CONSERVATIVE commentator Rush Limbaugh, who passed away on February 17, was married four times.
His passing after a battle with lung cancer was announced by wife Kathryn.
Who are Rush Limbaugh's ex-wives?
Limbaugh was previously married to Roxy Maxine McNeely (1977 to 1980), Michelle Sixta (1983 to 1990), and Marta Fitzgerald (1994 to 2004).
The longtime pundit married Kathryn Adams in 2010.
McNeely was a secretary at a radio station in Kansas City, where Limbaugh was also employed, when they met.
She filed for divorce in March of 1980, citing "incompatibility."
She would marry again and has two sons.
Sixta was a college student and usherette at the Kansas City Royals Stadium Club.
She would remarry one year after splitting from Limbaugh.
Fitzgerald was an aerobics instructor from Jacksonville.
She was also editor in chief and publisher of Vent, a magazine for young people.
What did Roxy Maxine McNeely say about Limbaugh?
One of Limbaugh's former wives spoke extensively about the right-wing commentator in Paul Colford's unauthorized biography The Rush Limbaugh Story, which was published in 1993.
"I don't see him married with kids," McNeely said in an excerpt posted by the Seattle Times.
"He devotes so much time and energy to what he does that there's nothing left for anyone else.
"Hindsight is always clearer, but I just don't think he has the energy for a relationship.
"We were just getting started, two people that ended up together.
"Now, looking back, I think he was happier on his own. Relationships are hard for Rush. People are hard."
Limbaugh did not have any children despite being married four times.
McNeely recalled he was a "lot of fun" when they first got together.
"He could talk the entire evening away," she said, according to the Seattle Times.
"He would draw you out, find out what your interests were and then start arguing with you.
"Because I was just back from New York City, there were a lot of New York jokes from him.
"'How could you live there?' Or he would say to other people, 'She has no opinions, she lived in New York.'
"It certainly was ironic when you think that he ended up there himself."
