Did anyone see this one coming? Because we sure didn’t. The country star and actress met during a tsunami relief benefit in 2005—and tied the knot a mere month later. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to last; they split four months after their wedding and the marriage was annulled. The reason? Renée cited “fraud.” Ouch.
9. Julia Roberts and Danny Moder
Julia Roberts and cameraman Danny Moder met on the set of The Mexican in 2000; and by June of 2001, Julia had split from Benjamin Bratt, who she had been dating at the time, and Moder had filed for divorce. Then, on July 3, 2002, the couple flew 60 guests to Julia’s New Mexico ranch under the guise of a 4th of July party—except that when the guests arrived, the couple revealed that it was in fact a wedding ceremony instead. Nine years and three kids later and they’re still living happily ever after!
10. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon denied that their whirlwind romance was going on the entire time it was happening—until she released a photo at the beginning of May 2008 confirming that they had wed—the previous month! Although they were only together for roughly two months before tying the knot, they seem to be going stronger than ever: They recently renewed their vows (as seen above), and they just threw a phenomenal first birthday party for their twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
