Here's what to know about Jacklyn Zeman's husbands.

On Sept. 16, 1979, Jacklyn married Murray Kaufman, a popular DJ known as Murray the K. He was incredibly influential from the late '50s until the 1980s, promoting rock 'n' roll music on his radio shows. Murray was a big fan of the Beatles, and during the early days of Beatlemania, he often referred to himself as the "fifth Beatle."

Despite being based in New York City, he moved to the West Coast to be with Jacklyn (who just so happened to be his sixth wife). Unfortunately, their marriage didn't work out, and they divorced in 1981. Murray died of cancer a week after his 60th birthday on Feb. 21, 1982.
