Cash's First Bride Dies

Country legend JOHNNY CASH now has both his wives to keep him company in heaven - his first bride VIVIAN LIBERTO DISTIN has died in California.

The 71-year-old, who is the mother of Cash's daughter ROSANNE (corr), lost a lengthy battle with cancer on Tuesday (24MAY05).

Reclusive Liberto Distin met and wed the country star in 1954, while he was serving in the military in San Antonio, Texas. They were married for 12 years and had four daughters.

Last year (04), Liberto Distin fought to get a memento of her romance with Cash, who died in 2003 - a bench into which the Man In Black had carved the words "Johnny Loves Vivian" in 1951.

San Antonio city officials declined her request.

Cash's second wife, JUNE CARTER CASH, died months before the country legend in 2003.
