Linda Blair’s Mom ‘Loved’ Rick Springfield Despite Their Controversial Age Difference: ‘He Was Part of Our Family’
Linda Blair is an actor who is best known for her role as the possessed teen in The Exorcist in 1973. Rick Springfield is an actor and musician who is best known for his role on General Hospital and his hit song “Jessie’s Girl.”
What fans of these celebrities may not know is that they dated each other in the mid-1970s when Springfield was 25 and Blair was only 15.
The two met at the Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood during a musical performance and spent the evening going to clubs and getting to know each other. They dated from 1974 to 1976, mostly under the radar from celebrity gossip publications.
They were able to do this because they kept their professional lives separate and because Blair’s mother enjoyed having Springfield a part of their family.
Although there was a 10-year age gap, Blair’s mother approved of the relationship
