This chapter examines the split up of Nina and Andy early in 1970. On February 14 Amsterdam News columnist Jesse H. Walker reported in his Theatricals column that the couple had separated “and a divorce may be in the works.” A front-page story in The Philadelphia Tribune February 21 announced that “Nina Simone Leaves Mate Who Earns $100,000 as Her Personal Manager.” Andy had moved to a midtown Manhattan apartment, and though he did not comment on his income, he insisted there was no “love triangle” involved. “It's simply a matter of personal difference.” Rumors of his infidelities persisted nonetheless. Years later Nina might have forgotten exactly when she left Andy, but she did not forget the reason.

Keywords:   Nina, Andy, Jesse H. Walker, divorce, love triangle, personal difference
