7 celebrity marriages even shorter than Kris and Kim’s

Less than a month after this photo was snapped, Kim filed for divorce.

Everyone is acting totally astounded over how quickly Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, but lest we forget, people, this is quite typical for celebrities!

Kris and Kim are certainly not alone in their short-lived union. Plenty of celebrity spouses have called it quits in less time than it takes for most of us to redeem our Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and remind ourselves of all the celebrity marriages that lasted even less time than the 72-day wedded bliss of Kris and Kim.

Zsa Zsa Gabor takes the wedding cake for shortest celebrity marriage. She got her marriage with Felipe DeAlba annulled after less than a day. Turned out, she wasn’t officially divorced from her previous husband anyway. She decided not to remarry DeAlba, though, reportedly saying, “He bored me. He’s a playboy and I’m a hard working actress.”

Who can forget the drunken nuptials of Britney Spears and her childhood friend Jason Alexander? If there is any indication that a marriage will fail, it might be that the wedding happens at 5:30 a.m. in Vegas.  They were only married for 55 hours.

Now, we thought these two were a match made in heaven, but apparently Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman had a different idea: Annulment after 9 days. We can’t begin to speculate what could have possibly gone wrong.

Eddie Murphy and producer Tracey Edmonds were all smiles at first, but it wasn’t long before their marriage came to an end. By not long, we mean 14 days. Hey, they gave it their best shot. We can’t imagine Eddie Murphy being anything less than the greatest husband ever.

Aren’t these two just the picture of domestic life? Erin Everly and Axel Rose tied the not, not once, but twice. It’s hard enough to imagine Axel Rose making that kind of commitment even one time — but he did, and the marriage lasted a whopping 26 days. The pair wed again later, staying married for nine months that time. The lesson here? Don’t marry a rockstar… and then don’t do it again.

Pamela Anderson is no stranger to short marriages, but darn it, we really thought it was the real thing when she married Kid Rock. After that beautiful wedding at sea, the couple called it quits about four months later. Pam, will you ever find love?

Amazingly, a marriage with Tom Green isn’t Drew Barrymore’s only embarrassing wedding flop. The actress spent 29 days married to Jeremy Thomas. She didn’t learn her lesson though, and later went through a divorce with Tom Green after about five months of marriage.
