Robert Plant - Robert Plant's Marriage Comment Was Just A Joke
Rocker Robert Plant's publicist has shot down reports suggesting the Led Zeppelin star has wed singer Patty Griffin, insisting he was joking when he told the media the couple "eloped" last year (11).
Plant appeared to confirm rumours of a wedding in an interview published earlier this week (11Jul12) in Britain's The Independent.
He told the newspaper, "I eloped and ran off to Texas. So now I spend half my time there and half here (in the U.K.)."
But Plant's spokeswoman has set the record straight by explaining the rocker was being cheeky when commenting on his love life.
She says, "Robert has not married Patty Griffin. He was just referring to the fact that he's been residing in Texas."
Plant was previously married to Maureen Wilson, the mother of three of his children. The couple divorced in 1983.
