Bette Midler Clings To Her Money
Friday, September 3, 1982

The Divine Miss M, Bette Midler, is slumming in her Beverly Hills home these days, coming down from filming Jinxed and preparing for a concert tour.

She is also going through another boyfriend, Benoit, who she says is in “zee show biz-i-ness.” He manages former Yes-singer Jon Anderson.

Midler and Benoit try to see each other as much as they can.

“We see each other evenings, we have dinner together. It’s very traditional, nothing kingue. Calm, always calm, because
there’s so much of people screaming during the day, you really do need a chance to catch your breath.”

But wedding bells aren’t about to ring.

“Oh, nevair, NEV—AIR! There’s community property in this state! I’m not giving away one nickel, honey.”
