Lionel is fantastic! Love all of his music, especially his work with The Commodores!

I think that he and Brenda Richie were the perfect couple. I was so sad when they divorced and I think it affected their daughter a lot as she stated on Oprah. People should work things our and not break up. Look at what his second wife did with him. He should have stayed with his first wife.

pretty little Jeanie De`Ann Sullivan is soo sweet, Lionel should grab her!She is this tiny blond model,and is just the nicest person. They would make a good couple. He needs a good person who cares about the same things as him,and I know Jeanie is really into helping others and animals.She`s not into all that exess that his last girl was into.

DanielFeb 14, 2010

I heard Jeanie De`Ann Sullivan dated Lionel Richie too. She is really pretty! Looks alot like Brigitte Bardot.
