1. Jennifer Lopez & Ojani Noa - 300 days

Lopez (46) married former model and restaurant owner Noa in February of 1997, and divorced him less than a year later.

In November 2009 Noa sought to use photos and footage he collected during his time with his ex-wife to produce a film about their life together.

But Lopez filed a law suit to stop him, and a court eventually granted her a restraining order.

6. Pamela Anderson & Rick Salomon - 61 days

When Pammy filed for divorce Rick retaliated by asking a judge in Las Vegas to grant him an annulment of the union and prevented his estranged wife from getting her hands of any of his fortune.

 

7. Carmen Electra & Denis Rodman - 9 days

Basketball star Dennis Rodman filed annulment papers seeking to end his nine days of wedded life.

In court documents, Rodman cited fraud and an unsound mind as the reasons behind the application.

Rodman's attorney told the media that the ex-Chicago Bulls player was drunk during the Las Vegas wedding ceremony.

 

8. Britney Spears &Jason Alexander - 55 hours

The troubled pop star decamped to Las Vegas with her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander, and like many others, decided to get hitched.

Perhaps realising her poor judgment, Spears had the marriage annulled a mere 55 hours later, but the whirlwind romance remains one of the shortest celebrity marriages in history.
