8. He was rumoured to date his Motown duet partners
During the 1960s, it was debated that Gaye dated his female singing companions, such as Mary Wells and Kim Weston. Wells denied any romantic ties, and Weston said their relationship was platonic. The same went for his relationship with Tammi Terrell. Her death from a brain tumor in 1970 sent Gaye into a depression. Gaye also dated Dutch model Eugenie Vis, and was involved with British socialite Lady Edith Foxwell during the early 1980s.
