Source: Lenya, by David Farneth, Elmar Juchem, Dave Stein + Encyclopedia Britannica (for Brecht)
Brecht's companion was not Lotte Lenya (Lenya was the wife of composer Kurt Weill), but he had a wife, Helene Weigel, and many women assistants (E. Hauptmann, etc.). He knew Lenya and admired her for her talent, but I doubt they had a relationship closer than friendship.
