Kim Kardashian is getting divorced after only 72 days. That's only two and a half months. Apparently celebrities are especially susceptible to being married for very short periods of time. Here are some that were so short they make Kim's look long, and some that lasted a bit longer and make Kim's look short, sort of like when she'd stand next to her future ex, Kris Humphries.
Less Than 24 Hours
Zsa Zsa Gabor and Felipe DeAlba: Of course Zsa Zsa Gabor owns every Hollywood marriage record. When she married this lawyer/actor it only lasted for one day because it was ruled her previous marriage wasn't properly dissolved. Sorry, Kim, but no one does it like Zsa Zsa.
Britney Spears and Jason Alexander: These two childhood sweethearts got married on a whim in Vegas at 5:30 in the morning. It should be written into the constitution that all whims in Vegas at 5:30 in the morning should be immediately forgotten. This marriage certainly was, after only two and a half days, or 55 hours to be exact. What ever happened to Jason? He was cute!
Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman: This odd couple got married in Vegas in what seemed like a publicity stunt. Or a big mistake. He filed for an annulment nine days later, though they remained legally married for about five months. These kids really gave it a shot.
Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds: The two had a non-binding ceremony on New Year's Day 2008 and vowed that they would have a big, splashy Kardashian style wedding back home later. But, like the third Nutty Professor movie, it never happened. They broke up 14 days later.
Axl Rose and Erin Everly: The rocker and the girl who inspired Sweet Child o' Mine (and a daughter of an Everly brother) married a couple times, but the first time was in Vegas and they had it annulled after just 26 days. They got married again and it lasted for nine months before they divorced again. Then Everly made a career of talking about Axl's abuse.
Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas: Remember when Drew Barrymore was all crazy and bisexual and doing insane things in the '90s? Well, this was one of those episodes, and the pair got married after a very brief courtship. But "29 days later" isn't the name of a zombie movie, it's how long they lasted before getting divorced.
Chris Kattan and Sunshine Tutt: This former SNL funnyman and the great great great great great great great great great granddaughter of the Egyptian King broke up after 42 days. Sadly they're both as disposable as their wedding. Zing!
Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon: If quickie marriages were a band, the union of these two would be a super group. The pair were married in Vegas and split after just 60 days. That's shorter than her marriage to Kid Rock and his to Shannen Doherty.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries: Kim and Kris only lasted 72 days, but Kim made a fortune during that time, collecting $17.9 million selling TV and photo rights, which works out to $10,358.80 per hour. Did she do it all for the money? You decide.
R. Kelly and Aaliyah: The beleaguered producer and the sadly departed singer didn't make it to the 90-day mark before the marriage was annulled because Aaliya was only 15 at the time. She's Courtney Stodden's role model.
Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock: Poor Pam. This is her second appearance on this list as her marriage to the dearly forgotten Kid Rock lasted only 114 days. Sadly, that is shorter than his career lasted, but not by much. Why can't Pam find a good man?
Lisa Marie Presley and Nicolas Cage: These two didn't make it to 120 days and the scary thing is that she stayed married to Michael Jackson for longer than she did to Cage. You gotta work really hard to out-crazy MJ.
Charlie Sheen and Donna Peele: This was serial monogamist Charlie Sheen's shortest stint, which made it to about the four month mark. He might have infamously said he pays hookers to leave, and he probably paid this nice lady a healthy sum too.
Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney: The gourd-headed actress and this country star that's followed by a million whispers got an annulment after only four months. The reason listed on the legal papers was "fraud." We never got a clear explanation of what that means. We can't wait for the tell-all, Kenny.
