Andy Warhol and his crew, shot around Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 1966, included Ingrid Superstar and Gerard Malanga as part of fashion shoot for the literary magazine East Side Review.

June 1963.

Anna was a composer, songwriter and record executive. Born in 1922, she was 17 years older than Marvin, they married in 1963. She was the inspiration for his music like the song “Pride and Joy” and the album

“Here, My Dear.”In 1966, they had a son Marvin Gaye IIIAnna at 44, was unable to have children so she faked the pregnancy in public. In reality the biological mother was Anna’s 17-year-old niece Denise Gordy who conceived the child with 27-year-old Marvin. Anna and Marvin separated in 1972. Devastated, Gaye re-wrote the ballad “Just to Keep You Satisfied.” In 1975, Anna filed for divorce and it was finalized in 1977. In the divorce decree, he agreed to give her a portion of his royalties for his next album, “Here, My Dear.” Anna died in 2014, she was 92.
