Diahann Carrol and Sidney Poitier

According to Diahann Carrol, her nine plus year relationship with Sidney Poitier was a tumultous one. At one point during their on-again, off-again relationship, they became engaged but according to Carrol’s memoirs, Poitier backed out of the marriage because of second thoughts he was having about divorcing his first wife (yes, they were engaged in an affair).
