11 Hollywood celebrities who got married at least 3 times: from Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West and Jennifer Lopez’s 4th hubby Ben Affleck, to Angelina Jolie’s long-term love, Brad Pitt

Not all couples are meant to be …

According to Time, about 40 per cent of marriages in the US end in divorce. For Hollywood romances, splitting up can be tough too as they’re often under the watchful eye of the media when going through the process.

Some celebrities have tried their luck in love but ended in divorce – some more (and much more) than others. Here are 11 celebrities who got married over three times:

1. Elizabeth Taylor – eight weddings

Elizabeth Taylor might be the most famous example, with eight weddings and seven husbands to her name.

Taylor was married to seven men: Conrad Hilton Jr., Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton from 1964 to 1974 and then again from 1975 to 1976, John Warner and, lastly, Larry Fortensky.

2. Jennifer Lopez – four weddings

Most recently, Lopez, 53, wed Ben Affleck, 50, in Las Vegas almost 20 years after their first engagement.

Lopez’s first husband was Ojani Noa, a waiter, whom she was married to from 1997 to 1998. After that, she wed dancer Cris Judd, which lasted from 2001 to 2003.

Famously, she was then engaged to Ben Affleck, though the two never made it down the aisle and split in early 2004. She married Marc Anthony that year, and the two musicians were married until 2014.

Lopez was then engaged once again, this time to Alex Rodriguez. They split in April 2021. And now, famously, we are living in the time of Bennifer 2.0, with Lopez and Affleck tying the knot in July in Las Vegas, almost 20 years after Affleck first proposed in November 2002.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” Lopez wrote in her newsletter.

3. Kim Kardashian – three weddings

Kardashian’s first husband was Damon Thomas, whom she married when she was 19 years old in 2000. They divorced in 2004.

“No one really knows what has happened in my life,” she told the WSJ magazine in 2015. “No one really knows why my first marriage didn’t last; no one knows why my second didn’t. And I’m proud of those silences.”

Cruise’s second two marriages are two of the most well-known celebrity relationships of all time – the now 60-year-old was married to Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001 and the two co-starred in multiple films together, most famously Eyes Wide Shut.

His third marriage to Katie Holmes, dubbed “TomKat” by the media, will go down in history. Their marriage lasted from 2006 to 2012.
