The Outrageous Rita Cadilac Biography
Rita Cadilac, stage name of Rita Coutinho (Rio de Janeiro, June 13, 1954) is a porn actress, dancer and singer from Brazil. Her stage name was in honor to Rita Cadilac, who was a known French dancer during the 60s. Her family was poor and she did not meet her parents. Rita’s paternal grandmother was the one who raised her, she was her only relative, because her mother had no family.
At age 15, her grandmother forced her to marry. She became pregnant and had a child. She lived with her husband until the age of 17. She got divorced because of the betrayals and aggressions. Meanwhile, her grandmother died. Thus Rita Cadilac was left alone as a teenager; she could not even study. Her only way out was prostitution, but did not even know what that was about. She left her son in an orphanage and began whoring. The boy’s father did not know anything or asked about their child. She hated this life and with 20 years left, a she met a dancer and they became friends. This is when Rita ventured onto Brazilian music and dance performances in the U.S.
