Corey Taylor Pours Out His Heart About Girlfriend On Instagram

Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor spent much of the last two years keeping quiet about his personal life, but he's not holding back anymore. In a Tuesday (January 8th) post on Instagram, Taylor gushed about girlfriend Alicia Dove, calling her "everything I ever wanted and more."

Taylor wrote, "She's my best friend. My confidant. My push and pull, my warm kiss and my welcome home. She's everything I ever wanted and more, all rolled up into the most beautiful woman in the world to me . . . I love you so much, my Queen. Here's to many more years together."

Taylor hooked up with Dove, who is a professional dancer and a member of the all-girl dance group Cherry Bombs, after the breakup of his eight-year marriage with Stephanie Luby. Rumors of Taylor's possible romance with Dove gained strength in the fall of 2017, with Taylor going public about it early last year.

Taylor has spoken in the past about knowing when a relationship has gone south: "At the end of the day, it's really about having the strength to do what's right for you in your heart, and not just give in and hope that things could be okay. You have to know yourself enough to be able to turn away from a situation and go, 'You know what? This is gonna hurt for a long time, but I'm gonna be okay. If I stay here, it's gonna be more painful than I could ever imagine.'"

Taylor and Luby were married in November 2009 in Las Vegas, where Taylor still lives. Taylor divorced his first wife Scarlett -- whom he married in March 2004 in a small ceremony in Des Moines, Iowa -- in early 2007. Taylor has two children.
