Real name
Claudine Georgette Longet
January 19, 1942
Paris-born pop singer with a trademark soft, whispery French accent, and actress. Best remembered for a tragic day in 1976 when a gun she was holding discharged into the stomach of her boyfriend, ski legend Spider Sabich, leaving him mortally wounded in the bathroom of their Aspen, Colorado chalet. This tragic event finished her singing and acting career.
