Samantha Fox’s Personal Life
Patrick Fox, a former carpenter, ran his daughter’s work until 1991 when she hired accountants to find more than £1 million (£2.3 million today) she thought he had stolen from her accounts. She took her father to court, but by that time he was separated and remarried. In May 1995, the court gave her £363,000 ($0.7 million today). By the time Patrick Fox died in 2000, they hadn’t talked to each other in almost a decade.
At the end of the 1980s, Fox started dating Peter Foster, an Australian thief who had been in prison for a long time. They went out on dates, but when he asked her to marry him, she said no. She was also with Paul Stanley, who is the rhythm guitarist and one of the lead singers for the rock band Kiss. In 1999, Fox judged a lesbian beauty event, which led to rumors about her sexuality.
There were also rumors that the woman she lived with, Cris Bonacci, the former lead guitarist for the Australian rock band Girlschool, was her lover. In an interview later, Bonacci said that the connection was true.
