Lionel vs. Brenda Richie

Married in 1975, the college sweethearts made beautiful music together. While Lionel wrote and performed as a solo artist, Brenda published some of his biggest hits including “We Are the World,” “Truly,” “Dancing on the Ceiling” and even the Commodores hit “(She’s A) Brickhouse.” But in 1988, when Brenda discovered Lionel in a Beverly Hills hotel room with the woman Lionel would later marry and divorce, Diane Alexander, she ended 13 years of marriage kicking a--. The two are still linked, however, through adopted daughter Nicole, who has made Lionel and Brenda grandparents two times over.
