YANKEES legend Mickey Mantle allegedly vomited while performing a sex act on actress Angie Dickinson.
Gossip columnist Ben Widdicombe revealed Mantle’s embarrassing moment in his upcoming book “Gatecrasher,” Page Six reported.
He wrote that a former Daily News editor previously told him: “That sofa you’re sitting on right now…
“Mickey Mantle sat on that very sofa and told me how he once went on a date with Angie Dickinson, took her home, and was so drunk that he threw up while he was [performing a sex act on her].”
Widdicombe’s book will be released on July 7.
Simon & Schuster describes the book as: “A smart, gossipy, and very funny examination of celebrity culture from New York’s premiere social columnist.”
Mantle – nicknamed “The Commerce Comet and The Mick” – played for the New York Yankees from 1951 to 1968.
He was later inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.
The sports star died of cancer on August 13, 1995, at 63 years old.
Earlier this week, Page Six reported that Mantle once handed sports reporter Diane Shah a card that read: “Wanna f***?”
In Shah’s memoir “A Farewell to Arms, Legs & Jockstraps,” she recounts an interview where Mantle greened while allegedly reaching into his jacket and pulling out the greeting card.
Dickinson – who was born in Kulm, North Dakota, in 1931 – was a Hollywood sex symbol of the 1950s and 60s.
Last year, Dickinson opened up on “CBS Sunday Morning” about how she came close to marrying Frank Sinatra after the two worked together in 1960.
“We got very close to getting married in 1964,” the actress said.
Dickinson was later married to Burt Bacharach from 1965 until 1981. The former couple had a daughter together, Lea Nikki Bacharach, but she died in 2007 at age 40.
She is known for her roles in Ocean’s Eleven (1960), Dressed to Kill (1980), Rio Bravo (1959).
“If I was a sex symbol, I was very comfortable with it because it was just what I was,” Dickinson, now 88, said in a TV interview in 2011.
“I didn’t have to embellish it or work on it, or change my style.
“But then I didn’t want to be just a sex symbol, I wanted to be an actress.”
