Famous Celebrity couples in the world who separated before their first anniversary.
Everybody loves it when two famous people get together. Unfortunately, some relationships end before they reach the first-anniversary milestone.
Staying married in the entertainment business is no small feat. Not every celebrity couple can stay wed for decades, like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson or Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedwick. Those pairs are real success stories and are small in numbers compared to the celebrity couples who ended up divorcing.
Those couples are far greater in number. Sometimes famous couples end up spending too much time apart, and other times they realize that they were far too mismatched to ever make it to forever. These ten famous celebrity couples were doomed from the get-go. In fact, their marriages were so ill-fated that they never even made it to their first wedding anniversary.
10-Britany Spears And Jason Alexander
Britney Spears was the biggest name in entertainment and pop culture when she decided to marry her childhood friend, unknown Jason Alexander, in Law Vegas. She had flown Alexander out to Sin City and said "I Do," on New Year's Eve while wearing a crop top and cut off jean shorts.
The next morning she told her mom and her manager, and everyone went into damage control mode. The marriage was annulled fifty-five hours later under the grounds that Britney didn't understand her own actions, making it one of the shortest celebrity marriages ever.
9- Mario Lopez And Ali Landry
Actor Mario Lopez and Ali Landry's marriage only lasted for two weeks, and Lopez is one hundred percent to blame for its demise. Before their wedding day, Mario had entertained another lady at his bachelor party.
A picture was snapped of the encounter, and someone shared it with Ali's sister, who then showed it to the new bride. Landry dropped her new hubby in a heartbeat. Lopez later admitted in his memoir that he never truly loved Landry, ouch!
8-Milla Jovich And Shawn Andrews
Milla Jovich was a wild child back in the day. Like many celebrity couples, Jovich met her first husband on set. She met her once hubby, Shawn Andrews while filming Dazed and Confused. The young starlet was only sixteen years old when she and Andrews booked it for Las Vegas and got hitched.
Jovich later revealed that she only walked down the aisle to score a bank card and get back at her mother. Mother dearest had the marriage annulled three months after it took place. Teenagers are a tough business.
7-Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries
Before Kanye, there was Kris Humphries. Kim Kardashian 's second marriage was to the sweet and wholesome basketball player. Their ill-fated marriage only lasted for seventy-two days.
Because of Kris's no shows on court dates and his desire to squeeze millions from his wealthy ex, the former couple spent more time trying to get divorced than they did staying wed. Their divorce was finalized twelve days before Kim's first daughter, with her third husband, Kanye, was born.
6-R. Kelly And Aaliyah
Some celebrity couples have disturbingly huge age gaps, and this next couple certainly fell in that group. Aaliyah sadly passed away in an untimely plane crash, but before her sad passing, she had reportedly wed controversial R & B singer, K. Kelly. The story goes: a nearly thirty-year-old R. Kelly made a then fifteen-year-old Aaliyah his wife.
Because she was not an adult, this union, if it truly existed, was likely not valid or even legal. Legend has it Aaliyah's parents stepped in and had the marital arrangement annulled after three months. Aaliyah is no longer on this earth to clear up the story, and R. Kelly refuses to ever speak on it.
5-Carmen Electra And Dennis Rodman
Something two wild hearts meet up and create insane chemistry. A perfect example of this , would be celebrity couples Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra. While the two never denied that they had mad spark, the spark doesn't always translate into a marriage.
These two eccentric characters only stayed married for five months before Carmen filed for divorce from her free-spirited husband. In hindsight, we think that dissolving this union was probably for the best.
4- Renee Zellweger And Kenny Chesney
Like many celebrity couples, actress Renee Zellweger and country crooner Kenny Chesney met back in January of 2005, and the two were wed on a romantic beach only four months later. While the world really wanted this marriage to work out, sadly it did not.
The pair divorced after only five months of wedding bliss. That mean's that the couple met, got engaged, married, and divorced all in under a year. Chesney later claimed that the marriage tanked because he panicked.
3-Bradley Cooper And Jennifer Esposito
Actor Bradley Cooper has dated his fair share of lovely ladies, recently breaking things off with his longtime model girlfriend and mother to his daughter. Many people don't know that this newly minted bachelor has actually been married before.
Irina couldn't get him to walk down the aisle, but actress Jennifer Esposito did. The celebrity couple wed in 2006 but were divorced a short four months later. According to the pair, the union just wasn't right.
2- Pamela Anderson And Kid Rock
Pamela has been with a pretty formidable number of famous bad boys, so no one was exactly surprised when she decided to become Mrs. Kid Rock. In 2006, Kid Rock and Pam made their love official by celebrating with three different weddings.
First, this celebrity couples got hitched in France, then they tied the knot in Beverly Hills, and lastly, the couple said their "I Dos" in Nashville, Tennessee. Once all of the parties and celebrations were over and done with, the two decided that they were better off apart, and they divorced four months later.
1- Nicolas Cage And Lis Marie Presley
Nicolas Cage loves all things, Elvis, so he jumped at the idea of marrying the king's only daughter, Lisa Marie. Neither Cage nor Presley had great marriage track records heading into their relationship, and they parted ways after about three months of marriage.
Lisa Marie once compared herself and her ex to a couple of pirates, who were simply bound to sink their ship. Perhaps that was something they should have further explored before walking down the aisle?
