Judy Garland's Separation
Is Blamed On Her Illness
By VIRGINIA Mac PHERSON
UP Hollywood Correspondent
HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 26 (UP)
Judy Garand’s marriage with Direc
tor Vincente Minnelli fizzled because
her old illness flared up again,
friends of the couple said today.
The stormy homelife of the girl |
who makes music and the man who
makes movies broke up three weeks
ago, but they didn’t get around to
telling anyone about lt until yes
Judy’s agent announced they had
separated, but whether a divorce
was in the offing he declined to say.
The 27-year-old songstress wasn’t
talking either. She’s been playing
hard to get since last June when
she gashed her throat with a drink
ing glass in a futile attempt to kill
herself. She tried suicide, she said
■later, because she felt her movie
career was slipping away from her.
But last night Minnelli confirmed
the news in two brief sentences:
“Yes, we have separated. I have
nothing more to say.”
It didn’t exactly surprise anyone
in Hollywood. Judy has been mak
ing the rounds of nightspots for
several weeks with ex-producer Sid

LIVES WITH DAUGHTER
Friends said Judy moved out of l

ago. Her four-year-old daughter,
Liza, and she are living in a smaller
home above the sunset strip.
“This never would have happen

“It’s time the world knew she is

left him twice before.
Later, they said it had all been
a mistake. Judy said she was sure
She could save the marriage, “Now

sympathetic when Judy tried sui

Finally the pug-nosed star decid

second marriage was on the rocks
Her first husband was movie con
ductor and composer David Rose,
whom she married nine years ago.
She was 18 then but already had
been a star for years, first as a wide
eyed screen moppet and then as a
lovely young musical actress.
That marriage ended in divorce in
1944. She said then that Rose was
sullen, didn’t like her friends and
was inconsiderate. A year later,
Judy married Minnelli at the home
of her mother here.
