Bakley Claimed Jerry Lee Lewis Fathered Her Child

Country legend Jerry Lee Lewis has found himself associated with one of the nation’s hottest scandals. Baretta star Robert Blake’s wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, who was mysteriously slain last Friday (May 4) in Los Angeles, said Lewis was the father of her daughter, Jeri Lee Lewis, born July 28, 1993, in Desoto County, Miss. Jerry Lee’s sister, Linda Gail Lewis, told The New York Daily News that Bakley was a “groupie” who had pursued her brother. “I don’t know if the DNA tests proved the little girl was his baby,” Linda Gail said, “but I think there was some settlement.” Jerry Lee’s business, JKL Enterprises Inc., which is run by his wife, Kerrie Lewis, issued a statement Wednesday (May 9) in which Lewis denied fathering Bakley’s baby.
