… and was just waiting for John-John to grow up so he could seduce HIM, TOO! According to a new book, The Pink Triangle by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince – ghoulishly due for release on the 20th anniversary of Jackie Kennedy’s death from cancer in 1994 – the First Lady wasn’t content to sit idly by while her husband had countless affairs with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Angie Dickinson. Oh, no. Jackie began a tawdry affair with the recently defected ballet star that lasted for YEARS.
According to the Daily Mail: “While only a few close friends in America allegedly knew about the fling, the couple remained close after JFK’s 1963 assassination.
“They were photographed together in the English countryside in November 1968 and that same year, Paris Match magazine claimed the ballet star had been overheard drunkenly boasting about his conquest.”
The book tells of alleged conversations with Gore Vidal and Truman Capote about the extra-marital affairs of Jackie Kennedy. Porter claims Capote told him about Jackie’s affair with Rudolf Nureyev while Vidal revealed a separate rumor claiming Bobby Kennedy was caught in a phone box with Nureyev ‘kissing each other passionately.”
Capote told Porter at a 1977 dinner in Key West, Florida, that Jackie, Bobby, and her sister Lee Radziwill all competed for Nureyev’s affections.
“I think Rudi systematically plans to seduce every member of my family, even my son when he grows up,” the book says Jackie confessed to Capote.
An outraged Jackie only ended the relationship with Nureyev when she saw the dancer paying too much attention to her son, JFK Jr., writes Porter.
Before his death from AIDS in 1993, Nurevyev boasted to a Danish newspaper: “I am the sexiest man alive. Just ask Lee Radziwill. Just ask Jackie Kennedy. And if you don’t believe me, ask Bobby and John-John Kennedy. Nobody can resist me. Everyone who has gone to bed with me has fallen in love with me,” he added.
Now, of course, EVERYBODY connected to these salacious stories (except Lee Radziwell) is dead, so you can say whatever the hell you want about them and they can’t sue, so it’s probably a bunch of hooey. BUT HOW FUN TO IMAGINE NUREYEV WITH JACKIE AND JOHN-JOHN AND BOBBY AND LEE!
