Rod Stewart has had approximately 300 wives, but has always been haunted by the rumor that he once had his stomach pumped after getting a belly full of semen from blowing a bunch of sailors in a San Diego bar. Show off!
Turns out the story is not true.
Stewart addresses the rumor in his new memoir, and the Daily Beast breaks down just where the rumor came from;
By 1982, Stewart was married to actress Alana Hamilton, ex-wife of actor George Hamilton. They went on vacation in Hawaii, and Toon came along. The hotel was overbooked, so Toon and Alana’s son Ashley, who was 7, shared a room. “Toon, of course, couldn’t resist pulling some bloke in the bar that evening and taking him back to the room. I fired him in the morning. Toon’s revenge was absolutely inspired. He fed the press a story in which, as a consequence of an evening spent orally servicing a gang of sailors in a gay bar in San Diego, I had been required to check into a hospital emergency room to have my stomach pumped…I have never orally pleasured even a solitary sailor, let alone a ship’s worth in one evening. And I have never had my stomach pumped, either of naval-issue semen or of any other kind of semen.
Toon is Tony Toon, Stewart’s former publicist. His vindictive former publicist.
Not that Stewart has anything against the gays of course. He apparently spent all of the 70s doing blow with Elton John and Freddie Mercury.
Just not blowing them.
