Shortest Celebrity Marriages: Britney Spears, Drew Barrymore & More!

July 7, 2011

Ahhh, those crazy celebs. We write often about their break-ups, divorces, etc. Very rarely do we see a union that is in it for the long haul. Want to know who’s on the list of the shortest celebrity marriages? We’ve got it for you right here!

Britney Spears Jason Alexander

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander (no, not the Seinfeld actor) were childhood friends and wed in Las Vegas. They decided on a whim to just ‘do something wild and crazy’, according to Alexander. So off they went to the Little White Wedding Chapel. No sooner was the news hot off the presses that Spears’ attorney was already filing for an annulment. 55 hours later to be exact. His 15 minutes of fame was over in a heartbeat, but his name recycled again just last December after he told tabloid Star Mag that Spears confessed to him that her boyfriend Jason Trawick was allegedly abusing her. Spears’ camp vehemently denied the allegations.

Drew Barrymore 1

Drew Barrymore was just 19 years old when she wed Jeremy Thomas, a nightclub owner, after dating a mere six weeks. Can you guess how long (or short) this celebrity marriage lasted? 19 days! She later wed comedian Tom Green in 2001, only to file for divorce five months later.

Mario Lopez Ali Landry

Mario Lopez and Ali Landy were together six years before tying the knot, but unfortunately Landry found out after she wed that her new husband was unfaithful to her. Lopez revealed to Howard Stern that he hooked up with someone during his own bachelor party. Um, not good. Their marriage lasted two weeks.

Carmen Electra Dennis Rodman

Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman, an odd pairing no doubt, married on November 14, 1998. Their nuptials took place in Las Vegas, and as we all know, that town will make you do some crazy a$$ things. Do I speak from experience? I plead the fifth… Anyways, Rodman’s agent felt that he wsa inebriated (allegedly) at the time of the wedding. Nine days after saying their ‘I Do’s’, an annulment was requested by Rodman, claiming an ‘unsound mind’.

Robin Givens

In 1997, Robin Givens exchanged vows with her tennis instructor, Svetozar Marinkovic. It’s unclear what happened after the ceremony, but that same day Givens separated from her new hubby. Now that was FAST!

Dennis Hopper Michelle Phillips

Dennis Hopper and his Mamas and Papas singer wife wed in 1970. Eight days after their nuptials their marriage was over. What happened? According to Phillips, she claims he made sexual demands of her and handcuffed her so she could not leave. He denied those allegations. Of his marriage to her, he would later say, ‘Seven of those days were pretty good.’ LOL!

There you have it folks, some of the shortest celebrity marriages in the history books. What do you think of the above list?
