It’s true that few celebrity marriages last forever, and many Hollywood stars go on to marry over and over again. Nonetheless, the failed marriage of Kim and Kris is is one of the shortest we can remember. She’s in good company, though—here’s a look at the shortest celebrity marriages.
Lest we think flash-in-the-pan weddings are a modern phenomenon, back in the day this pair split right after the honeymoon. According to Ernest, Ethel was upset that no one recognized her abroad. This union lasted 31 days.
Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd
In retrospect 20 months seems less a failure than an achievement. “Irreconcilable differences,” indeed.
One might assume this marriage, Taylor’s first, was shortened to make room for the other seven, but she attributes its failure to her naivety. She was nineteen at the time, with no idea what she wanted. It was over in eight months.
Britney Spears and Jason Alexander
