Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from hubby Kris Humphries after only 72 days. But she's not the first celebrity to bolt to the altar – and then to the divorce courts – in an unreasonably short amount of time. We count down some of the shortest celebrity marriages.
Four months – Renee Zellweger
It was an eyebrow-raiser of a marriage – Bridget Jones star Renee Zellweger and country singer Kenny Chesney. She applied for an annulment after only four months, citing "fraud" on the legal papers. She was later quoted as saying, that the term was "simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny's character".
Four months – Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen's first – and briefest – marriage was to Donna Peele. The couple made it to around the four-month mark in 1995 – the same year that Charlie was named as one of the clients of an escort agency. There are few things that ruin a marriage like prostitutes, and Charlie and Donna divorced in 1996.
Three months – Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley were married for three-and-a-half months before filing for divorce. The divorce proceedings took just shy of 18 months to be completed – that's around six times longer than they were married.
90 Days – R. Kelly
R&B star R. Kelly was allegedly married to singer Aaliyah – although their union was later annulled because she was only 15 at the time, although a supposed marriage certificate stated that she was 18 when she tied the knot. Her parents had the marriage annulled – although the couple deny they were ever married.
60 Days – Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson is well-known for her brief and crazy marriages (remember her marriage to Kid Rock?) – but her shortest one was to Rick Salomon (although he is possibly more famous for starring in that sex tape with Paris Hilton). These two were married in Vegas and split after 60 days. When Pamela filed for divorce, she cited "fraud" as the reason behind the breakup.
29 Days – Drew Barrymore
During her wild-child period during the late 1980s and the first half of the 1990s (which included stints in rehab and a memorable moment that saw her flash her breasts at David Letterman), Drew Barrymore married Welsh bar owner Jeremy Thomas after a brief courtship. They divorced after 29 days.
Two weeks – Eddie Murphy
Eddie Murphy and producer and studio exec Tracey Edmonds had a "non-binding" ceremony on New Year's Day in 2008 and promised to have a lavish ceremony a bit down the road. It never happened, and they broke up 14 days later.
Nine days – Carmen Electra
In what's been claimed as a "publicity stunt", Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman got hitched in Las Vegas. He filed for an annulment just nine days later – although, in their defence, they gave it the old college try and remained legally married for around four-and-a-half months after that.
Nine days – Cher
Just three days after divorcing Sonny Bono, Cher tied the knot with musician Gregg Allman after flying to Vegas in his private jet. However, she reportedly discovered (rather quickly) that his drug and alcohol problems were too much for her and filed for divorce after nine days.
Eight days – Dennis Hopper
Actor Dennis Hopper was pretty much the male version of Zsa Zsa Gabor – he was married five times and was, in fact, in the process of divorcing his last wife when he died in 2010. He tied the knot with Mamas & Papas singer Michelle Phillips (herself married five times) on Halloween in 1970. Their marriage was called off just eight days later.
55 hours – Britney Spears
Britney Spears married her childhood sweetheart, Jason Alexander, on a whim in Las Vegas (another one of those pesky Vegas marriages!) at 5.30am. Unsurprisingly, the marriage wasn't forever and after two-and-a-half days (55 hours, to be precise) their union was annulled – leaving her free to move onto another short-lived union with dancer Kevin Federline.
24 hours – Zsa Zsa Gabor
Nobody does it like Zsa Zsa Gabor. When she married lawyer/actor Felipe DeAlba, it was ruled that her previous marriage (to hubby of six years, Michael O'Hara) was not properly dissolved and their marriage was terminated. She's been married nine times – of those, she divorced seven times; had her marriage to Felipe annulled and remains married to Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt after 25 years.
