J.Lo and Disastrous Celebrity Couples

The Heartbreak: Rodman sought an annulment 10 days later, claiming he didn't even remember the ceremony. They were divorced in March 1999.

The Aftermath: Electra, 31, is now considering turning her next marriage — to rocker Dave Navarro — into a reality TV event. "MTV approached us," she told reporters. "We're thinking about it."

Famous for rebounds (at least in the NBA), Rodman marked his 42nd birthday in May by walking down the isle with 36-year-old Michelle Moyer, with whom he has two children.

Rodman has his own secret to marital bliss — he and his wife live in separate homes, a mile apart, in Newport Beach, Calif. "I like it that way," Rodman told reporters in May. "Michelle and the kids come over on weekends."

Robert Evans and Catherine Oxenberg

Their Story: In July 1998, the man who produced such classics as The Godfather, Chinatown and Marathon Man was smitten with actress Catherine Oxenberg, who played Joan Collins' daughter on Dynasty and appeared twice as Princess Diana in TV movies.

When Evans, 68, met the 36-year-old actress, he had recently suffered a stroke and was writing a book about his near-death experience, I Heard the Fat Lady Sing.

The Heartbreak: Within nine days, their marriage was annulled. "I forgot it had only been six weeks since I had been hit with a stroke," Evans told Variety.

The Aftermath: Now 73, Evans has divorced for the sixth time, parting in July with 34-year-old Versace model Leslie Ann Woodward. Ironically, it was not long after his latest flick, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Oxenberg, 41, is married to actor Casper Van Dien and they have one child.

Drew Barrymore and Tom Green

Their Story: She was a party-hardy child star who had been married and divorced within a month to bartender Jeremy Thomas. Green was TV's leading shock comic, famous for cavorting in public in a moose carcass, interviewing his parents about their sexual fetishes, and putting his cancerous testicle on public display.

The Heartbreak: Hollywood's weirdest couple teased the public relentlessly during a 17-month courtship, once promising to marry on Saturday Night Live. They tied the knot in Malibu in July 2001. Five months later, shortly after the couple escaped a fire in Barrymore's Beverly Hills home, Green filed for divorce.

The Aftermath: Green, 32, who now hosts an MTV talk show, told People, "I've had wind that lasted longer than our marriage." He recently announced that he's placed an online personal ad on Yahoo!, while she's been dating the Strokes' drummer, Fabrizio Moretti.

Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley Their Story: He was Elvis Presley's biggest fan and she was the greatest souvenir at Graceland. They married in August 2002, days before the 25th anniversary of the King's death, and spent that night in his Memphis shrine.

Their Heartbreak: After that evening, reports emerged that Presley and Cage rarely spent time together. Five months later, he filed for divorce and she proclaimed, "We shouldn't have got married in the first place."

The Aftermath: Presley's third marriage was even shorter than her amazing 20-month union with Michael Jackson. At 35, she managed to launch her singing career while Cage, 39, earned an Oscar nomination for Adaptation.
