Their relationship is on the rocks, and Maggie is with the Stones. By their sixth anniversary, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau and wife Margaret Trudeau had decided to go their separate ways. Thirty years younger than the PM and a hippie free spirit, Maggie Trudeau was unhappy about her husband’s constant work-related absences and was forced to raise her three young sons largely by herself.
Bipolar and depressed, Margaret smuggled drugs in the prime minister’s luggage and tore apart a tapestry in the prime minister’s official residence in Ottawa, but the public learnt about this dramatic fashion, when Maggie is spotted at a Rolling Stones concert at Toronto’s El Mocambo club. She later invites them back to her hotel room. Even before she finally separated from her allegedly gay husband in 1977, she frequented Studio 54 nightclub in New York City and the photos like the one above were featured on many front pages. She was also associated with Rolling Stone’s Mick Jagger and U.S. Senator, Ted Kennedy.
