In her autobiography, Jones states she was never married to music producer Christopher "Chris" Stanley (who produced her 1989 album "Bulletproof Heart"), although they were in a relationship for a few years, between 1989 and 1991. She has only married once on 24 February 1996, to Atila Altaunbay, a Turkish Muslim, born in 1976, when he was only 20 years old, making him 28 years younger than her, and although they separated after a few years in 2004, they are still legally married.
