He was born a rambling man, which may explain why Gregg Allman, 64, is engaged to be married for the seventh time; this time to 24-year-old named Shannon. The legendary rock singer revealed the news to Piers Morgan on CNN.
When Morgan asked how Shannon felt about becoming Allman’s seventh wife, he answered, “That’s not what she’s becoming. She’s becoming wife Number One. I don’t have a wife, I haven’t had one for years.”
“This time, I am really in love,” added the classic rocker, who says that he was only in love with two of his previous wives, though “they didn’t reciprocate.”
Allman has been married six times and has five children: Son Devon Allman, 39, with ex-wife Shelley Kay Winters; son Elijah Blue Allman, 35, with ex-wife Cher; daughter Delilah Island Allman, 31, with ex-wife Julie Bindas; son Michael Sean Allman, 45, with ex-girlfriend Mary Lynn Green; and daughter Layla Brooklyn Allman, 19, with ex-girlfriend Shelby Blackburn.
In 2010, Allman got a new lease on life when he underwent a successful liver transplant.
