Cash's Wife Upset Over Bench Battle

LATEST: JOHNNY CASH's first wife VIVIAN DISTIN has broken her silence about a battle for a park bench which she claims has made her look like "some kind of witch".

Distin, who was married to the late country legend for 13 years and bore him four daughters, admits she was horrified when she read she had asked for the San Antonio, Texas, riverside bench where Cash carved their names when they were courting.

The former Mrs Cash, who is writing a book about her marriage to 'The Man In Black', insists she was offered the bench by San Antonio officials, who then withdrew their offer.

She says, "I was touched by the city offering to give me the bench if it was found, but it was reported I asked for it and got turned down.

"It's like I'm being made out to be some kind of witch about it. I offered to replace it or make a donation. I don't want for nothing."
