I always liked Don Johnson

but I never knew what to make of him. There were rumors that he liked men. I know he has always been married and I know he is very rich but is he bisexual?

The Globe caught him buying sex toys at a porn shop and then meeting some guy at a hotel immediately after. Tried to find it online but couldn't.

Well, when soft it looks far from enormous (scroll down at OP's link).

Are you kidding r5? He got a lot better looking as he got older. He's kinda fug in those earlier photos. As for the porn shop incident, he was caught on camera buying gay videos, one of which was entitled "Asian Studs".

A naked young Don in the L.A. production of Fortune and Men's Eyes (1969 - and directed by Sal Mineo!). I didn't know they had done the "naked guys showering on stage" gimmick 30 years before Take Me Out. (NSFW).

"very rich"? I doubt it unless he had a very smart business manager during those long-ago Miami Vice days.

It's funny. I saw him at a little league game in LA not so long ago. Seems like a nice enough guy. Was sitting there in the dust just like the rest of us.

"Pamela Des Barres didn't say shit in either direction."%0D %0D Yes, she did. She said he had a "huge cock." He dumped her, for 14 year old Melanie Griffith. But he told her it was okay, they could still fuck, even though he was with Melanie. Even little Melanie said it was okay if he wanted to still "see" Pamela on occasion. Pamela didn't go for that and they went their separate ways, although I think some time later they did hook up again. Pamela was also dumped by Jimmy Page...for a fourteen year old. She sure could pick 'em. %0D %0D Here's what's known about Don Johnson:%0D %0D He was (is?) a sleazy man whore%0D %0D He was heavily into cocaine and alcohol, maybe still is%0D %0D He has a big dick%0D %0D He's dumb as a tree, but with his looks it didn't much matter.%0D %0D

[quote]Yes, she did. She said he had a "huge cock."

Of course she would. He was the love of her life, she's a star fucker and he went from their relationship to superstardom. She only said that to make him happy. He clearly showed it in "The Harrad Experiment" and "huge" would be an awful big stretch if you get the drift.

Barbra was devastated because she thought he was going to marry her, then she wakes up one day to find that he had remarried Melanie Griffith. He hadn't even broken up with her, mind you. Just disappeared and married Melanie again. He broke Barbra's heart.

Streisand is a size queen. Has she ever been involved with anyone who wasn't rumored to have a big cock.

I thought he had money issues a few years back. He owed some Malibu grocery store several thousand dollars or something like that. Didn't his super wealthy younger wife pay his bills??

Don Johnson had been a male model (his photo is in one of those Athletic Model Guild books), hung out with the Andy Warhol/Factory crowd for a period, and, as already stated here, was in the Los Angeles cast of "Fortune and Men's Eyes" (a male prison drama, directed by Sal Mineo, a well-known, male homosexual).%0D %0D I have also seen Johnson (gee, what a surname!) as one of the three "eligible bachelors" on an episode of the Chuck Barris/ABC-TV production "The Dating Game" (original incarnation, hosted by Jim Lange), cruising for a pretty bachelorette. But that didn't rule out "bisexuality," as could have been a publicity stunt to further his career.%0D %0D I can attest Johnson on "The Dating Game," probably then in his early 20s, was, indeed, a tremendous specimen of male beauty--not yet "Miami Vice," just "California Nice!"

This is from 8 years ago:

Don Johnson in Possible Money Scandal

Former "Miami Vice" star Don Johnson is under investigation by German authorities after some $8 billion worth of credit notes, checks and securities were found in a suitcase in the trunk of a black Mercedes he was driving last November, according to published reports.

Johnson, 53, who was traveling with three companions across the Swiss border, was detained for several hours as authorities photocopied all the documents, the New York Post reports.

No charges have been filed, but American tax and custom officials reportedly have been informed.

German authorities have confirmed the actor, who also starred on TV's "Nash Bridges" and in the movie "Tin Cup," is suspected of being involved in a money-laundering ring, according to Britain's Daily Telegraph.

Informing American authorities "wouldn't have happened unless we were suspicious about why he had all these stocks and shares with him," German Customs Investigation Department spokesman Leonhard Bierl told that paper. "This was a lot of numbers."

Speaking to Reuters Wednesday, Johnson denied any involvement. "There is no truth to this story ... It has no merit, no foundation," he said. "They have taken a routine incident and blown it up into this money-laundering ring that supposedly I am involved in, and it has caused me unbelievable difficulty.

"I have had two bank accounts closed. I'm in a new partnership in an investment business, and both of those bank accounts were closed today as a result of this story."

Don Johnson has been a very very charming man and he is still charming. I like seeing him in the movies, however i think that in his personal life he was an asshole, at least in the past... I read that he was abusive to his ex wife Melanie Griffith (It is said that he was hitting her) and it is also known that he was a heavy drinker. I wonder if he got over his drinking problem.

"Heartbeat, I'm searching for a heartbeat..." That awful song (which was a hit on MTV, the video is hilarious!) was written by Ronstadt co-hort Wendy Waldman. Didn't he successfully sue the producers of "Nash Bridges" a few years ago saying that they never paid him the syndication rights or salary he deserved?

He's still married to the much younger Wells Fargo-connected heiress, Kelley Phleger, who had previously dated -- Gavin Newsom. Her family are members in good standing of San Francisco society and friends of the Gettys. Now that's a marriage I couldn't and still can't figure out.

There was a blind item about him recently about him hosting all male orgies at his Aspen house when the wife's away. Also "Heartbeat" was a #5 hit on the Billboard charts! And written by Eric Kaz of "I'm Blowing Away" fame. Wendy Waldman did lyrics.

He was so hot in "Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" in those tight jeans showcasing that plump ass and great bulge.

by Anonymousreply 6512/04/2012

He was always a major sleaze. He was fucking Melanie Griffith when she was 14 and he was 22. By way of explanation, he said in an interview that he was a very immature 22 year old and she was a very mature 14 year old, so it all evened out. He screwed Barbra Streisand for a while; I think she did a record with him. I guess he thought that hooking up with Streisand would jumpstart his singing "career." He's a typical Hollywood dirtbag.

Is it public knowledge that Melanie Griffith was only 14 when they got together? I have a feeling it's not and there would have been a bigger fuss over it if more people knew. That is way below the age of consent in any state.

It's 'public' knowledge due to Pamela Desbarres' book I'M WITH THE BAND. She wrote all about how little Melanie would drive to Hollywood, at age 14, party with the best of them & proceed to steal Don away from her (right under Pam's nose).

It was public knowledge at the time, r84. The seventies was the last decade where that kind of behavior was, on some level, acceptable. At least for "Hollywood types." The 70's managed to be simultaneously earnest/corny and pedophiliac/creepy.

Melanie is not named after her mother's character in The Birds. She wasn't born well before that movie. Hitchcock even gave her a present - a doll of her mother, in character, lying in a toy... casket.

I could never stand him, appeared very smug and pleased with himself, turned out to be the usual druggie and alcoholic. He coasted on his looks, he certainly had no talent. Probably stares in the mirror..looking at the crow's feet, wrinkles, where is that phone number for the plastic surgeon he wonders in a drunken haze.
