The Messiest Part Of Kris Humphries And Kim Kardashian's Divorce

When it comes to the shortest celebrity marriages, some stars are repeat offenders. Drew Barrymore has been involved in two very short-lived unions, including a 163-day marriage to comedian Tom Green, and a 39-day marriage to Los Angeles bar owner Jeremy Thomas, per Insider. Actor Nicolas Cage is another star who has had some bad luck in his marriages. Cage was previously married to the daughter of iconic singer Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, for 107 days before calling it quits. He also ended his marriage to fourth wife Erika Koike only four short days after their wedding ceremony.

Pamela Anderson has also had some turbulent marriages. Although her most famous marriage was to drummer Tommy Lee, she was also married to singer Kid Rock for 122 days. She also wed Rick Salomon only to call off the marriage only 60 days later. Other stars who have been known for some stunningly short marriages include Eddie Murphy, Mario Lopez, Colin Farrell, Bradley Cooper, Carmen Electra, and Chad Michael Murray (via Brides).

Of course, you can't talk about short celebrity unions without mentioning the quickie marriage of Kim Kardashian and her second husband, former NBA player Kris Humphries.

Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage

Kim Kardashian began dating Kris Humphries in 2010 after meeting through a mutual friend. The couple then dated for a short time before the basketball player proposed to the reality star in May 2011 (via Us Weekly). The couple planned an extravagant wedding, which was televised, and then headed to New York, where Kardashian was filming a spinoff series with her sister. During the filming of the show, things changed drastically between the pair and Kardashian made the tough decision to file for divorce from Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. For his part, Humphries filed for an annulment and claimed that Kardashian only married him for TV ratings.

As fans watched "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," it was obvious her ideals didn't line up with Humphries' plan for their future. The NBA player told his then-wife that he wanted to move back to his hometown in Minnesota when his basketball career was over, and even told the reality star that, by the time they had children, people probably wouldn't care about her anymore (via MTV).

Once Kim filed for divorce, it seemed the marriage would be over quickly. However, the divorce proceedings took longer than anyone expected, and during that time, Kardashian moved on to a new romance with rapper Kanye "Ye" West.

Kim Kardashian became pregnant with another man's child while still married to Kris Humphries

Although Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries in October 2011, the pair was still navigating their divorce during the early stages of Kardashian's relationship with Kanye "Ye" West. In early 2013, it was revealed that Kardashian was pregnant with Ye's child, but there was some major drama surrounding the pregnancy, as the reality star was still legally married to Humphries, per TV Guide. Because Kardashian and Humphries were legally married at the time of her pregnancy, the NBA player was presumed to be the father under California law (via TMZ).

The messy situation meant that Humphries could have contested the paternity of the baby and forced Kardashian to present clear evidence, such as a DNA test, to prove that Ye was the biological father of her child. While speculation about the divorce, Kardashian's relationship with Ye, and the couple's pregnancy ran wild online, Kardashian and Humphries were finally able to settle their divorce. The couple officially ended their marriage in April 2013, just days before Kardashian gave birth to her first child, North West (via CNN).

Kardashian and Ye later tied the knot and welcomed three more children together: Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. However, in February 2021, Kardashian filed for divorce from Ye after months of rumors about their split, per TMZ. Years later, Humphries told the Players' Tribune that his marriage to Kardashian was "100% real."
