19 Celebrities Who Divorced So Fast, You Probably Missed Their Marriage Altogether

Ad failed to load

My parents were married when they were 21 years old and nearly 35 years later, they are still together. But they will also be the first to tell you that they have no flipping idea how they did it. After all, they were young, financially unstable, and had every odd stacked against them when yours truly arrived less than a year after they tied the knot. Of course, if they had been in Hollywood, they would have been screwed. After all, there is a long list of celebrities who divorced so fast, you probably missed their marriage altogether.

Yes, the odds are against celebs, according to statistics. The likelihood of a first marriage lasting at least a decade was 68 percent for women and 70 percent for men between 2006 and 2010, according to the National Survey of Family Growth. Another 2016 study by TIME showed that women tend to stay in their first marriage if they get married after the age of 26 and the union is financially stable.

But something tells me the cash flow paired with Vegas outings and fast lifestyle that can only come with being a celebrity might also have something to do with it. Just a hunch.

Clocking in at just 55 hours of marriage, this pair had to be in the top spot on this list. Spears married her childhood friend Alexander during a Vegas ceremony in 2004, but had paper work in motion by the next afternoon to have the marriage annulled, according to Rolling Stone.

Like Spears, the NBA all-star and Baywatch actress wed in 1998 during a Sin City ceremony, reported USA Today. The marriage lasted for nine days. Years later, Electra opened up to Oprah about the marriage saying it was passionate, but "when it was bad, it was the worst."

3Mario Lopez & Ali Landry

"That was a situation where I was not mature and man enough," he told Stern.

The good thing is, we both realized it ... Sometimes you just realize it. It just wasn't right. It's interesting ... Things happen!"

Yes, Barrymore makes this list twice — this time around with her marriage to Tom Green. The pair parted in 2001 after nine months of marriage, but they simply stated "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their divorce, according to E! News. In a statement released to the press, Barrymore said, "Yes, it is true we have decided to part. I love Tom very much. He has always been a great friend and that won't change." Green, on the other hand, said, "Drew is a wonderful woman, I love her very much. I wish our marriage could have worked out; I wish her much happiness."

15Eminem & Kim Mathers

When the couple was married the second time around — yes, second — in January 2006, they lasted just 11 months, according to People. But it's no surprise: The pair is known for having a volatile relationship.

19Rudolph Valentino & Jean Acker


You most likely missed this split for one very specific reason — it took place in 1919. But it didn't last beyond their wedding night, so it was a must on this list. Plus, the silent film stars' romance is loaded with scandal, including a lesbian love triangle and Acker locking Valentino out of their hotel room, keeping them from consummating their marriage, according to POPSUGAR.
