The term “til death do us part” has been thrown out of the window over the past couple of decades. Nearly half of marriages in the United States wind up in divorce. Some celebrities are known more for their marriages than their actual career, whether it’s Britney Spears’ 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander or the infamous Carmen Electra/Dennis Rodman marriage. The following celebrities have tried numerous times to make their marriages work, but they simply fell apart at the end.
The first person on the list will go down as the most divorced celebrity of all time.
10. Zsa Zsa Gabor
The late Zsa Zsa Gabor was one of the most glamorous actresses to ever step foot in Hollywood. She was also known for dropping men like flies; the Hungarian was married to nine different men during her life. Her list of ex-husbands includes Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton and Barbie Doll co-creator Jack Ryan.
9. Richard Pryor
While Richard Pryor was one of the most influential comedians of all time, his love life took several hits with five different marriages. Most of these divorces were rumored to have spawned from Pryor being physically abusive. He was remarried to his fourth wife Jennifer Lee nearly 20 years after their divorce in 1982.
8. Elizabeth Taylor
Beloved actress Elizabeth Taylor enjoyed the married life so much that she did it eight times. A week after her divorce from Michael Wilding was finalized, she married her third husband Michael Todd, who died in a plane crash days after their one year wedding anniversary. Months after his death, she started dating husband number four Eddie Fisher, who was still married to Debbie Reynolds. While that marriage was on the rocks, she began dating her next ex Richard Burton.
This next person made headlines for their alleged domestic abuse.
7. Liza Minnelli
Much like her mother Judy Garland, iconic actress Liza Minnelli isn’t the best when it comes to finding love. Her marriage to fourth husband David Gest drew national attention when the promoter accused the star of physically abusing him during their 16 month marriage. The award winning star has been single ever since.
6. Christie Brinkley
While model Christie Brinkley’s most noticible marriage was to singer Billy Joel, the Los Angeles resident found herself in a publicized battle with her fourth husband Peter Halsey Cook. In 2008, Cook admitted to cheating on her with Diana Bianchi, who was 18 years old at the time. During the divorce proceedings, it was also revealed that he was very physical with her children.
