- The ‘disturbing’ phone call allegedly occurred after JFK and Monroe’s weekend affair. Jackie was stunned after hearing Monroe’s voice down the phone
- President Kennedy was rumored to have had an on-and-off affair with the iconic actress for years until 1962
Marilyn Monroe made a ‘disturbing’ phone call asking Jackie Kennedy if she could speak to JFK just days after their fling at Bing Crosby’s home in Palm Springs, an author has claimed.
J. Randy Taraborrelli, who wrote ‘Jackie: Public, Private, Secret,’ claims that Kennedy answered their personal phone in their bedroom in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts and heard the actress on the other end of the line.
Her husband President John F. Kennedy was rumored to have had an on-and-off affair with the iconic actress for years until 1962. The author suggests that their sexual relationship only occurred on the weekend of March 24, 1962.
According to Taraborrelli, after speaking to multiple sources, Jackie told family members that there was a ‘haunting quality to Marilyn’s voice that really stuck with her.’

Taraborrelli’s book claims that Jackie Kennedy told her mother the call was ‘off-putting,’ and Monroe’s voice was ‘sad,’ which she found ‘disturbing’
In April 1962, Monroe called and asked, ‘Is Jack home?’ to which Kennedy said he wasn’t, and then asked who was calling.
The caller said: ‘Marilyn Monroe. Is this Jackie?’
When Kennedy said it was, Monroe asked if she’d tell the president that she called. Kennedy asked what it was regarding, and Monroe said it was ‘nothing in particular,’ the book said.
The claims were made in a new biography titled ‘Jackie: Public, Private, Secret’ written by J. Randy Taraborrelli
Monroe ‘just wanted to say hello.’
Jackie Kennedy said she would pass on the message and hung up.
Taraborrelli’s book, seen by Fox News, claims that Jackie Kennedy told her mother the call was ‘off-putting,’ and Monroe’s voice was ‘sad,’ which she found ‘disturbing.’
The call was made on a private number, and went straight to the phone in the Kennedys’ bedroom.
This was the only line that was not wired or monitored by Secret Service agents.
Jackie Kennedy was said to be confused by how Monroe managed to get through the private line.
Taraborrelli wrote in his book: ‘Jackie would never be the type to tell Marilyn, ‘How dare you called here. She was not that kind of personality. She was more the type to be polite and hang up, which is exactly what she did.
‘Had it been Elizabeth Taylor or any other movie star, there wouldn’t have been much intrigue to it. Even if it was one of the other women JFK was having an affair with, there still wouldn’t have been much intrigue.
‘Anything that Marilyn touched has always created a point of interest.
‘Jackie felt Marilyn was too vulnerable, too weak to be played with by JFK or by anybody else for that matter.’
Monroe was dead three months after she famously sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to President Kennedy. The performance caused one gossip columnist to remark: ‘It seemed like Marilyn was making love to the president in front of 40 million Americans’

Speaking of JFK and Monroe’s weekend affair, the author said: ‘But it was really just a weekend.
‘JFK had so many affairs that Jackie likely thought it was more than just a weekend.
‘But we should understand that Jackie really didn’t know the extent of JFK’s relationship with Marilyn.’
Rumors about President Kennedy’s affair with Monroe were fueled by her sultry performance for his 45th birthday at Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962 just three months before she died.

Jackie Kennedy also reportedly confronted her therapist when she discovered that she also treated Marilyn Monroe who had an affair with her husband President John F Kennedy.
The former First Lady began seeing psychiatrist Dr. Marianne Kris in the 1970s after her husband’s assassination, according to ‘Jackie: Public, Private, Secret.’
But she was left furious when she found out her therapist had also conducted sessions with her love rival Monroe.

Kris is said to have asked Jackie ‘How is this relevant’ when she was challenged on it and Jackie replied: ‘How is that not relevant?’.
Jackie was married to Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis when she was seeing the therapist.
The pair were discussing ‘Mrs. Onassis’s ongoing PTSD, over President Kennedy’s assassination in Texas in November 1963. She was sat next to him in the motorcade at the time of his death.
‘They addressed Mrs. Onassis’s ongoing PTSD over the assassination, as well as certain nagging issues about their marriage,’ Kris’ secretary, from 1972 to 1974, Patricia Atwood told author J. Randy Taraborrelli.
‘He went out in a blaze of glory, Mrs. Onassis said, according to one of the notes I read.
‘The way he died had completely robbed her of the right to hate him, she said. Next to that entry, Dr. Kris wrote that her grief was anything but, as she put it, ‘tidy.”
Jackie was told that Kris had also treated Monroe and she became angry and confronted her
Jackie soon found that Kris has once treated Monroe and she became angry.
‘When Jackie confronted her, Kris said she felt no responsibility to inform her about any former patients in the same way she’d never reveal that she’d ever treated Jackie,’ Taraborrelli wrote.
‘Marianne asked, ‘How is this relevant?’ to which Jackie responded, ‘How is that not relevant?’.
The relationship has never been confirmed but it quickly became one of the biggest political scandals in US history.
The pair are said to have only met four times between 1961 and 1962, according to Donald Spoto’s 2001 biography of Monroe which also states they had one sexual fling.
But other accounts claim the affair began in the early 1950s when President Kennedy was then just a Senator from Massachusetts, and a relative unknown in Hollywood.
They were reportedly first introduced by Peter Lawford as Monroe was close friends with him and his wife, the president’s sister, Pat Kennedy Lawford.
But President Kennedy is said to have essentially passed off the actress to his younger brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who was also married at the time, after he grew tired of the affair.
