To publish for the fiftieth anniversary of her tragic death, this definitive account dispels the rumors and sets the record straight on her last two years
Keith Badman delves into the reality of Monroe’s last days in this surprising, and painstakingly researched biography. Dispelling some of the most pervasive beliefs as well as bringing light to others, Badman reveals that: • Monroe had a one-night stand with JFK at Bing Crosby’s house, but the rumors about her on-going affairs with JFK and RFK were untrue • Her father was not Martin Edward Mortensen but a man named Charles Stanley Gifford, who abandoned Marilyn’s mother when she was three months pregnant • Monroe was tricked into admitting herself into a psychiatric institute where she was treated like a prisoner in a mental asylum until Joe DiMaggio pulled strings for her release • A drunken Monroe was sexually exploited by mobsters at a Lake T ahoe hotel co-owned by Frank Sinatra, who had photos of the incident destroyed Badman sifts the truth from the gossip to provide a perfect companion to the hugely successful book, Fragments. For those who think they know the truth about Marilyn Monroe, think again.
