Yngwie Malmsteen’s wife tries hard to erase his past!
Yngwie and I at our first apartment in Stockholm 1980
I had a big review ready to publish here on my blog about the movie “SÅ JÄVLA METAL” that was just released at the movie theatres here in Sweden. The movie, produced by Yasin Hillborg brings all the important pieces of the Swedish Metal scene together and nails all details and nostalgic memories for all rockers. But especially for us that were there … that really were THERE and involved somehow.Today I got a very disturbing phone call from one of the co-producers of the movie that has just hit the cinema. He was very sorry to say that they will be forced to cut out all my photos and interview from the movie because Yngwie Malmsteen’s wife threw a fit when she saw the movie and threatened to throw a lawsuit on them if my involvement is to not be erased. Can anybody believe the nerve of this woman? She is making a complete fool out of herself here in Sweden.
I was happy to be involved and to take part in the movie. With an interview and with old photos showing Yngwie and me as teenagers. I was Yngwie Malmseen’s first girlfriend and we had four years together that were very interesting, important and parts of our lives. This was before he was famous and I also supported and helped him when we left Sweden and started a new life in the U.S.A. that brought him acknowledge and fame.
From grief, struggle, distress to the life of a rock star that he very much undoubtedly deserved. And I was there the whole way. I stood by him, when people here in Sweden treated him like shit, he stayed at my parents home when he had no food and I later moved to his mom’s home to keep him company as he was a very lonely person really. I loved him just the way he was! We were inseparable for the whole period we where together. Anyway… we were young, so very young. But just the same, a very important, fun and happy time of my life.
We kept in contact for years after we broke up and I was very good friends with his mother for many years, even when he was not with me anymore. O’boy, Yngwie’s mom Rigmor would have been so upset and disappointed of April’s behaviour.
During the years I have heard very bad things about his wife, terrible things actually, from band members, family, close friends, business acquaintances etc. In fact I have never heard anything positive about her, not a single word. But I never met her and have never felt the urge to say bad things about a person that I never met. Also out of respect for Yngwie, he has never done me any harm really and so I kept my nice memories of him, that is all. She has never been important what so ever.
So yes, it seems she is a controlling monster and I believe a lot of people who had to deal with her bullshit during the years will agree. This person has been with Yngwie for years, has control over his life and carer as his manager and still so darn jealous and insecure. She will take any means to try to erase his past. He is not allowed to have any contact with old friends, and any ex are forbidden to go near any venue when he has a concert here in Sweden. I call this behaviour PATHETIC.
So I am cut out of the movie, not a big deal really. But a disturbing fact that she gets away with being a total bitch and tries so hard to erase his past.
While I am happy about life with my beautiful family and friends, Yngwie’s wife lays sleepless at night throwing febrile fists in the air and chasing windmills in the shape of old little girlfriends.
Still you all should see the movie SÅ JÄVLA METAL even if her behaviour is so darn UN-METAL.
Here are some of the photos that were shown in the movie. I shall put them here instead.
