Patrick Swayze’s Widow Finds Happiness With New Love
Patrick Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi has discovered happiness again after finding new love with a wealthy jeweler.
Patrick and Lisa had one of the longest marriages in showbiz history, living happily together for 34 years, until actor Patrick tragically passed away after battling pancreatic cancer in 2009.
Three years one from Patrick’s death, 56 year-old Lisa has found romance with wealthy jeweler Albert DePrisco.
According to the National Enquirer, the pair who was introduced by a mutual friend last spring, were instantly attracted to each other. Since they started dated, the pair’s relationship has become increasingly serious.
Lisa recently met Albert’s parents for lunch at a posh restaurant in Florida. His parents are thought to have really taken a shine to Lisa, and have encouraged him to take his relationship with her to the next level.
Despite finding love once again, there is still a place for Patrick in Lisa’s heart, as just last year when opening a new waxwork figure of Patrick as his iconic character Johnny in Dirty Dancing, she revealed she wishes he was still here with her.
Just speaking last week to the Middle Georgia Telegraph she said: “The life I had was destroyed. I’m having to build from the ground up.” This has motivated Lisa to write a book describing this struggle, to help others entitled: ‘Worth Fighting For: Love Loss and Moving Forward.’
