From the outside, it seems like Hollywood marriages hardly ever last long, but some famous celebrities rushed both the alter and to divorce court. Young divorcees abound in Tinsel Town, from Angelina Jolie, who was just 24 years old at the time of her first divorce, to divorced-remarried-divorced-again-remarried-again Kim Kardashian. One famous pop singer had one marriage annulled and another end in divorce all before she turned 30. Celeb divorces can be fascinating, shocking news stories, but a few young stars on this list were already divorced before you ever heard their names.

Who is the most famous celebrity who divorced young? Angelina Jolie tops our list. The Tomb Raider actress divorced Jonny Lee Miller in 1999 when she was 24 years old and divorced her second husband, Billy Bob Thornton, in 2003 at age 28. Jolie was in a relationship with Brad Pitt from 2005, and the couple married in 2014, but they separated in 2016 despite their six children together.

Britney Spears had her marriage to Jason Allen Alexander annulled after being married less than three days in 2004. She was only 22 years old at the time. She divorced Kevin Federline in 2007 when she was 25.

Are you surprised that so many famous people divorced at a young age? Some of these stars were less than half the age of other celebrities, who were over 50 when they divorced.
