Jerry Lee Lewis in seventh marriage

Jerry Lee Lewis has wed for the seventh time in a ceremony this month in Mississippi, according to a newspaper report.

The Natchez Democrat reports that the music legend married Judith Brown, his carer, on March 9.

Ms Brown formerly was married to Lewis' cousin Rusty. 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' last marriage ended in 2004 when he divorced Kerrie McCarver after 20 years together.

The newspaper reports Ms Brown, who is in her early 60s, and Lewis have spent the past three weeks touring Mississippi and Louisiana.

Ms Brown told the newspaper she became Lewis' carer about two years ago.
