REALITY TV STAR Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries may have had a US$10 million fairytale wedding – but there just wasn’t enough love to go around to keep the two together.

In what apparently came as a surprise to her new husband, Kim filed for divorce after 72 days together.

She said:

I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned.

But Kardashian isn’t the only celebrity who has had a short-lived matrimonial union – Britney Spears, Lisa-Marie Presley, Renee Zellweger, Peaches Geldof and a number of other celebrities have found their marriage barely lasted kissing time.

In the slideshow below, we take a look at some of the shortest celeb marriages.
