Jesco White just isn't cut out for city living.

The man who soared from an obscure mountain dancer in southern West Virginia in 1991 to cult stardom after being profiled in a public television documentary has returned to his native Boone County.

White, who is also known as the Dancing Outlaw, had spent the past four months living with his wife in an apartment in Charleston. Norma Jean White has diabetes, heart disease and emphysema and needs to be near medical facilities.

She says her husband wanted to go back to his "wild world," so she let him go.

But she says the couple who met on Christmas Eve in 1974 has no plans to divorce.

Her husband has decided to rent an apartment in Madison and she's content to leave it at that.
