THE son of Dame Joan Collins has claimed his late father Anthony Newley was a “paedophile”.
Sacha Newley, 52, done the allegations about his late father, an actor and singer-songwriter, in an talk with The Sunday Times.
But Dame Joan has strongly denied Sasha’s claims.
She pronounced in a statement: “As distant as I’m endangered this is positively untrue. we have zero serve to add.”
It comes as the artist Sasha gears up to recover a discourse focusing on his childhood in Hollywood, entitled Unaccompanied Minor.
In the talk Sacha bluntly addressed long-circulated rumours about his dad.
He said: “He was a paedophile. My father was drawn to youthfulness.
“He suspicion ignorance was an aphrodisiac. That was his passionate inclination and it’s a very dangerous, mortal thing.”
Sacha combined as child he witnessed sex regularly.
He said: “My father put sex front and centre. He unprotected me to all of that — it was positively inappropriate.”
The artist claimed his father’s X-rated 1969 film Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?, is a “confession of paedophilia”.
The film, created and destined by Anthony and starring himself as Merkin and Collins as his on-screen wife Polyester Poontang.
Meanwhile Sacha and his sister Tara, now 54, played the couple’s children.
He said: “Mercy Humppe is the ‘perfect childlover’ an underage girl. He [Tony] didn’t brace her age exactly, but it falls within the [Roman] Polanski thing.”
Sacha told The Sunday Times he believed the film was autobiographical and what it suggested about his father led to the relapse of his parents’ marriage.
They divorced after a nasty justice battle in 1970.
He died aged 67 in 1999 following a battle with cancer.
