13 Stars Who Married – And Divorced – Young!
Some stars seem to get married when they’re ridiculously young and, not surprisingly, many of these marriages end in divorce! Divorce rates are already really high in Hollywood, so what were these celebrities thinking? We have a list of 13 stars who married well before they were ready – and who inevitably divorced!
13. Demi Moore
At 18, Demi Moore married rock musician Freddy Moore, only to divorce him four years later. The marriage is said to have ended amicably. Moore then began dating Emilio Estevez, her co-star from “St. Elmo’s Fire.” During this time period, Moore was also treated for her drug and alcohol problems.
12. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson married Nick Lachey when she was 22 years old and divorced him three years later. Simpson had announced before the couple was engaged that she was waiting until marriage to lose her virginity. Perhaps this was the reason they married so young!
11. Melanie Griffith
At the age of 14, Melanie Griffith began dating 22-year-old Don Johnson. In 1976, once Griffith was 18, the couple married, only to separate and divorce six months later. In 1989, the couple re-married only to separate for good in 1995. Sounds like there is an interesting story behind this one…
10. Milla Jovovich
Milla Jovovich married her co-star Shawn Andrews from “Dazed and Confused” when she was only 16. Andrews was 21 at the time. Jovovich’s mother had the marriage annulled two months later. Did you see these two in “Dazed and Confused?” They looked perfect together!
9. Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne married Deryck Whibley when she was 21 years old. After three years of marriage, Lavigne filed for divorce. Sources said that Lavigne married when she was too young and needed time to figure her life out away from Whibley. Sounds like that’s what she did! Lavigne is now married to Chad Kroeger from Nickleback. She seems to have a thing for men in bands…
8. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson married rock musician Chris Robinson when she was fairly young – only 21! The couple did their best to make it work, but separated after six years of marriage. Apparently, they met at a party in New York City in 2000 and moved in together just days later.
7. Uma Thurman
When she was only 19 years old, Uma Thurman married 31-year-old Gary Oldman. Oldman was married at the time the two met and Thurman was dating director Phil Joanou, but the chemistry between them was undeniable. It turns out that is was also short lived! The couple divorced less than two years later.
6. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde married Tao Ruspoli at the age of 19 and filed for divorce after eight years of marriage. Wilde is a classic case of someone who married too young! “I really had a sense that I had stunted my growth. I think that’s one of the things that made me feel so uncomfortable in my marriage. It was really no fault of my husband. It was me realizing that I had sort of arrested development,” Wilde has said. Well, at least she was able to get out and live a little before settling down again with Jason Sudeikis!
5. LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes married Dean Sheremet, who was one of her backup dancers, when she was 19. After seven years of marriage, Rimes was caught having an affair with her co-star from “Northern Lights” Eddie Cibrian. She divorced Sheremet in 2010. According to Rimes, the marriage ended because they were too young when they married and they ended up growing apart.
4. Macaulay Culkin
Macaulay Culkin married actress Rachel Miner in 1998 when they were both 17. Two years later, they separated. The marriage is said to have ended because Culkin wanted to return to work while Miner wanted to start a family. Either way, we think these two were a little young to marry, let alone start a family!
3. Kim Kardashian
Unbeknownst to most, Kim Kardashian was married when she was only 20 years old to music producer Damon Thomas who was 10 years her senior. The marriage only lasted three years with Kim eventually leaving because of abuse.
2. Nicky Hilton
Nicky Hilton married her childhood friend Todd Andrew Meister, a 33-year-old businessmen, in Las Vegas back in 2004 when she was only 20 years old. Unfortunately the relationship did not last! Less than three months later it was annulled. The couple claims that they married on a whim, which isn’t shocking given the circumstances!
1. Drew Barrymore
When Drew Barrymore was just 19 years old, she married bar owner Jeremy Thomas who was 31 years old at the time. The couple wasn’t married long though! Barrymore filed for divorce two months later. Around this time, Barrymore had a reputation for being a wild child and her impromptu wedding was just another example!
