The Wedding Bells That Didn’t Ring

Posted on Jul 30 2014 - 12:37pm by Kaitlyn Jeffries

From runaway brides to grooms whose cold feet just couldn’t be thawed, this list is compiled with your favorite celebs who just couldn’t make it down the aisle.


1- Jennifer Lopez has been around the preverbal marriage block once or twice, much to her chagrin. One of her more popular grooms-to-be was Ben Affleck, who is now happily married with children. However, back in the day this couple’s relationship was highly publicized and their breakup even more so. But she’s married, had twins, divorced and dallied with boy toy Casper Smart since then. Who’s next?


2- Playing a runaway bride in real life, Julia Roberts ditched fiancé Kiefer Sutherland before their intended wedding after he was caught cheating with a stripper. Kiefer, until this very day, vehemently denies ever having cheated on Julia. Not that it matters now because in the end, who is Kiefer Sutherland again? Exactly.


3- Before Angie, and even before Jen, Brad Pitt was extremely close to marrying Gwyneth Paltrow. But, before you point fingers at Brad, Gwyneth has been very honest about their relationship and even going so far as to say that it was her self destructive mental state that messed up that entire relationship. She even admitted that she was the one who decided to end the relationship. She went on to meet and marry Chris Martin, but I am sure you know all about that!

Britney Spears out and about

4- This isn’t the first time Britney Spears has backed out of a marriage at the eleventh hour and I’m willing to bet it won’t be the last, I mean if you had made the colossal mistake of marrying and breeding with Kevin Federline, then I think you would be a little wary as well for any future mate. However, that’s another story entirely, her almost marriage to her conservator, Jason Trawick is the discussion at large. The couple had been dating since 2009 and much to the shock of Britney’s fans and to Jason himself, Britney broke it off and has since stated that it wasn’t one of her hardest brake ups. Ouch!


5- Miley Cyrus and Hunger Games beaux Liam Hemsworth never quite made it down the aisle. Hell, they didn’t even make it through a full month of being engaged before they called it quits. The break up was notably hard for the singer, yet has not put a damper on her ‘turn up’ time.


6- Probably the messiest break up on our list was between Kanye West and his ex Alexis Phifer. Not only did he dedicate an entire album to his anger, but Kanye lost his mother after she underwent surgery in order to look her best for his upcoming nuptials.


7- The cheating ex of Sandra Bullock, Jesse James ended his engagement with popular tattoo artist Kat Von D after only six months of being engaged/ together.


8- It seemed fitting that Simon Cowell would end his relationship to fiancé Mezhgan Hussainy in a cruel way. Reportedly, Simon cheated with a friend’s wife and got her pregnant. Apparently, the two have remained amicable and have even traveled together recently for a vacation.


9- No one truly believed Hugh Hefner was really going to marry his 26 year old bride Crystal Harris. But after a brief split from their engagement, Crystal and Hef made it down the aisle.


10- The 21st century romance of Kelly Osborne and Luke Worrall ended after a nasty battle of hate displayed for the world to see over Facebook. The feud began after it was revealed to Kelly that Luke had been cheating on her during their entire relationship. Needless to say, this engagement ended as explosively as the couple’s relationship began.
