David Foster Says He Didn’t Leave Yolanda Hadid Over Her Lyme Disease, But For A Reason He’ll Never Tell
70-year-old Canadian music producer and composer David Foster is currently on his fifth wife, 36-year-old Katharine McPhee. 56-year-old Yolanda Hadid is David’s fourth ex-wife, and mother to models Gigi and Bella Hadid. David and Yolanda were together for nine years, and the marriage was documented on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Their dynamic was, how you say… nauseating. Yolanda constantly referred to David as “my king”, and their dinner parties consisted of guests being forced to shut up while David played his cheesy ballads on a Grammy-adorned piano.
They were the perfect couple (well, perfect for each others’ egos), until Yolanda got sick with Lyme disease, and David abruptly left her in 2015. In her memoir, Yolanda said it was because of her illness. He allegedly told her “your sick card is up.” Now, in his new documentary (blegh) David has hit back at his ex’s accusations, claiming he left for an entirely different reason.
If you’re anything like me, once the summer heat starts to die down, you’re ready to break out the Santa hat and Christmas lights because the countdown has begun! And one of the best things about Christmas is CHRISTMAS MUSIC!! Wooo, let me contain myself, because we still have a while before we get there. Now, on the other hand, if you’re anything like Mariah Carey (AKA the giggest Christmas Queen since Lucy from Peanuts), you kind of want to pause before it’s time to do the Charleston in Bedford Falls. And she has no problem letting anyone, including American Idol alum Katharine McPhee, know she ain’t ready to start belting out any of her holiday classics….yet.
Katharine McPhee has made it no secret that she’s leaning all the way into her new life as David Foster’s fifth wife. She’s so invested in her new husband that she recently revealed that she’s added Foster to her last name.
I don’t know if this actually happened but when Katharine McPhee’s great-grandfather walked her down the aisle and saw who was waiting to take her hand, he said “David? Is that you? I thought you perished on Iwo Jima with the rest of E Company!”. Like I said, I don’t know if that actually happened when 35-year-old Katharine married 69-year-old David Foster, but you’ll forgive me for imagining such a scenario based on how often and loudly Katharine defends her right to love her peepaw-aged man.
According to Page Six, she even made a revolutionary battle cry out of their age difference while performing on an LGTBQ+ cruise by telling anyone who doesn’t like it to go fuck themselves.
Last weekend, a ton of famous people and reality stars got hitched. We already know what Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor looked like when they got hitched, thanks to People magazine. Zoe Kravitz must be waiting for an offer from Hipster Brides, because so far all we have are pictures of her rehearsal dinner outfit. In the meantime, we’ve got some pics to satisfy all those expensive wedding dress enthusiasts out there, courtesy of Katharine McPhee and Sophie Turner.
Last week, Katharine McPhee went from “that girl from American Idol” or “that girl from that CBS show about nerds that wasn’t Big Bang Theory” to current fiancée of millionaire music man David Foster. And according to a source that spoke with UsWeekly, if Katharine has her way, she’ll be the fifth Mrs. David Foster before next April.
The source claims that Katharine has been telling her friends that she doesn’t want a long engagement to David, and that they both plan to be married within the next nine months. There probably won’t be too many nerves for Katharine, as she already knows what it’s like see David staring back at her on her wedding day; he played piano at Katharine’s wedding to her first husband Nick Cokas in 2008.
Katharine and David are also hoping to have some kids soon. David already has five daughters from previous relationships, while Katharine has none. It’s probably a good idea to get working on that. The source adds that there will be a prenup signed before they tie the knot. That should reassure skeptics out there who immediately labeled Katharine as a gold digger.
Also reassuring, that same source claiming that both David and Katharine are “very much in love” with each other. David also believes that Katharine is his “true love and muse.” True love, maybe. But muse? Sorry to break it to you, Kat, but you’ve got some stiff muse competition in the form of Rob Lowe’s badass character from St. Elmo’s Fire, who was the inspiration for David Foster-written theme to St. Elmo’s Fire in my mind only.
