Legendary music executive Clive Davis comes out as bisexual in memoir 'The Soundtrack of My Life'

By Gina DiFalco,

Iconic music producer Clive Davis has dropped a bombshell in his new memoir The Soundtrack of My Life.

Davis, who has five Grammys and has been credited as discovering the late Whitney Houston, has come out as bisexual for the first time.

He revealed that he had started to experience male relationships in the Studio 54 era, explaining the first time that he did.

Davis said a male fan approached him, and β€œOn this night, after imbibing enough alcohol, I was open to responding to his sexual overtures," Us Weekly reports.

Despite being in a few relationships with men, including a 14-year relationship with a male doctor, he has never been open about his bisexuality. He has been with a man since for almost a decade following his breakup with the doctor. He has also been married to twice – both times to women.

He told Katie Couric on her show Katie, "I'm still attracted to women. You don't have to be only one thing or another. For me it's the person. I'm in a monogamous relationship, [and] I respect monogamy. And I hope that this is understood."

Rolling Stone reports that in the memoir, Davis, who has four children; Fred, Mitchell, Doug and Lauren, admits that being bisexual affected one of his sons, Mitchell. But after "one very trying year,” they are now OK.
