David Foster Asks Katherine McPhee To Be His Fifth Wife
Katharine McPhee definitely has a thing for older men.
Katharine McPhee, 34, announced her engagement to her 68-year-old boyfriend David Foster Tuesday. This will be the American Idol alum’s second marriage while Yolanda Hadid’s ex heads into his fifth marriage.
The music producer asked for her hand in marriage while vacationing in Italy. McPhee revealed the details to Just Jared’s Jared Eng in a text message exchange. He popped the question at the top of a mountain in Anacapri under the stars.
The couple made their first official appearance together in March 2017 at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in Los Angeles, but they denied the romance until they both attended the Met Gala this past May together. The two have known each other for years since the record producer mentored contestants on American Idol when the singer and actress was a contestant. In 2008 when McPhee married her first husband Nick Cokas, Foster accompanied McPhee on piano as she sang, Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable” at her reception.
McPhee’s marriage to Nick Cokas, 53, ended in 2016 after eight years of marriage. Foster has been hitched four times to B.J. Cook, Rebecca Dyer, Bruce Jenner’s ex-wife Linda Thompson and his most recent ex from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Hadid.
There’s no doubt the 34-year-old has a type – older men.
Let’s hope the fifth time is the charm.
