Piers Morgan asked Allman, "How does she feel about becoming wife number seven?"

"That's not what she's becoming. She's becoming wife number one. I don't have a wife, I haven't had one for years," Allman reasoned.

Why is he getting married again? The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explained, "Because this time I'm really in love."

Out of his six marriages, Allman said he's only been in love with two of his six wives -- but "they didn't reciprocate."
