On the other hand, when we talk about the love life of the American actor, he walked down the aisle a total of three times. Read on to find out about the three women Robert Blake was married to.

 Sondra Kerr (1961-1983)

The In Cold Blood actor was first married to Hollywood actress Sondra Kerr. The pair said their vows in the year 1961. Their marriage wasn’t built for eternity as they ended up going their separate ways after more than 2 decades together.

Throughout their marriage, Sondra and Robert welcomed two kids together: son Noah Blake and daughter Delinah Blake. The former couple welcomed their first child together, son Noah in the year 1965. They added another member to their clan the very next year. Their second baby, daughter Delinah joined them earthside in 1966.

According to her IMDb page, Sondra was born on August 17, 1936, which means she is 86 years old right now. She was raised in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is an actress by profession.

Kerr has 51 acting credits to her name. She is well-known by viewers for starring in movies such as Grown UpsOf Mice and Men, The Big Black Pill, Sad Inheritance, Vigilante Cop, Roxanne: The Prize Pulitzer, That Secret Sunday, Murder 1, Dancer 0, The Monkey Mission, The Killing of Randy Webster, Second Hand-Hearts, Nightside, Turnover Smith, This Year’s Blonde and The Last Child.

In addition to this, Sondra has also appeared in TV shows like Ghost Girls, Days of Our Lives, ER, Dangerous Minds, The New Adam-12, Quincy M.E., The Runaways, Kojak, The Rockford Files, Helter Skelter, Baretta, Harry O, Mannix, Movin’ On, Mission Impossible, Ben Casey, Breaking Point, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Channing, The Untouchables, and The Gunsmoke among many others.

Kerr even has a few awards in her kitty. In the year 2017, she won the award for Best Supporting Actor for her brilliant performance in the movie Grown Ups at the Best Actors Film Festival.

Bonny Lee Bakley (2000-2001)​

A couple of years after his split from Sondra Kerr, Robert said “I do” again, this time to Bonny Lee Bakley. In the year 2000, the pair got hitched. This was the second marriage for Blake, meanwhile, it was the tenth for Bakley.

As per Opoyi, Bonny Lee had a history of exploiting older men, especially celebrities for money. Back in the day, she was dating Christian Brando, the son of Marlon Brando, when she started her relationship with Robert Blake.

At that time, Bakley got pregnant and she told both men that the baby was theirs. Later on, down the lane, a DNA test proved that Blake was the biological father of the child. Then, she renamed her daughter from Christian Shannon Brando to Rose Lenore Sophia Blake.

Robert and Bonny Lee were married until May 4, 2001, when she was murdered. She passed away at the age of 44. The mom of four died in a fatal shooting. She was shot to death on May 4, 2001, while she was in Blake’s car which was parked around the corner from an Italian restaurant where the couple had just dined near their home in Studio City, California.

At that point, Blake told the cops that he left his wife alone and went inside the restaurant to retrieve a gun he claimed had fallen out of his clothing, which the police authorities determined was not used in her killing. When he came back, he saw his wife was shot dead.

A year after the killing of his second wife Bonny Lee Bakley, Robert was arrested by the authorities. During the trial, the prosecutors cited the statements of two retired stuntmen who alleged to authorities that Blake had attempted to hire them as hitmen. Then, this allegation was described as unreliable by the defense.

As of this moment, no evidence, proof, or eyewitnesses have linked Robert to the crime. Robert was found not guilty. Soon after, Boney Lee’s family brought a civil suit against Blake. Then, the American actor was ordered to pay $30 million in damages to her family.

Later on, the amount of damages awarded to the Bakley family was reduced to $15 million by a civil jury after Robert Blake’s lawyers appealed the civil suit, which found him responsible for Bakley’s death. Ultimately, the case was settled for an undisclosed amount.

Many years after the killing, Blake maintained his innocence in connection to the murder of his second wife Bonny Lee Bakley. As per CNN, Gerry Schwartzbach, who represented Blake during the trial said, that the actor “was a complicated man.”

The attorney went on to say, “He and I spent parts of virtually every day together over the year I lived in LA working on his case. We had a strong bond. I am saddened by his passing, but glad that he is no longer suffering.”

Pamela Hudak (2017-2019)

During a March 2016 interview, Robert who was 82 years old at that time talked about another woman in his life. Then, he didn’t reveal the identity of his ladylove. In 2017, he applied for a marriage license for his then-fiancée, Pamela Hudak. The Judgment Day: The John List Story star tied the knot with his third wife Pamela Hudak in the year 2017.

During Robert’s trial for the murder of his second wife Bonny Lee Bakley, Pamela testified that she and the actor had known each other for decades and dated briefly in 1991. The pair called it quits a year later. On December 7, 2018, it was reported that he filed for divorce from Pamela. The exes didn’t have any children together.

Sending lots of love, light, and strength to the close friends and entire family of the actor Robert Blake during this time of difficulty. Don’t forget to stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of showbiz.
