Billy Joel Divorcing His Wife?
The singer was bombarded with rumors she cheated
Katie Lee Joel and Billy Joel are having their fare share of marriage woes in the media this week. Katie has been publicly called a cheating wife with her friend and fashion designer Yigal Azrouel. The May – December romance between Billy, 59, and Katie, 27, began with their marriage in 2004 and friends of the couple say it is as strong as ever – no divorce on the horizon.
“Katie loves Billy. He’s been on a long world tour, but he was home over the holidays through January. Every chance he gets a break, he comes home to be with Katie. She knew that she was marrying a man who would travel a lot and they agreed she would not always have to travel with him. The second he gets home, she’s at the door with a kiss, dinner on the table and so happy to see him. His favorite food is pot roast and you can always guarantee it will be waiting for him whenever he’s back from the road.”
“Katie and Yigal are best friends, but she’s not cheating. She just needs a buddy and Yigal is fun and will go to the usually boring Manhattan parties with her. He makes mundane stuff pleasant, but she’d rather be at home in her sweats any day of the week. Katie is a homebody and people assume because she’s pretty and married to Billy that she must love to party and travel and be wild. She’s the tamest 20-something, ever.”
