Celebrity marriages are quite talked about in the media. Unfortunately, there are quite a few Hollywood couples that have called it quits in the past, and that caused just as much buzz in the media as them tying the knot. I don’t really need to talk about how sad the world was when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie called it quits.
But at least that relationship lasted quite a long time. And from what we can see, they’re starting to mend fences again. However, there are plenty of instances where celebrity marriages were very, very short.
With that being said, here are 21 celebrity marriages that lasted for a very short amount of time.
