But none of these anecdotes compare to the last five pages of the book, in which Davis' admits to living a "bisexual life." As Rolling Stone reports, the final chapter gives a candid look into the 80-year-old's private life. In the heyday of Studio 54, Davis says "after imbibing enough alcohol, I was open to responding to [another man's] sexual overtures."
The music mogul writes that being with a man provided "welcome relief" after Davis separated from his second wife in 1985. He then explored his sexuality, carrying on simultaneous relationships with two women and one man. By 1990, Davis entered a monogamous relationship with a male doctor, a union that lasted until 2004.
Speaking to Katie Couric on her daytime talk show "Katie," the Davis said, "I'm still attracted to women. You don't have to be only one thing or another. For me, it's the person. I'm in a monogamous relationship. I respect monogamy and I hope that this is understood."
Davis is currently in a relationship with another man, but his coming-out caused "one trying year" with son Mitchell. The two have since solved their differences.
Besides detailing Davis' sexual history, The Soundtrack to My Life also digs into the executive's working relationship with Whitney Houston, saying that the late singer was in "complete denial" of her drug addictions. The book, written with Rolling Stone's Anthony DeCurtis, is available now via Simon & Schuster.
