The Lady is a Champ
maureen cox starkey
Born in 1946 in Liverpool, Maureen Cox pursued a career as a hairdresser before marrying Ringo Starr of The Beatles in 1965. They had three children: Zak, Jason, and Lee. The couple divorced in 1975, but remained close. In 1989, Maureen married Isaac Tigrett, founder of The Hard Rock Cafe. They had a daughter, Augusta King, two years prior. Unfortunately, Maureen passed away on December 30, 1994, after fighting a long battle with leukemia. Starr and Tigrett were at her bedside.

This is a tumblr page dedicated to her.

Anonymous wondered,

❝Why did Ringo and Maureen get married?❞<

Hello anon!

Ringo and Maureen were engaged and married quickly because Maureen became pregnant with their first child, Zak. Their wedding is known as a shotgun wedding. Of course, both Ringo and Maureen were thrilled to adjust to this new lifestyle but their marriage had to be hastened before news of Maureen’s pregnancy reached the papers.

Hope this helped! xo
