JACKSON, Miss. — Rock ‘n’ roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis has married for a seventh time in Mississippi, and the new bride is his cousin’s ex-wife.

Judith Ann Coghlan Lewis, 62, worked several years as Lewis’ caretaker at his home in Nesbit, Miss., just south of Memphis – a job she said she was sent to do by her then-husband and one of Lewis’ ex-wives, who were brother and sister.

She said she and the 76-year-old Lewis, also known as “The Killer,” never intended to fall in love. It just happened.

She said she married for love, not for money.

“To the people that think there’s never going to be someone out there for them to love, just wait until they’re in their 60s and 70s,” the new Mrs. Lewis told The Associated Press on Friday. “It’s better than ever.”

The Adams County circuit clerk’s office said the marriage license shows the couple was married March 9 in Natchez, Miss. Lewis is famous for top hits like “Great Balls of Fire” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.”

The bride was previously married to one of Lewis’ cousins, Rusty Brown. They divorced in 2010.

Rusty’s older sister, Myra Gale Brown, married Lewis in 1957 when she was 13 and was his third wife. That marriage caused shockwaves for Lewis’ career.

Lewis’ sixth marriage ended in 2004 when he divorced Kerrie McCarver after 20 years together.

Judith Lewis said the wedding was small. The only guests were her sister and husband, and Lewis’ sister and husband.

Jerry Lee Lewis and his new wife both grew up with parents who were sharecroppers and moved often, she said. He’s from the small Louisiana town of Ferriday, which is just across the Mississippi River from Natchez; she’s from the rural Mississippi town of Benoit.

The new Mrs. Lewis, who previously worked as a model and flight attendant, said she and her husband plan to record a gospel album together.

In 2010, Lewis announced a book deal with It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins.

Alberto Rojas, director of publicity for It Books, said Friday that the book deal is still on and that the memoir will be released in 2013.

Woman says Jackie Mason roughed her up

NEW YORK — Police say a woman has reported that she was roughed up by comedian Jackie Mason.

New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Friday that a “female companion” had made the allegations against Mason. The comedian has not been charged. Kelly said the alleged altercation stemmed from a dispute.

Kelly said the NYPD was still trying to sort out the situation on Friday.

There was no immediate response to a message left with Mason’s manager.

The 75-year-old comedian is known for one-man shows on Broadway like “Politically Incorrect.”

Mailer’s son in protest against Village Voice

NEW YORK — The son of Norman Mailer joined a protest Thursday against the Village Voice, the New York City weekly his late father co-founded that’s now accused of running ads peddling underage prostitutes.

John Buffalo Mailer, 33, an actor and writer, marched with about 100 protesters from a park to the Voice’s East Village offices on Cooper Square. They want the weekly’s parent company to shut down its Backpage.com adult classified section, which they say includes ads linked to child sex-trafficking.

“This was once a progressive paper, a people’s paper, and to see it lose its credibility is heartbreaking,” Mailer told The Associated Press. “He would not have approved of this at all.”

One sign read: “Village Voice – Stop Profiting from Sex Trafficking.”

The Phoenix-based Village Voice Media, which operates the paper, said Backpage.com cooperates with law enforcement.
