For Better Or Worse, These Celebrities Married The Same Person Twice

Celebrity marriages and divorces tend to make front-page tabloid news. Hey, it’s hard-hitting gossip! But when celebrities get married, divorced, only to wind up saying their “I do’s” to one another once again, well, let’s just say it’s hard for many people not to get a bit of whiplash.

From the very public relationship, divorce, and re-kindling of Elizabeth Taylor’s marriage to Richard Burton to the “I’m going to write a song about everything wrong in our relationship but am going to remarry you anyway” of Eminem and Kim Scott, for better or worse, these celebrities married the same person twice.

Actor and comedian Richard Pryor didn’t meet his future wife Jennifer Lee on the set of his latest film. Instead, he met her in a very mundane way, while Lee was helping a mutual friend decorate Pryor’s house in Northridge, California. During an interview, Lee confessed that the initial meeting was it for her. She fell in love.

After a long and hectic few years of dating, the two wound up tying the knot in 1981. But the marital bliss was short-lived due to Pryor’s partying lifestyle, and they divorced the next year. But their love was still strong, and they wed for the second and final time in 2001.
