They had a strong relationship for a few years. They discussed well whether they would take the step of getting married.
The ceremony took place in September last year. And yet, according to various media reports, Gwyneth Paltrow (46) and Brad Falchuk (48) filed for divorce again in February, barely four months after they got married. In Hollywood, however, they no longer look up for such glitz marriages.
These are the shortest marriages of celebrities at a glance.
Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas: divorced after 29 days
Drew Barrymore and a long and happy marriage, it doesn’t seem to have been awarded to her. In the spring of 1994, the then 19-year-old Barrymore got married to bartender Jeremy Thomas, but their marriage lasted barely 29 days. They were married at 5 in the morning at Jeremy’s cafe. In July 2001, Barrymore again lost her heart and made another attempt with comedian Tom Green, but their marriage was also over after five months. She was married to her third husband, art consultant Will Kopelman, for almost four years.
Axl Rose and Erin Everly: divorced after 26 days
‘Sweet Child o’Mine’, who don’t know the number? But did you also know that Axl Rose had written the song for his girlfriend Erin Everly at the time? The two got to know each other in 1986 when she played a role in the Guns N‘ Roses clip. The spark broke and four years later Axl Rose asked “his” Erin to marry in a very striking way: he threatened to commit suicide if she didn’t marry him. But barely 26 days later the two already announced their divorce. They did live side by side for a while, but after Erin had to deal with a miscarriage, they finally found their own way.
Sinead O’Connor and Barry Herridge: divorced after 18 days
Barely 16 days – from Sunday, December 8 to Christmas Eve 2011 – after she married her fourth fiance Barry Herridge, Sinead O’Connor announced that they were separating. O’Connor initially wanted to stop the breach, but since the media were already aware of it, she shared the news on her website. There she wrote that all external pressure was the culprit. “People from Barry’s environment who don’t know me personally have formed a bad impression of me. If Barry stayed with me, he would lose a lot,” she writes. “A woman must make her husband happy. If that means that she has to let him go, then she has to. Barry is a fantastic man. I still like him. But it was not smart to get married in a hurry.”
Mario Lopez and Ali Landry: divorced after 14 days
Former Miss USA Ali Landry will probably have a long time to complain about her marriage to Mario Lopez. She and the ‘Saved by the Bell’ actor got married in April 2004. Fourteen days later their wedding booklet could already be torn apart because Mario committed adultery, after which she wanted to divorce immediately. Meanwhile, Lopez has been happily married to actress Courtney Mazza for several years.
Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds: divorced after 14 days
Barely two weeks after their symbolic wedding, Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds had already put an end to their marriage in 2008. The couple said yes on New Year’s Day on a private island near Bora Bora, in the presence of friends, relatives and close friends. Murphy and Edmonds sent out a statement in which they explained that they were separating, but that they wanted to remain friends.
“After a long consultation and a great deal of discussion, we decided together that we would not enter into an official commitment. The symbolic ceremony in Bora Bora was a sign of our deep love, friendship and respect on a spiritual level, but we have decided to remain, as friends,” it sounded. Murphy and Edmonds had known each other since the fall of 2006. In July 2007, they became engaged.
Cher and Gregg Allman: divorced after 9 days
A wedding in Las Vegas, it remains a phenomenon. Just ask Cher, who barely got married three days after she divorced Sonny Bono to Gregg Allman from music band ‘The Allman Brothers’. Because Gregg could not resist the temptation of alcohol and drugs, their marriage lasted only nine days. Later the two found each other again and they had another son, named Elijah Blue. Then their romance was over after four years.
Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman: divorced after 9 days
Carmen Electra’s love life has long been a big mess. The actress always fell for bad men and did not hide that either. She married basketball player Dennis Rodman in the Little Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas in November 1998, but nine days later she applied for divorce papers. Reason? Rodman is said to have been under the influence during their wedding ceremony and while expressing his vows.
Dennis Hopper and Michelle Phillips: divorced after 8 days
The list of shortest celebrity marriages also includes a 1970 marriage commitment that lasted only eight days. The main characters were the American actor Dennis Hopper and blonde Michelle Phillips, who had created a furor as a singer for ‘The Mamas & the Papas’. A clear ‘beauty and the beast’ case, it was suggested. Although surprisingly enough, the actor noted that the first seven days of their marriage went very well. It was their second marriage for both Dennis and Michelle. Later both also stand three times in front of the altar.
Britney Spears and Jason Alexander: divorced after 55 hours
Get married twice in one year? Britney Spears did it in 2004. On January 3 of that year, childhood friend Jason Alexander put a ring on her finger in Las Vegas. The two had sunk together the night before and ended their ‘pub crawl’ in a wedding chapel. Britney woke up a few hours later with a literal and proverbial hangover. She had the marriage dissolved and, in fact, 55 hours after they gave each other their yes, the divorce was already a fact. In September Britney married dancer Kevin Federline, with whom she would have two sons. However, their marriage also failed in 2006.
Zsa Zsa Gabor and Felipe DeAlba: divorced after less than 24 hours
With no fewer than nine weddings, you would suspect that Zsa Zsa Gabor was not meant for a long and happy marriage. When she married Felipe D’Alba, the marriage certificate was barely signed, or the divorce papers were already filled in. Less than 24 hours after they were allowed to call each other men and women, their fairy tale was over. According to the official story because at that time Gabor was actually not legally separated from her ex-husband Michael O’Hara.
Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker: divorced after 6 hours
The prize for the shortest Hollywood wedding ever goes to the Italian actor Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker. The two decided to get married after a two-month relationship. But just six hours after their ceremony on November 6, 1919, Jean returned her cart. She closed her brand new husband outside the hotel room and immediately canceled the marriage. Rudolph, who became world famous with his role in ‘The Sheik’, tried to talk her over, but had to drip off and return home as a single.
