For some, Bobby Womack is a musical hero behind some of the greatest love songs every written.

For others, he is one of the most villainous characters to darken Pop culture’s corridors.

When Cooke was murdered on December 11th 1964, his grieving wife Barbara– who had lost a two year old child two years earlier- was left to fend for herself as a number of powerful figures swarmed around her hoping to gain access to Cooke’s lucrative discography.

Stepping in to support her? 21-year old Womack. They were married three months later.

Horrified, members of Cooke’s grieving family assaulted Womack in a Chicago hotel and were hit with a new a horror years later when they discovered that Womack had taken advantage of Cooke’s then 17-year-old daughter. How Linda responded when she found out Womack had been up to?

She shot him.

Who can you trust, eh?

    Bobby, Bobby, Bobby. Damn Bobby. Had never that he showed up to Sam’s funeral wearing his clothes and driving his car. Sam’s brother should have beat his a$$. Let’s not forget why Linda shot him. Bobby, Bobby, Bobby. Damn Bobby. 🤔
