In one of her three autobiographies, Joan tells how she was drugged and raped at the age of 17 when she was still a virgin and explains how her guilt led her to marry the perpetrator.
She revealed, “I was raped when I was seventeen.” At the time, the actress had just signed to RANK Film Studios and was already a candidate for success.
Joan then describes how she was on a date with Irish actor Maxwell when he went to take a shower. He gave her rum and coke to drink and some books to read. ‘The books were pornographic,’ she recalled, ‘I had never seen them. hardcore porn…
“Next thing I knew, I was out flat on the couch in the living room and he was raping me. And what he gave me was a drug. He drugged my drink.”
It was called in those days Mickey Finn. Which I think would be Rohypnol today. I felt terrible. I… that I did this thing.
In her naivety, young Joan Collins felt terrible guilt. It wasn’t my fault but I didn’t know, I went out with it. And maybe I shouldn’t have gone out with him. He was much older than me, and he was a famous star.
And anyway, the bottom line is, he called me, and I went out with him again. And after I went out with him for a few months, he asked me to marry him.
And I thought, “Well, I’m better because you know, he took my virginity.” I really hated him, but was so full of guilt, that he did this thing to me.
Joan filed for divorce from Maxwell and enjoyed the Hollywood lifestyle, partying with Marilyn Monroe at Gene Kelly’s home.

In 1963, she married actor, singer, and songwriter Anthony Newley, with whom she has two children, Tara, 59, and Alexander, 58, also known as Sasha.
They divorced in 1971 and Anthony died of cancer at the age of 67 in 1999.
In 2017, Alexander caused a fight when he claimed his father was a fan of horror.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, he said: ‘He was a paedophile. My father was drawn to youth. It was believed that Innocence was an aphrodisiac. This was his sexual orientation and it’s very dangerous and devastating.
Joanne was shocked and refuted the allegations at the time, saying, ‘I think Sasha is very naive and doesn’t really know what that word (pedophilia) means, because what Tony admitted was, that he liked young women, young women of 17, 18 and 19 years …
They divorced in 1971 and Anthony died of cancer at the age of 67 in 1999.
They are by no means children. I wouldn’t have married someone like that in a million years. Conclusively, I can say that it is not true, that I have never seen any of this kind of behavior from Anthony. . “.
He also wrote a book about growing up with super-parents, called The Unaccompanied Minor, in which he said he watched sex regularly.
He wrote, “It was Hollywood and all the people were beautiful and glamorous, moving in and out of parties.” My parents put sex front and center. He revealed it all to me—that was completely inappropriate.” “.
Sacha then claimed that the reason for his parents’ divorce was because Anthony’s 1969 X-rated musical Can Heironymus Merkin Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness? It was a “confession to pedophilia.
My mother destroyed that movie, he said: It was the end of their marriage. My father was a great, flawed talent. He was a classic sex addict.
Sasha’s sister Tara also refuted the allegations, saying, “I am shocked by my brother’s comments. On my end, I don’t recognize the guy he’s describing. I had an incredibly close relationship with my father and am deeply upset by these false claims.

They married in 1985, but according to Collins, Peter became increasingly controlling, with Joan saying: ‘None of my friends liked him but I stupidly didn’t listen to him… Big mistake.
Meanwhile, Joan said Holm’s demeanor had changed rapidly after the wedding, as if he no longer needed to pretend to love her. He became bossy and dogmatic, criticizing Joan in public, mocking her appearance, and making lewd remarks about her age.
The couple split in 1987. He claimed in court to be given £35,000 monthly living expenses – £60,000 in today’s terms – as well as the Los Angeles home and their villa in the south of France.
