Eartha Kitt Once Slapped The Sh*t Outta Jackée Harry For Having Sex W/ Her Boyfriend
Don’t mess with Eartha Kitt’s man! According to Jackée Harry, she once learned this the hard way. The 227 actress recently shared on social media that things got physical at one point, when the legendary actress and singer (Kitt) learned she had sex with her boyfriend. Jackee explained this after the question was posed on Twitter:
what’s the most surreal encounter you’ve had with someone famous? been thinking about this all day… mine was looking up while riding a bucking bronco in Liverpool last year and seeing Hugh Grant looking at me, who then stuck his tongue out and then just shrugged.
To this, Jackee responded,
Eartha Kitt slapped the f%#! outta me! She thought I was sleeping with her boyfriend.. which I was, but I didn’t know he was taken.
