Joel Runs Out Of Wedding Cash

Subscribe to Billy Joel alerts

Billy Joel's new bride KATIE LEE had to pay half of the couple's $40 (GBP22.20) marriage license last week (ends01OCT04), because the rocker didn't have enough cash during a visit to Oyster Bay Town Hall, New York.

Embarrassed Joel had to ask his then-fiancee to help him pay for the license in front of town hall staff.

Clerk STEVEN LABRIOLA, who granted the license, remembered working at the town hall two decades ago when Joel popped in to pick up his license to wed ex-wife Christie Brinkley.

Joel and Lee were wed at Joel's Long Island estate yesterday (02OCT04). Guests included Don Henley, Sting and Stevie Wonder.
