A new unauthorized biography of Diana Ross claims she slept her way to the top of Motown – in addition to her relationship with founder Berry Gordy – in a quest to become the label’s biggest star, reports the New

The Diana Ross few knew outside of the Motown colony was on a fast track to rise to the top from the first day she got to Motown; not incidentally, that was also the first day she knew who[m] she wanted to sleep with to keep up the momentum,” writes Mark Ribowsky in his unauthorized biography, The Supremes: A Saga of Motown Dreams, Success and Betrayal, out in July from Da Capo Press.

That, of course, turned out to be Berry Gordy, but only after” some other in-house romances,” the book says. “In no time, Ross would climb beyond [the Supremes] onto the A-list as a solo act, record six more Number 1 songs, and earn millions as well as top billing in two movies.”
