NATCHEZ — Jerry Lee Lewis has wed for the seventh time in a ceremony this month in Mississippi, according to a newspaper report.
The Natchez Democrat reports that Lewis, nicknamed “The Killer,” married Judith Brown on March 9. She has been the 76-year-old country and early rock music legend’s caregiver. She also formerly was married to Lewis’ cousin, Rusty. Rusty’s older sister, Myra Gale Brown, married Lewis in 1957 when she was 13 and was his third wife. The marriage caused shockwaves for Lewis’ career.
Lewis’ last marriage ended in 2004 when he divorced Kerrie McCarver after 20 years together.
The newspaper reports the 62-year-old Brown and Lewis married at a private home in Natchez, Miss., and have spent the past three weeks touring Mississippi and Louisiana.
Brown told the Democrat she became Lewis’ caregiver about two years ago.
