After just 72 days as man and wife, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries enter the storied ranks of famously fleeting couples.
Here are some of the most memorable and speediest celebrity marriages.
Britney Spears and Jason Alexander: 55 Hours
Back in 2004, the pop star tied the knot with her childhood friend Alexander after parting in Las Vegas. Despite the fact that the marriage immediately made headlines all over the world, it lasted a mere 55 hours before it was promptly annulled.
Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman: 9 Days
In 1998, the flamboyant basketball player wed the “Baywatch” sexpot at 7 a.m. in Sin City. Afterwards, Rodman’s publicist had a lot of question, and even put forth that he may have been “deeply intoxicated” at the time. The pair filed for annulment nine days later.
Cher and Gregg Allman: 9 Days
Back in July 1975, Cher and rocker Allman hightailed it to Vegas and tied the knot (just days after her divorce from Sonny Bono was finalized, mind you). Cher filed for another divorce nine days later after reportedly discovering that Allmans’ booze-and-drug issues were too much for her.
Ali Landry and Mario Lopez: 18 Days
In 2004, Mario Lopez married girlfriend of six years Ali Landry, but the marriage was annulled after 18 days because Landry found out Lopez had been unfaithful.
Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine: 32 Days
In 1964, stage and screen legend Merman and actor Borgnine tied the knot, but filed for divorce 32 days later. The pair was old hats at divorce: Merman had been married and divorced four times, and Borgnine five times.
