Gavin and His Guys
Gavin Newsom's womanizing is well documented, but he's not doing any better with men in his life. Gavin Newsom's run in with Alex Tourk who resigned this month as his Campaign Manager marks his second very public break with a very close male friend.
The then San Francisco Supervisor, Gavin Newsom split-up with his society pal, Billy Getty, heir to the Getty oil fortune. Things went south after Billy's new wife, Vanessa, started questioning some of Billy and Gavin's joint financial dealings. And, the fact that the younger Getty once dated Newsom's (then) girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle (now) Newsom's ex-wife.
Kimberly just moved here from Los Angeles to take a job as a deputy in the San Francisco district attorney's office. Apparently, Vanessa and cohorts inside the D.A.'s office tried to sabotage the hiring.
