Bessette and Me, Bergin said he had a secret affair with Bessette
less than a year after her fairy-tale wedding into the Kennedy
"We were very close," he said in an interview with A and E
television. "It seemed like there was no one else in my life, which
there wasn't. And there was no one else in her life. It seemed like
it was old times. Like were together again. It was very surreal."
They met in 1992 in a New York bar, and had dated for several
years before her September 1996 wedding to Kennedy, the book says.
They rekindled their relationship over several months in 1997,
Kennedy, Bessett, and her sister Lauren were killed in a small
plane crash near Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts on July 16, 1999.
During their marriage, the couple was a fixture on the gossip

A book published last year said their marriage was foundering
amid drug use and suspicions of adultery when the couple died. – Sapa-AFP
