It's meant to be 'til death do us part but some stars just can’t resist saying "I do" even if it’s only for a few days.

Pamela Anderson, 52, has split from new hubby Jon Peters, 74, after just 12 days. But their short marriage seems like a lifetime compared to some other Hollywood nuptials.

Nicolas Cage's marriage to Erika Koike lasted just four days, while Britney Spears' Las Vegas wedding to Jason Alexander resulted in a mere 55-hour union, but who could forget Zsa Zsa Gabor's marriage to Felipe de Alba, which lasted just one day?

Here’s some other brief encounters...

Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike four days and Lisa Marie Presley 107 days

Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike lasted four days

Actor Nicolas Cage has been married four times, but it was his latest to Erika Koike, in 2019, which lasted four days.

The couple tied the knot in a surprise wedding in Las Vegas but quickly decided to call it quits and file for an annulment. A few days after his divorce, Nicolas opened up about his heartbreak, he said: "I was pretty upset about that and the way things happened."

However, he's another who is no stranger to a quick divorce.

For, after sparking up a romance with Lisa Marie Presley at punk rocker Johnny Ramone’s birthday bash in 2000 the couple married two years later in Hawaii.

He lasted 107 days with Lisa Marie Presley

It was her third marriage – including a 20 month union with Michael Jackson in 1994 – and his second.

But by November 2002 the honeymoon was well and truly over when Cage divorced the singer, citing "irreconcilable differences".

Presley said they "shouldn't have been married in the first place." Ouch.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries 72 days

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were married for 72 days

Reality superstar Kim Kardashian was accused of staging a publicity stunt after she announced her August 2011 marriage with basketball player Kris Humphries was over after only 72 days.

Their lavish wedding had been televised and it is thought that Kim made nearly £14million from the day.

Kris said: "The one thing that really bothers me is whenever people say my marriage was fake.

"There’s definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real."

Elizabeth Taylor and Nicky Hilton 8 months

Elizabeth Taylor and Nicky Hilton managed to make it last eight months

America's sweetheart Elizabeth Taylor was as famous for her love life as for her acting career and had a staggering eight marriages to seven different men (she married Richard Burton twice).

However, her first marriage to hotelier Conrad "Nicky" Hilton – Paris Hilton's grandfather – lasted only eight months.

The trouble started on their honeymoon, a 14-week tour of Europe, during which she described Conrad as "sullen, angry and abusive, physically and mentally".

A few years earlier Conrad had had an affair with his stepmother Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander 55 hours

Britney Spears was married to Jason Alexander for 55 hours

The definition of a whirlwind romance, Britney's marriage to childhood friend, Jason Alexander lasted just 55 hours in 2004 before their union was annulled.

The pair tied the knot in Vegas after Brtiney invited him out there and the pop star even flew him over in a private jet.

Jason maintains that the decision to end the marriage was not his.

He said: "I was in love with her...I feel like she felt the same way."

Sinead O’Connor and Barry Herridge 16 days

Sinead O’Connor and Barry Herridge made it work for 16 days

The Irish singer-songwriter has been married four times but her 16-day marriage to therapist Barry Herridge in 2011 was the quickest.

They wed in Las Vegas on her 45th birthday, but just over two weeks later the star said it was "a mistake".

She told fans: "He has been terribly unhappy and I have ended the marriage. He is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap."

Rumours the pair had secretly reunited were quashed by Sinead who said last year: "I'm not in a relationship."

Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker 6 hours

Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker had the shortest Hollywood marriage ever

As soon as actress Jean tied the knot with silent film actor Rudolph in 1919 she began to regret the decision and locked her new husband out of their hotel room.

It's believed their union was used to cover up their real sexuality – and was so short it was even cited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the shortest Hollywood marriage on record.

Soon after they divorced, Valentino wed again and was arrested for bigamy as Californian law required he be divorced a full year before tying the knot again.

Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine 32 days

Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine split after 32 days following a disastrous honeymoon

Hollywood stars Ethel and Ernest were no strangers to divorce, with Ethel marrying four times and Ernest five.

So it’s perhaps no surprise that they kept their 1964 marriage short and sweet.

They wed when she was 55 and he was 47, and parted ways after just over a month.

The split was caused by a disastrous honeymoon.

Ernest said: "Everybody knew me, but they didn't know Ethel overseas.

"The more they recognised me, the madder she got.

"That's what hurt her, she started taking it out on me."

Zsa Zsa Gabor and Felipe De Alba one day

Zsa Zsa Gabor and Felipe De Alba lasted just a day

Walking down the aisle in 1983, actress Zsa Zsa’s marriage was over particularly quickly, as she discovered she was still married to her previous husband, Michael O’Hara.

So one day later it was officially annulled.

In total, Zsa Zsa, who died in December 2016 aged 99, is said to have had nine husbands

Although she claimed her final marriage to Prince Frederic von Anhalt was her eighth – as she refused to count the one to Mexican actor Felipe.

Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters 12 days, Rick Salomon 170 days and Kid Rock 182 days

Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters have called time on their marriage after 12 days
She made it work with Rick Salomon for 170 days

Her latest marriage ending after 12 days when the apparently not so happy couple decided to "take some time apart" shouldn't come as a surprise... she's got form.

Her union to poker player Rick Salomon lasted 170 days in 2007 before she filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences".

They later tied the knot again in 2014 for a further 15 months before divorcing in 2015.
