The Relationship Between Jacelyn Reeves and Clint Eastwood
In 1984, Jacelyn Reeves and Clint Eastwood met at the Hog’s Breath Inn. Other stories claim the two met on a plane which Clint boarded, and where Jacelyn was working at the time.
The chemistry was instant and they started dating. At the time, Clint was already a married man and his wife was Maggie Eastwood. The two had to keep their affair a secret from the world, so they moved into a private house and dated for a period of 5 years.
Within the period of their affair, the secret couple gave birth to two children. Scott Eastwood, the son, was born on March 21, 1986, while Kathryn Ann Eastwood, the daughter, was born two years later in 1988.
Eventually, news about their affair hit the tabloids and it was out in the open. This probably led to the divorce between him and his then-wife, Maggie.
Around that time, it was said that Clint also had an affair with actress Sondra Locke, which she later revealed in her autobiography.
The relationship between Jacelyn and the A-List celebrity finally ended in 1990. The reason for their break-up is not known, but apparently, Jacelyn added a “father declined” status remark in both her children’s birth certificates. She never had the opportunity of getting the “wife” title to Clint Eastwood.
After the split, Jacelyn Reeves relocated to Hawaii along with young Scott and his sister, Katheryn. Life wasn’t particularly easy for them in Hawaii, they struggled with money and Jacelyn was finding it hard to maintain jobs and two children on the side.
Their poor condition made Scott start working as a bartender from an early age. Although, he later moved back to California to be with his father.
Jacelyn soon started dating a new man named Private Bell. The two tied the knot shortly after. There was no such thing as news of the wedding date let alone a venue, as the couple made sure everything was as discreet as possible.
That was the last we heard of Clint Eastwood’s ex-girlfriend, as she disappeared into oblivion and has since then maintained a very low-profile. Even considering her affiliation with lots of celebrities, she rarely makes public appearances. Except of course attending award shows and events with the sole intent of supporting her kids in their career ambitions.

He also worked at a gas station just to support himself.
