Fox's father Patrick, a former carpenter, managed her career until 1991, when Fox hired accountants to trace over £1 million that she believed he had embezzled from her accounts. She then sued her father, who by then had divorced and remarried, and in May 1995 she was awarded a £363,000 court settlement. Patrick Fox died in 2000, at which time he and Fox had not spoken for almost a decade.
In 1994, it was reported that Fox had become a born-again Christian. That year, she played at the Christian arts festival Greenbelt.
In the late 1980s Fox became romantically linked with Australian con man Peter Foster. They began dating but she turned down his marriage proposal. She had also a relationship with Paul Stanley, guitarist and singer of the rock band Kiss. Rumours regarding Fox's sexual orientation began to surface in 1999 when she judged a lesbian beauty pageant, and rumours started to circulate that the woman she resided with – Cris Bonacci, the Australian former guitarist for the rock band Girlschool – was in fact her lover. However though the two women did reside together, neither has stated publicly that they were lovers. Prior to Bonacci, Fox shared her home with Debbie Connor, but again it has not been stated by Fox that she and Connor were romantically linked, and they have said they were "best mates".
In February 2003, she made a statement about her personal life: "I have slept with other women but I've not been in love before Myra Stratton. People say I'm gay... I don't know what I am. All I know is that I'm in love with Myra . I love her completely and want to spend the rest of my life with her."
Fox said that part of her reluctance to come out was due to fears of how some of her fans might react to her being in relationship with a woman, as she had already had to deal with obsessed fans and stalkers. In August 2009, Samantha Fox announced her plans to have a civil partnership with Stratton.

Famous quotes containing the words life and/or personal:
“The city is loveliest when the sweet death racket begins. Her own life lived in defiance of nature, her electricity, her frigidaires, her soundproof walls, the glint of lacquered nails, the plumes that wave across the corrugated sky. Here in the coffin depths grow the everlasting flowers sent by telegraph.”
—Henry Miller (18911980)
“Life is not an easy matter.... You cannot live through it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness.”
—Leon Trotsky (18791940)
