Joan Collins ex-husband: Who is Peter Holm?
Joan Henrietta Collins is an English actress, author and columnist. Collins is the recipient of several accolades, including a Golden Globe Award, a People’s Choice Award, two Soap Opera Digest Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.
Collins was born in Paddington, London, and brought up in Maida Vale, the daughter of Elsa Collins (née Bessant, 1906–1962), a dance teacher, and Joseph William Collins (1902–1988), a talent agent whose clients would later include Shirley Bassey, the Beatles and Tom Jones.
Who is Peter Holm?
Peter Holm born on 16 June 1947, is a former pop singer and Swedish playboy who was married to actress Joan Collins between November 1985 and August 1987. He became her manager and co-produced two of her television mini-series with her, Sins and Monte Carlo.
Holm married actress Joan Collins 6 November 1985. Collins sought an annulment in December 1986 and was granted a final divorce 24 August 1987.
According to Collins, the marriage quickly degenerated into a string of “interminable arguments… and hearty crockery-throwing rows.” She said Holm was a bully with a ferocious temper and “the most combative person I’ve ever met.”
In December 1986, Collins received a restraining order against Holm. Undaunted, he gave interviews blaming Collins’s identification with her Dynasty character. “Joan is consumed by Alexis, that’s why she’s doing this.
She really loves me and I love her and we’ll get back together, I know it.” He contested a pre-nuptial agreement, limiting him to 20 per cent of Collins’s $5 million earnings during their 13 months together.
