After only 72 days of marriage, reality TV star Kim Kardashianhas filed for divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries. Kim released an official statement yesterday, with Kris releasing his own shortly afterwards, claiming he will do whatever it takes to save his marriage.
Now, we take a look back at some of the shortest lived marriages in celebrity history...
It's fair to say Jennifer Lopez's doesn't have a good track record when it comes to relationships. Her first marriage to waiter Ojani Noa lasted 13 months and her second, to dancer Cris Judd, was over in just seven! J-Lo's third marriage to Marc Anthony looked set to last after the pair had their twins, but that too ended earlier this year, after seven years of marriage.
Renee Zellweger had long relationships with Jim Carrey and White Stripes frontman Jack White that hadn't ended in marriage, so when she met country singer Kenny Chesney in January 2005 and married him on a beach in the Caribbean five months later, everyone thought that it must be a match made in heaven. A few months later, Renee applied for an annulment citing 'fraud' as the reason. Their marriage lasted four months.
After Lisa Marie Presley's unlikely marriage to Michael Jackson, it seemed her love life couldn't get any stranger. However she married another unlikely man in 2002, actor Nicolas Cage, who was openly a huge fan of her father Elvis. Their marriage lasted around three months, with Nic filing for divorce just 108 days after they said their 'I dos'.
It seems that celebrity marriages are often doomed from the start, but none more so than the marriage of Britney Spears and Jason Alexander. Britney was still getting over her shock split from Justin Timberlake when she spent New Year's Eve of 2003 in Las Vegas with her old school friend. After a big night out the pair ended up getting married at the Little White Wedding Chapel. Britney's lawyers swooped in, and 55 hours later the marriage was over. Britney later admitted: "I was in Vegas and it took over me and, you know, things got out of hand."
