I had new clue the guy took marriage advice from Larry King and Liz Taylor.
I'll let wikipedia figure out the rest.
Folds has been married four times, and divorced three times. From 1987 to 1992, he was married to Anna Goodman, who co-wrote the lyrics to several of his songs, including "Alice Childress", "The Last Polka", "Smoke" and "Kate" from Whatever and Ever Amen, and "Lullabye".
Folds met his second wife, Kate Rosen, in December 1995, and married her in December 1996. She was a lighting operator for Ben Folds Five while they toured. They divorced in December 1997.
He married his third wife, Australian photographer Frally Hynes, in May 1999. The former couple had two children, Louis Frances and Gracie Scott. Hynes has recorded several of Folds's music videos, including "Still Fighting It" which also starred the couple's son Louis, and directed the video for "Landed." Hynes sang back-up vocals on the song "Gone" from Rockin' the Suburbs, contributed to "Root to This" on Fear of Pop: Volume 1, and can be heard on the end of the track "Dog" on 2003's Speed Graphic (EP). She is also featured on the cover to Ben Folds' EP Super D, released in 2004. They divorced in April of 2007.
He looks like Charles Nelson Reilly in that photo.
