Kim Kardashian to file for divorce from Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage 

Kim Kardashian went from reality TV temptress to heartbreaker Monday, blindsiding her hoopster hubby by pulling the plug on their union after just 72 days.
Curvy Kim gave Kris Humphries a wicked Halloween fright by slapping him with divorce papers, showing that their supposedly fairy-tale wedding Aug. 20 - at least for her - was more reality TV drama than true love.
The couple reportedly raked in $10 million with their made-for-TV wedding at a private estate in Montecito, Calif. So their blink-and-you’ll-miss-it union broke down to about $139,000 per day.

10 Short-Lived Celebrity Marriages

You know the old saying; marry in haste and repent at leisure. It’s easy to scoff at celebs who rush in and out of love but let’s face it; most of us aren’t surrounded by beautiful people all day. Temptation is not all around us and if we were to make a big mistake, we don’t have a team of hotshot lawyers to get us out of it. The following weren’t matches made in heaven. ‘Till death do us part? Well, at least until the ink has had time to dry on the pre-nuptial agreement.

Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett

Married for 21 Months

Julia Quote: “What’s nice about my dating life is that I don’t have to leave my house. All I have to do is read the paper. I’m marrying Richard Gere, dating Daniel Day-Lewis…even Robert De Niro was in there for a day”. 


Julia was used to journalists linking her to several actors; some of the stories were even true! She canceled her planned wedding to Kiefer Sutherland with three days to go. Marriage to country star, Lyle Lovett, went ahead following a three-week affair and a romantic elopement in 1993. Their divorce was of the amicable kind and they state that they have remained friends. Country singers need a bit of heartbreak for their songs, after all. POOR GUY!!!

Charlie Sheen and Donna Peele

Married for 14 Months

Charlie Quote: “This feels like my first real marriage (to Brooke Mueller). The first one was a show, the second one was a con and this one is the real deal”. 


So, the first marriage to Donna Peele, by Charlie’s reckoning, was the ‘show one’, whatever that means. Sheen’s private life used to get more attention than his movie career due to drug problems and liaisons with porn actresses and call girls, notably Hollywood madam, Heidi Fleiss. He claimed that he had slept with 5,000 women. 

Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd

Married for 7 Months

Jennifer quote: “It’s hard for them (partners) to live in my shadow, knowing that they will never make the money I do”. 

The Egyptian Theatre

Dancer and choreographer Cris Judd met J-Lo when he directed her music video to promote Love Don’t Cost a Thing (that’s only true if you sign a pre-nup), and they married in 2001. Her first marriage, to Cuban chef Ojani Noa, had lasted for 11 months. Jennifer also had a relationship with controversial hip hop star, Sean Combs. The split from Judd occurred when Jennifer began a public liaison with Ben Affleck. The so-called Bennifer wedding was called off a few hours before the ceremony, with both stars citing media intrusion as the cause. 

Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock

Married for 5 Months

Pamela Quote: “I tend to just completely consume the men that I love. I’m such a romantic”. 


What does she mean by consume? Like a praying mantis? The Baywatch star likes whirlwind romances. She runs in slow motion but she gallops up the aisle. She married first husband, Tommy Lee from Motley Crue, after they had known each other for 96 hours. That marriage lasted three years and produced two sons. Musician Kid Rock became husband number two in 2006. This was the shortest one, narrowly beating the 6-month marriage between Pammy and poker playing Rick Salomon, which was annulled in 2008. 

Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney

Married for 4 Months

Renee Quote: “I suppose I don’t really have a type that I usually go for. I’ve never really gone for the ‘good guy’ or the ‘motorcycle guy’ or the ‘bad guy’”.


How about the country music singer guy? Following romances with Jim Carrey and Jack White of the White Stripes, Renee married Kenny after they had known each other for 5 months. The Caribbean island of St. John was the idyllic setting in May 2005. An annulment was finalized at the end of the year. Kenny expresses the pain of lost love in songs, such as Better As a Memory. 

Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley

Married for 4 Months

Lisa Marie Quote: “Look at the amounts Ben Affleck has lavished on J-Lo. When Nick opens his wallet, moths fly out”. 

Hudson Hotel

They married in Hawaii in 2002 in a hush hush ceremony. Lisa Marie’s first marriage lasted six years but her marriage to Michael Jackson in 1994 ended in divorce after 19 months. She has married for a fourth time, to her guitarist and producer. Lisa Marie was Cage’s second wife, following his first to actress, Patricia Arquette. 

Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas

Married for 6 Weeks

Drew Quote: “Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage”.


Let’s hope Drew didn’t tattoo Jeremy on her arm. This was Drew’s first marriage when she tied the knot with Welsh bar owner, Jeremy Thomas in 1994. Wedding bells had sounded when she was just 16 years old but the engagement was broken off.

Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman

Married for 9 Days

Carmen Quote: “I’m more attracted to a stronger man rather than a feminine man. Someone who would just throw me down and take control”. 


Maybe Dennis’s ability to slam-dunk was the attraction. Carmen, former Playboy model and Baywatch star, is many men’s fantasy. Her first marriage was to Dennis the Menace, the flamboyant basketball legend, in 1998 in Las Vegas. They were reputedly drunk at the time and the marriage was invalidated. 

Dennis Hopper and Michelle Phillips

Married for 8 Days

Michelle Quote: “I will say this about Dennis Hopper. We were married for eight days and truly…they were the happiest days of my life”


Although Michelle Phillips has said less flattering things about Dennis too, it must have been one helluva week. A marriage that doesn’t last as long as a tub of yogurt but brings such joy is a wondrous thing to behold.  

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander

Married for 55 Hours

Britney Quote: “With love, you should go ahead and take the risk of getting hurt because love is an amazing feeling”. 


There’s a short-lived marriage and there’s taking the piss. Britney’s troubles have been well documented in tabloid stories of bizarre behavior and addiction. There was media frenzy when the story broke that she had married her childhood friend in a Las Vegas wedding chapel in January 2004. Britney called it a mistake and the annulment was quick.

  1. Can't say I'm shocked about the news, but I feel kinda bummed that KK and Kris Humphries are divorcing. I was rooting for these two but I guess reality and reality tv are two very different worlds.
