Country music legend Dolly Parton reportedly was so distraught upon hitting menopause and not having had children with husband Carl Dean, that she contemplated taking her own life.
She told the Globe: ”I went through a dark time – it lasted several months. I think I would have made a nice mama. I always thought I’d have kids. We tried to for so many years, and then I put it on hold because my career was doing so well and I was on birth control pills.”
“Then one day, I just said to myself, ‘Right, get off your fat butt, or if you really are suicidal, then go and shoot your brains out.”
