Bombshell new book details the seduction of a 16 year old virgin teen by “Four Seasons” Jersey Boy FRANKIE VALLI.
While Clint Eastwood's new film “Jersey Boys” is set to hit big screens you won't see April Kirkwood's gripping story.
Kirkwood was just a starstruck 16-year-old when Frankie Valli — lead singer for the 1960s pop group the Four Seasons — lured her to a Holiday Inn in Belmont, Ohio, and had deflowered her, she claims in new book “Big Girls Don't Cry”.
Her mid-1970s sex session with the pop lothario launched a 20-year on-again, off-again affair with Valli, then 39, when he popped her cherry.
When Kirkwood, now 56, attended an Ohio concert wearing a smoking hot low-cut dress, Valli simply adored her.
She had been attending Four Season concerts since she was a pre-teen and was evidently a familiar face to the lusty lead singer with “the voice”.
“I saw him and I said, ‘You don’t know who I am, do you?’ and he said, ‘Yes, September, I definitely know who you are,’” Kirkwood recalled.
The married Valli asked her to join him for a drink, and the lovestruck teen drove herself to the Holiday Inn to her rendezvous with sin. Later, after a torrid session of sex and the young girl lost her virginity, Valli told her “Don’t do this with anyone else,” she writes in the book.
He rolled over to sleep while she tip-toed out, returning to her parents' home by midnight so she could attend school the next day
A week later, her mother drove her to meet Valli’s tour bus on the road, after getting her a prescription for birth-control pills. Kirkwood hit the road with the much older man, sleeping with the sin-hungry crooner in the crowded band bus, in limos and in hotels.
Kikrkwood claims that Valli kept up the sporadic affair with her for over two decades.
“I was very young and romantic and I thought I was going to marry him,” she said.
But often, as Valli zipped up, she writes, her fantasies went out the window as Valli laid down the law – make love, no marriage.
Eventually, big girls do cry – releasing a kiss-and-tell memoir the eve of a major movie about her former lover.
