Who would have known that these two men were second cousins?

American TV weather presenter Al Roker is first cousins to Lenny Kravitz’s mother, Roxie Roker.

Roxie is best known for her starring role on CBS’ 1975 hit TV series “The Jeffersons.” Her son went on to become a mainstream funk-rock musician, songwriter, clothing designer, and actor.
