“Little Sister” memoir: “Natalie Wood raped by Kirk Douglas”
After the meeting, Natalie “looked in a terrible state. She was disheveled and upset. She and Mom began to whisper excitedly to each other. I couldn’t really hear what they were saying. Something bad had apparently happened to my sister, but whatever it was. I was probably too young to be told. ” Lana was eight years old then. Natalie and her mother decided not to say anything, because the revelation would ruin the career of the actress. Douglas died in February 2020, at the age of 103. Rumors about violence have been circulating for a long time. Wood died under mysterious circumstances in 1981, drowned during a weekend boating on Santa Catalina Island, California. An investigation into her death was reopened in 2012 and since 2018 her husband Robert Wagner has been listed as a person of interest.
