Why do you think that Judy and Gene never got together in real life? Did they even talk to one another even after Judy left MGM? And one last question I have is what did Gene say about Judy after her tragic passing? Did he even talked about her later in his life? Sorry about so many questions.
When Judy and Gene first came into regular contact with each other, both were already married (Judy to David, Gene to Betsy). Judy’s marriage was already rocky though, and her marriage to David had come to an end more or less by ‘42. Although they obviously really enjoyed being around each other, I don’t think Gene was one to stray away from his family, plus Judy was always moving, she had that much work!
After Judy left MGM they indeed saw less of each other, as Gene I think was still at the studio and Judy embarked on her concert career. They probably did see each other sometimes at various events such as the charity concert below:
[At The Share Benefit, May 23rd, 1963.]
Gene Kelly was also a scheduled guest on the Judy Garland Show, but this never ended up happening. Gene had always said very lovely things about Judy. He credits Judy with getting him into the movies and guiding him through his first film role. He inducted Judy into the hall of fame and he appeared to be very shaken when Judy passed. I think he lost a very close friend that day.
Hope this helped!
