This marks the fifth marriage for Waters. He recently split from actress and director Laurie Durning in 2015 after three years of marriage, as per the reports of Page Six. Waters was first married to Judith Trim from 1968 to 1975, then to Carolyne Christie from 1976 to 1992, followed by Priscilla Phillips from 1993 to 2001, before marrying Laurie Durning in 2012 and separating in 2015.
Roger opened up about his romance with Chavis in a 2018 interview with the Argentinian outlet Infobae, and said at the time that they were not married, but had been together for several years.
“Love is good, obviously. It requires maturing. If you have real love, it will surely last a long time. Because love is about giving, not receiving.”
Waters said he first met Chavis at one of his concerts, where she was working in transportation and driving the car that took him to his show.
“I was in the same place for two weeks and we were being transported between the hotel and the stadium. My security guard would sit with her and they’d talk while I was in the back. I don’t know, something attracted me,” he recalled. “One day I said, ‘Excuse me,’ and she turned around. ‘Did someone ever tell you that you have beautiful cheekbones?’ I saw a small reaction, and that was the beginning.”
