Marital home is just for one
After sharing her jungle hammock with creepy-crawlies
in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, singer Toyah is enjoying the comfort
of her luxury home. The 80s pop guru isn't sharing her bed with anyone
though, because her husband of 16 years lives on the other side of the
It may sound like a bizarre arrangement but it
certainly works for former wild child Toyah, 44, and her hubby, King Crimson
guitarist Robert Fripp, 56. The pair have only ever shared a house
for a few months - and he is frequently away on tour or in Seattle, where
he runs an internet company.
Although their marriage is conducted mainly through
telephone calls, it was love at first sight when they met. Toyah, who had
hits such as It's A Mystery and I Want To Be Free, agreed to marry only
a week after they met.
"Most of it has been a honeymon because we see
so little of each other," she says. "It's an unusual situation but we like
our own company. Last year he was actually home for three months, but we
ended up living in different houses."
Toyah is busy putting the final touches to her
autobiography Living Out Loud, which will be in the shops in September.
