A RARE PHOTO OF TOM JONES AND HIS WIFE LINDA

tomcutjoneswife.jpg
tomcutjonesyoungM_228x444-1.jpg
We were fascinated when this photo of Tom Jones and his wife Linda turned up because they’re almost never photographed together. They were seen leaving a video rental store in LA. UK papers say that Linda lives in Tom’s Beverly Hills mansion but she rarely goes out because she supposedly suffers from agoraphobia. She leaves the house rarely and when Tom is around to accompany her and he is often out of town on tour. Apparently Linda doesn’t take part in Tom’s glamorous lifestyle and she has turned a blind eye to his many flirtations. She and Tom were only 16 when they wed back in 1957.

    The picture is so ‘rare’ you found it on the internet. We don’t want to read about these living corpses.

    Well Janet, you’ve done it again! You scooped everyone else! Keep up the good work on all those celebrities popular in the 1970s.

    I think it’s a good story. I feel for this poor lady whose husband has abandoned her. I wish she had an advocate in her life.

    Hey guys,
    I realize a lot of you aren’t any older than 18 or so, but, give these two some respect- Married at 16 in 1957 & STILL MARRIED !!!???
    WOW!
    Tom Jones was big back in the day, & alot of us born before 1980 are happy to see a mix of celebrity info.
    There are only so many pix of Shitney & LiBlow one can stand.
    So, please allow the RARE moments when Janet gives us a “blast from our past.”
    You all will be in our shoes one day.

    Hey J-9…U did good; couldn’t have said it better. Now for my two sense (er, cents)…Tom Jones has always been a ho-monger. And, (for the older set), we have long known Linda still sticks by him and they prob will never divorce. The only thing I wonder about is does she not worry that he will catch a disease and give her the gift that keeps on giving?

    Unbelievable responses from some. Love the photo, Janet. Linda looks lovely,even with the weight. Happy to see Tom is happy enough to be seen around with her.
    Hope she’s happy and contented.

    Hey, I’d rather be married to Tom Jones and have him cheat than be married to some unsuccessful guy living from paycheque to paycheque who also cheats. At least she has money and celebrity power to keep her company when he’s catting around. When other women’s husbands cat around, what do they have? Kraft dinner.

    Linda, even tho you don’t seem to care,….Tom HAS broken the 7th Commandment repeatedly. So, putting myself in your place, here is what I would do. I would say to myself that then it is OK for me to break the 11th Commandment. So what is the 11th Commandment? It’s the one that says “Thou shalt not chop off thy hubby’s balls and whizzer and feed them to the birds”.

    Tom, you are a sinner; whether Linda lets you get by with it or not is beside the point. BTW, always wondered…who is taller you or little Tommy Cruise and/or who wears the highest shoe lifts?

    Nice going Mich- Absolutely right !
    To stay with someone & have lived thru all of the life stages is a real testament to REAL LOVE.
    Sure, it’s easy these days to “trade up” as you say… it’s nice & refreshing to see a couple stick it out.That’s exactly what marriage means.
    Marriage ain’t an easy thing to do- Hardly anyone is anymore…….

    Uh, are there words??? Well, yes. It is WELL KNOWN that Tom Jones has cheated on his wife for DECADES and is only still married to her for financial reasons. But jeeze, could she take a little better care of herself? My parents are their ages and look a WHOLE lot better than she does.

    Has anyone noticed that Janet and Linda have the same hair color and have never been photographed together? Could they be one and the same? Look at their faces.

    I give them alot of credit for staying married all those years. I’m certain the number of temptations must have been exceptional but I gotta ‘big up’ the man for living up to his wedding vowes!
    Linda looks unatractive and masculine in the more recent photo and no doubt that puts many of the younger viewers off.

    She can keep a man for fifty years that woman is amazing. Pity though she did not take better care of herself. With all her money surely she can have work done at the home. But what a perfect excuse for Tom to cheat. She can’t leave the house to catch them.

    I was an entertainer in Vegas 10 yrs ago and I knew a girl named Kimberly – dancer / singer who was having a torrid affair with him for over 2 years. His wife was his manager…

    It’s nice to hear that a couple stays together for 51 years. She doesn’t look that different from other women in their mid 60s so lay off her.
    And Janet, don’t listen to the young ones who only want to hear about Britney, some of us “oldies” like to hear about the older celebrities.

