Rob Stewart is one of the most successful musicians of all times so there’s no secret that he has quite a bit of money. But the singer almost lost a massive chunk of it in a bitter 7-year divorce with his second wife, Rachel Hunter.
The couple had been together for 16 years but their love story wasn’t meant to last. Hunter, a model from New Zealand, was 21 when she married Stewart, who was 24 years older than her.
After their divorce battle ended, Rob was free to marry a lady who stole his heart – another model who is 26 years his junior.
Suspicious love affair
It appears that Stewart has a certain pattern when he chooses his women. Yet, it didn’t end well before, putting the singer at risk of losing some of his fortune. So it’s not that surprising that his children thought that his new wife is just another gold digger.
When talking to Lorraine Kelly in a new interview, the legendary musician revealed that his older kids were very suspicious of his current wife, Penny Lancaster.
They believed that Penny was only after Stewart’s money. He admitted:
It was hard coming up with all the other kids, they didn't know if it was another woman trying to get hold of dad's money… far from it.
However, Lancaster eventually managed to win their hearts and even found a way to keep their “blended family” together. Rod commented:
She won them all over and they all adore her now.
Rod and Penny started dating back in 1999 when he just came out of his second marriage and only wanted to have fun and play around.
Nonetheless, Lancaster managed to charm the singer and they got married in 2007. Later the couple added another 2 additions to their “blended family”, sons Alistair and Aiden.
