Kitaen dated Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby while she was still in high school and even followed his band to L.A. in the late ’70s. She was featured on the album cover of the band’s album “Out of the Cellar” and their debut EP “Ratt.”
Tawny’s personal life was rocky. She married Whitesnake’s lead singer, David Coverdale, back in 1989, but the marriage only lasted 2 years. She went on to marry baseball star Chuck Finley — with whom she had 2 daughters — and the end of that relationship proved disastrous. Finley claimed she repeatedly kicked him in the face with her high heels and she was charged with domestic violence. He filed for divorce 3 days later. She cut a plea and entered a domestic violence counseling program.
