Natalie Wood called Robert Wagner ‘the devil’ in secret confession to sister

Natalie Wood seemed to hint at something sinister with husband Robert Wagner, allegedly telling her sister before her tragic death: “Sometimes it’s better to be with the devil you know, than the devil you don’t.”

Lana Wood, now 72, revealed her famous sister’s eerie words to the creators of the blockbuster new podcast, Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood.

Wood discovered him in a rendezvous with a man!

Now, in Chapter 5, Wood’s younger sister recreates for the first time the bizarre family dinner at which she reintroduced Wagner years after she ended that first union.

“Everybody was shocked,” Lana said. “I pulled her aside and I said, ‘What are you doing? Why are you doing this?’”

never-before-seen memoir in which Wood confided in greater detail why she rekindled her romance with Wagner.

“We had broken up, gotten older. R.J. remarried,” Wood wrote. “The external trappings of our lives changed.”

“But I believe that those changes don’t in any real sense, make you a different person and to deny the validity of my feelings about someone a long time ago would be for me, to deny that I existed.”
