50’s rockabilly Jerry Lee Lewis (“Great Balls of Fire”) is not only still performing at the age of 76, but he’s getting married for the seventh time! To his cousin’s wife! Back in 1957 Jerry caused a huge scandal and nearly ended his career when he married his 13 year old cousin Myra. (top photo) Now his cousin Rusty says Jerry broke up his marriage and stole his wife of 24 years. Rusty’s not happy but he begrudgingly told The Enquirer that his exwife will probably gamble away all Jerry’s money in the casinos like she did his.

    Hopefully, Jerry knows the bad habits of his soon-to-be new wife. RE: the scandal of him marrying his young cousin back in the day, I can see how it was scandalous because the new wife was his cousin. However, the age shouldn’t have been a big deal, because lots of men back then were attracted to, and then married, much younger women. Think of Priscilla Presley… she was 13 when she met, and then starting fooling around, w/ Elvis. I also met a girl in high school, back in the ’70s and from the deep South, who had married her husband at age 14 — started dating him at 12. She told me that this was not unusual at all! 🙂

    This is what happens when you allow homosexuals to marry. They DESTROY the sanctity of marriage.

    This Fornicator has defiled the marital bed 7 times. And it is NOT his fault. It is the fault of the radical homosexual agenda that fights for equal rights for same sex marriage. This is causing the breakdown of the family and the destruction of the sanctity of one man, one woman, for life.

    We must all stand and fight equal rights for the evil homosexual so that our society does not enter the cesspool and this consequence does not happen.

    Christeen: are you for REAL???!!! What in the holy HELL does this post have to do with homosexuals??? Your fucked up rant is an abomination against all humanity, and it makes me sick that individuals like you spew this drivel that means NOTHING at all in the REAL world! Do yourself a favor a go buy a new vibrator and shove it up your ASS!!!

    And yeah, we all know how successful “heterosexual marraiges” tradionally have been in that more than 50% of them end in divorce. Maybe you should buy a Tammy Wynette album to listen to while you fuck yourself!

    To Janet: WHEN are you going to FINALLY start deleting these kinds of posts that are so either racist or gaybashing from your site? Do you know that your site is KNOWN more for that than for gossip or entertainment?

    These freaks are destroying your business. Come into the real world and realize all sexualities and ALL races should be treated as equals in this modern world and anything less than that is unacceptable!

    Count how many of your previous (and highly entertaining) visitors have gone to not return for these very reasons after begging you to fix it. I have gone several times myself but come back in hopes that things would have changed by then. I guess it’s nope, huh?

    Who knows who looney Christeen really was…maybe a PC poster wanting to make a point. The real problem is using multiple names but who can control that on a free site.

    Jerry Lee is the last living of the Elvis crowd and was always a free spirit. He, like Willie Nelson, has been broke and rich and broke multiple times and sounds like this little wifee will be the one to see him out. I thought he had a daughter who was running his finances.

    Jerry Lee’s cousin’s are Jimmy Swaggart and Country singer Mickey Gilley so both talent and instability run in the family.

    Hilary, “I also met a girl in high school, back in the ’70s and from the deep South, who had married her husband at age 14 — started dating him at 12. She told me that this was not unusual at all! ”

    SHE LIED TO YOU. It is unusual. Don’t isolate the marrying young to the south. It just would not be accurate. I am probably older than most everyone on this site and I recall only one person marrying at 15(and not pregnant by the way) and they ran off to Ringgold Georgia. They were married for 10 yrs before he died in a tractor accident.

    True most married between 16-18 during the 40’s & 50’s & 50’s. Usually a girl would marry right after graduation (if she went to school and most did).


    Jerry Lee Lewis was an amazing performer for the time but has always been rumored to be an arrogant, self centered, hateful person none-the-less. Many think the KILLER literally killed two of his wives. Who knows?

    You already know the answer to that one.

    These people generate enough chaos to create more posts and more posts…etc. It doesn’t matter if they are an employee, owner or excitable poster.

    Sadly, I think more people are actually offended by their posts and don’t return than those who actually comment on the site. Why keep commenting when nothing happens and these offenders are left to run wild.

