The Story Of Why Anthony Kiedis Had Sex With His Father’s Girlfriend

The founding member and lead vocalist of Red Hot Chili Peppers, also known as one of the leading figures of rap-rock, Anthony Kiedis had a very unconventional childhood, to say the least. He moved to Hollywood and started living with his father Blackie Dammett at the age of 12 and had some interesting experiences.

Anthony’s father Blackie was an aspiring actor, part-time drug dealer, and later became RHCP’s Fanclub manager. It was Anthony’s decision to move in with his father as he always had a blast visiting him during the summer. However, aside from a good time, he also had some questionable experiences too.

Anthony described his summers in Hollywood with his father by saying:

“Those trips to California were the happiest, most carefree, the-world-is-a-beautiful-oyster times I’d ever experienced.”

As his father was a part-time drug dealer, Anthony would often experiment with drugs, especially marijuana and cocaine. When he was 14 years old, he accidentally tried heroin for the first time thinking it was cocaine. He detailed all of his childhood experiences in his autobiography Scar Tissue,’ in which he also revealed how he lost his virginity.

Anthony Kiedis’ Autobiography Named ‘Scar Tissue’

Back in 2004, Anthony Kiedis published a memoir that he co-wrote with Larry Sloman. ‘Scar Tissue‘ was initially going to be a collection of stories about his childhood, successful career with RHCP, and struggle with drug abuse. However, it evolved into an autobiography and became an international bestseller that was enjoyed by all age groups.

The stories that he told in the memoir were horrifying for many, especially the ones considering his childhood and the way he was raised by his father Blackie Dammett. One of the most striking stories is about the first time he smoked a joint at the age of 12, after being offered one by his father who was hanging out with his 18 years old girlfriend.

This is how Anthony described that moment:

“I had been there only a few days when my dad called me into the kitchen. He was sitting at the table with a pretty eighteen-year-old girl he’d been hanging out with that week. ‘Do you want to smoke a joint?’ he asked me.

Then he lit up the joint and passed it to me. ‘Be careful, don’t take too much. You don’t want to cough your lungs out,’ he counseled. I realized I was high. I loved the sensation. It felt like medicine to soothe the soul and awaken the senses.”

Did Anthony Kiedis Lose His Virginity To His Father’s Girlfriend?

This was not the only time that Blackie was there for one of Anthony’s firsts. Another crazy story that was narrated in ‘Scar Tissue,’ is about Anthony’s first sexual encounter with an 18-year-old girl at the age of 12. Although the age was already surprising for many, the fact that it was staged by his father was an even bigger shock.

Anthony Kiedis’ unexpected sexual intercourse was described in ‘Scar Tissue’ as follows:

“One night, when Anthony was 12, he went with his father to the Rainbow Room and Blackie’s girlfriend is there dancing for him. And Anthony asks, ‘Dad, can I have my first sexual experience with your girlfriend?’ and Blackie says, ‘Sure, son.’

So they go back to the house, and his dad builds a big bed out of four mattresses in his room and puts the girl next to him. And that’s how he loses his virginity.”

The fact that Anthony asked his father whether he can have his first sexual experience with his girlfriend reflects a lot about their relationship which clearly didn’t have any boundaries. Furthermore, the fact that Blackie was completely fine with this and actually prepared a big bed for them, makes this story even more surprising.
