Monika Dannemann Biography
(German Figure Skater and Painter)
Birthday: June 24, 1945 (Cancer)
Born In: Düsseldorf, Germany
Monika Dannemann may be known as the ‘Girlfriend of Jimi Hendrix’ or the romantic interest of Hendrix, but there is more to her than simply her relationship status. She was a German figure skater and painter who won several competitions in the sport and earned quite a few medals and trophies. She also represented her country at the national championship. It was however, her relationship status with Hendrix that gained Dannemann attention. Though there was nothing official between the two except for Dannemann’s claims of Hendrix proposing her for marriage just days before his death, their relationship gained quite a limelight post Hendrix’s sudden death at her home due to asphyxiation. Dannemann since then remained surrounded around controversy—his sudden death, her inconsistent stories about his death, her house that turned into an eerie shrine for the singer, her marriage to Roth, her book ‘The Inner World Of Jimi Hendrix’, her slanderous comments about Hendrix’s former girlfriend Kathy Etchingham and finally her sudden and premature death.
