Stars Who Married Their Cousin

5 of 12

Jerry Lee Lewis

"Great Balls of Fire" singer Jerry Lee Lewis nearly destroyed his own career by marrying Myra Gale Brown in December of 1957. Brown, who was just 13 years old at the time of the wedding, was Lewis' first cousin once removed. The marriage was Jerry's third, and the public scandal that erupted as a result forced him into isolation. The pair divorced 13 years later.—XFINITY Entertainment Staff
