Ten times married (officially) and a mother of four, New Jersey born Bonnie Lee Bakley wanted to be famous but instead ended up being shot dead in the car of the In Cold Blood star Robert Blake outside a Studio City restaurant in 2001.This scammer once stated that “being around celebrities makes you feel better than other people” and falsely claimed that Marlon Brando’s son, Christian, was the father of her fourth child. In November 2005, after being acquitted of her murder in March 2005, Blake was found liable for Bakley’s death and ordered to pay $30 million to her children. In 2012, he told Piers Morgan: “It’s funny, when push come to shove… Take this with love… God never gave her that little piece of sunshine… She was a talented woman [but]… I think she was a con artist… She came to Hollywood to con her way into show business”. She sadly found what she wanted in death only.

She was a very nasty piece of work. She didn’t deserve to be murdered but she was a bitch.
She supposedly married up to 16 times and men around her died soon after putting her in their wills. She was a hustler and as David rightly points out, a bitch!!!!!!!!
What a sad story – if she’d put her talents to a better use she might have found real fame the proper way.
Where is Blake now?
