Daryl Hall’s Ex Wife Passed Away Less than Four Years after Filing for Divorce
In January 2019, Amanda Aspinall, the former wife of R&B and soul singer Daryl Hall, passed away at the age of 61.
According to Dailymail, she was found dead at her home in Kensington. Her assistant was the first to discover her collapsing next to her bath.
Her death shocked her family, especially her ex-husband Hall and her two children from a previous relationship.
After the inquest, her son, Orson, told MyLondon, “My mother suffered very badly for more than 10 years with chronic Lyme disease, a disease which is very little known about in the UK, which played a large hand in the decline of her health.”
Daryl Hall’s Former Wife Died Four Years after Divorce
When Hall’s former wife died in 2019, reportedly due to a heart attack, the singer and Aspinall had been divorced for close to four years.
The former couple had tied the knot in 2009.
During their time together as married couples, they lived briefly in London’s Chelsea. They also seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
In an interview in 2012, he boasted about his ex-wife’s social connections by stating that she was related to the then Chancellor of the Exchequer.
“I travel in unusual circles,” Hall said at that time. “George Osborne and his wife, Frances, are my cousins. But I’m not gonna talk politics with George.”

And why wouldn’t he boast? She deserved it, as she was the daughter of British gambling mogul John Aspinall.
The pair also lived together with Aspinall’s two children, March and Orson, whom she had welcomed with her first husband, Cosmo Fry.
His ex’s son and daughter, who are now grown-up, were so close to Hall that Aspinall’s daughter, March, joined him in performing backing vocals on two songs on his 2011 solo album, Laughing Down Crying.
But Hall and Aspinall’s marriage didn’t last long.
In August 2015, when the couple lived in Connecticut, Aspinall filed for divorce from Hall, reportedly claiming that the marriage had “irretrievably broken down” in court documents.
Daryl Hall’s Divorce with First Wife
Before marrying Aspinall, Hall was previously married to Bryna Lublin.
The former couple walked down the aisle in 1969, but the marriage ended just a few years later, in 1972. The couple had no children.
At present, Lublin is reportedly serving as the correspondent for the Associated Press.
Daryl Hall Shares a Son with a Minnesota Woman
It turns out Hall has a biological son, Darren Hall, whom he shares with Andrea Zabloski of Duluth.
He had the child with her after they met in 1983 when Hall was in town for a concert. After the birth of his child, the pair were not on talking terms.
In 1998, he fought a legal battle against his baby mama so that he did not have to pay more than the maximum child support.
In the court, Hall acknowledged paternity and reportedly offered to pay Zabloski $1,000 a month.
However, Zabloski sought ten times more than that amount while also proposing a budget that included the purchase of a $9,000 piano for the child.
