Billy Joel and Katie Lee in Divorce ‘Shocker’

A rep for singer Billy Joel confirmed to the Daily News just now that he is ending his nearly five-year marriage to wife Katie Lee. There has been speculation for months about the state of her marriage, ever since the 27-year-old chef's close friendship with designer Yigal Azrouël began to raise eyebrows in the fashion world. Katie Lee was the third wife of the 60-year-old Billy (or should we say William? No, we shouldn't). He was previously married to Christie Brinkley. Katie Lee has never been married before, because she was 22 when she met him.

Now here's the important question for commenters: Does she still get to be famous?
