“When I was 12, we lived on the same block as Judy Garland. Her daughter Lorna Luft and I became neighborhood buddies,” Katey wrote in the book. “Lorna’s mom had a lot of pills on her bedside table and slept past noon just like my mom. We hung tight. And, of course, I thought everyone’s mom took a lot of pills.”

Judy Garland Was Molested by 'Wizard of Oz' Munchkins, Her Ex-Husband Claimed

Judy Garland‘s ex-husband Sid Luft has made some shocking claims about her time on the set of The Wizard of Oz, which are featured in his new posthumous memoir.

In the book, Sid claimed that Judy was repeatedly molested by some of the actors playing the Munchkins in the classic movie musical The Wizard of Oz.

“They would make Judy’s life miserable on set by putting their hands under her dress … The men were 40 or more years old,” Sid wrote in the book (via People). “They thought they could get away with anything because they were so small.”

Sid and Judy were married from 1952 until 1965. He passed away in 2005.

Judy described the behavior of the Munchkin actors in an interview she gave in 1967, two years before her death. “They were little drunks … They got smashed every night, and they picked them up in butterfly nets,” she said.

Judy Garland's Remains Are Being Moved from N.Y. to L.A.

Judy Garland‘s resting place is being moved from New York to Los Angeles and her remains are currently en route to the west coast.

The legendary actress, who shot to stardom with her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, has been buried in the Big Apple since her death in 1969 at the age of 47.

Judy‘s remains are being moved to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles as her previous burial place did not have room for her children and grandchildren to be buried alongside her, according to People.

Some of the other celebs buried at the famed cemetery include Cecil B. Demille, Mickey Rooney, Douglas Fairbanks, and The Ramones founding members Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone.

Judy was the mother of three children – Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft, and Joey Luft.
