Lyle espoused Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts on June 25, 1993, after only three weeks of dating. They got acquainted while filming The Player. However, their marriage was short-lived and was dissolved in 1995. The main reason for the breakup was that the celebrities dedicated much time to work not to each other. Lovett revealed that he never spent 7 straight days with Roberts while they were married.
In 1999, Lyle got romantically involved with April Kimble and proposed to her in 2003. However, they tied knots only on February 4, 2017. April is her spouse’s tour manager and music producer. So, they spend much time together both at work and at home.
