Pam Grier: “We spent a lot of time talking about our dreams, where we had come from, and where we wanted to go. Freddie was Puerto Rican and Hungarian, and he turned to me to be one of his mentors in his life. I took the job willingly, entranced with his romanticism and his passion for life. I loved that Freddie constantly told me how beautiful I was, asked me questions, and actually listened to the answers. He may have been chronologically younger than I was, but he often showed a maturity beyond his years. When we finally became lovers, we were truly in love, deeply affectionate, and eager to support each other any way we could.” 

In her book Foxy: My Life in Three Acts, Pam details how Freddie was persistent in trying to get her pregnant but she didn’t want to bring a child into the world with him being unstable. He suffered from depression and as his drug abuse worsened she broke up with him.
