7 Celebrities Who Married And Split In The Same Month
In Hollywood, marriage doesn’t mean the same thing as it does to the outside world. Celebrities are always getting married and divorced – and they sometimes do both within the same month. We have 7 celebrities who walked down the aisle rather hastily and ended up signing divorce papers before the ink had dried on their marriage certificates.
7. Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas – 19 Days
In 1994, Drew Barrymore married her first husband, Welsh bar owner Jeremy Thomas after six weeks of dating, and then split after only 19 days of marriage. The fact that the marriage ended wasn’t a huge surprise considering that they married on a whim at 5 a.m. in Jeremy’s bar. A minister-psychic-private detective who they found via a 24-hour wedding hotline presided over the ceremony inside, making the whole situation sound even sketchier.
6. Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds – 14 Days
Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds married on a private island off Bora Bora in 2008; however, two weeks after tying the knot, they split. This didn’t come as a shock to those who had attended the wedding, as the newlyweds began fighting almost immediately after they exchanged vows and so did their families. One source of conflict for Eddie and Tracey was her refusal to change her name. Lucky for them, the ceremony wasn’t legally binding, so they were able to quickly break up and go their separate ways.
