The Kray brothers are the subject of a new movie, Legend, starring Tom Hardy in both roles. Although Ronnie Kray was said to be openly bisexual (some even say he was gay), his twin brother Reggie was known to be straight. In the trailer for The Krays: Kill Order, a documentary about the notorious East End gangsters, a close connection to the twins claims that both of the brothers liked men.
“They were both bisexual,” says Maureen Flanagan, a hairdresser who had Violet Kray, Ronnie and Reggie’s mother, as one of her clients.
Flanagan also points out Ronnie’s hatred for Reggie’s wife, Frances Shea. According to the documentary, Ronnie was suspected of staging Frances’ murder to make it seem like a suicide. Witnesses claim that Reggie’s marriage was a lie, and that he was actually in love with her brother. Talk about some family drama!
