From the crystal chandeliers to gold dusted roses to fine china, celebrity weddings look like something out of a fairytale dream. But while us normal people are busy “pinning” our favorite love stories on Pinterest, happily ever after is becoming a lot shorter than we remembered, even for Hollywood stars. Whether it was a change of mind or a change of heart, here are 12 celebrity couples whose marriages lasted less than a year:
1. Renée Zellweger and Kenny Chesney
Length of marriage: 225 days
She’s Bridget Jones. He’s a country music star. If Renée Zellweger and Kenny Chesney seemed like an unlikely pairing, that’s because they were. The couple met at a tsunami-relief event and after four months of dating, they (much to everyone’s surprise) tied the knot in May 2005, on the Caribbean island of St. John. But their marriage ended up being as short as their courtship. Four months later, the couple announced their were splitting with Zellweger citing “fraud” as the reason for the split. Whatever that means.
