Wanting to end his 2-year marriage to Nina, Lou filed to have an annulment. The couple has been separated since September, 2005.
The hearing was on 12/15/05 but the judge made no ruling at that time. Lou claimed that Nina absconded with assets valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Nina admitted to transferring nearly $350,000 into her account. Nina said she did so to keep the funds from being seized by Luanna Rawls, one of Lou's daughters.Previous Marriages:
Lou married Lana Jean Rawls in 1961. They had two children. Lou and Lana divorced on October 15, 1973.
In 1989, Lou married Ceci. They divorced in 2003, after years of difficulty in their marriage relationship. Ceci claimed that during their marriage, Lou had three mistresses.
At the time, Rawls told the Arizona Republic, "Don't count me out, brother."
The lung cancer was diagnosed in 2004 and the brain cancer the following May, Rawls's estranged wife, Nina, said during a marriage annulment hearing in December in Arizona. The singer lived in Scottsdale.
The divorce was acrimonious, with Rawls's stating in court papers that he was trying to annul his 2-year marriage and protect hundreds of thousands of dollars of assets that he contended his wife "absconded with," reported the Associated Press.
