Sheryl Crow has herself a new boyfriend, Doyle Bramhall II. Nothing is new about their friendship though, the two have been friends for years. Last night, she and Doyle went public with their romance, attending the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s 2011 Spring Ball in New York City.
In a recent interview she did with Prevention Magazine, she revealed that the two act more like friends in front of her sons – Wyatt, who is 3 and Levi James, 2. She explained why below.
“I’ve been in the situation where I’ve been involved with people and their kids, and if the relationship doesn’t work out, it’s heartbreak. So I’m keeping the relationship [with Bramhall] friend-based when we’re around the kids. Luckily, we have a great foundation, having known each other for fifteen years.”
Well, I’m not sure how long they can keep up that facade. No matter how careful they are in front of her children, there undoubtedly is a chance that one of the kids could be witness to a kiss or something more. I do understand what she’s saying though, and we can only assume that the heartbreak she speaks of is related to her split with Lance Armstrong.
So who is this Doyle Bramhall II that she is so enamored with? The 42-year-old wears many hats. He’s a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer. He was previously married to Susannah Melvoin, and I need to point out that I am assuming they are divorced, but I can’t seem to find any information to confirm that. IMDb still lists them as married and they apparently have a child.
Did you catch Sheryl on American Idol this week? Doesn’t she look amazing? It’s hard to believe that she will turn 50 next year. My God, I want to look like her when I reach that milestone! Eh, I’m getting close, actually. Looks like this little thing called love agrees with her!
