When Blake's wife Bonnie Lee Bakely was slain in his car after dinner in 2001, the actor's alibi was that he was going back to the restaurant to get his gun. What?! Later acquitted, some believed it was the usual L.A. verdict: not guilty by reason of fame. But the fact that Bakely had been married 10 times with a history of hustling celebs helped Blake's case. In another odd L.A. tradition, the bankrupt actor was subsequently ordered to pay millions in a civil suit.