    The fact that he is still with her today. Speaks for itself.
    Torriad affairs happen, but never last. Besides, I’ll bet most are made up. Just to keep that person name in the celebrity tabloids.
    Look at Britney Spears, she’s always up to something. I thought she shaved her hair – my-my how fast that stuff grows, eh?

    She would do wise to get a personal trainer to lose some of that weight, him too.
    That insecure feeling of that phobia will go away when those pounds start coming off.
    Try telling that to millions of Americans who are over weight, though. The Jones could lead by example… Imagine if they did buckle down and looked at what they ate on a daily basis.
    Wonder what kind of exercise they’ve participated in the last 10 years? I’ll bet he could get Arnold and he could point them in the right direction as to what to do.
    I’m surprise that guy doesn’t have a weight loss book out or maybe Tom Jones could write one.
    You ought check out some of those british rockers who are kinda chubby as well.

    Are you sure that’s the same lady ? It looks like she’s grown about a foot or more over those years together…

    No doubt, she’s his best friend.

    He still looks handsome, but the years have not been kind to his wife. She looks like a tranny, and not a good looking one at that. No wonder he spends so much time catting around.

    everyone seems to side with tom on all of this, he is a dirtbag, how cruel could he be to his wife.. and throwing it in her face. its no wonder she has issues,,and is terrified to do anything, anytime she walks out of the house alone she is bombarded with stares and whispers of what tom has done to her, he needs to lose his whole fan following for what he has done to her, if it was she who did the cheating, she would be the biggest whore in the world and poor tom,, what a joke

    I HAVE BEEN A TOM JOES FAN FOR DECADES AND I HAVE SEEN PHOTOS OF HIS FAMILY FOR DECADES AS WELL. SHE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE TOM JONES’S WIFE.
    SOMEBODY NEEDS TO GET THEIR FACTS STRAIGHT AND STOP ASSUMING THINGS WHEN PRESENTING PHOTOS.
    TOM’S WIFE, MELINDA, (OR LINDA AS SHE’S KNOWN) IS RARELY PHOTOGRAPHED.

    Probably was Sheila. I think Linda will never leave the house. All that money doesn’t buy happiness or at least the mental health help she so deperately needs. It’s very sad.

    That’s the kind of trash that “big time” Hollywood reporters and UK reporters publish when they can’t find “real” news.

    Many people do not realize it, but marriage is used in the Bible as a symbol of our relationship with Jesus. He is the bridegroom, and His people are the bride. When we turn away from Jesus, it is like cheating on our spouses. We should treat our spouses with the love that Jesus showers on us.

    No matter what we do, Jesus always forgives us and takes us back. How many of us wants Him to dump us? Linda is like Jesus–loving, patient, and forgiving. Tom is like some of us, sinning for years and finally turning around. Better late than never. At least they are almost at the finish line. “The race is not given to the swift nor the strong, but to them who endure to the end.” Who says there isn’t hell to pay along the way? “Gotta love them.” They are called survivors.

    I am not saying take crap off a spouse, but, according to popular surveys, most divorced spouses regret their decision to part. Also, common sense says there are many reasons why couples should part–extreme abuse, bestiality, etc. If you fear that your spouse will give you AIDS because of his/her infidelities, take the risk or let them hoe that row by themselves.

    She did not put up with his affairs. But married at the incredibly young age of 16 from a place and in an era that condoned this shit, her confidence was so eroded that she was paralysed.

    Dont forget it was Melinda who believed in Tom, supported him when he was unsuccessful.
    Nor did she ‘put up’ with them, but was often feisty about it, till depression overwhelmed her.

    Imagine the ongoing humiliation from his boasts of 250 affairs a year as well as the more longterm ones, and that doesnt encapuslate the erosion of his comments about her in public and likely in private too.

    Her confidence must have been non existant.
    As to him – an insincere fake. ‘It didnt mean anything’ Bollocks what an ancient excuse, and how degrading to the other women, not least his wife.
    He wanted to maintain his image of a ‘grounded welsh lad’ AND of course his fortune from divorce, as well as the reassurance of a familliar mother figure.

    A vulgar and dishonourable man/boy

    Rest in peace Melinda
