Katharine McPhee Defends Her Man, 68-Year-Old David Foster

Katharine McPhee knows the judgment that’s been coming after her for a few months after she announced her engagement to David Foster, who is 34 years older than her.

“Y’all should be worrying more about registering to vote and midterm elections than who’s marrying me,” she tweeted. “Thank you for coming to my TED talk.”

The former American Idol star got engaged to the music mogul while on a trip to Capri, Italy. “He did it at the top of this mountain in Anacapri. Totally dark, only stars. Thankfully he didn’t push me off the cliff. He said it was one or the other. And in the end he spared me,” She’d previously said.

This would be David’s fifth marriage, and her second.
