A huge sale of Marilyn Monroe items are going on the auction block. One of those items is a letter to Marilyn from Jean Kennedy Smith, sister to JFK and RFK. She wrote to Marilyn to invite her to make a trip back east with Bobby.
‘Understand that you and Bobby are the new item! We all think you should come with him when he comes back East!’

Rumors over the pair’s relationship started to fly after they were pictured together at a number of events – however, there was no concrete evidence at hand to confirm to they were an item.
Accounts from those present at JFK’s 40th birthday party in 1962, at which the actress sung ‘Happy Birthday,’ say she went after Bobby – even in front of his wife Ethel.
‘She literally pinned him against he wall, and she had him trapped,’ claimed pollster Lou Harris.
‘Ethel got so disgusted. When she got him home, she said, “That’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen.”
