Celebrity Weddings We Didn’t See Coming


With Justin and Hailey Bieber set to throw a second lavish wedding this March, we got to thinking about celebrities whose speedy romances caught us by surprise. Here are some of the biggest, craziest whirlwind celebrity weddings of all time!

Whirlwind Celebrity Weddings

Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee

We all know this story has a messy ending. But did you know that Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee got married less than a week after their first date? They also got each other’s names tattooed on their fingers instead of traditional wedding bands. They’d go on to break up, make up, and fall apart in the public eye for more than a decade.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Sure, he cracks jokes about it now while hosting The Masked Singer. But 10 years ago, Nick Cannon rushed to the altar with diva Mariah Carey after just six weeks of dating. They renewed their vows several times, but it wasn’t enough to keep the couple together for the long haul. They now co-parent their twins with a surprisingly small amount of drama.

Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting (and then Karl Cook)

Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco doesn’t mess around when it comes to romance. It seems that once she’s made up her mind about a man, she practically runs down the aisle. She married first husband Ryan Sweeting three months after they met. They divorced in 2015, and six months later she met her next husband, Karl Cook.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Of all the Kardashians, Khloe might have the worst taste in men. And that’s impressive, considering some of the men the famous family has been linked to. Khloe married Lamar in 2009, just a month after they started dating. She filed for divorce three times, withdrawing the petition the first two instances.

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner

Maybe whirlwind celebrity weddings run in the family. Kris Jenner–matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan–married Bruce Jenner after dating for just five months. They tied the knot a month after her divorce from her first husband was finalized.

Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

This Aussie couple is surprisingly low-key, considering that Chris Hemsworth is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet. He and Elsa Pataky married just three months after they met. They’re parents to three adorable blonde demigods… I mean, totally normal human children.
