Celebrities Who Married and Split Up in the Same Month

That was fast.

Marriage is supposed to be forever. However, sometimes you accidentally say “I do!” to a rando in Las Vegas and have to get that s–t annulled quickly. In that case, marriage isn’t forever. Just ask Britney Spears and Carmen Electra. They know all about it.

And so do these other celebrities. Each of them walked down the aisle a little too hastily and ended up splitting from their spouses in the same damn month. From Mario Lopez to Eddie Murphy, let’s take a look at celebrity marriages that began and ended before you even paid your rent.

  • 1 Britney Spears and Jason Alexander

    Spears’ 55-hour Vegas marriage to childhood friend Alexander is legendary. The year was 2004–January, to be exact–and Spears was paaartying in Sin City with Alexander. In the wee hours of the morning, they decided to get hitched, so they jumped in a green limousine and drove to The Little White Wedding Chapel. Spears wore a baseball cap and ripped jeans during the “ceremony.” Two days later, the marriage was annulled.

  • 2 Mario Lopez and Ali Landry

    Lopez and Landry married in April 2004, but they divorced a whopping two weeks later. Lopez’s cheating was reportedly a major reason for the uncoupling. He admitted to Howard Stern in 2011 that one indiscretion happened at his bachelor party. “It was spring break. . . . Everybody was hanging out. That was a situation where I was not mature and man enough,” he said.

  • 3 Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds

    Murphy and Edmonds had a symbolic marriage ceremony in Bora Bora New Year’s Eve 2008 and had plans to make it official when they hit the States again. Alas, no such wedding happened…because they split up 14 days later.

  • 4 Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman

    Rodman and Electra had a shotgun marriage in November 1998 at Vegas’ Little White Wedding Chapel. Nine days later, Rodman filed an annulment, saying he was of “unsound mind” when he exchanged vows. The couple’s divorce was finalized five months later. “It’s easy to get caught up in a moment,” Electra said about the marriage. “You think it’s romantic, but then you realize, God, we did it in Vegas?”

  • 5 Zsa Zsa Gabor and Felipe DeAlba

    The iconic actress married DeAlba in April 1983, but the union was annulled one day later. Apparently, Gabor’s previous marriage to Michael O’Hara wasn’t fully dissolved. What an eager beaver!

  • 6 Axl Rose and Erin Everly

    Rose and Everly tied the knot in Vegas in April 1990. Twenty-six days later, they split up. The couple later reconciled but officially parted ways nine months later.

  • 7 Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas

    Barrymore married this bar owner at his place of work in March 1994. The divorce filing came a month later. This definitely wasn’t the inspiration for “Drunk in Love.”

  • 8 Cher and Greg Allman

    Cher married Allman less than a week after finalizing her divorce from Sonny Bono in 1975. However, nine days later, she filed for divorce. She had a change of heart, though, and stayed with Allman until 1979.
