Who is bob dylan dating now
Shain mentioned that her famous heartbreak had been Bob Dylan, and asked the woman who hers had been. “‘Oh God, I hope yours wasn’t Bob Dylan,’ I blurt out.
There were very strong rumors online that he divorced a woman called "Darlene Springs" last year - after being secretly married in 2012 to her.
As the three of them took in a movie — Dylan liked to see movies made by or starring people he knew — Shain says he asked her, when the two found themselves alone, what she saw in Ernie. Dylan — who had a home in Trump Tower at the time — was off to a party with his girlfriend, Carole, and several friends, including Shain, when he asked where they were going. The famed songwriter had some unique ideas for movies.Already a global star, Baez launched Dylan's career after their first meeting in 1961 by inviting him to share her stage and tour with her at every opportunity, often scolding her fans who found his nasal singing a poor complement to her soaring soprano tones.She has long been coy about their relationship, referring to him as her "special friend." Dylan has also avoided the topic.But Britta Lee Shain, in her memoir about her time in Dylan’s circle — which included a lengthy seduction by Dylan followed by a brief affair — tells of exactly that, showing the playful, mischievous and womanizing side of the musical icon that the public rarely sees. “For days afterwards, I weigh everything Ernie does,” she writes, “and it all seems pretty stupid to me.” Along the way, Shain got to know more of Dylan’s inner circle, including his first road manager from the ’60s.“Bob swoops up a [large] slice [of cake], circles the table, then plasters the gooey dessert in my face,” writes Shain in “Seeing the Real You at Last.” Later, after she returns fire, Dylan “picks up the champagne bottle and pours it over my head.” Shain, an aspiring screenwriter and lifelong Dylan fanatic, began dating Dylan’s road manager, Ernie, in 1985. ‘Oh, Bob,’ I wind up gushing, ‘I think Ernie’s the smartest guy I’ve ever known.’ “ ‘Smart! He shared with her that in the early days, Dylan “was so broke in New York he sold his body for 20 bucks a pop” and also that he had used heroin. ’” After critics lambasted shows on his 1987 tour, he read one of the reviews while a glowing article about Michael Jackson, featuring a picture of him and his chimp, Bubbles, stared him down from the opposite page.
