Not only is Katie still close to her ex-husband, but she’s totally supportive of him, too — she’s psyched to see Billy’s music appear on Glee!
It’s not typically easy for exes to stay on good terms, but that’s exactly what Katie Lee and former husband Billy Joel have managed to do!
“We’re very good friends,” the 28-year-old chef confided to HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the 11th Annual BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis Charity Event in NYC August 26. Katie realizes that her situation is pretty unique, and tells us, “I think that [getting along with your ex is] something that really just depends on the person.”
Not only does Katie get along well with Billy, 61, but she’s also still supportive of his career! Although she confessed that she’s not a huge fan of Glee, she was more than happy to hear his music would be featured on the hit Fox TV show. “I didn’t know that it was, [but now] I can’t wait to watch it!” she gushed, adding, “I haven’t gotten into Glee yet, but I’d love to start watching it because all of my friends really like it. I’m sure [Billy's music] will be really great. His music is the soundtrack of a lot of people’s lives, so I think it’s a perfect fit for Glee. That’s really exciting!”
We’re pretty shocked that these two have maintained such a good relationship, given the scandal the end of their marriage. The couple separated after 4 1/2 years of marriage last June amidst rumors Katie was cheating with fashion designer Yigal Azrouël – whom she is NOT dating. In fact, Katie reveals that she’s currently single! “I’m not dating right now!” she shared with us.
Instead of men, Katie is focusing on herself. “I’ve just been at the beach all summer,” she explained. “I surf – that’s really been my thing. Just been surfing and writing a book. That’s about it and cooking.”
