Cassandra Peterson's slept with Tom Jones

Peterson was involved in an affair with ‘It’s not Unusual’ singer, Tom Jones. It was Jones who made Peterson lose her virginity. Peterson revealed that she needed medical treatment as Jones was a rough lover. During an interview with Blender magazine, she said, “Tom seemed gentlemanly and nice, so when he was jumping on me... I thought, 'Well if I'm ever gonna do this, it might as well be with Tom Jones.' It was painful and horrible.”

However, Peterson was okay with that but what came later shattered her a lot. She further added, “She adds, "I thought for sure we were gonna run away together and get married. I went backstage to see him the next night, but he was with his two background singers... and was all over them. I was disgusted.”

Cassandra Peterson and her affairs

Apart from Jones, Peterson has also slept with Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley. She also had quite an incident with Jimmy Page. Jimmy Page wanted to sleep with Peterson very desperately when they met for the first time. When Paterson disagreed, Page ripped off her clothes.

Peterson ran out of his room with a torn sweater and pulled up skirt. However, she still continued to hang out with the band. She also dated Bill Cable and Eric Burdon.

Looking at Peterson's Instagram, she looked rather close to two men. The first is TV host and comedian, Chris Hardwick. Hardwick and Peterson looked quite close as the photo is all smiles. Peterson's fans looked quite jealous in the comment section. However, there is no strong evidence to prove that they are dating.


Similarly, she also looks close to Dave Navarro. Peterson has designated him as her good friend and neighbor but things look quite suspicious. We cannot be sure whether Peterson is dating until she confirms it by herself.
