We like to think whenever a couple ties the knot that they’ll live happily ever after and enjoy each other’s company for the rest of their lives.
Sadly, that’s not always the case.
While marriage is a great idea for some people, for others it is a costly mistake.
There are some marriages that last 10 or plus years before they split up and get a divorce, but there are some couples who split up only a few days, weeks, or months after getting married.
Here are some of the quickest celebrity divorces out there!
1. Britney Spears and Jason Alexander
In 2004, the 35-year-old tied the knot with her friend and future ex-husband, Jason Allen Alexander, in Las Vegas.
But, the marriage was quickly annulled just 55 hours later!
2. Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman
The 45-year-old model and the retired basketball player had an infamous marriage that lasted only 9 days after getting married in Las Vegas in 1998!
What is it with celebrities marrying in Vegas and then quickly splitting?!
3. Dennis Hopper and Michelle Phillips
The American actor and Knots Landing actress’s marriage only lasted two weeks before the pair decided to get a divorce in 1970.
4. Mario López and Ali Landry

6. Axl Rose and Erin Everly
The famous rocker married Erin Everly (his inspiration for Sweat child of mine) in Las Vegas in 1990. However, it wasn’t all that romantic, and just like other celebrity Vegas marriages, it didn’t last long. Axl Rose actually forced her to marry him, and the marriage only lasted a month.
7. Ernest Borgnine and Ethel Merman
