Which “Fiery” Rocker Is Engaged to His Model Girlfriend — After Only a Few Months of Dating?
Another member of the Kings of Leon has found his queen. Jared Followill, the band's bassist, has proposed to his girlfriend, model Martha Patterson. And get this — they've only been dating a few months! Maybe his sex really is on fire.
Jared, 25, proposed to Martha, 21, on April 11 at his home in Nashville, TN, Just Jared confirmed exclusively. He had previously dated Twilight star Ashley Greene for several months in 2011 and was engaged to model Alisa Torres back in 2009. (Popular guy!) According to a source, Jared had been "wanting to settle down" for a while now with Martha. All together now: "Awww!"
Kings of Leon formed in Nashville in 1999, and Jared is the youngest member of the band that is comprised entirely of Followills (including two who are Jared's brothers and one who's a cousin). The band's big break came in 2008, when they released their platinum-selling album, Only by the Night, which spawned the hit singles "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody."
We wonder if Smokey the Bear has ever recorded a PSA about how "only you can prevent sex on fire." Probably not.
