Some on you know I'm a big Godzilla fan. After doing some research I discovered, like many other celebrities, Godzilla had his own set of demons. I had no idea.
"While he dated on and off throughout his early career, love wasn't in the cards for Godzilla. In the 1950's and into the 1960s, a long string of women came and went. Rumors also swirled about his off-screen 'friendship' with co-star Raymond Burr, who were often photographed together in Hollywood Hills. Long hours on the set, extensive tour dates, and occasionally burning Toyko to the ground, seemed to keep the King of the Monsters married to his career, with no time for romance. When the cameras were off, and the jet fighters and tanks returned to base, the famous monster often sought solace in the bottle and, some say, a thousand-dollar a day cocaine habit. It might have gone unnoticed, but then the National Enquirer printed the allegations of a secret love child. Then came the notorious 1978 Godzuki paternity suit, which left Godzilla penniless and on skid row.
"In one year he had lost his fortune and all rights to his royalties. Had it not been for the intervention of his long time friend and mentor, Chuck Norris, as well on-again and off-again friend King Kong, Godzilla might has perished in a Hollywood flop house. After two years in rehab, Godzilla was clean and sober, and remained so ever since. He eventually met and fell in love and married his personal trainer, finally became an American citizen, and settled in Portland in 2003. Not long after, he published his controversial best-selling autobiography "King of the Monsters, Jester of Hollywood." Though his career has had a resurgence, introducing him to a whole new generation of fans, he has sworn off the hard-partying days of his youth. In his off-time, Godzilla writes cookbooks, is an anti-nuclear activist, and has his own Tik-Tok channel where he unboxes consumer electronics."
