Iggy Pop has one son, Eric Benson, but was never married to Eric's mother. Actually, Iggy has mentioned in at least one interview that his son's mother is a lesbian.
Iggy has been married twice in the past. He was married very briefly (for about six weeks) when he was 21 to a girl named Wendy. Things did not work out and they managed to get the marriage annulled.
In 1985, Iggy married Suchi Asano, a woman he met at a concert in Japan. The couple made a cameo in the movie "Sid and Nancy" as a pair of hotel guests. Suchi is the author of a novel called "In Broken Wigwag" about a young Japanese woman living in New York City.
Iggy and Suchi divorced in 1999. Last I heard Iggy was still living in Miami with a woman named Nina, his girlfriend of several years.
I probably know more about the life of Iggy Pop than is healthy. :)
Read Iggy's memoir "I Need More" for more on his relationship with Wendy.
