A curious phenomenon is threatening the balance of the showbiz world. Celebs wed in lavishing ceremonies that drive the paparazzi mad, only to divorce shortly after.
Marriages that last only a couple of days serve only one purpose. They let ink loose and invite people to speculate on the differences that pushed the former lovebirds apart. Make your way towards the end of the list where a genuine surprise awaits.
1. Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd – 7 months
Jennifer Lopez made headlines when she chose backup dancer Cris Judd as her husband following an engagement that lasted only one month.
The two met while filming the music video for “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” back in 2001. Prehistory of music, right? Jenny was not merciful with the gas pedal, as she got married in late September and divorced just seven months later.
Are you curious about what went wrong with this couple? Let’s just say that love between gods and mortals never led to something peaceful and durable. Judd was a commoner, and he struggled in vain to keep up with the Latino diva.
“You know it’s very tough. Your privacy is breached. You’re no longer a normal person,” Judd described his high-profile marriage. “Our wedding was a circus. I think several people got arrested trying to sneak in. We actually rented the airspace,” he added.
It was Jenny second divorce, a piece of cake compared to the Mark Anthony fiasco of 2014.
Meet the next couple that acted on impulse and later regretted.
2. Charlie Sheen and Donna Peele – 5 months
Charlie Sheen couldn’t miss our list of short-lived weddings.
Charlie met 20-year-old model Donna Peele while filming a cigarette commercial in New York. The tiger-blooded Adonis needed only six weeks to make up his mind, and the pair exchanged vows on September 3, 1995.
“She’s an angel sent from heaven to take me through the rest of my journey.” That is how Sheen jubilated in the media while describing his perfect partner.
Five months together proved enough and the actor from “Wall Street” completely changed his metaphors. “You buy a car, it breaks down, what are you gonna do?”
As it always happens, the divorce made it on the front pages and stayed there for weeks. Once the gold rush for gossip on what went wrong was over, Donna Peele also vanished from the spotlights.
As for Charlie Sheen, although he added two more failed marriages to his resume, we have to give him credit for trying at least. Denise Richards (2002 – 2006) and Brooke Mueller (2008 – 2011) confirmed that Good Time Charlie had a hard time settling between the same sheets.
