Dudley Moores fourth wife to describe their ill-fated marriage in memoirFebruary 8th, 2009 - 1:26 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 8 (ANI): Comic actor Dudley Moores fourth and last wife is penning a memoir of their doomed marriage.
Nicole Rothschild, 44, uses her book to describe their turbulent relationship, starting right from the moment she caught his eye in Los Angeles, to their marriage in 1994 and divorce four years later.
The tell-all is due to be published later this year.
According to friends, Rothschilds feelings towards Moore have toned down since he died seven years ago and, having become embroiled in an exchange of insults and accusations during their years together, she wants to show there were also good times.
It will be a honest portrayal of our life together. The good, the bad and the extremely ugly, The Times quoted her, as saying.
Rothschild, who was left with Moores half 5-million pound fortune after his death, said that the explosive book is not being produced for monetary purposes.
Her marriage with the sex thimble, as many American tabloids called the
5ft 21/2in actor, started falling apart within a month, when he started smoking crystal meth-amphetamine, a stimulant also known as crank that creates a tooth-rotting craving for sugar and causes compulsive sexual activity.
Rothschild, a former drug addict, reveals in the book that her actor hubby would demand that she dance semi-naked for hours at his beachside mansion in Marina Del Ray, west Los Angeles. When she could dance no more he would rent prostitutes to carrying on dancing into the daylight hours.
The tome will also reveal how, frustrated and filled with self-loathing, Cuddly Dudley lashed out and tried to choke her a week before their wedding.
In the divorce petition she admitted to punching Moore in the eye, knocking him to the ground and kicking him. This was after he had attacked her in a drug-induced haze.
I love Dud, on a clear day he is a wonderful companion. I have adored him since I was a teenager, but we cannot live together, Rothschild said at the time. (ANI)
