Annie Lennox Weds Dr. Mitch Besser, Her Third Husband

Annie LennoxThird time’s the charm for singer/songwriter Annie Lennox, 57. She walked down the aisle with her beau, Dr. Mitch Besser, also 57, the founder of Mothers2Mothers, an organization committed to reducing mother-to-child HIV transmission in Africa, on Saturday. Lennox confirmed the good news by posting photos of her “wedding flowers” on her official Facebook page and Twitter account.

According to MailOnline, the ceremony was an intimate affair for 150 guests on a boat on the River Thames in London, England. Celebrity guests included actor Colin Firth and comedian Ruby Wax. Lennox’s two daughters, Lola, 22, and Tali, 19, acted as bridesmaids for their mom.

MailOnline reports that Lennox wore “a distinctive, white, floor-length gown with a lace bolero shrug and a 1920s style headpiece.” Besser, meanwhile, looked sharp in a gray suit and pastel tie.

This is Lennox’s third marriage. She first wed German Hare Krishna devotee Radha Raman in 1984, and then Israeli record producer Uri Fruchtmann in 1988. Fruchtmann is the father of Lennox’s two daughters.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
