Get All the Tea on Terry Lewis's Personal Life & Net Worth

Terry Lewis is most certainly a well-known name in the industry with an unprecedented reputation of the age and has contributed to shaping the music industry in the 80s and 90s.

And with increased fame comes the fixated attention on a celebrity's personal life. However, the musical legend, Terry, has managed to keep most of his family life private, but some details are bound to escape.

Unlike his smooth sailing career, Terry has had his share of turbulent love life in the past. So, who is Terry Lewis married to? Does he have a wife now?

Get to Know His Wife and Children 

Terry Lewis has been married to his current wife, Indira Singh, for quite some time now and has two children with her, Talin and Tierra.

Before Indira, Terry was married to popular R&B singer Karyn White. 

Over the time, although Lewis has maintained a private life (as much as he can), his marriage to Karyn White thrust him into the spotlight when the two called it quits.

Although their relationship ended, their daughter, Ashley, always keeps them bonded with the parenthood. Moreover, in talks with Essence, Terry's former wife mentioned how great a father he is to their daughter.

I saw myself becoming someone I said I would never be. I had put all this energy into my music, but now it was time to be the person that God called me to be. Terry is a great father, and just an incredible human being.
