Celebrities are notorious for getting married and getting divorced at a moment’s notice. While Twitter is hot on the #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage trend, Kim Kardashian’s marriage is certainly not the shortest marriage of all time. Can you guess the shortest marriage of all time: 10 days? 2 days? 24 hours?
You’ll just have to read the list to find out!
Michael Jackson & Lisa Marie Presley: 18 Months
Twenty days after divorcing her first husband, Lisa Marie and Michael Jackson got married. This has got to be of the strangest relationships on the list. The two bonded during the molestation allegations against Jackson. She proved to be a positive influence in his life. She pushed him to settle out of court and to go to rehab for drug addiction. The marriage eventually ended because of Jackson’s drug addiction.
Jennifer Lopez & Chris Judd: 6 Months
Wait, this was J.Lo’s 2nd marriage right? Her first one to Ojani Noa didn’t even make it a year while this one only lasted 6 months. I guess this is what happens when you marry your back up dancer in a whirlwind romance. This is by far Jenny’s most forgettable marriage compared to Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony and her 2+ year relation with Puffy. The question is…what the hell is Chris Judd doing now? He married a woman named Kelly Wolfe in 2009…thanks Wikipedia.
Janet Jackson & James DeBarge: 4 Months
This secret marriage happened in 1984 when Janet was just 18 years old. The marriage only lasted four months and was an admitted mistake. I’m just going to chalk this up to young love and growing up the spotlight. The juicy twist to this is the rumored love child that these two had. You have no idea what I’m talking about? Just Google it.
On October 31, 2011, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce only 72 days after her fairytale wedding to basketball player Kris Humphries. Hate to say I told you so!
Eddie Murphy & Tracey Edmonds: 2 Weeks
On January 1, 2008, Eddie married Babyface’s ex in a ceremony off of Bora Bora. The marriage only lasted two weeks though. When the couple split, conveniently they didn’t have to file for divorce because the marriage wasn’t legal in the first place.
Mario Lopez & Ali Landry: 2 Weeks
Did you know Mario Lopez was married? I sure as hell missed that memo! Mario Lopez and Ali Landry wed on April 24, 2004. The couple filed for divorce only 14 days later because of Mario’s infidelities. Mario claims that he cheated on her days before the wedding. Props to Ali for getting out ASAP.
Carmen Electra & Dennis Rodman: 9 Days
We had a sneaking suspicion that this wouldn’t last considering they were MWD (married-while-drunk). The model/actress married the flamboyant basketball player one drunken night in Las Vegas in 1998. Luckily for them, the marriage was invalidated because of their inebriated state. This wouldn’t Carmen’s first marriage that didn’t last. In 2003 the model/actress married musician Dave Navarro and the couple split in 2007. Perhaps the 3rd time will be the charm for Carmen?
Britney Spears & Jason Alexander: 55 Hours
55 hours?! This might be the shortest marriage ever. These two childhood friends tied the knot in Las Vegas in January 2004. Brit quickly called it off siting that it was a “mistake.” He said it was fueled by drugs. She said it was a joke gone too far. Either way, this was definitely a sign of the troubles to come for the young pop star. After her later marriage to Kevin Federline came the shaved head and then a full on breakdown. Luckily, Brit seems to be doing ok these days.
Robin Givens & Svetozar Marinkovic: 1 Day
Okay, I know you’re thinking Sveto-who? Model/actress Robin Givens did marry again after her tumultuous marriage to boxer Mike Tyson. In 1997 Robin married a tennis instructor named Svetozar Marinkovic. The two separated the day they wed and Givens officially filed for divorce months later. Oops!
