Hollywood's Shortest Marriages at a Glance
Hollywood is notoriously toxic when it comes to relationships and marriage. These celebrities have proved that the attention takes its toll and their marriages were extremely short.
Over the years, fans have watched more than one Hollywood couple fall apart. For some, it seems the walk down the aisle was the highlight of their time together.
While some had quickie marriages that were annulled just as quickly, others hosted lavish weddings only to get divorced shortly after. Here is a look at some of the shortest marriages in Hollywood history.
Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley
Nicholas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley's marriage lasted a measly one hundred and seven days. The pair had started dating in 2000.
They held a lavish ceremony in Hawaii in August 2002. Cage filed for divorce in November later the same year and insisted that they “shouldn’t have been married in the first place.”
Cage and Erica Koike
Nicolas Cage's last marriage was also extremely short. It ended in an annulment in late March, after Caged filed for divorce just four days after he married Erika Koike.
The pair had tied the knot in Las Vegas after dating for over a year. Just two months later a Nevada judge granted Cage’s request for a divorce on March 28, 2019.
Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were married for a meager seventy-two days. While they do not hold the record for the shortest marriage, theirs was a controversial and infamous union.

Cher and Gregg Allman
The union between Cher and Gregg Allman was one of the extremely short marriages and ended in just nine days. The pair ran away to Vegas and tied the knot in July 1975.

Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon were married for a total of sixty days. The “Baywatch” star married Salomon in Las Vegas in October 2007.
