‘AMERICAN PIE’ SINGER McLEAN’S NEW SLICE OF LOVE!
ACCUSED WIFE BEATER, 73, WEDS 24-YEAR-OLD IN PARIS
ONE-HIT wonder and accused abuser Don McLean said “bye-bye” to his former wife and “hello” to a brand-new bride — who is nearly 50 years younger than him!
Insiders snitched the 73-year-old “American Pie” singer — who was ditched by ex-wife Patrisha Shnier,
59, after her allegations of cheating, beating and child abuse netted her a
$10 million settlement in 2016 — has eloped with model Paris Dylan, 24, in the City of Lights!
“Don is head over heels for this girl,” a source dished. “It was her idea that they should marry in her namesake city!”
The May-December couple have been dating for more than two years, and insiders said Paris was the culprit in the adultery claims cited in Patrisha’s divorce documents!
As The National ENQUIRER reported, Patrisha charged she put up with 30 years of abuse from Don, who rocketed to stardom with his 1971 chart-topper. Patrisha claimed Don was a brutal tyrant who terrorized their kids, starved family pets — and battered her so badly, she still suffers from PTSD!
In January 2016, she told Camden, Maine, cops, “Don terrorized me for four hours,” and claimed he said, “I want to strangle you so bad.”
Though he first maintained his innocence, Don dodged jail time by pleading guilty to domestic violence and paying a $3,000 fine.
But even his most loyal listeners think his new romance has hit a sour note! “I can’t go see him again,” said a fan. “Engaged to someone young enough to be his granddaughter? I’m so disappointed.”
