Samantha Fox, in an old interview, called Peter the love of her life. But the desire to be together was not enough. In 1994, the couple finally broke up. The possible reason for the breakup was the tragedy that happened before their eyes. When Samantha and Peter lived together, they adopted a boy named Simon, who died after mistakenly drinking alcohol. For the child, the dose was fatal.
In 1999, the first rumors of Fox's bisexual tendencies surfaced. They intensified after the singer agreed to become a judge in a beauty pageant for women with non-traditional sexual orientation. Many suspected her in connection with the manager, but in 2003 Samantha herself made a loud statement and admitted that she was in love with Mira Sratton. She lived with her for 16 years.

But the star does not see anything wrong with this. She believes that she is endowed with a beautiful body to give people joy.
