In 1961, Suze met the then little known folk singer Bob Dylan at a live radio folk extravaganza broadcast from Riverside Church, where he was performing. She was seventeen and Bob was twenty. They immediately began dating. Bob has said their first meeting, "She was the most erotic thing I had ever seen". She and Bob lived together in Greenwich Village for two years, and Bob wrote several of his most famous love songs for her. However, their relationship ended badly when he left her for folk singer Joan Baez. In 1963, Suze had discovered she was pregnant with Bob's child, but decided to get an abortion. In 1972, she married Enzo Bartoccioli and they had a son who now works as a guitarist. Suze and her husband currently live in New York, where she teaches art at the Parsons School of Design.
