Francesca met James Hetfield while she was designing the costumes for the world's most influential American band, Metallica. James at that time was a guitarist, singer, and songwriter for the group. After meeting each other, the spark between them couldn’t be denied which led them to start dating in 1992.

However, their married life wasn't always rainbows and cupcakes. James faced a great deal of suffering due to his anger issues and alcohol addiction. He said in one interview, how grateful he was for his wife sticking by his side even during the darkest times. He also revealed how Francesca kicked him out of the house for being an alcoholic saying only therapy wouldn’t help him.
James being devoted to his family got frightened that he would lose them which eventually led him to quit. James added how fear was an excellent motivator as he had abandonment issues; he has had one family that disintegrated (his parents got divorced, and mother died due to cancer) and he didn’t want another one to fall apart too. James also said how he and Francesca went through more complicated things but only came out stronger. If that wasn't enough, the singer confessed that the moment he met her, James knew she was brought to help him get out of the hell hole.
As of now Francesca and James are living a happy married life with their children.
