“As I recall, Jim didn’t believe that she was pregnant.”
– Jim Morrison’s close friend and body guard Babe Hill, quote from Jim Morrison: Friends Gathered Together, by Frank Lisciandro
“Patricia is trying to get Jim into bed again. She even has the birth announcements written out.
A suspicion had taken firm hold in me: that if she’d aborted it, her child was not–could not have been–Jim Morrison’s.”
– Janet Erwin, ‘Patricia Kennealy: Your Ballroom Days Are Over Baby!’
Patricia Kennealy had no problem writing about and publicly discussing intimate topics when she felt there was something to gain but becomes very aggressive if her version of the truth is met with even the slightest doubt.
And why in every hell there is do you care about so flipping much about the personal lives of three people you do not know and do not understand in the slightest, two at least of whom you will never meet, and if you should be unfortunate meet the third [reference to herself] face to face SHE PROMISES YOU WILL BE THE SORRIEST LITTLE BASTARDS ON THIS OR ANY OTHER PLANET, and none of whose PERSONAL LIVES ARE ANY OF YOUR GODDAMN BUSINESS????“
Patricia Kennealy with yet another very convenient change of heart and more tough talk and threats when she was sitting safely behind her computer keyboard in her little apartment.
Miss Kennealy had no issues at all when it came to talking about her abortion to the late Jerry Hopkins and the late Danny Sugerman when she found out they were including her in their book No One Here Gets Out Alive and also shared the story of her abortion with others who wrote biographies about Jim Morrison.
Kennealy went into great detail about what supposedly happened regarding her abortion in her…”memoir”…, she had no problem with Oliver Stone including the story of her abortion in his film The Doors and has discussed it publicly in interviews.
“Any questions about my decision to terminate my pregnancy are completely out of all bounds of decency and manners!”
JUST SO THAT THERE IS NO MISUNDERSTANDING HERE; UNLESS MISS KENNEALY STANDS TO BENEFIT PERSONALLY OR FINANCIALLY DO NOT ASK HER ABOUT THE ALLEGED ABORTION SHE WILLINGLY AND REPEATEDLY BROUGHT TO THE PUBLIC’S ATTENTION!
Got that? All of you nosy, indecent, ill-mannered people out there?
“As for those of you who have already pried into something that concerns you not in the tiniest degree: I HOPE YOU FRY IN HELL FOR BEING SO INTRUSIVE, INSENSITIVE, GRACELESS AND INHUMANELY CRUEL!!!”
Why are you suddenly, and very conveniently, so aggressive and defensive about what you suddenly consider to be a personal matter you were all too happy to share with the world?
“I didn’t understand how Patricia could even think of aborting the child of a man she claimed to have loved as much as she claimed to have loved Jim, no matter what the current state of their relationship might be.
A suspicion had taken firm hold in me: that if she’d aborted it, her child was not–could not have been–Jim Morrison’s.
Did it take her that long to assess the relative probabilities between Jim and David? Or a third man I don’t know about?
Since my notebook is in the car and Patricia’s steno pad is lying on the coffee table I look for a blank sheet towards the back of it. I’m not paying much attention to the contents as I rifle through looking for a clean page, and what I do see is innocuous enough, plane times and flight numbers, phone numbers, lists of things to do. Just what you’d expect from a notebook lying on a coffee table: nothing personal.
It’s pretty full, just a few blank pages at the back. But by the time I get there the hair on the back of my neck is prickling, because all of a sudden I am looking at a journal, not a notebook, and the contents are electrifying.
My suspicions about the abortion are correct.
She wasn’t sure Jim was the father, and that’s why she aborted.
What I didn’t know, didn’t even suspect, was the reason for her coming to Los Angeles twice, throwing herself at him over and over despite his obvious indifference, even hostility. She’s trying to get him into bed again, in hopes of conceiving again, ‘this time 100% proof positive his’. She even has the birth announcements written out:
‘Miss Patricia Kennely announces with joy the birth of a daughter MORRISON CHESNEY KENNELY….’
[Kennely is “Kennealy’s” birth name]
Patricia had fetched Pam to take the call, and when Pam was finished, Patricia sat her down and told her about the baby and the abortion.
Patricia also told me of an 11-page letter she’d written to Jim describing the abortion in graphic detail. ”
– Janet Erwin, ‘Patricia Kennealy: Your Ballroom Days Are Over Baby!’
It is becoming more and more clear why those who knew Jim Morrison and those who were close to him refer to No One Here Gets Out Alive as Nothing Here But A Lot of Lies.
Kennealy has never challenged, in writing nor through an attorney, Janet Erwin’s damning exposé about that directly contradicts all of the claims that Kennealy has made about her “relationship” with Jim Morrison.
“There are several incidents in Erwin’s article that line up with Strange Days; Kennealy’s pregnancy and abortion, her trip to L.A., Kennealy’s encounter with Pamela, the earthquake, Jim Morrison hiding the knives, etc. are all there. Janet Erwin also talks about the things she heard of from Patricia Kennealy’s own mouth.”
“And why in every hell there is do you care about so flipping much about the personal lives of three people you do not know and do not understand in the slightest?”
And how well did you “understand” Jim Morrison or Pamela Courson, Miss Kennealy?
From what I can gather you didn’t really spend enough time with Jim or Pamela to a have true “understanding” of either one. I don’t know that you “understood” Pamela or Jim any better than the average Doors’ fan or member of the general public.
– Patricia Kennealy, 2017
“I don’t think any claims were placed on either one of them, by either one; just like, ‘we’ve had three days of fun or just being together’. I didn’t feel there was any special connection between the two of them.”
– Doors’ publicist Leon Barnard on Patricia Kennealy, quoted in the book Jim Morrison: Friends Gathered Together, by Frank Lisciandro

Insensitive, graceless, cruel.
Interesting choice of words, Miss Kennealy.
“I haven’t read Strange Days, nor do I intend to, but I’ve had parts of it read to me, enough to know it’s simply a further and ever more spiteful rearranging of reality. Since its publication in 1992 Patricia Kennealy has continued to demonstrate her utter lack of pride and most of all, her truly vicious, vengeful and greedy nature. “
