Veteran singer Bob Dylan's ex-girlfriend Suze Rotolo has branded him as being vain and a liar, revealing that she had illegally aborted the "Blowin' in the Wind" star's baby in the 1960s.
Rotolo, who had appeared on the cover of Dylan's album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, has detailed her allegations in her autobiography 'A Freewheelin' Time', which is due for release in May (08).
"Much time was spent in front of the mirror trying on one wrinkled article of clothing after another, until it all came together to look as if Bob had just gotten up and thrown something on. Image was all," Contactmusic quoted Rotolo, as stating in the book.
In the book, Rotolo also revealed Dylan's habit of telling lies about his childhood, including "the sad story he told of being abandoned at a young age in New Mexico and then going to live with a travelling circus".
"He had an uncanny ability to complicate the obvious and sanctify the banal - just like a poet. Bob was charismatic; he was a beacon, a lighthouse. He was also a black hole," she added.
She further claimed that the two eventually separated, because she could cope with the "pressure, gossip, truth and lies that living with Bob entailed".
