June 11, 1958

JUNE11On this day in 1958, Jerry Lee Lewis discovered that his marriage scandal involving his 13-year-old cousin had made it’s way back to the Untied States.

He made the discovery when he was heckled while performing in New York, with phrases such as “cradle robber” and “sugar daddy”.

He was ultimately booed off of the stage and his scheduled second show was canceled due to poor ticket sales.

Lewis’ career was ruined for some time after that.
