It's been more than 20 years since John F. Kennedy Jr. died in a tragic plane crash, but an OK! source says Daryl Hannah is still carrying a torch for her former flame — and it’s not sitting well with her husband, Neil Young.
Hannah, 60, who tied the knot with the rocker, 75, in 2018, "never got over [John’s] death," spills the source, adding that the actress — who dated the political scion on and off until their split in 1994 — often pores over scrapbooks of their time together.
"She seems haunted by her memories and wonders what could have been had their romance endured a bit longer." (John began dating wife Carolyn shortly after their split.) That "doesn’t sit well" with Young, the source adds. "He's had just about all he can take. Daryl insists she loves her life with him, but John Jr. will always be the elephant in the room."
Kennedy Jr. and Hannah were on and off for six years. "She often wonders whether they ever would’ve found their way back to each other," shares the source.
Kennedy Jr. died on July 16, 1999, when his aircraft crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Massachusetts. His wife, Carolyn, and his sister-in-law, Lauren Bessette, were also onboard and met the same fate.
The official investigation of the crash by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) revealed that the plane crashed due to spatial distortion which descended over water at night. Kennedy Jr. was only certified to fly under visual flight rules and didn't hold an instrument rating. The complications in the weather were also said to be factors contributing to the crash.
