Marianne Faithfull has accused her ex-boyfriend Jean de Breiteuil of causing Jim Morrison's death.
In an interview with MOJO magazine, Faithfull recounts the summer of 1971 when she and de Breiteuil, a drug dealer, visited Paris. When he informed her that he was going to visit Morrison's apartment, Faithfull recalled feeling an ominous threat, which is why she decided to stay behind.
"I could intuitively feel trouble," Faithfull said. "I thought, I'll take a few Tuinal and I won't be there. And he went to see Jim Morrison and killed him."

The singer added that she was sure the death of The Doors singer wasn't on purpose, reiterating the much-rumored report that Morrison died of a heroin overdose. "I mean, I'm sure it was an accident. Poor bastard," Faithfull clarified. "The smack was too strong? Yeah. And he died. And I didn't know anything about this. Anyway, everybody connected to the death of this poor guy is dead now. Except me."
Faithfull also discussed the death of Amy Winehouse who, like Morrison, died at 27 from substance abuse. "Amy was very, very wary of me," Faithfull said. "She knew that I knew and she didn't want me to say anything. There's a level of narcissism, which is all mixed up with self-hatred. I know it well. It's like a glass wall between you and the world, so that all the love that everybody pours onto you, you don't feel it. But I can't think what I could have done apart from take her and [shouts] shake her! 'You stupid little c---! Wake up!'"
