Is Bob Dylan still married?

Bob is believed to be currently single – although he is notoriously private about his personal life, so he could be in a relationship.

The singer’s first love was Suze Rotolo – who he began dating in the early 60s, before parting ways in 1964.

Speaking about Suze in his book Chronicles: Volume One, Bob said: “She was the most erotic thing I’d ever seen … The air was suddenly filled with banana leaves. We started talking and my head started to spin”.

Suze was also photographed arm-in-arm with Dylan on the cover of his album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.

Who are Bob’s ex-wives?

Bob also adopted Sara’s daughter from a prior marriage, Maria Lownds (later Dylan, born October 21, 1961).

Sara played the role of Clara in Dylan’s film Renaldo and Clara (1978).
