Черните пантери

1rip Jean Dorothy Seberg

August 30, 1979

In August 1979, she was missing and found dead eleven days later in the back seat of her car, which was parked close to her Paris apartment in the 16th arrondissement. The police report stated that she had taken a massive overdose of barbiturates and alcohol (8g per litre). A suicide note („Forgive me. I can no longer live with my nerves.“) was found in her hand, and „probable suicide“ was ultimately ruled the official cause of death by the French coroner.11Seberg married Francois Moreuil, a French movie director who directed her in La récréation (1961), in 1958; they divorced in 1960, as a result of her affair with French author and diplomat Romain Gary. In 1962, while pregnant with their son Alexander Diego, she married Gary, who was 24 years her senior and had divorced his wife, British writer Lesley Blanch, for her. (Blanch, who had endured her husband’s infidelities for decades, declared his new wife not intellectual enough for him, dismissing the actress as „a very pretty, randy young woman, a little bit vulgar“.) When Gary discovered Seberg was having an affair with Clint Eastwood during the shooting of Paint Your Wagon, he confronted them both and challenged Eastwood to a duel. Eastwood ducked out. Shortly thereafter Gary decided to end the marriage.ClintEastwoodTheOutlawJoseyWalesPhotographC12148287

During the later part of the 1960s, Seberg used her high-profile image to privately voice support for the NAACP and supported Native American school groups such as the Mesquaki Bucks at the Tama settlement near her home town of Marshalltown, for whom she purchased $500 worth of basketball uniforms. She also supported the Black Panther Party. Though she had done nothing illegal, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover considered her a threat to the American state. Her telephone was tapped and her private life was closely observed. She knew about it and felt chased.j-edgar-hoover-gay

In 1970, when she was seven months pregnant, the FBI created a false story that the child she was carrying was not fathered by her husband Romain Gary, but by a member of the Black Panthers Party, Raymond Hewitt. The story was reported by gossip columnist Joyce Haber of the Los Angeles Times, and Newsweek magazine. Although Gary acknowledged the child as his own, Seberg did confess to him that it was in fact the result of an affair she shared with revolutionary student Carlos Nevarra during their separation. She gave birth to a white girl on August 23, 1970, but the infant, named Nina, died two days later. The Garys divorced by the year’s end.

In 1972, she married film director Dennis Berry. Seberg suffered from a deep depression and became suicidal. According to Romain Gary, Seberg made suicide attempts every year on her daughter’s birthday, including throwing herself under a train on the Paris Métro (since disputed). She also became dependent on alcohol and prescription drugs.Seberg’s problems were compounded when she went through a form of marriage to an Algerian playboy, Ahmed Hasni, on May 31, 1979. The brief ceremony had no legal force because she was still married to Berry. In July, Hasni persuaded her to sell her second apartment on the Rue du Bac, and he kept the proceeds (reportedly 11 million francs in cash), announcing that he would use the money to open a Barcelona restaurant. The couple departed for Spain but she was soon back in Paris alone, and went into hiding from Hasni, who she said had grievously abused her.
