"Divorced. Jerry Schatzberg, 40, fashion photographer, novice film
director and Faye Dunaway's fiancé; by Corinne Schatzberg; on
grounds of incompatibility; after 18 years of marriage, two
children: in Juárez, Mexico."
Wilson, Jane (1968-03-10). "Faye's
Way". Los Angeles Times: p. N18. "The door of Faye
Dunaway's suite at the Hotel George V in Paris opened slowly and
cautiously. I was confronted by a dark-haired man wearing a
world-weary expression, a black sweater and a droopy Bolivian
bandit's moustache. I guessed that this must be Jerry Schatzberg,
40-year-old fashion photographer and Miss Dunaway's true love of
two years' standing. He looks about 30, and was once the hero of an
article in the late New York Herald Tribune entitled, The Sweet
Life of Jerry Schatzberg."
