10 Short-Lived Celebrity Marriages We Forgot About
Ah, celebrity romance…quick, fleeting, and often forgotten. While a handful of star couples have gone the distance — Faith and Tim, Jay and Bey, Bert and Ernie — the unfortunate truth is that most celeb marriages don’t end with happily ever after.
Although there are hundreds of well-documented divorces in Hollywood, including the break-up of Russell Crowe’s marriage to Danielle Spencer, there are a surprising number of splits that manage to stay out of the spotlight. Here, we’ve rounded up the all-time best forsaken marriages…
Angelina Jolie & Jonny Lee MillerWho knew there was life before Billy Bob? After getting married in '96, the duo only lasted as Mr. and Mrs. for 18 months.
Bradley Cooper & Jennifer EspositoThe notorious playboy (and People magazine's 2011 Sexiest Man Alive!) tied the knot with our fav Blue Bloods star, but divorced four months later in '07.
Mario Lopez & Ali LandryTurns out playing womanizer AC Slater on Saved by the Bell wasn't too far of a stretch for Lopez. Landry split from her husband of two weeks in 2004 after rumors of infidelity.
Nicky Hilton & Todd MeisterAh, a Vegas marriage cut too short. The impromptu wedding between the 21-year-old hotel heiress and her 33-year-old husband was quickly annulled back in 2004.
R Kelly & AaliyahThe union between these two has been speculated for over a decade. The rapper allegedly married the late singer when she was just 15-years-old. Bet that didn't go over well with her father.
Jim Carrey & Lauren HollyThey found love in a hopeless place (otherwise known as the set of Dumb and Dumber).
Drew Barrymore & Jeremy ThomasAmerica's favorite wild child wed her first husband when she was only 19. We all know how that ended.
Olivia Wilde & Tao RuspoliWilde was only 18 when she wed her Italian prince. They lasted eight years -- a good run, but not forever.
Macaulay Culkin & Rachel MinerOur favorite child actor grew up way too quickly after marrying Miner when they were both just 17-years-old. Surprise, surprise...their union lasted only two years.
George Clooney & Talim BalsamTalim marks the first and only wife for this famously single star. Although the marriage didn’t last, she’s still the only woman to ever convince Clooney to walk down the aisle (and we’re certain many others have tried!).
