DALLAS (AP) — It was a Valentine's Day wedding for Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens.
Pickens spokesman Jay Rosser said Pickens married Toni Brinker on Friday. The wedding took place at Pickens' ranch in the Texas Panhandle.
Brinker is the widow of Dallas businessman Norman Brinker. He built a worldwide casual dining empire that included Chili's restaurants.
This is the fifth marriage for the 85-year-old Pickens.
The Oklahoma native made much of his fortune in oil drilling. Pickens has traveled the country championing wind power and other alternative energy forms. He's also donated millions of dollars to his alma mater of Oklahoma State University and various other causes.
In 2012, it was announced that Pickens and his fourth wife, Madeleine, were divorcing. The two had married in 2005.
