A History of the Shortest Celebrity Marriages

R. Kelly and Aaliyah

Length Of Marriage: 90 days

On August 31, 1994, Aaliyah married Kelly, her producer and mentor. The marriage certificate said she was 18, which was not true and fairly dumb as Aaliyah's successful debut album, titled (ahem) Age Ain't Nothing But a Number, had been released in June and her age, 15, was widely known. Vibe magazine obtained the marriage certificate and broke the story; Aaliyah's parents took action to have the marriage annulled.
