Last week, Joel and third wife, Katie Lee, publicly called it quits after five years of marriage and 32 years age difference. “I was the first person that he came to [with the news],” says Alexa Ray to Usmagazine.com. . “You can’t just trust everybody, and I like knowing that my father can talk to me in the same way that I come to him. I’m just supporting him right now.”
Meanwhile Katie, has been hitting the town with fashion designer Yigal Azrouel.
But apparently Azrouel didn’t cause the break-up.
“This decision is a result of much thoughtful consideration. Billy and Katie remain caring friends with admiration and respect for each other,” says a source. “Everything is very amicable and it was just a growing apart.”
More like a growing up as Katie was just 23 when she wed the then 55-year-old Joel.
Better luck next time!
