The something legend is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and one LP) the most respected American musicians of all time, but none of that could save "the Killer" from his many demons. So as you might expect, Jerry Lee Lewis has an incredibly troubling history.

However, almost all of his marriages could be considered problematic in some way. But Lewis got hitched again before he was 20, this time to a woman named Jane Mitcham. Inthe thenyear-old singer married his seventh and as of press time, last wife, Judith Brown.
