Laurence Kirwan believed his 42-year-old wife was having an affair with Kennedy, whom she met at a Westchester gym, a confidant of the surgeon told The Post.
While Kennedy didn’t have a gal in every port, he did seem to have friends in many places.
The first is “Curb Your Enthusiasm” actress Cheryl Hines, whom Kennedy began dating the year they both filed for divorce. The other is Greenwich, Conn., homemaker Chelsea Chapman Kirwan, who has been romantically linked to Kennedy in her headline-grabbing divorce battle.
Kennedy’s late wife, Mary Richardson, shared several lists of suspected “other women” with a friend two months before she committed suicide in May 2012.
“Robert Strong” was a favorite pseudonym, she told her friend.
The couple, who had married in 1994, was in the midst of a nasty divorce when Richardson, 52, hanged herself at their home in Bedford, Westchester County.
