Robert Wagner was spotted on March 31 leaving a dinner in Los Angeles with his wife, Jill St. John.
Wagner, 89, appeared dazed and confused after he left Mr. Chow with former Bond girl St. John.
Wagner, who wore an orange sweater tied around his shoulders, has been married to St. John since 1990, but he’s long lived under the shadow of his previous wife’s death.
As Radar reported, Wagner has been under suspicion he allegedly had a hand in his wife Natalie Wood’s drowning after they took a trip on the yacht Splendour off the coast of Catalina, Calif., in November 1981 and got into a nasty fight.
Last year, the Los Angeles Police Department named Wagner a person of interest in the almost 40-year-old case. Wood’s sister, Lana, has speculated the actress asked for a divorce, which sparked her former brother-in-law’s temper. “The continual fights; the sudden push that she wanted towards her career; her feeling that the kids were old enough and had been given enough of a basis where she could go off to work,” she said. “There’s jealousy involved. It’s particularly difficult for a man who has a wife who’s doing better.”
Wagner has always insisted his wife left the boat of her own accord in a dinghy but accidentally drowned. However, countered Wood’s sister, “I think that things got out of hand. I know Natalie can verbally push, and Natalie was a very by-the-rule person… She did not put up with a great deal that she felt was harmful to her.”
