Former Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry was married to 29-year-old publicist Amanda Sheppard earlier this month in a private ceremony at the exclusive Amanyara resort on the Caribbean island of Turks & Caicos, it has been revealed.
Ferry, 66, married Sheppard, some 37 years his junior, after she had briefly dated the singer's son, Isaac, now 26. Sheppard moved in with the elder Ferry two years ago, after breaking off the relationship with his son.
It is the second marriage for Ferry, who divorced his first wife Lucy Henmore, with whom he has four sons, in 2003, after twenty-one years of marriage. He once dated former model Jerry Hall, who later left him for Rolling Stone frontman Mick Jagger.
Ferry was awarded the Commander of the British Empire (CBE) from Queen Elizabeth in December.
