Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland has gotten engaged to his current girlfriend, photographer Jamie Wachtel. According to Rolling Stone, the couple have been dating for a year and met while Wachtel was photographing the shoot for a music video from Weiland's Christmas album, The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year. Weiland said, "I am incredibly happy. She is incredibly beautiful in every aspect of the word. Lovely, smart, passionate. And she loves my kids and I love her son. We're getting married in the spring, and our families will be living together . . . she's the greatest thing that's happened to me in a long, long time." The couple plan a spring 2013 wedding.


  • This will be Weiland's third marriage, and he said that before taking Wachtel on a first date he had almost given up on the idea of falling in love again. He explained, "For a long time, I've been very disappointed and to the point where I've been resolved to the fact that possibly it would never happen again and almost accepted that it would be okay. And then I met her."
  • Weiland was married to Janina Casteneda from 1994 to 2000, and model Mary Forsberg from 2000 to 2007. Weiland and Forsberg have two children together and reportedly remain friends.
  • The singer, who toured with STP earlier in the year, will head out on a five-date solo tour later this month, beginning November 25th in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Two of the gigs -- November 26th in New York City and November 28th in Asbury Park, New Jersey -- will include coat drives to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.



  • Do you think the third time will be the charm for Weiland? Why or why not?
  • Should people get married as many times as they want? What do you think is in "appropriate" amount of times to give it a try before just giving up?
  • Do you know anyone who's been married three or more times? What are they like and why did the other marriages fail?
