‘Finally a keeper’: Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters marries for FIFTH time as he declares ‘I’m so happy’

Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters announced on Thursday that he has wed his fifth wife, Kamilah Chavis at his Bridgehampton estate in New York, which he purchased in 2010 for $16.2 million.

Taking to both Instagram and Twitter to share photos of their special day, Waters, 78, penned: ‘I’m so happy, finally a keeper.’ Kamilah looked beautiful in a white lace wedding dress and beamed as Waters slipped a ring onto her finger.

Roger – whose networth is said to be $310 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth – revealed in a 2018 interview that he met Kamilah a few years prior at one of his gigs, explaining they had  been an item for ‘a few years’ and she ‘worked in transportation’ and ‘drove the car’ that took him to and from his hotel.

The ceremony took place next to the water’s edge and the pair was seen locking lips in one romantic snap shared by Rogers. 

Not much is known about Kamilah, who prefers to stay out of the spotlight, but the pair have been an item for a few years. 

In a 2018 interview with Argentinian outlet Infobae, Roger said: ‘We are not married, but we have been together for a couple of years. I met her at one of my concerts a couple of years ago. She worked in transportation. She was driving the car that was taking me.’

He went on: ‘I was in one place for two weeks and there were many transfers between the hotel and the stadium. My custodian sat in the front with her and they talked, while I stayed in the back. Something about her attracted me.’

Revealing how he first ‘seduced’ Kamilah, Waters added: ‘One day I said ”excuse me, did someone ever tell you that you have beautiful cheekbones?”’

They were pictured together for one of the first times at 2019’s Venice Film Festival.

The couple reportedly got engaged for a fifth time earlier this year, with the news emerging after he was overheard introducing Kamilah as his ‘fiancée’ during a party in the Hamptons. 

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Roger for comment.

Roger’s last wife was Laurie Durning, who he got engaged in 2004 and married in January 2012 before filing for divorce in September 2015. 

Speaking out after tying the knot with Laurie, the star said: ‘I couldn’t be happier. 

We did [the pre-nup]. We’ve been living together for 10 years, I think we sort of know now that we like getting up together in the morning and going to bed at night.’

However, in 2015, Waters’ multi-million divorce proceedings were almost scuttled when his estranged wife Laurie demanded her watch back in court. 

According to PageSix.com, Laurie, now 58, and the Pink Floyd legend got into a row over a $35,000 (£23,478) gold Daytona Rolex. 

Speaking in Manhattan’s Supreme Court at the time, Laurie said: ‘I just want my watch, that’s all’, minutes before the divorce was finalised.

In 2016 Waters and journalist Rula Jebreal struck up a romance shortly after his split from Laurie, however went their separate ways just weeks later.

A source said at the time: ‘It was over as quickly as it began – while they agreed on many issues, they couldn’t find common ground on others. Plus, their families didn’t get along.’ 

Roger and Rula were dubbed the ‘Palestinian power couple’ because they were both outspoken about rights in Palestine.
