Some Midrash say that Moses divorced Tzipporah when he went to Egypt and presumably remarried when Yitro brought her back.

    משה ואהרון בכוהניו . Moshe is counted as a Kohen becuase he did the temple service during the 7 days of the inauguration of the mishkan. – Chanoch Jan 24 '11 at 0:18

Amram was the eldest, and so (before Mattan Torah) was the kohen of the family, and he took back Yocheved whom he’d divorced. (I somehow don’t think that qualifies as a “famous kohen”, though…)
