(Newser) – Jerry Lee Lewis caused a scandal in the late 1950s when he married his 13-year-old cousin. Half-a-century later, the 76-year-old rocker has married his seventh wife, and this time it's more of a family tree brain-teaser. Follow the bouncing ball if you can: His new wife, 62-year-old Judith Brown, is the ex-wife of Lewis' cousin, Rusty, who is the younger brother of the 13-year-old girl, Myra Gale Brown, that Lewis married in 1957. Got that? See CNN and AP for more.
