The celebrity world is often associated with glamour, fame and fortune, but it is also known for its high divorce rate. Some celebrities have been married more times than most, with some having walked down the aisle six or seven times.
Singer Jerry Lee Lewis and comedy actor Richard Pryor are two of the most prolific celebrity marriage veterans, having both been married seven times. Lewis, known as ‘The Killer’, has been married to seven different women since 1957, including his cousin, Myra Gale Brown, who was just 13 years old when they married.
Actor Tony Curtis is another celebrity who has been married six times. He was married to Janet Leigh, the mother of his daughter Jamie Lee Curtis, from 1951 to 1962. His other marriages include Leslie Allen, Christine Kaufmann, Andrea Savio, Lisa Deutsch and Jill Vandenberg.
Actor Henry Fonda was married five times, the same number as Ginger Rogers, Clark Gable, Stan Laurel, Joan Collins, Dennis Hopper and Billy Bob Thornton. Fonda’s marriages included Margaret Sullavan, Frances Ford Seymour, Susan Blanchard, Afdera Franchetti and Shirlee Adams.
Other celebrities who have been married multiple times include Elizabeth Taylor (eight times), Mickey Rooney (eight times), Larry King (eight times), Zsa Zsa Gabor (nine times) and Carmen Electra (four times).
It seems that, despite the glitz and glamour of the celebrity world, many of its stars have had a hard time finding lasting love.
