Shortest Celebrity Marriages Ever



There’s nothing better than seeing two talented, attractive, and super-rich celebrities join together in holy matrimony. The world is also full of failed celebrity marriages that were over before we could say “prenup.” Some couples lasted a few years, others lasted a few months, while there were other unfortunate souls who barely lasted a few weeks.
That’s not all, though. There are some celebrity marriages on this list that lasted just a few hours. These couples have tried to brush these failed marriages under the carpet, but the internet doesn’t forget…

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds – 15 days

Katy Perry and Russell Brand – 14 months

While many people questioned the American singer and her British comedian boyfriend to begin with, fans congratulated the pair when they tied the knot in 2010.

They divorced after just 166 days.

Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen – 312 days

These two first met on the set of Saturday Night Live in 2008, and they became husband and wife just one year later. However, their marriage lasted just over eight months.

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus – 8 months

There was once a time when Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus were the cutest couple on the block – but then they weren’t. This on-and-off-again couple tied the knot in December 2018, and many hoped that this would beforever. But these two got divorced just eight months later.

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander – 55 hours

It’s Britney’s first marriage that really gets everyone talking, because she was married to Jason Alexander for just 55 hours.

The love affair between Eminem and Kim Mathers is legendary. These two were childhood sweethearts, and they were together for almost a decade before they decided to tie the knot in 2002.

Cher and Gregg Allman – 9 days

It seems as though this whirlwind romance happened a little too quickly, as these two got hitched just one week after Cher’s divorce from Sonny Bono. The couple tied the knot in a Las Vegas hotel room, and rumors suggest that it didn’t take long for Gregg to celebrate on his own. It’s been reported that he left his new bride in the hotel room to take illicit substances that night. They split up 9 days later.

Elizabeth Taylor and Conrad ‘Nicky’ Hilton – 205 days

Well, it seems as though Conrad ‘Nicky’ Hilton stole the show as Elizabeth Taylor’s very first husband – and she picked a good one.

This couple tied the knot in 1950, but according to Elizabeth Taylor, she knew that their marriage was over when their honeymoon ended.

Chris Kattan and Sunshine Tutt – 59 days

There’s no doubt about the fact that we were all a little shocked to learn that Chris Kattan and Sunshine Tutt were an item.

Just seven months later, it was confirmed that the couple had parted ways and had filed their divorce papers.

Nicky Hilton and Todd Andrew Meister – 85 days

Nicky Hilton didn’t splash too much cash for her wedding to Todd Andrew Meister. That’s probably because they had only been dating for two months before they decided to head to Las Vegas for a quickie wedding.
