Bella Morte shot a music video in my house. This video was shot while Andy was in a live-in relationship with the person known here as Verity.
The day before the video shoot, Andy came over to help move things around get the space ready for the video shoot. He and I were the only people present. To be honest, I can’t remember how it came up, but we spoke of his relationship with his former girlfriend of 11 years, and he admitted to cheating on her many times over the course of their relationship. I didn’t cut him any slack. “You’re not supposed to do that.”
At the time, I felt like he was having a real, human, teachable moment.
The next day was the video shoot, and the actress/model that was hired for the video shoot was probably the youngest person in the house all day. I can’t speak for all in attendance that day, but for me, it was very clear. The writing was on the wall. He was flirting with this young woman all day and well into the night.
In almost no time, Andy had left his live-in girlfriend Verity to begin a relationship with the actress from the video.
That he acknowledged his previous behavior as wrong, but continued that behavior the very next day is something that I have never forgotten.
