Jerry Lee Lewis and Myra Gale Brown shortly after their wedding in 1957
In 1957, 22-year-old Jerry Lee Lewis married 13-year-old Myra Gale Brown.
Myra Gale Brown was the daughter of J.W. Brown, Lewis’ cousin and the bass player in his band. At the time, she hadn’t realized that there was anything wrong with her relationship with Lewis. Elvis Presley, the biggest rock star in the world, was dating a 14-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu, who would later become his wife.
