World Exclusive Cover Story: How Shirley Temple Rescued Daughter From Heroin Hell

SHIRLEY TEMPLE charmed America as a child and represented her country as an ambassador as an adult, but her most important role was that of mother – and in an ENQUIRER world exclusive, we reveal how she once saved the life of her troubled daughter Lori.

Sadly, the Hollywood icon – famous for her signature song “On the Good Ship Lollipop” – died of natural causes at age 85 on Feb. 10. She’s survived by Lori and son Charles Jr., her children with her second husband Charles Black, as well as daughter Susan, whose father was Shirley’s first husband, the late actor John Agar.

In a riveting ENQUIRER expose, we disclose how Lori ran into potentially deadly problems as a young lady while performing with a grunge rock band, and Shirley stepped in to rescue her.

“Lori had a difficult relationship with her mother growing up,” said a source close to the family. “But when the chips were down, Shirley helped Lori wholeheartedly. She saved her daughter’s life!” And now, Lori is completely sober.

As always, The ENQUIRER digs deeper to bring you the details of this little-known chapter of Shirley’s life and offer a glimpse of the woman – and mother – behind the legend. It’s one story that fans of the once curly-headed little dynamo won’t want to miss -- so pick up your copy today!
