Roger Waters seems to be as happy as can be with his new wife, Kamilah Chavis.
Roger Waters has been married quite a few times in his life. However, according to the legendary rock star, this time he has finally found a "keeper."
The artist shared a series of photos on Instagram on Oct. 14, 2021, of him and his new bride, Kamilah Chavis, saying that he is "so happy" to have her. Roger is notably very secretive about his personal life, but there are a few sparse details available publicly about how his and Kamilah's love came to be.
In a 2018 interview with Argentinian news site Infobae, Roger explained that he and Kamilah first met in 2016, when he was in California performing at the rock festival Desert Trip. She was working as a driver for the event at the time.
"I was in one place for two weeks and there were many transfers between the hotel and the stadium," he explained to the publication at the time. "My custodian sat in the front with her and they talked, while I stayed in the back. Something about her attracted me."
Roger added, "One day I said, 'Excuse me, did someone ever tell you that you have beautiful cheekbones?' I saw a little reaction, and that was the beginning." The couple has been happily together ever since, deciding to tie the knot officially in October 2021.
Roger and Kamilah were reportedly married at his estate in the tiny hamlet of Bridgehampton, NY.
