After famously tying the knot with his 13-year-old cousin in 1957, 76-year-old Lewis marries another member of his extended family
Jerry Lee Lewis , famous for being a rock-n-roll trailblazer in the 1950s, a career nearly derailed after he married his 13-year-old cousin (once removed) Myra Gale Brown in 1957, has tied the knot for the seventh time -- and again, to a member of his extended family.
Lewis said "I Do" to Judith Brown on March 9 in Natchez, Mississippi, CNN reports . Brown was married to Lewis' cousin Rusty Brown, a drummer who played with the piano prodigy since they were kids. Rusty is Myra's older brother. Got all that?
Best known for rockabilly hits like "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire," Lewis was portrayed by Dennis Quaid in the 1989 biopic Great Balls of Fire!, which co-starred Winona Ryder as Myra.
