It’s not hard to see how the dashing, blue-eyed Frank Sinatra managed to get married four times. The swoon-worthy crooner and Rat Pack singer Sinatra first married his childhood sweetheart, Nancy Barbato, in 1939. After 12 years of marriage and three kids, they decided to file for divorce in 1951.
Sinatra went on to marry the Hollywood beauty Ava Gardner, which only lasted six years. Then he tied the knot with actress Mia Farrow and called it quits after two years. Finally, “Ol’ Blue Eyes” married model Barbara Marx in 1976 and stayed with her until his death in 1998.
Swizz Beatz – Mashona Tifrere
American record producer, rapper, and DJ Swizz Beatz has had quite an impressive career. Born in New York in the late 70s, he came from humble beginnings and carved out a place for himself through hard work. Before he married fellow Grammy-winning musician Alicia Keys, he married songwriter Mashona Tifrere.
The couple met in the early 2000s after collaborating on a project and got married in 2004. Their marriage lasted only four years, and they had a son together. These days though, Beatz loves nothing more than showing off his immensely talented wife Alicia Keys to the world, whether that be on the red carpet, at awards events, or simply on social media.
Nicolas Cage – Patricia Arquette
Oh, Nick Cage, has there ever been a more talked-about celebrity? This brilliant actor has been married four times and is still not giving up on love. Before he married Lisa Marie Presley and actress Alice Kim, he was married to actress Patricia Arquette.
The couple met in the mid-90s and tied the knot in 1995. They had six happy years together before calling it quits in 2001, but it seems Nick didn’t wallow for too long, as he married Elvis Presley’s daughter a year after. His most recent commitment was his marriage to makeup artist Erika Koike in 2019, but the marriage was annulled shortly after.
Marc Anthony – Dayanara Torres
Grammy-winning singer and actor Marc Anthony has become the world’s king of salsa music. And just like his music, Anthony seems equally seductive in real life. The first lucky lady on his four-marriage list was Dayanara Torres, a former Miss Universe beauty, whom he married in 2000.
They lasted four years, and Anthony waited exactly a week after his divorce to get married to Jennifer Lopez in 2004. He then divorced Lopez in 2014 and married model Shannon De Lima. Again, they separated after two short years, and Anthony stayed single for seven years. In 2023, he married model Nadia Ferreira.
Paul McCartney – Linda Eastman
Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is considered to be one of the greatest singer-songwriters in history. And we would have to agree. Just like his music, his personal life has been a rollercoaster of emotions. His first wife, Linda Eastman, was a talented photographer, and McCartney was crazy about her. They got married in 1969 and had four children together.
Sadly, their marriage was cut short when Linda died from cancer in 1998. McCartney went on to marry model Heather Mills four years later, and that lasted six years. It wasn’t until 2011 that he met his current wife, Nancy Shevell, and the two seem as happy as possible.
