However, Lynn’s original DOB is greatly open to question.
Nevertheless, Lynn’s ex-husband, Neil in his book, Tattoos And Tequila: To Hell And Back With One Of The Rock’s Most Notorious Frontman, writes, Beth was a rich girl from San Diego.

I guess what I’m saying is that Beth was like a groupie who was cut above all the other groupies… the kind who becomes a rock n roll wife.

From that night on, Neil says Beth was his girlfriend.

Lynn and Neil first lived together for about a month or two in the former’s apartment in Hollywood. After that, they moved to Redondo, California. During their stay in Redondo, the couple also did a lot of drugs and involved themselves in nonstop parties.
Beth And Vince Neil’s Wedding Was Big
Soon came the year 1983 and the former couple married each other. Neil and Beth’s wedding ceremony on January 3, 1983, was a big deal at the Crystal Cathedral in Orange County California. The glam metal artist however says he doesn’t even remember what time of the year it was. He nevertheless agrees that the marriage ceremony was a whole fairytale event. All the boys from Mötley Crüe were there.
It was the same year when Vince Neil was discovered while he was performing with his band Rock Candy. That year, Neil joined Motley Crue and the band also released its first album Too Fast For Love.

The Reason Behind Beth And Vince Neil’s Separation
While people and sources claim it was Vince’s habit of drugs and sleeping with other women that led to the breakage of his and Beth’s marriage, the Tattoos And Tequila singer argues that it primarily had to do with Lynn’s obsession with cleanliness.
As per Vince, sometime after the birth of his and Beth’s daughter, the baby mama developed a germ phobia. She apparently had also developed an obsessive hand-washing attitude. In fact, Vince says at certain points she became so neurotic that Lynn didn’t even allow his band members or his friends to enter their house.
It was f***ing crazy. Stuff like that. I couldn’t take it. I’d rather be getting germs at the studio.
writes the Live At The Whiskey singer in his book.
Things ended for Vince and Beth some months after the Hallwood-born singer had come out of his 18 days jail sentence in 1985. At the time their daughter Elizabeth was about to be three years old.

Where Is Beth Lynn Now; Is She Married; Who Is Her Husband?
Ever since her divorce from the Crawl singer Vince, the blonde Californian, Beth has somewhat made herself a complete nonentity especially when it comes to a media appearance. Lynn wherefore, in the last few decades is anything but a person who is still around. Some public logbooks nonetheless imply that Lynn could be residing in her home state but rather in San Rafael than her native San Diego.
A likewise ambiguity also persists when it comes to her marital lowdown. While after divorcing Beth, Vince would have relationships (marital and others) with a handful of women, whether or not Lynn involved herself in such romps, post-divorce, is still a mystery.
What’s more, it seems as though Lynn isn’t really in touch with her daughter, Elizabeth these days, either. As such, her daughter, whom she had with Neil, despite remaining active on social media, has hardly ever mentioned her Californian mother. On the other hand, she frequently appears alongside her rockstar father on such forums.
In the meantime, it is also a tough one to conclude who Beth’s current partner or husband really is or where is she at for that matter.
