Jerry Lee Lewis Marries Cousin's Ex-Wife

31 March 2012 9:31 AM, PDT | Extra | See recent Extra news »

Rock and roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis has a penchant for the term "kissing cousins."

Heading down the aisle for the seventh time, Lewis, 76, married Judith Brown, 62, who was previously married to Jerry Lee's cousin, Rusty Brown.

Here's the tricky part: Rusty is the brother of Myra Gale Brown, who wed Jerry Lee in 1957 when the "Great Balls of Fire" singer was 23 and Myra was only 13. That marriage (Lewis' third) lasted 13 years but the »

Jerry Lee Lewis Marries for Seventh Time - Weds Caregiver Judith Brown

30 March 2012 1:16 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Jerry Lee Lewis has married for the seventh time. The 'Great Balls of Fire' singer wed his caregiver Judith Brown in a ceremony in Mississippi on March 9. The wedding was reportedly so secret even the singer's daughter, Pheobe Lewis, was unaware he was getting married - even though she lives with him, according to People magazine. Judith, 62, was previously wed to Jerry's cousin, Rusty Brown, and - making the union even more closely entwined - Rusty is the brother of Jerry's third wife Myra Gale Brown. Jerry's 1957 marriage to Myra caused huge controversy at the time, as she was just 13 years old and also his cousin once removed. They ended their union 13 years later. The pianist - who has seven children - was last married to Kerrie McCarver, but the union ended in 2004 after 20 years together after they both accused each other of infidelity. Kerrie was awarded a »

Jerry Lee Lewis Is Determined to Keep It in the Family

30 March 2012 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For Jerry Lee Lewis's new (and seventh) marriage, he's reprising one of his greatest hits. CNN reports that the 76-year-old "Great Balls of Fire" singer wed Judith Brown this month, whom he had met through his cousin Rusty ... Judith's former husband. If that sounds like a familiar sort of scandal for Lewis, it should: He infamously married his 13-year-old cousin Myra Gale back when he was 23, and yes, Myra was Rusty's sister. Boy, Jerry Lee has really got it out for that guy, huh? »
