Marriage is a big step for anyone, whether you’re a celeb or the average person. But for stars who live a fast life, they can make impulsive decisions that don’t exactly have the long-term in mind. The combination of hectic schedules, endless temptations, and fairytale dates are a formula for disaster, and this chaotic lifestyle can lead celebs to latch themselves onto whatever feels grounding at the moment. But there are lots of proof that shotgun weddings won’t last far into the future — just look at these celebrities who were only married for hours, weeks, or months.
1. Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike
Nicolas Cage has been married more times than we can count, and unfortunately, not too many of them have had a long shelf life. After all, he did stay married to Elvis Presley’s daughter for four months. In March 2019, he got married to makeup artist Erika Koike, and then filed for annulment four days later. Evidently, his bride didn’t reveal her criminal history or legal troubles, and Cage called the marriage a “fraud.”
2. Britney Spears and Jason Alexander
This goes to show that even if you were friends in childhood, it might not pan out into a lifelong romance. Alexander got an invitation from Spears to fly to Vegas on a jet, and they got married 11 hours after, wearing jeans and casual outfits. When they told their family, drama ensues, and they then appeared for an annulment.
3. Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman
This couple’s relationship was filled with drama — it was a classic tabloid, whirlwind romance that culminated with the two getting married in Vegas. Only a year later, they divorced, but apparently Dennis tried to break it off just 7 days after they wed. It’s insane how couples can date for months but as soon as marriage is put on the table, everything changes.
4. Mario Lopez and Ali Landry
Lopez got married to his girlfriend of six years, Ali Landry, back in 2004. Then, just 14 days later, she filed for divorce, because she discovered he had been cheating on her for a while but didn’t find out until after their nuptials were already done. She got random calls from girls and to this day he still denies it! Ali is a total 10 and we’re happy that she’s moved on to a healthier relationship nowadays, with Alejandro Monteverde.
