New York, Oct 11 (IANS) Mickey Rourke’s ex-wife Carre Otis has revealed that the actor threatened to kill himself if she didn’t accept his marriage proposal.

The former couple had a rocky relationship. The actress confessed in her memoir, “Beauty, Disrupted” that she only wed Rourke because she was terrified he would kill himself, reports

In an excerpt, obtained by the New York Post, she wrote: “I left Mickey in Miami (Florida) to pursue his new boxing career … But I wasn’t really surprised to get a call. I gave in. Just like that … On June 25, 1992, a limo picked me up in Los Angeles and drove me north up the coast to Big Sur. He was sitting on the hood of a tricked-out ‘69 Road Runner hot rod.

“‘Otis… I… I don’t know what to say. I love you. I miss you. I need you. I… I want you.’ He was stammering. ‘Marry me, Carre,’ he said.”

“‘Jesus, Mickey. Wait. I haven’t seen you in months!’ I was starting to feel panicked. ‘I need time, some time to think about this.’

“‘No. You answer me now,’ he said firmly. Standing up, he went to the back of the car and opened the trunk. ‘I can’t live without you,’ he said again, pulling out a long sword wrapped in beautiful Japanese cloth. ‘What’s that?’ I asked.

“‘It’s a hara-kiri knife,’ he replied, unwrapping it. Mickey stared into my eyes. ‘Answer me or I will die.’”
