Alex Van Halen’s ex-partner, Valeri was a heroin junkie. Furthermore, she also became the reason for many disputes. In an interview, former lead vocalist of London, Nadir D’Priest, revealed that he was involved with Halen’s former spouse while they were going through their messy divorce.
Nadir D’Priest revealed that he saw Valeri in Hollywood and thought her to be the hottest one. The pair hooked up for a while.
