Jerry Lee Lewis has married his cousin's ex-wife, CNN reports. This is the seventh marriage for the 76-year-old rocker, who wed Judith Brown on March 9th in Natchez, Mississippi. Brown was once married to Lewis' cousin Rusty Brown.

Lewis is no stranger to unconventional paths to romance. The singer infamously married his cousin, Myra Gale Brown – Rusty's sister – when he was 23 and she was only 13-years-old back in 1958. This marriage, a tabloid sensation at the time, tarnished Lewis' reputation and did some damage to his career.
