Whether it’s the pressures of being a public image or personal indifferences, we’ve rounded up 30 celebrity couples whose marriages didn’t stand the test of time. In fact, some of these pairings split up not long after the ink dried on their marriage certificates!

Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman – 9 Days

NBA superstar Dennis Rodman and actress Carmen Electra eloped in Las Vegas on Nov. 14, 1998. As shocking as their rash decision was, an annulment was filed only nine days after their wedding. Strangely, they continued appearing together publicly following the news of annulment. By March 1999, though, Electra had finally filed for a divorce.

Ali Landry and Mario Lopez – 18 Days

Young, successful, and attractive – a match made in heaven, or so it seems. Celebrity couple Ali Landry and Mario Lopez married in April 2004, but didn’t last that long. Landry heard rumors of Saved By The Bell star’s cheating ways and filed for an annulment a little more than two weeks after they tied the knot. Proven right years later, Lopez admitted to cheating during his bachelor party in Mexico.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard – 15 Months

The couple met in 2011 on the set of the movie The Rum Diary, and real-life romance apparently transpired. In February 2015, the pair officially got married. However, the relationship turned into a serious drama when Heard filed a restraining order on May 27, 2016 against her husband, alleging physical and verbal abuse, although some sources allege that it was instead Heard who abused Depp. Their divorce was finalized in January 2017.

Fred Armisen and Elisabeth Moss – 8 Months

Armisen and Moss met on the set of Saturday Night Live in 2009. The then-SNL actor and Mad Men actress wed on October 25, 2009. However, the couple called it quits by May 2010. Armisen took the blame and later confessed on Howard Stern’s radio show that he wasn’t ready to be “tied down to one person.”

Cher and Gregg Allman – 9 Days

Singer Cher married musician Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers Band just three days after her divorce from Sonny Bono was finalized.

Drew Barrymore and Tom Green – 163 Days

This striking couple actually pretended to be married longer than their marriage actually lasted!

However, five months after their wedding, Green filed divorce citing “irreconcilable differences” between him and Barrymore.

Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley – 108 Days

Lisa Marie Presley (daughter of Elvis Presley) wed actor Nicolas Cage on August 10, 2002, in Hawaii. This became Presley’s third marriage, with Cage proposing just 10 days earlier.

In an interview with People, Presley said “I’m sad about this, but we shouldn’t have been married in the first place.”

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries – 72 Days

The reality star and entrepreneur apparently had reservations about marrying NBA player Kris Humphries back in August 20, 2011. However, she eventually pushed through the wedding fearing that turning back would have people say that she “just did it for the show [Keeping Up with the Kardashians].” She couldn’t hold out for long though and finally filed for divorce on October 31, 2011. She is now happily married to rapper Kanye West and has three children with him.

Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson – 122 Days

Like any ideal marriages, Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson seemed to be living their fairy tale on July 9, 2006, when the couple officially got married.

Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger – 225 Days

Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger married on May 9, 2005 after meeting that January of the same year at a charity concert. The country music singer and Hollywood darling tied the knot on a St. John Island beach. In September, however, Zellweger filed for divorce, citing fraud as the cause.

Film co-stars Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly met during auditions for Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and got married on September 23, 1996, a year after Carrey’s divorce from his first wife. Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t even last a full year, with Holly filing for divorce in July 1997.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand – 14 Months

Singer Katy Perry and British comedian Russell Brand married in India in October 2010. Sadly, their conflicting schedules made keeping the relationship up difficult, which fans get to witness on the big screen during Perry’s documentary, Part of Me. Perry claims Brand texted her in December 2011 to tell her he was filing for a divorce. The marriage was so brief that when the singer appeared on Ellen DeGeneres show, the famed host forgot Perry had been married at all!

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds – 2 Weeks

This celebrity couple had their intimate wedding ceremony on January 1, 2008, in Bora Bora Island. Rumors had it that during the honeymoon, the couple allegedly spent more time arguing than cuddling.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito – 4 Months

Actors Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito kept their relationship in low profile and married quietly on December 30, 2006. However, sparks seemed to have worn off immediately as the couple decided to break off their union four months later.

In Esposito’s 2014 memoir, Jennifer’s Way, she wrote, “He was funny, smart, cocky, arrogant, and a master manipulator. I didn’t necessarily find him that attractive, but I figured that I could enjoy his sense of humor and nonsense for a while.” She hasn’t confirmed whether that passage was about Cooper but many have speculated it is.

Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria – 11 Months

Colin Farrell and Amelia Warner – 4 Months
