During the early years of their friendship, Michael ‘loved playing the part of gentleman escort, at her beck and call, making sure she was comfortable, making sure any request to a waiter or whomever was taken care of,’ writes the author.
She was high maintenance – but so was he.They made a great pair.
The book says that he ‘enjoyed keeping her high maintenance high’.
Michael showered her with gifts including a 17 carat diamond ring, a diamond bracelet, diamond necklaces and ruby encrusted watches.
For him it was money well spent so he could be ‘part of a classic old Hollywood with its greatest star’.
