The great Brian Wilson’s wife, Melinda Ledbetter, has passed away. He called her his savior for bringing him back from his mental health issues. They were married 28 years and adopted five children. She gave him Love and Mercy.
Wilson expressed his gratitude for Ledbetter’s support throughout their nearly three-decade marriage. The couple married in 1995. Ledbetter, a talent manager and former model, also served as Wilson’s manager.
“Melinda was more than my wife. She was my savior,” Wilson added. “She gave me the emotional security I needed to have a career. She encouraged me to make the music that was closest to my heart. She was my anchor. She was everything for us.”
