Lionel Richie Leaves Brenda Harvey And Weds Former Mistress, Diane Alexander
In 1975, the former Commodores member and solo star married his college sweetheart, Brenda Harvey, and they were supposed to live happily ever after together, forever. Or something like that. Unfortunately though, around the time his fame peaked in the late ’80s, Richie started a relationship during his marriage with Diane Alexander and thought that his wife wouldn’t find out. However, he unfortunately felt the wrath of Brenda when she caught Alexander and her husband getting it on in bed and beat them both like they stole something. Though they tried to make it work, Harvey and Richie divorced, and he married Alexander two years later in 1995. Ironically, they divorced as well in 2004.