    As an artist he may be alrite, as a person he must be one of the most despicable. Enuff to mention the fact he married his own cousin who was still a child. Paedophilia in full sight. Paedophile, handler and programmer. Sadistic too. Read CATHY O’BRIEN’s “TRANCEFORMATION OF AMERICA” and u will get the idea.

    Not in this case…Jerry was a youngster when he married his cousin…..others might have just carried on an affair but at least JL put a ring on her finger. This was also a cousin…not a grandaughter who BLACK Morgan Freeman had raised and obviously coveted from the time she reached puberty! Same true of Woody the woodster Allen who even got nearer the tree with a step-daughter.

    JL must have loved being married but it has cost him a fortune and more!

    Being from Memphis, Tn., and having met Jerry Lee several times,( Not hard to do when you were a young woman. We are legion)I can say without a doubt, that Jerry Lee is a womanizing male tramp, who has been involved in so many public and not so public scandels and has been known to cut corners whem it comes to morality and fair play, this does not surprise me He chased me like a dog does a cat, even though he knew I was married. I am not special, BTW, just in his sights at the time. I worked in a club during the 70’s, and he came in often to whisper obcenities in my direction, even though he knew that I was happily and faithfully married. I wasn’t anything special, Just a young woman, one among many, who was caught up in his headlights..He has a big problem with promiscuity, and being the “Great Jerry Lee Lewis”. He can’t beleive that a woman would turn him down, and expected us all to immediatlybegin to fall over naked on his table. Many did, many didn’t. I did’nt. He will remain a pig until he dies.

    True but no different than many to whom the NBA and NFL players whispered too……Jerry was at least responsible to his children.

    Random thoughts:

    Good for you Mary-Claire, in today’s society, a young woman married or not would go for the celeb just for the limelight.

    Oh sure Christeen, homosexuals are to blame for knuckleheads who marry 7 times. Certainly it explains why the sky didn’t fall in here in Massachusetts when gay marriage was allowed. All those gay couples who’ve been married for many years could tell ole Jerry Lee a thing or two.

    I should have laid a bet that Strom would talk about Morgan Freeman as soon as I saw this topic.

    Anyone shocked by the Whitney Houston autopsy?

    No? I thought not.

    I get Christine’s post–he/she was being ironic, and making a statement about people who are against gay marriage, and hold up heterosexual marriage as an ideal.

    He’s worse than NBA or NFL players, they aren’t screwing their own relatives. Also, he’s WHITE and you feel a kin to him because he might be just like you Strom.

    Im Pam Des Barre’s book Rock Bottom she details what an egocentric slob and total asshole “the killer” is but the worst is Chuck Berry. Chuck’s favourite kink is having young girls straddle over him and piddle while he handles himself. Chuck’s been doing that since the fifties, he is a demented weirdo.
    The best and classiest entertainer of that era besides Elvis is Little Richard.

    The “killer” is the perfect nickname for him. Besides being a pedophile and womanizer a couple of his young wives have died under very strange circumstances. I doubt some creep like this would have been allowed to continue his twisted ways so long if he wasn’t a celebrity.

    1982 Enquirer article

    “My life would make a damn good country song” sings Jerry Lee. Last week it made a damn sad country song. At 47, rock rebel Jerry was suffering the latest tragedy of his seemingly ill-starred life, the mysterious death of Shawn Michelle, 25, his 5th wife and bride of scarcely 3 months. Found by a housekeeper in the bedroom of the couple’s rambling brick home in Nesbit, Miss.

    Shawn was pronounced dead & taken to the Tennessee Centre for Health in Memphis. A preliminary autopsy report by medical examiner Jerry Francisco listed the cause of death as pulmonary edema, a buildup of fluid in the lungs. According to Francisco who performed the autopsy on Elvis Presley 6 years ago such a buildup is consistent with a drug overdose. Reports about the condition of Shawn’s body when it was found further muddied the situation. Shawn’s mother, Janice Kleinhans, of Garden City, Michigan, said she felt there was a missing piece to the puzzle, “but I need to know what it is.”

