Clive Davis Comes Out As Bisexual In New Memoir
Entertainment

Eighty-year-old Clive Davis — who has been married and divorced twice — has confirmed for the first time he is bisexual!

According to Rolling Stone, Davis writes candidly about his personal life in a five-page section toward the end of his memoir, “The Soundtrack of My Life.”

In the memoir, Davis talks about his long-term relationship with another man during “the era of Studio 54.”

“On this night, after imbibing enough alcohol, I was open to responding to his sexual overtures,” writes Davis, who says he had only been with women before.

After a period of “soul searching and self-analysis.” Davis left his second wife in 1985, and says that he went on to have simultaneous relationships with two women and a man.

Davis writes, “After my second marriage failed, I met a man who was also grounded in music. Having only had loving relationships and sexual intimacy with women, I opened myself up to the possibility that I could have that with a male, and found that I could.”

Davis recalls that coming out initially affected his relationships with one of his sons, Mitchell…and after what he calls “one very trying year,” the two managed to work out their differences.

Since the end of his second marriage in 1985, Davis has been sexually involved with both men and women… but for the past 20 years he’s stuck strictly to dudes!
