Costume designer Patricia Field has spoken up to state that she was forced to kick out John F. Kennedy Jr. from her boutique located in Manhattan due to the copious amount of rude comments he made which were directed at her transgender employees.
Known for being the costume designer for “The Devil Wears Prada” and having a reputation for preferring to hire transgender employees, made the claim via her recently published book, titled “Pat in the City: My Life of Fashion, Style and Breaking All the Rules.”
As stated in a recent report which was published this past Sunday by Page Six, Field stated in the memoir that the younger Kennedy had made his way into her shop alongside his then-girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah, and appeared to not take well to the fact that Hannah was getting much more attention that he was from the staff in the store.
“Drag queens love a good mermaid,” stated Field in the released book, seemingly suggesting that Hannah’s role as a mermaid from the 1984 film “Splash” was the primary reason why the members of her staff “went gaga” because of the actress — and basically ignored the young Kennedy.
“He looked around and announced, ‘Bunch of freaks.’ If JFK Jr. was looking for attention with his comment, he got his wish,” expressed the “Sex and the City” costume designed in her statement. “All the queens at the shop were more than capable of dismissing anyone who acted up.”
Field explained that they recalled that it had been an employee named Codie who ended up laying into Kennedy for his rude comments: “If you don’t like it here, get the f*** out.”
“There was no room for interpretation. He went to wait outside while his girlfriend got the royal treatment,” stated Field.
Kennedy Jr. ended up dating Hannah in the wake of her break up with her previous longtime partner, musician Jackson Brown — and the pair stayed together until the passing of his mother, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, back in 1994. Their split, as reported by biographer Steven M. Gillon, was in part because of Hannah’s dogs.
According to the book by Gillon, “America’s Reluctant Prince: The Life of John F. Kennedy Jr.,” Kennedy Jr. ended up being highly upset that the actress and model were far more concerned about helping out her sick dog than she was at all about the fact that he had just lost his mother.
The couple ended up ending their relationship just a few months prior to the death of Onassis.
