Don McLean rose to fame when he first sang about the end of rock ‘n’ roll’s innocence in his 1971 hit ‘American Pie.’ The 72-year-old singer/songwriter spoke with Fox News about his latest release and why ‘American Pie’ continues to resonate with listeners today.
Yet Paris Dylan, 25, is enjoying a fabulous lifestyle with her boyfriend — who is 48 years her senior — with the pair blowing $303,000 on holidays in the past year.
The pair met when Dylan, who previously worked as a Playboy model, was hired to manage 73-year-old McLean’s social media accounts in early 2016, confirming their relationship months later with a cozy selfie.
It came just months after McLean’s finalized his divorce to his second wife, Patrisha Shnier, 59, who had accused McLean of multiple incidents of “rage and controlling behavior” during their marriage.
Talking about Dylan in a recent interview, McLean said: “She was a big fan of mine and I fell for her.”

Now, the couple travels the world together — dining at exclusive restaurants, holidaying in destinations like Hawaii and splashing the cash on five-star hotels, high-end restaurants and designer clothes.
The pair travel first class or on private jets whenever they go away.
It’s estimated that this year their extensive travel has cost over $303,000.
This includes $7,300-a-pop hotels and the lease of private jets, which cost a minimum of $18,200.
“I have a great girlfriend and she travels everywhere with me,” McLean said last month.
