(12 September 1998 - February 17, 2009)
Couples' estranged wife, Thais Baker, died from br**st cancer on February 17, 2009. They had married in 1998 and the union was childless.
She was diagnosed with br**st cancer a few weeks after they began dating, and they married in 1998. She had two children from a previous marriage, 18-year-old Gigi and Oliver, who just turned 16. Even after they broke up, Couples moved back in with his wife in March 2007, but the attempt at reconciliation lasted only six months.
