Frank Sinatra was allegedly 'completely inappropriate' with Harry Connick Jr.'s wife

Many Sinatra fans would've loved to meet the singer before his 1998 passing, but Harry Connick Jr.'s own run-in with the artist was an "unpleasant experience," to say the least.

Connick recently appeared on UK program "This Morning," where he recounted an evening in the early 1990s when Frank Sinatra behaved questionably toward Coninck's wife, Jill Goodacre.

Connick says he attempted to approach Sinatra in an elevator to apologize for his presence onstage earlier; he had been slated to perform but got "really nervous" and was unable to sing: "I'm sorry. I'm much better than what you saw," Connick says he told Sinatra.

But Sinatra paid no mind to Connick, instead zeroing in on Goodacre, Coninck's then-girlfriend and now his wife.

"He looked at [her] and kind of placed her face in his hands and said, ‘You’re beautiful,’ and he kissed her right on the mouth, walked out of the elevator and that was the end of that," Connick recalled.

The show's host, Philip Schofield, said that Sinata's actions would be considered "unacceptable" in 2019, to which Connick replied, "It was probably unacceptable then."

"Obviously it's completely inappropriate," Connick added.

Connick and Goodacre, a Victoria's Secret model of the '80s and early '90s, wed in 1994 and share three daughters. 25 years later, the two are still going strong.

Earlier this year, Connick recalled to Extra an odd moment when a "really famous guy" asked him if he cheats to his wife: "No, I don't,' and he said, 'How do you do that?' and I pointed at my ring and said, 'I worked really hard for this, and this is something that means a lot to me."
