  1. Interesting, I didn’t know most of these, but it’s not surprising all of them ended in divorce…

  2. How about Britney, she married a few who she barely knew and then one was divorced after 42 days lol. I was surprised to hear how long Nick Cannon and Mariah Cannon had lasted considering how long they had been together prior to it x

  3. I remember when Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovett. I really like them both .. but at the time thought .. huh? I also didn’t realize Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee made it as long as they did and had children together x

  4. I didn’t know pam Anderson and Tommy tommy lee only knew each other a few days… wow… I guess love waits for no man lmao. And apparently neither does divorce.

  5. I am not surprised that they are all divorced now. That is what I expected when I even saw the title 🙂

  6. I only knew about Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett! That’s disappointing that they all separated!
