In October 1987, while on a tour in America, Jones had a brief relationship with model Katherine Berkery. After a prolonged fight and DNA testing, an American court ruled in 1989 that Jones is the boy's father. He flatly denied paternity for 20 years but finally admitted it in 2008.

I didn't have to play rugby that well, and I didn't have to play cricket that well, because I had this voice.
I've always felt myself as being a serious singer.
First of all, I love singing. I mean, I get out of bed and I sing. I can't help it.
As for the music business itself, the key things have not changed that much. It operates like any business and money still keeps things moving.
I didn't like to be restricted, because when you're in a choir, you have a part to sing and you sing it. I always liked singing on my own.
