How many honeys does one Godfather need? The answer may surprise you.
A 73-year-old Georgia woman claims in court papers that she married James Brown in 1953 and they never divorced.
Attorney David Bell said Velma Warren Brown claims the late soul singer never served her with divorce papers.
Despite the fact that the AP story paints Velma as a wholly new discovery, this is the actually the first Mrs. Brown, back from outta nowhere (most reports have them divorcing in ’69), and if her claim proves true, she can tussle with the fourth Mrs. Brown, Tomi Raye Hynie, for the remnants of Mr. Brown’s money. ‘Course he’s beyond caring about that now, but it might have made more financial sense for JB to have gone Mormon, especially if he could have squeezed the holy jockey shorts under those tight-ass polyester pantsuits. Or at least set up some kinda Fela Kuti-style compound.
