Singer's ex-girlfriend speaks out
The former girlfriend of the late Kevin DuBrow of Quiet Riot has issued a statement about the death of DuBrow. Lori Lee Samson, a former actress and TV personality now mainly working in the beauty field, apparently was with DuBrow as recently as his birthday (Oct. 29).
"Our relationship was a beautiful and very special one, who no one can ever replace or belittle," Samson said in a statement released this evening. "Our feelings were genuine, filled with love, respect and admiration for one another. Our last weeks together were filled with laughter, happiness and intimate moments."
Samson's statement then gets a little interesting:
"Celebrating his birthday in New Orleans, enjoying a wonderful meal at K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen, which I will never forget the mean snapping turtle soup. Then we continued our celebration in Vegas at the Palms where there was the incident with the lobster. He had everyone laughing, with his great sense of humor."
Turtle soup? The lobster incident? OK. Samson concludes:
"It hurts to think he will not be at my door picking me up to sweep me away to yet another adventure. It saddens my heart to know he will never be there for me when I feel sad to make me laugh. It brings me to tears that we can not share our lives together anymore, but our love will never die. His memory will live on with me close to my heart."
According to her press release, Samson "leaves an everlasting impression, [with] her positive kindhearted nature that conveys her true sincerity to each person she meets."
