Ex reveals Streisand’s hidden secrets in explosive bookMay 15th, 2009 - 11:15 am ICT by ANI
New York, May 15 (ANI): American singer Barbra Streisand’s ex has revealed that she was once sexually abused by a movie mogul while auditioning for a film.
Streisand’s ex-boyfriend and Hollywood producer Jon Peters is set to lay bare some of the hidden secrets of the 67-year-old singer in his tell-all book, reports New York Post.
In his memoir, ‘Studio Head’, Peters revealed that he “wanted to kill” Ray Stark, producer of “The Way We Were,” when he learned that “Stark, an ogre of male chauvinistic casting-couch sexual entitlement, had molested both Lesley Ann [Warren] and Barbra when they were auditioning for him, and neither had ever really gotten over it.”
He also revealed that Streisand has had affairs with three of her leading men.
Peters claims she told him that she’d had “life-imitates-art affairs with Robert Redford on ‘The Way We Were’ and Ryan O’Neal on ‘What’s Up, Doc?’”
And had just ended one with Kris Kristofferson, then at his hunkiest in “A Star Is Born.” (ANI)
