Jerry Lee Lewis Marries the Ex-Wife of His Underage Ex-Wife’s Brother
Right-wingers concerned with the sanctity of marriage should probably shift their focus from the gays to Jerry Lee Lewis, who recently got married for the seventh time. That in and of itself is shocking, but what’s really unsettling is the family connection.
Remember back in 1957 when a 23-year-old Lewis married his 13-year-old cousin? Myra Gale Brown was the Courtney Stodden of her time. The couple stayed together for 13 years before getting divorced, after which Lewis went on to marry several other people.
Now here’s where his most recent marriage to Judith Brown (note the surname) gets interesting.
You see, Judith Brown is the ex-wife of Rusty Brown, Lewis’ second cousin. And Rusty Brown would be the brother of Myra Gale Brown, the minor-cousin-once-removed whom Lewis married in 1957.
