    Speaking with Argentinian outlet Infobae, Roger said: ‘We have been together for a couple of years. I met her at one of my concerts a couple of years ago. She worked in transportation. She was driving the car that was taking me.’

    He went on: ‘I was in one place for two weeks and there were many transfers between the hotel and the stadium. My custodian sat in the front with her and they talked, while I stayed in the back. Something about her attracted me.’ 

    Revealing how he first ‘seduced’ Kamilah, Roger added: ‘One day I said ”excuse me, did someone ever tell you that you have beautiful cheekbones?” I saw a little reaction, and that was the beginning.’

    Roger’s last wife was Laurie Durning, who he got engaged in 2004 and married in January 2012 before filing for divorce in September 2015. 

    Speaking out after tying the knot with Laurie, the star said: ‘I couldn’t be happier. 

    We did [the pre-nup]. We’ve been living together for 10 years, I think we sort of know now that we like getting up together in the morning and going to bed at night.’

    However, in 2015, Waters’ multi-million divorce proceedings were almost scuttled when his estranged wife Laurie demanded her watch back in court. 

    According to PageSix.com, Laurie, now 58, and the Pink Floyd legend got into a row over a $35,000 (£23,478) gold Daytona Rolex. 

    Speaking in Manhattan’s Supreme Court at the time, Laurie said: ‘I just want my watch, that’s all’, minutes before the divorce was finalised.

    In 2016 Waters and journalist Rula Jebreal struck up a romance shortly after his split from Laurie, however went their separate ways just weeks later.

    A source said at the time: ‘It was over as quickly as it began – while they agreed on many issues, they couldn’t find common ground on others. Plus, their families didn’t get along.’ 

    Roger and Rula were dubbed the ‘Palestinian power couple’ because they were both outspoken about rights in Palestine.
