Gossip columns of 1970s said Mick Jagger and David Bowie had an affair. According to Snopes.com, the rumor was started by David's ex-wife Angela Bowie on The Joan Rivers Show. She told Rivers that "I caught him in bed with men several times. In fact, the best time I caught him in bed was with Mick Jagger." She also specified that the men were naked. David and Mick's lawyers quickly denied the story, after which the ex-Mrs. Bowie changed her story saying they hadn't necessarily had sex just because they were naked in bed together.
However, her 1993 memoir has the following passage: ". . .when I walked into that room and found Mick and David together, I felt absolutely dead certain that they'd been screwing. It was so obvious, in fact, that I never even considered the possibility that they hadn't been screwing. . . I didn't have to look around for open jars of K-Y jelly."
