The Honeymoon’s Over

by | 13th, August 2004

‘WITH the average duration of a celebrity marriage now counted in days rather than years (and, in the case of Britney Spears, hours rather than days), something had to give.

‘Don’t leave me. We’ve only been married for 37 minutes’

And that something, it seems, is the honeymoon.

It has just become too difficult for stars to fit in a fortnight in the Bahamas or even 10 days on the Amalfi Coast when the honeymoon can often last longer than the marriage.

So, Nicolas Cage has decided to dispense with the honeymoon completely with his latest bride, 20-year-old former sushi waitress Alice Kim.

He even dispensed with guests at the San Jose wedding – and, just hours after saying ‘I do’ for about the 33rd time, Cage was back at work.

‘Nic is pretty bizarre when it comes to marriage,’ a source close to him tells the Enquirer. ‘He courts women, marries them, and then spends very little time with them.

‘It was the same thing with Lisa Marie Presley. Nic and Lisa Marie never had a real honeymoon.

‘And in their 107-day marriage, he spent little more than two weeks’ total time with her.’

We wonder, however, whether Cage is missing a trick here.

Rather than prolonging an unhappy marriage for more than three months, would he not have been better off going straight from wedding to honeymoon to divorce court?

Or, if he really wants to avoid a honeymoon, do a Britney and go straight from wedding chapel to divorce court?

However, it appears that Britney herself might not even make it to the chapel this time with reports that she has had her first bust-up with fiancé Kevin Federline.

The 26-year-old dancer apparently shouted at his bride-to-be, ‘I’m all the man you need now’, after hearing her on the phone to Ben Affleck.

A source tells the Enquirer: ‘Kevin’s paranoid about Ben because he’s handsome, famous, accomplished, successful and charismatic.’

And does wooden better than any actor since Pinocchio…’
