- Linda Carroll, 59, became the focus of attention last week when a story surfaced in a London newspaper that Brando was Love’s grandfather by virtue of a brief liaison with Carroll’s mother, novelist Paula Fox.
The source of the information was said to be Carroll’s memoir about her childhood, to be published in 2005 by Doubleday.
“First of all, it’s crazy, it’s not true,” she told the (Corvallis) Gazette-Times. “Second of all, my book doesn’t say that.”
Carroll, a marriage and family therapist, said the memoir focuses strictly on her own life. Kristine Puopolo, Carroll’s New York-based editor, confirmed the manuscript makes no claim of ties to Brando. [AP]
