Janie and Eddie met when she was hired to be his publicist. The lovely brunette had worked as a stuntwoman and wrestler and was a highly successful publicist in the adult film industry when she met the guitarist.

Three years after they started working together, Eddie and Janie married in his home, with his Alex officiating as an ordained minister, and his son Wolfgang serving as his best man.

Eddie had turned his life around and had revealed that he had been sober since 2008, around the time he started dating Janie.

Eddie had previously been married to actress Valerie Bertinelli, with whom he shared 29-year-old son Wolfgang. The marriage had foundered due to Eddie's struggles with alcoholism and drug abuse.

In 2000, he was diagnosed with tongue cancer, which resulted in surgery that removed a third of his tongue, and was declared cancer-free in 2002.

Eddie had turned his life around and had revealed that he had been sober since 2008, around the time he started dating Janie.

Sadly, Eddie's cancer returned, this time affecting his throat. Janie Van Halen has had to cope with this third devastating loss, this time without her beloved husband's support.
