David Niven's wife bedded JFK in act of revenge against her husband's philandering

Breaking News

[HNN: In this article Michael Munn, author of a memoir of David Niven, discloses that the actor's second wife bedded JFK.]

“I got my revenge,” she said. “Jack Kennedy wanted a quickie, and I gave him a quickie.”

This happened, apparently, when the Nivens went to the White House for President Kennedy’s 46th birthday celebrations in May 1963, six months before he was shot.

Hjördis said: “He gave me a disease. Chlamydia. It taught me that revenge is not the solution. After that I just got worse. Drinking more; rejecting David. I felt like I was tumbling downward and didn’t know how to get back up.”
