Short-lived celeb marriages

The Alias star (38) married actor Scott Foley in 2000 when she was 28 only to divorce four years later citing "irreconcilable differences".
The actress now has a successful marriage and two daughters with Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck who she wed in 2005.
Always ahead of his time, the child star (now 30) was 17 when he married in 1998, only to divorce two years later.
Since 2002 he's been dating actress Mila Kunis.
Back in the 90s the X Factor judge (39) was just 23 when she married Nip/Tuck star Julian McMahon.
The singer says McMahon's mum never accepted her and the couple split a year later. Minogue, who this year had a baby with her partner Kris Smith, says the experience "shaped" her.
Fellow X Factor star Cheryl's (27) marriage started in a fanfare of cheesy photos of her and hubby Ashley Cole dressed in white promoting the lottery in 2006, but ended this year in tales of cheating and distasteful text messages.
Geldof married musician Max Drumney in 2008 only to split six months later.
She said: "I'm realistic -- you can't ignore divorce rates. Every friend of mine has parents who are divorced. I didn't go into it with Max thinking: 'This is going to last forever'."
