"Lisa Makes Everything Feel A Bit Safe": Lionel Richie Is Extremely Smitten Over His Much Younger Girlfriend

Date April 19, 2019

Lionel Richie's life has been nothing but the whirlwind. The high-profile star was married two times — to Brenda Harvey (1975-1993) and Diane Alexander (1995-2003). 

In fact, Richie had an affair with Diane Alexander in 1986 while being married to the first wife Brenda. Harvey found out about his mistress in 1988 when she pretended to be "room service." 

Who is his current girlfriend? 

After failed marriages to Brenda Harvey and Diane Alexander, the singer fell for a much younger woman, model, and entrepreneur Lisa Parigi, who is in her thirties.

In an exclusive interview to PEOPLE, Lionel Richie opened up about his highs and lows in love, life challenges, and current romance with Parigi. 

She’s extremely beautiful, but most importantly she’s smart and helps me deal with my crazy world.

The A-list persona was also asked about tying the knot for the third time, but Richie didn't give any solid answers, except for "there is light at the end of the tunnel."
