“We just got married by an angel.”
Jennifer after the marriage,
“As we were filling out the paperwork, George asked the clerk how much will the cost of the paperwork be and she replied $45. I then asked her, ‘How much does it cost to get divorced?’ She replied, sternly, ‘We don’t do divorces here.’ Bureaucrats have no sense of humor.”

“We went off to Little Italy, which was close by, and [our dear friend and witness Anya Lukianov] took us for a fabulous Italian meal.”
Affair and Proposal
The couple met via their mutual friend. Prior, ABC actress, Bassey met George, she was married to playwright and screenwriter Luther Davis for three decades. But unfortunately, Luther expired in the year 2008. George also had a similar background as he was also married but lost his wife due to cancer.
“I never dreamed when I met George it would turn into this — that we would [develop] feelings for one another. I thought I had 30 great years with someone else, and maybe I won’t meet anybody again, and that’s okay. But it just happened.”
It is said when you meet the right person, you know it. It was very comfortable and easy to talk to and share things from the day they met. According to Bassey,
“When you’re supposed to be with a person, it’s very natural. And from the first minute we met, it was very comfortable. It’s almost like a past life experience — we’ve been together before and this was supposed to be happening.”
The lovebirds spent most of their time in New York watching movies, exercising, meditating, and spending time with friends. They also used to travel and holiday in places like Ireland, London, France, Australia, New Zealand, Florida, and Los Angeles.
