Gregg Allman's math when it comes to marriages is a little fuzzy. The Allman Brothers Band singer, 64, is engaged to marry for the seventh time to a woman 40 years his junior!

When Gregg Allman walks down the aisle with his 24-year-old fiancée, records insist she will be the singer's seventh wife. All facts and details aside, he doesn't see it that way. Speaking during an interview on Piers Morgan Tonight, Greg Allman claimed his fiancée is not "wife number seven."

When questioned about why he's willing to enter a marriage once again, the six-time divorcée said uncomfortably "this time I am really in love."
