It’s worth noting that when Janie and Van Halen began dating, the singer was still legally married to Valerie Bertinelli, his ex-wife.

Eddie Van Halen married Bertinelli in 1981, and the couple had a son together, but they never got along.

They became so at ease that they fell madly in love, and Eddie proposed to Janie in a private room in Tiffany, Hawaii, while they were on vacation in 2008.

They married the following year, in 2009, in a low-key wedding at Van Halen’s Studio City house in California.

Family and friends gathered the pair at their marriage ceremony. Van Halen’s ex-wife and son, Wolfgang (Wolfie) Van Halen, both attended the event, with Wolfgang serving as best man alongside his father.

Their love story ended in 2020 when Van Halen died after a protracted cancer fight. He hung in there for an extended period after being diagnosed with tongue cancer in 2000.

Cancer grew and ultimately reached his neck and esophagus despite removing a third of his tongue.

Van Halen has stated that he feels his excessive drug, drink, and cigarette usage linked to his illness and that the metal picks he always had in his mouth, mainly where the disease first appeared, must’ve been the cause.

Van Halen also battled lung cancer in addition to throat cancer. Van Halen continued recording songs and performing throughout his illness, never slowing down.

The musician entered rehab in 2007 and eventually became sober. However, cancer finally caught up with him, and his condition dramatically worsened around 72 hours before he died.

Doctors revealed that cancer had progressed to his brain and other organs at his death.

He also suffered pneumonia and myelodysplastic syndrome, a bone marrow condition. Eddie Van Halen, 65 years old, died on October 6, 2020.
