Sting, originally named Gordon Sumner and born on October 2, 1951, in Wallsend, England, is a celebrated English musician who first gained fame as the lead vocalist of The Police, a band he co-founded with drummer Stewart Copeland in 1977, later joined by guitarist Henri Padovani.


Despite initial struggles in England, the band found success in America, captivating audiences with their unique blend of reggae-infused music. Following the band’s hiatus in 1984, Sting embarked on a successful solo career, releasing his debut album “The Dream Of The Blue Turtles” in 1985 and delivering hits like “Nothing Like the Sun,” “Englishman In New York,” and “Fragile.”

Sting’s personal life has been just as newsworthy as his career. After a seven-year marriage to actress Frances Tomelty, which produced two children, Joe and Fuschia Sumner, Sting’s relationship ended following his affair with actress Trudie Styler.

Styler, who became pregnant in 1983, openly discussed the affair in a 2002 interview, acknowledging the complexity of their relationship’s beginnings. Despite initial public perception challenges, the couple welcomed their first child, Mickey Sumner, in 1984, followed by three more children: Eliot, Jake, and Giacomo Sumner.

Sting and Trudie solidified their bond by marrying in August 1992, and they have been together for over three decades. In a February 2020 interview, Sting attributed their lasting relationship to mutual respect, friendship, and enjoyment of each other’s company, emphasizing the importance of both love and like in their partnership.




Trudie Styler has faced challenges of her own, notably a severe accident at the age of two that left her face scarred, leading to bullying and self-esteem issues during her childhood. However, her acting career helped her regain confidence, and she has since become an accomplished director.

Despite the scars, which have been minimized through collagen treatments, Trudie has grown to empathize with others who have faced humiliation.

The couple’s relationship remains strong, with Sting expressing admiration for Trudie, calling her his “main go-to person” and the most impressive person he’s met. Trudie, in turn, values Sting’s support and independence.

Together, they balance their time between the UK and the US, enjoying their role as grandparents and maintaining a normal family life, encouraging open expression within their household.
