Freddie Starr - After Operation Yewtree Arrest, Fresh Start For Freddie Starr With Wedding No. 5, Wife No. 4
Despite having been arrested last year in Operation Yewtree, the investigation into Jimmy Savile and enquiries related to him, 70 year old Freddie Starr has got married again. His new wife, 34 year old Sophie Lea, is Starr's fourth wife and she's carrying his 5th child.
Starr was arrested for allegations against him that claimed he had tried to molest a 14 year old girl in Savile's dressing room during the '70s. The initial claim was made on an ITV documentary by a woman named Karin Ward. Starr said he'd never met her, but repealed that statement when footage from the show Clunk Click proved otherwise.
The comedian hasn't been charged with the offence and was released on police bail. He has since claimed to feel like the Yorkshire Ripper in relation to the accusations, adding that his life was "ruined". His new marriage proves that not everyone judges him for the allegations made and that his life isn't ruined. Sophie Lea may be his 4th wife but he has been married 5 times. He married his third wife twice... and also divorced her twice. Perhaps his new wife and new baby can act as a fresh start for him.
