Shortest celeb marriages from Britney Spears’ Vegas wedding to Kim Kardashian’s 72-day husband

February brings with it the season of love. Red roses, red-heart shaped flowers, extravagant getaways and romantic dinner dates are all on the table.

With such positivity and connection in the air, we almost wish we could celebrate the holiday of Valentine's Day all year round.

However, that is very rarely the case when it comes to Hollywood, as celebrities are likely to break-up just as quickly as they fell in love.

Here OK! looks back at some of the shortest and most iconic celebrity marriages as stars fell hard and fast for each other, but the flame quickly fizzled.

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander – 55 hours

Britney Spears shocked fans when she and her childhood friend said "I do" in Las Vegas's infamous 'A Little White Wedding Chapel' in the early hours of January 3, 3004.

As soon as the nuptials came to light, her team quickly annulled them.

They claimed the pop princess "lacked understanding of her actions to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage."

The following year, Britney married dancer Kevin Federline. That marriage lasted two years.

Britney is now engaged to fiancé Sam Asghari.

Katie Price and Alex Reid – 11 months

Katie Price tied the knot with MMA fighter Alex Reid in 2010, just nine months after divorcing Peter Andre.

However, the former glamour model confessed that she had married Alex "too soon," and the pair split just one month shy of their first wedding anniversary.

Their divorce was finalised in 2012.

Alesha Dixon and MC Harvey – 17 months

There was trouble in paradise for Alesha Dixon after she found out her husband MC Harvey had cheated on her with singer Javine Hylton in 2005.

Addressing the infidelity on Piers Morgan's Life Stories in 2014, the former Mis-Teeq star said: "I didn't eat for a few days. I just remember sitting on the floor in my house. You ask those questions: 'Why? What have I done wrong?"

Alesha found her happily ever after with her husband Azuka Ononye. They share daughters Azura, 8, and two year old Anaya.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries – 72 days

Probably one of the most infamous short-lived marriages was that of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.

The pair's whirlwind marriage was documented on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and they even broadcast their lavish nuptials on the special, Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event.

Just over two months later, Kim filed for divorce from the NBA athlete, citing irreconcilable differences.

Kim has frequently denied the marriage was for publicity, and Kris said in 2019: "There's definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real. But our actual relationship was 100 per cent real."

Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon – 2 months

Pamela Anderson and Rock Salomon were also another couple to have a famously short marriage, lasting two months.

Pamela and the poker player wed in October 2007 at The Mirage in Las Vegas, before splitting in December the same year. Their union was annulled in early 2008, with both citing fraud.

They gave their relationship another shot by marrying in January 2014 but split yet again six months later in July. Their divorce was finalised in April 2015.

Jennifer Lopez and Chris Judd – 218 days

JLo tied the knot with her former backup dancer Chris Judd in September 2001 after a month-long engagement.

They amicably split less than a year later.

Jennifer has now rekindled her romance with another former flame, Ben Affleck.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand – 14 months

American pop princess Katy Perry and British comedian Russell Brand were married for just over a year before their split came to light at the end of 2011.

Irreconcilable differences were cited as the reason behind their split.

It was soon revealed that Russell had announced that he would be divorcing her via text just as she was about to go on stage for her concert tour.

Chantelle Houghton and Preston – 10 months

Chantelle Houghton and Preston met on Celebrity Big Brother and married in 2006.

However, their newlywed bliss did not last, and they broke up less than a year later.

In a statement, they wrote: "We know people will think we married too quickly on the back of Big Brother but the truth is that, what anyone thinks, we did have a whirlwind romance but we were genuinely in love with each other at the time and we will never regret our time together."
