Men of Many Women: Paul McCartney and John F. Kennedy
Paul McCartney-- The 'Cute' Beatle
He was THE ladies man. To some, he still is THE ladies man. He could sing, he could act, and he looked like a puppy with a lazy eye. He had two wonderful, (or maybe one wonderful) marraiges that ended sadly, but has had a pretty good love life, as far as our eyes can see.
But beneath the surface lies the womanizer Paul we all knew was there. John Lennon suspects Paul had slept with both of Lennon's wives, and called him a 'sex gladiator'. In the 50s, when the band was becoming increasingly famous, McCartney was rumored to have had sex with 500-600 women. Later, women began giving birth and telling McCartney the child was his. One woman even came up to Paul on the street, yelling "Why don't you recognize me? Why don't you recognize me?" Until McCartney's bodyguards pulled her away from the dazed Paul.
While on tours, women repeatedly tried to get into Paul's room, and some of them succeeding, and ending up having an affair with the young Liverpudlian. Though he was in a wonderful relationship with Jane Asher, McCartney couldn't resist the many temptations and went at it again and again.
After seeing an attractive young girl named Linda Eastman at a nightclub, Paul spent several days with her. In the next few months, Jane Asher announced that her and Paul's engagement had been canceled. Linda was reported pregnant in 1968 and married Paul in 1969. There is no evidence that Paul had ever cheated on Linda. They had a great marriage and were only separated when Paul was in jail in Japan. Their marriage lasted for 29 years, until Linda died of breast cancer.
Paul later married and divorced Heather Mills, and is now dating and possibly engaged to Nancy Shevell. There's no telling if or how many sexual relations he has had other than Heather and Nancy, but for a 68 year old, he sure gets out a lot.
John F. Kennedy-- Our Most Attractive President
Man oh man. Just thinking about this amazingly handsome man gives me the jitters. He was beautiful, he was powerful, he was intellectual, he had an amazing wife, he had amazing kids, but he had a bad relationship with his mother-- which is what started it all.
Jack often said that his mother had never shown any feeling or emotion towards her children, as their father also did. They were brought up to always look powerful and happy; even in their weakest moments. With out the love and emotional support of John's mother, John often felt at lack of love, which resulted in the affairs he had with countless women while Jackie was away.
The Secret Service were the key. Always on guard for Jackie, as soon as they saw her plane touchdown they were leading JFK's woman-of-the-night out quickly. As soon as Jackie left, a long list of women just came in to Jack's room, got it on, and left. Kennedy never required his 'guests' to sign in, just come on. John also had various affairs during his morning pool time, in which Jackie was not allowed in. Only 2 men and Jack's two 'lady friends' came in, and JFK often swam in the nude.
The biggest affair reported with JFK was with the notorious Marilyn Monroe. After Monroe came to a dinner at the White House and gave her number to Jack, he called her and requested she join him at Palm Springs on March 24, and that Jackie wasn't going to be there. Of course Monroe came, but things became worse.
Kennedy, used to one-night stands and quick pick-me-ups, was done with Marilyn after Palm Springs. Monroe, unfortunately, was obsessed with the handsome president. As pills and alcohol had always been a part of her life, they grew to be increasingly key items in surviving the night, with Marilyn. She was torn up about Kennedy. She often said she was scared she had inherited her mothers paranoid schizophrenia. In 1962, Monroe died. Something it was suicide, others thing it was a murder. All that's known is that Jack was very sad when he learned about her death, and no major affairs were reported since.