    While local & state authorities launched an investigation, Jerry & those near him expressed only shock at the death. “I don’t know what happened I loved her & she loved me. Everything was fine.” echoed Lewis’ sister, Linda: “They were very happy.” Dolan added that Shawn had been taking prescription drugs because of recent dental work & hinted at an accidental overdose. Lewis’ manager, Whitten, recalled that the victim “had sleeping pills prescribed trying to keep up with us on tour, where you have to sleep when you can. Lewis was at home when his wife’s body was discovered.

    Shawn’s life with Lewis was far from ordinary & the funeral for the former Detroit secretary was no different. At services in the clapboard Assembly of God church in Ferriday, La., the flamboyant singer arrived in a white suit & red ruffled shirt-just like he wore at the wedding last June 7. “He looked like he was going dancing,” complained Kleinhans, who exchanged not a word with the widower. After a eulogy by Jerry Lee’s cousin, Gerald Lewis, a baby-blue hearse bore the brass-fitted, ivory-colored coffin to the Lewis family plot in nearby Clayton, Louisiana.

    Personal tragedies have cast a pall over much of Lewis’ life. At age 22, after helping lead the rock revolution with such hits as Great Balls of Fire & Whole Lot of Shakin’ he watched his career tailspin into scandal when he took his 13-year-old cousin Myra as his 3rd wife. His 3-year-old son, Steve Allen, named after the show host, drowned in the family pool. 11 years later Jerry Lee Jr., 19, was killed in an auto accident. Lewis’ bouts with drink & drugs came to be as commonly publicized as his marital woes & his estranged fourth wife, Jaren, took him to court, accusing him of threatening her life. Last year, while awaiting a final divorce decree, Jaren, 39, also drowned in a swimming accident.

    Chuck Berry’s Deviant Sexual Fetishes

    Chuck Berry’s Deviant Sexual Fetishes

    There is no disputing that Berry has been an exceptionally successful musician. However, it seems as though Berry’s music has never been his “true calling” or driving influence. Instead, Berry seems to be motivated by his one true love in life – watching women take dumps.

    In 1990 Berry was sued by several women who alleged that Berry installed a video camera in the ladies’ bathrooms at two of his St. Louis restaurants. Berry probably installed the camera so that he could masturbate vigorously while watching video of women going to the bathroom at his restaurant. It’s possible that Berry had microphones installed so that he could hear the sounds of women farting after eating the food at his restaurants… One wonders whether Berry would have eventually installed surveillance and microphones in the bathrooms at his local Taco Bell so that he could listen to the sounds of women (and possibly also men) spraying diarrhea after eating greasy tacos…

    A class action settlement was eventually reached with 59 women on the complaint. It is estimated that the settlement cost Berry around $1.3 million plus legal fees.

    There are rumors that the police raided Berry’s house after the allegations of the bathroom videos surfaced. Supposedly the police found some nasty home videos at Berry’s residence. One of the videos supposedly shows Berry giving a golden shower to a blonde woman. After soaking her in piss, Berry apparently tells her to open her eyes and mouth, and asks whether his urine is “nice and salty.” The woman supposedly tells Berry that she loves him and then asks him for a kiss. Berry’s response? He said that he wouldn’t kiss her because, “it smells like piss.” During the same scene, Berry also reportedly unleashes a long and very loud fart and then says, “You can smell my fart.” It has been reported that Berry’s fart was as loud as a fog horn on a cruise ship!

    Berry showed that he can receive as well as give in the next scene, as the same woman is supposedly shown taking a dump on Berry’s face.

    V. Conclusion

    Despite his successful music career, Berry has had several brushes with the law and the entire world now knows that he’s a dirty old man with perverted sexual fetishes and apparently gets turned by a woman with a “turtlehead” sticking out. Accordingly, there can be no doubt that Chuck Berry is one washed up celebrity!

    Actually CC’s rant is more about enabling the marriage of gays than the opposite. It is a stupid idea which should have been banned in the constitution. Its all about $$$$ in any event and the fag lobby has been diligent at getting one foot in the door on this issue and then trying to barge in.

    National referendum’s of legal voters on issues like this might be interesting and would likely end this nonsense for a long time. Send them to Gay Island and put Hillary and Sam Ronson in charge!
