was and she was in Vegas with a good friend, someone she cared about, when she decided to marry Jason. She later referred to it as a joke that went too far. But, we all remember what that did for her career...it sure as heck didn't help it.
Remember this one? The ultimate fast paced, rock star relationship only lasted 9 days in the land of commitment. Rodman annulled the marriage which beat his old record of an 82 day marriage citing unsound mind and fraud. There were reports that he was intoxicated during the nuptials. But, when was that different from any other day?
The actress and the bar owner dated for six weeks before getting hitched. A month later, Barrymore filed for divorce. Wow, after six weeks they weren't meant to last forever? I guess that's when the Hollywood timeline starts confusing reality's timeline. In Hollywood, like high school, six weeks seems like, FOREVER.
Though they both had two failed marriages under their belts, each, that didn't keep them from buying into the old cliche, third times a charm. Apparently, it's not. Borgnine garnered more fan attention than Merman, which made her incredibly jealous. "By the time we got home," Borgnine said, "it was pure hell."
So, a model and a comedian marry in Yosemite...honestly, I'm surprised it lasted that long. She probably figured the money wasn't worth dealing with him. But, luckily for Kattan he'd heard this joke before and had a prenup all ready.
Nic Cage, a huge Elvis fan, married Presley on the 25th anniversary of Elvis' death. Presley later admitted that the marriage had been a huge mistake. Cage filed for divorce citing that ever popular and mysterious "irreconcilable differences".
