Patrick Swayze was abandoned by his adulterous, abusive wife, leaving the dying star to wallow in his own filth in their horrific home as he wasted away from vicious pancreatic cancer.
One of the “Dirty Dancing” star’s closest friends has made this bombshell allegation, tearing the veil off what was thought to be a Hollywood fairytale marriage that lasted 34 years and ended when Patrick, 57, died of cancer on September 14, 2009.
The acquaintance claims that Patrick’s final months were made even more painful by the fact that his wife Lisa Niemi refused to let anyone visit the actor, who had dwindled to a meager 90 pounds, including his mother.
However, a yearlong investigation by RadarOnline.com revealed that the Ghost star hid a terrible secret and actually died from a broken heart – because Niemi had multiple relationships with both men and women.
“He loved her with all his heart but it was a serious love-hate relationship,” the longtime friend told RadarOnline.com.
“She would beat on him and he would beat on the walls and furniture. They fought and I covered up a lot of that — they destroyed hotel rooms, cars, their house …. It was abusive.”
In response to a question from RadarOnline.com about whether or not Niemi would strike Swayze during his 21-month battle with illness, the friend said: “Oh yeah, it didn’t matter. She wouldn’t hit him with stuff — she would claw at his arms and neck. She would punch and slap him.”
“As he got sick, he was defenseless,” his pal added.
“Cancer bought him from 180 pounds to 90 pounds. She always had to upper hand because he wouldn’t hit her. He was adamant about never ever laying his hands on her.”
Since Niemi’s younger brother Don Swayze, 57, was busy at work or otherwise unavailable to care for her dying spouse, his pal claims she abandoned him.
“Lisa would be gone for hours doing whatever she was doing and Donnie would come in and Patrick would be lying in his own feces and pee,” the pal said.
A longtime friend of Swayze’s and a family source both described Niemi as a “evil,” temperamental control freak who dictated the actor’s every move, from his budget to his choice of roles to how much he could spend at the grocery store.
“He had another friend before me and Lisa had a falling out with him — so she pretty much forbade Patrick from ever seeing the friend again,” the pal said.
Charlotte Stevens, who has known Swayze since boyhood, said RadarOnline.com that she urged the actor to divorce Niemi, whom he married in 1975, after he admitted to having extramarital affairs.
“We would talk like old friends, like what was going on in our lives and the affairs would come up,” Stevens, 63, told RadarOnline.com.
“I would tell him, ‘You mean to tell me she’s having these affairs and you haven’t stepped out on her?’ And he would say, ‘No I don’t want it used against me.”
A pledge to his mother Patsy kept the humiliated hottie from divorcing Her out of fear that she would expose a terrible truth that would destroy his career.
In a debate regarding Niemi’s infidelities, “Perfectly Patrick” administrator Joan Leighton offered a plausible explanation for why Swayze had refused to divorce her.
“Patsy said to me that she made Patrick promise he’d never divorce Lisa until she Patsy was dead… and Lisa threatened to reveal it…. and it would be a scandal… that would hurt maybe someone plus hurt the Swayze family,” Joan wrote in an April 27, 2016 post.
Leighton, a longtime fan, confessed to writing the message on RadarOnline.com but afterwards claimed she was only reacting to the posts of other users. The one blemish on her record is that she referred to Niemi as a “black widow.”
Niemi, now 60 and remarried, shocked all of Swayze’s friends and relatives two months before he passed away by forbidding any of them from visiting him at their California property, which they called “Rancho Bizarro.”
His mother Pasty also passed away in September of 2013 at the age of 86, not long after Niemi made an attempt to evict her from the Simi Valley house that Swayze had bought for his mother and that the widow subsequently inherited.
“Could you imagine not being able to see your son who is dying?” a family friend close to Patsy told RadarOnline.com. “It was unexplainable. There is no excuse for it and I don’t know what Lisa was thinking.”
What’s more shocking is that Swayze wasn’t even let to leave.
“She wouldn’t let me see him two months before he died!” the pal complained.
“It got to the point where she wouldn’t even allow him leave the ranch grounds… She basically held him hostage.”
The lonely actor, desperate for human contact, would often wake up in the wee hours of the night to make phone calls to his friends and relatives.
“He’d call me a 2 a.m. after she had already passed out and we would talk at that time!” the friend claimed. “It was unusual but yet again that was Lisa, she was that way.”
During the same time frame of two months, Swayze drafted a second will that left Niemi his whole $40 million estate and nothing to his family.
RadarOnline.com had a handwriting expert look at the signature and conclude it was forged.
However, Lisa Niemi has strenuously denied the claims, with her spokesperson telling MailOnline: ‘It is categorically untrue. It is that simple.’
Four years after her husband’s death in December 2013, his wife announced she was engaged to jeweller Albert DePrisco.
The couple married in May 2014 after ceremony at the Mar-a-Largo Club in Palm Beach in front of 50 guests.
