Married country singer Lee Greenwood has failed to put a stop to reports he's having an affair with an ex-girlfriend 24 years his junior, by refusing to confirm or deny the allegations.
The 66 year old has been married to former beauty queen Kimberly Payne, 42, for 17 years and the couple has two sons.
But, according to the National Enquirer, Greenwood has been cheating on his fourth wife with a businesswoman from Tennessee.
A source tells the tabloid, "The woman and Lee first dated a long time ago, but they've recently rekindled their relationship after she went through a divorce.
"She bumped into Lee about five months ago at an airport, and they swapped numbers. Lee's been meeting her at hotels around Nashville as often as once a week. He's told the woman that he has no plans to leave his wife, and she's fine with that."
A representative for Greenwood, famous for his hit song God Bless the U.S.A., confirms the mystery redhead is an "old friend" and suggests she is simply an acquaintance - but has stopped short of denying the claims altogether.
His spokesman Kirt Webster says, "Lee is a devoted husband and father who meets with fans, business associates and potential promotional partners often."
