Classic Quotes by Marvin Gaye and Janis Hunter about their relationship:

"During that same lunch we noticed Ryan O' was Marvin who seemed obsessed. He couldn't stop staring. I didn't see a physical attraction, but merely fascination. O'Neal was an incredibly handsome movie star. I told Marvin, 'If I can see that you're not sexualizing Ryan, just admiring him, then I hope you can see that I wasn't sexualizing Candice. Beauty is captivating.' He arrived at our table and shook hands with Marvin, who introduced him to me. I was thrilled. The thrill took a different turn though when O'Neal stood behind my chair and pressed himself against my neck that was covered over by my long, wild hair. He made his move with great subtlety, but there was no mistaking the feel of his penis against my neck. As he spoke with Marvin, he kept pressing ever so slightly. I had a funny smile on my face. I didn't know what to say or do. So I did nothing. When he left, I didn't share the experience with Marvin. I was afraid it would only lead to a fight." Janis Hunter 4/2015
