Marilyn Monroe defied all kinds of social norms during her lifetime, especially when it came to society's expectations for women. Her unique identity fascinated the world, but also generated enormous criticism. While she was in the spotlight, much of her life remained secret. The public was obsessed with filling in the gaps, and people are still trying to put the missing pieces of her story together. Here, some of the craziest rumors about the icon.
Apparently some believe that Marilyn Monroe and JFK frequented Frank Sinatra's guest house, which was allegedly called the "sex shack."
While it is true JFK was pretty busy with presidential duties, some believe his stress level affected his performance. In his book titled, The Final Years of Marilyn Monroe: The Shocking True Story, Keith Badman credits Marilyn for the claim that JFK "made love like an adolescent."
Some like to foster the rumor that Marilyn called Jackie to inform her that JFK was going to leave Jackie for her. In Christopher Andersen's new book, These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie, apparently Jackie responded, "Marilyn, you'll marry Jack, that's great…and you'll move into the White House and you'll assume the responsibilities of first lady, and I'll move out and you'll have all the problems."
When it comes to Marilyn's death, there are a million rumors circulating. Some believe that Bobby Kennedy commissioned members of the mafia to kill Marilyn.
Gallery owner and memorabilia collector Keya Morgan claims that he possesses a sex tape involving Marilyn and JFK.
William Castleberry claims another sex tape featuring this threesome exists. Apparently it was going to be auctioned off, but Castleberry decided against it after a debt was allegedly paid off.
Some subscribe to the belief that Marilyn had rhinoplasty. They don't think she had a full nose job, however, and instead just had a bit removed.
Some claim that Marilyn underwent eloctrolysis in order to fix her widow's peak.
The Hollywood classic? The rumor is that Marilyn received silicone breast implants.
Some believe that in 1948, Marilyn's boyfriend Fred Karger took Marilyn to an orthodontist to get a retainer to fix her overbite and teeth bleaching.
In 2015, the rumor that Marilyn had fake teeth started circulating, believing that it was even mentioned in her autopsy report.
Some believe that Marilyn was killed by CIA agents to prevent her from exposing information. The information? JFK apparently told her that aliens had been discovered.
If it wasn't apparent by now, many believe that Marilyn was not only with JFK, but RFK as well. This rumor started circulating in the 1960's, and is still alive today.
Some believed so fully in their relationship, that they fostered the claim that Bobby told Marilyn he would leave his family for her.
Apparently Jean Kennedy Smith expressed her support of their relationship. In a letter that resurfaced in the last couple years, she allegedly wrote, "I understand that you and Bobby are the new item! We all think you should come with him when he comes back East!"
Some claim that Marilyn kept a little red book in which she chronicled all the famous family's secrets.
Some proponents of the previous theory subscribe to the belief that Bobby killed Marilyn and staged the death as an overdose due to the fact that she knew too much.
Some believe that Joe DiMaggio (Marilyn's husband during the time of her alleged affair with RFK) figured out about the affair and planned to killed Bobby.
After their divorce, Monroe and DiMaggio allegedly began to spend more and more time together and allegedly started dating again.
Rumor has it that DiMaggio intended to marry Marilyn again after they started dating.
Many believe that Marilyn was extremely smart, with an extraordinary IQ.
Some believed that when Monroe got pregnant, it was with Yves Montand's child instead of husband Arthur Miller's.
Apparently, files that indicate suspected Communist ties were recently uncovered.
After her friend Johnny Hyde—a famous Hollywood agent—died from a heart attack in 1950, Marilyn allegedly attempted suicide with a drug overdose.
Some believe that while Marilyn was the ultimate sex symbol for men, she needed some assistance.
Supporters of the previous rumor believe that Marilyn disliked having sex with her first husband so much that she locked herself in the bathroom for most of her marriage with Jim Dougherty. Apparently, a friend of Jim Dougherty said, "Jim told me privately that she spent most of their early marriage locked in the bathroom."
Jean Negulesco who directed Monroe in How to Marry a Millionaire, allegedly said, "Her whole existence was a search for identity, and her sexual identity was a complete lie."
Negulesco also claimed that Marilyn told him she had never had an orgasm with a man. He allegedly said, "She told me once she had never had an orgasm with a man in her entire life."
Some believe that Marilyn not only looked up to Grable as an actress, but was in love with her.
