Jenny from the Block almost made our list twice with her other short-lived marriage (to OjaniNoa, 13 months), but we’ll be nice! JLo and Cris decided to call it quits after 218 days, but kept up public appearances as man and wife for an extra month.

Most people thought the coupling of these two oddballs would never last – and they were right! After tying the knot in July of 2001, this crazy pair was filing for divorce before Christmas that same year. Better luck next time Drew!

One Tree Hill fans the world over were jumping for joy when these onscreen lovers tied the knot in real life in April 2005. Sadly, the off-screen romance didn’t last, and the couple announced their separation in September 2005. To make things extra uncomfortable – the couple had to continue working closely together on the show.

17. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito – 4 months

This hottie from The Hangover franchise, Bradley quietly married fellow actor Jennifer in December 2006. Esposito filed for divorce a few short months later, blaming the demise of their marriage on Cooper’s callous personality.

These two rockers actually seemed like a great pair! Both loving the rock star lifestyle and with their hard-partying ways, it seemed like they would somehow make it work. After getting married on a yacht (with Pam in a white string bikini, of course), they sailed away into wedded bliss – at least for a few months.

15. Lisa Marie Presley and Nicolas Cage – 108 days

“I’m sad about this, but we should not have been married in the first place,” Presley said after their split. “It was a big mistake”. They wed on August 2002 on the Big Island of Hawaii, just 10 days after Nick proposed. Unfortunately, the divorce proceedings lasted longer than the marriage.

14. R.Kelly and Aaliyah – 90 days

At only 15 years old, now-deceased singer Aaliyah and singer, songwriter and notorious bad boy R.Kelly got hitched in a secret ceremony. The marriage certificate listed under-age Aaliyah as 18, and the illegal marriage was later annulled by her parents three months after. The pair denied ever being married.

13. Nicky Hilton and Todd Meister – 85 days

Paris’ less famous sister Nicky decided to take the classy route and get hitched to her businessman beau Todd in Vegas. Just as spontaneously as they decided to get married, they decided to have it annulled less than three months later. Shocking.

12. Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian -72 days

Kim’s large derrière fits in nicely at the middle of our list. While 72 days isn’t the shortest celeb marriage out there, it has to be one of the most infamous. After shelling out $10 million dollars for her lavish, over the top nuptials to NBA player Kris, the fun came to an end with Kim stating: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned”. We’re all still wondering whether the love was real, or just a made-for-TV special.

11. Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon – 60 days

Oh look who it is! Pam makes our list twice, with another quickie marriage to Salomon, who is probably best known as Paris Hilton’s co-star in that famous sex tape. Pam married her beau in Vegas in between takes of a show she was filming. As bad of an idea as that sounds, they made it last almost 10 weeks, after which Pam filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences”.
