List of the shortest hollywood marriages, ranked by their duration in hours, days, weeks, and months. Hollywood marriages are known to be notoriously short, but some couples barely made it through the ceremony. Some famous couples had quickie Las Vegas weddings that were easily annulled, and others were unofficially married on tropical beaches, making it especially easy to forget that the union ever took place.

Which couple has had the shortest Hollywood marriage? Britney Spears and Jason Alexander top our list. In 2004, Britney Spears married her childhood friend Jason Alexander in Las Vegas. The marriage was annulled 55 hours later. Spears went on to marry Kevin Federline in September of that same year. Her marriage to Federline ended in July of 2007. Other famous couples who had short marriages, which began in Las Vegas, include Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman, and Axl Rose and Erin Everly.

Kim Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries on August 20, 2011. The marriage lasted 72 days with Kardashian filing for divorce on October 31st of that same year. She is now engaged to rapper Kanye West and the couple have a daughter together.
