7 Celebrities Who Married The Same Person Twice

Marriage must mean something entirely different in Hollywood than it does in our part of the world. Celebrities meet, marry and divorce in the blink of an eye and it’s not totally uncommon for some to get back together with – and even marry – someone they divorced. The whole idea is totally unconventional. You’d think that by deciding to divorce someone you’d be 100 percent sure you didn’t want to be with this person – but these sorts of things don’t factor in for the rich and famous. For this reason, we decided to see which celebrities married the same person twice. Some of these couples are still together, but many ended up divorcing the person again – which isn’t exactly too surprising! Take a look:

7. Pamela Anderson 

For reasons totally unknown, Pamela Anderson married Rick Salomon, a man who is best known for co-starring in Paris Hilton’s sex tape, twice. This unlikely couple married for the first time back in 2007, only to have the marriage annulled a few months later. Much to everyone’s horror and dismay, these two married again in early 2014. Once again, after less than a year of marriage, Anderson just announced that she and her newlywed husband would be divorcing again.

6. Larry King and Alene Akins

Larry King has been married a total of eight times to seven different women. He married his third wife Alene Atkins, a Playboy Bunny, in 1961 and divorced her in 1963. That same year, he married Mary Francis “Mickey” Stuphin and the two divorced in 1967. Not one to stay single long, King remarried Atkins the same year Stuphin divorced him and they managed to make it work until 1972 when they divorced for a second time.

5. Natalie Wood 

Natalie Wood married Robert Wagner twice. The Oscar-nominated actress – who reportedly had a crush on Wagner since she was a child – went on a studio-arranged date with him on her 18th birthday and they married a year later in 1957. Sadly, the marriage didn’t work out the first time – four years later, they separated and then divorced. In 1972, the two got back together and remarried a second time and remained married until her mysterious death in 1981.

4. Elizabeth Taylor 

Elizabeth Taylor was married eight times to seven husbands. She married actor Richard Burton twice. The Oscar-winning actress began her relationship with the critically acclaimed actor while she was married to Eddie Fisher. After Fisher finally agreed to a divorce in 1964, Taylor quickly married Burton. The turbulent relationship lasted for a decade and the two divorced in 1974. A year later, they rekindled their romance and married again, but this union was far shorter than the first. They divorced less than a year later.

3. Eminem 

Eminem married his high school sweetheart Kim Scott twice. They began dating in 1989, had a daughter in 1995 and married in 1999. They divorced in 2001 and Eminem proceeded to drag his ex wife’s name through the mud. For the next five years, they publically battled for custody of their daughter and Scott even sued her ex husband for defamation after he depicted her death in one of his songs. After all of the dysfunction, the two remarried in 2006; however, four months later, they filed for divorce, again.

In 1995, while Griffith was still with Johnson, she fell in love with Antonio Banderas on the set of the movie “Two Much.” In 1996, these two divorced again for the last time.
