Underwear model claims affair with JFK jr's wife

March 30, 2004

NEW YORK — Michael Bergin, a Calvin Klein underwear model who starred in the TV series Baywatch, claimed in a book to be released Tuesday that he had an affair with the wife of John F Kennedy Jr.

In The Other Man -- A Love Story: John F Kennedy, Carolyn Bessette and Me, Bergin said he had a secret affair with Bessette less than a year after her fairy-tale wedding into the Kennedy clan.

"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, Bergin said.

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 pages of US magazines.

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