Talking about his 'love at first sight, Taylor said,
"I knew that there was something… I knew that she… It wasn't 'till we really started talking… Okay, let's put it this way: When I saw her, I was knocked out, and I knew that I wanted to pursue her, and it took a little time. I had to gently tell her that I was flirting with her, 'cause she just wasn't getting it. I was, like, 'You realize I'm flirting with you like crazy?' And she was, like, 'Ahhhh…' [But] I knew. Absolutely. And the more we talked, the more we really connected. And then it was… I found that I had about four days before the beginning of a tour — this was in 2008 — so I flew out to L.A. just to see her, and by the time I landed, we both had actually said 'I love you' to each other. And it was on. And we've been together ever since."
Well, the star shared a major event of his personal life via Twitter. He disclosed that he has been separated from Luby for more than 10 months now.
Because ‘people’ want to gossip on my son’s Instagram, I’ll set the record straight, even tho some of you don’t deserve it. I’ve been separated for almost 10 months now. I started dating someone a couple months ago. My FRIENDS have known. Now YOU know. I’ll ask ONCE:— Sticky Baby Franklin (@CoreyTaylorRock) December 28, 2017
Taylor, 44 has a son named Griffin Parker Taylor from his first wife Scarlett Stone and a daughter Angeline Taylor from his previous relationship.
Taylor and Parker married on 11 March 2004 in an intimate ceremony at the Botanical Center in Des Moines, Iowa. The couple divorced earlier in 2007. During his marriage with Scarlett, he was a severe alcohol abuser and even thought of committing suicide for so many times. She helped him get through the hard times, yet they couldn't keep their marriage alive.
Talking about his relationship, he quoted in the November 2008 issue of Revolver magazine saying,
"After I got sober, I realized my relationship wasn't right for me. My wife and I had damaged each other too much."
Scarlett Stone might also have stepped forward in her life but after the divorce, she's remained under the radar.
