Jerry Lee Lewis Marries Cousin's Ex-Wife


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 scandal ruined the piano player's career.

Jerry Lee and Judith, who has been his caregiver for several years, were hitched March 9 in Natchez, Mississippi, according to Lewis' rep.
