David Foster’s Relationship With Much-Younger Katharine McPhee Drew Scorn
David Foster divorced his fourth wife, RHOBH alum Yolanda Hadid, in 2015. She claims he ended their marriage due to her battle with Lyme disease. He denies this, but refuses to reveal the true reason for the split.
In 2017, the famous musician began dating American Idol alum Katharine McPhee. The 35-year age difference raised many eyebrows. Especially given that they first met back in 2006 when she was a contestant on the singing competition.
While romance didn’t blossom until eleven years later, their romance drew jokes and criticism. In 2019, Katharine McPhee became David’s fifth wife and took on his last name.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the couple took to Instagram Live almost nightly to perform concerts for legions of their fans.

In July, streaming giant Netflix released a documentary about David Foster’s career. However, in interviews to promote the doc, he got a lot of questions about his marriage to Yolanda. At one point in the documentary, he railed against fans who only know him from RHOBH and reality TV.
