Celebrities certainly have their quirks. Some of them are guilty of diva-ish tantrums. Some have bizarre dress sense. Some give their children utterly ridiculous names. And some, well… some get married as though it’s a hobby! Here are some of those celebrities guilty of serial weddings but not quite so good at sticking it out when it comes to marriage.
Katie ‘Jordan’ Price – Married 3 times
Katie Price – former page 3 girl, reality TV star, business woman and serial marry-er. Ms Price has been down the aisle no fewer than 3 times in her 34 years on the planet. First there was husband number 1, the lovely Peter Andre. She was married to him from 2005 to 2009. Following her divorce from Andre, she married Alex Reid in 2010 before divorcing him in 2011. Then just a couple of weeks ago, she tied the knot with Keiran Haylor after a whirlwind romance. Will it be third time lucky? Or will price be back down the aisle again before the dress is even out of fashion?
Larry King – Married 8 times
79 year old American chat show host, Larry King, makes Katie Price look like she’s struggling to keep up! He’s been married a whopping 8 times (twice to the same woman).
- First there was Freda Miller, who Larry met in 1952. Their marriage was annulled in 1953 (reportedly by the couple’s parents).
- In 1958 he married Annette Kaye before they divorced in 1961.
- That same year, King married Alene Atkins (whom he divorced in 1963).
- Mary Francis ‘Mickey’ Sutphin became Larry King’s 4th wife when they tied the knot in 1963. They divorced in 1966.
- In 1967, Lay King remarried Alene Atkins. It didn’t work out this time either: they divorced in 1972 after what was a record 5 year marriage for the TV star.
- In 1976, King married Sharon Lepore. They divorced in 1983. These marriages were getting gradually longer. 7 years that time.
- In 1989, he married Julie Alexander. They were divorced in 1992, after separating 2 years earlier.
- In 1997, Larry King married for the 8th time. He and Shawn Southwick are still married some 16 years later, though they almost got divorced in 2010. But filed but then cancelled their petitions
So Larry King is certainly a serial marry-er!
Ivana Trump – Married 4 times
Multi-millionaire, Ivana Trump, has been married 4 times.
- Alfred Winklmayr became husband number one when the pair married in 1971. They divorced in 1976
- The second marriage was the most famous. She married business tycoon Donald Trump in 1977. They were married for 15 years before he divorced her in 1992.
- In 1995 she married Riccardo Mazzuchelli before they divorced in 1997
- In 2008, she married Rossano Rubicondi. They divorced in 2009
Those are just 3 celebrity serial marry-ers of quite literally scores of them. And while Larry King seems to put them all to shame in the ‘who-can-get-married-the-most’ stakes, there’s still plenty of time for Katie Price to catch up!
