Eddie Vedder may have just proposed to longtime girlfriend Jill McCormick, but he's walked down the aisle once before. The Pearl Jam lead singer was wed to writer and singer Beth Liebling in 1994, before divorcing in 2000.
Beth Liebling and Eddie Vedder in happier times. The two's relationship always seemed rocky. In a 1994 interview with the LA Times, Vedder mused, "I think I'm probably a very difficult person to deal with. Things never seem to settle down and be normal, and I think that Beth has to deal with a lot. I don't want to get into our personal relations. But at times there is a tension... We are all selfish at heart, I guess. But I just know that without her, I'd be a kite without a string, a nothing man."
Liebling now lives in Chicago, Maui, and Rome, where she paints, writes, and works on her music.
