    Default Andy Gibb [Late singer/composer/part-time actor-presenter]

    I was a bit surprised there wasn't a thread on Andy Gibb yet, since quite a few board members thought he was cute and had him as one of their first teen crushes. So, here goes:

    Vital Stats and trivia:
    Born: March 5, 1958
    Died: March 10, 1988 (Myocarditis)
    Height: 5'6" (barely)
    Hair: Brown (often dyed dirty blond)
    Eyes: Brown
    Trademarks: freckles, with big brother Barry the only left-handed Gibb, teeny tiny sex symbol to many teenagers.

    ^^I was thinking the same. I didn't realize he was so wee.


    ETA: Unbeknownst to his fans, Andy had a well kept secret - a wife and little girl back in Australia.

    He was a cutie. So sad he went so young. I wonder if Victoria Principal didn't break his heart if he would still be here.

    Aw. I have a soft spot in my heart for him. He was one of my heart throbs.

    Nah, nothing secret about it. He talked about it in several interviews and his ex Kim sought publicity more than once when their daughter Peta was an infant (rightfully so: he only saw the girl once and I believe he didn't support them financially) and later after his death. Barry is rumored to have made an arrangement (financial) quite a few years after Andy's death. The Gibb family failed terribly in that department.







    Andy married at 18, separated from Kim before Peta was born and divorced at 19.
    Peta grew up as Peta J. Reeder-Gibb and breeds Staffordshire Bull Terriers and judges dog shows in New South Wales, Australia.

    Sad unrelated detail: Andy's dad, Hugh, died of a broken heart on Andy's birthday in 1992, 5 days before the 4th anniversary of Andy's passing.

    His is such a sad story. He was way out of his comfort zone.

    If I am remembering this correctly, Kim only requested that the Gibb's take care of Peta's education. Which the brothers did.

    She has always claimed it was the drugs he was on that ruined the relationship. But I'm sure I either heard or read somewhere that his brothers told her NOT to come to the funeral...

    ^^^ That's the same that I've heard/read, Bitter. Victoria allegedly told him to choose between her and the drugs, and clearly, he chose the drugs. I think the family even accused her of getting him addicted and enabling his drug use, but I'm fairly certain he was already using well before he met her.

    Yeah, it was pretty much his own doing. The family was looking for someone to blame, so why not the slightly older, previously married American actress who had a rep as a party girl. She loved Andy, but I think her first marriage to Christopher Skinner imploded because of drug use.
