The relationship between the late Lisa Marie Presley, a singer and Elvis’ daughter, and Oscar-winning actor, Nicolas Cage, was dramatic right from the start. While sailing in Nick’s Yacht in July 2002, Lisa threw her $65,000 engagement ring into the ocean. They put the incident behind them and got married less than a month later in Hawaii.
Lisa looked beautiful in a traditional white dress but after only 102 days of marriage, Nick filed for divorce. The actor and singer didn’t have much in common and apparently couldn’t even decide on a place to live. Cage has since been heard saying that they should have never married in the first place.
An Enormous Scandal
Rudolph Valentino was a famous silent movie star in Hollywood’s early days. Valentino and actress Jean Acker decided to get married after dating for only two months. Apparently, Acker quickly realized the impulsive marriage was a mistake. She even locked her new husband out of their hotel room on their wedding night and claimed that the marriage had never been consummated.
Valentino filed for divorce, but he didn’t even wait for it to be finalized before marrying costume designer Natacha Rambova. The second wedding led to an enormous scandal and Rudolph Valentino was even charged with bigamy. Jean Acker took the failed marriage in stride, and later had numerous relationships with female lovers.
A Bogus Relationship?
Beautiful reality star Kim Kardashian also had a relationship with an NBA player. Kim and Kris Humphries dated for less than a year before getting married in an extravagant televised wedding ceremony at a 20-million-dollar estate. Many people believed the wedding and the entire relationship were bogus and were just an excuse to get more publicity for Kim’s reality show, but both Kim and Kris claim that their love and marriage were the real deal.
After a short and unhappy time (72 days to be exact) that can be viewed in detail on Kim’s reality show “Keeping Up with The Kardashians”, the couple decided to divorce. The marriage and divorce were wrapped up just in time for Kim to get engaged and marry famous singer Kanye West, who she has since filed for divorce from.
From a Cult Comedy to a Tragic Divorce
Comedian Jim Carrey and “NCIS” actress Lauren Holly shared a whirlwind marriage. The duo starred in the cult classic comedy film “Dumb and Dumber” and had such a great time together that they decided to get hitched. Unfortunately, the marriage was not a great success.
The couple wed on September 23, 1996, in an intimate mountain top ceremony, but less than one year later, in July 1997, Holly filed for divorce.
Not Mad About You
This celebrity couple was together for five years before tying the knot, but their marriage was not as long as their courtship. Hollywood power couple Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria had a simple wedding with a traditional Jewish ceremony, at their California home on July 17, 1999.
Although the couple had been together for years, it turned out that married life was not for them. After only a year of marriage, Hank moved out of their shared home. Six months later, Helen filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalized on December 18, 2000, only a year and a half after the wedding.
