Other Relationship Information about James Brown and Tomi Rae Hynie:
Much controversy surrounds Hynie's December 2001 "marriage" to James Brown.According to Brown's longtime attorney, Albert "Buddy" Dallas, the marriage between Brown and Hynie was invalid because Hynie was married at that time to Javed Ahmed, a Pakistani whom Hynie claimed married her for a "green card" in an immigration fraud. Although Hynie stated that her marriage to Javed Ahmed was later annulled, the annulment for Hynie's 1997 marriage to Ahmed did not occur until April 2004. In an interview on CNN with Larry King, Hynie produced a 2001 marriage certificate as proof of her marriage to James Brown, but she did not provide King with court records pointing to an annulment of her marriage to him or to Ahmed.

Classic Quotes by James Brown and Tomi Rae Hynie about their relationship:
"Our life together is decidedly unsensational. We're simple people, homebodies who like to work hard and have fun together. We love each other very much. It's not about age, or money, or race, or professional status. We don't choose who we love; we love who we choose. I choose to love him, and we have vowed not to let the press destroy that. James is a good man and a good husband, even if every once in a while it becomes a rough ride. I thank God He has given me the strength to hang on and to make this work." Tomi Rae Hynie
