Washington, Nov 15 (ANI): Legendary singer Frank Sinatras turbulent love affair with screen stunner Ava Gardner made him attempt suicide twice in almost an year, reveals a new tell-all book about the star.
Written by celebrity author Tom Santopietro, the book, titled Sinatra in Hollywood, details the singers alleged internal struggles.
Sinatra married Gardner in 1951, making her the second of his four wives.
Santopietros book revealed that Sinatra cut his wrists in friend Jimmy Van Heusen’’s New York apartment in 1953, the same year the pair initially split.
“The author reveals that Van Heusen’’s unexpected return saved the singer from bleeding to death, Contactmusic quoted a publishing source as telling the National Enquirer.
The source added: “Sinatra’’s first attempt at suicide had occurred a year earlier after yet another debilitating fight with Ava. He inhaled gas from the kitchen stove in a different friend’’s apartment.
“The book also says Ava had two abortions while they were together - without consulting Frank, saying that a sane lifestyle necessary for raising children just wasn”t possible with him. ”
Sinatra and Gardner were finally divorced in 1957. (ANI)
