Poor David Lee Roth
Poor David Lee Roth was a top story in May/June. Here is the recap: Poor David Lee Roth. He's getting a divorce. The problem is that the Van Halen frontman's rep says he isn't married to the woman divorcing him. The Morning Call had a report about the strange case, here are some, but not all, of the highlights: David Lee Roth has been a puppet, pirate, a poet, a pauper, a pawn and a king, according to his 1986 hit "That's Life." One thing he's never been, according to his publicist, is married to Jo Ann Fonzone of Allentown, Pa. But for the past four years, Fonzone, acting as her own attorney, has been trying to divorce the lead singer of Van Halen in Lehigh County Court. And, because she can't afford it, Lehigh County has waived the filing fee.
Roth is one of 18 defendants Fonzone has targeted in nearly two dozen lawsuits, complaints and appeals in federal and county courts since 1997. Those suits have claimed countless hours from judges, lawyers, clerks and defendants.
Fonzone said she can't produce photos of herself with Roth or a marriage certificate; she says she left them in California when she left Roth in 1993. She also claims in court documents that Roth used her Social Security number to gain a $50 million credit line. - more on this story
