New Book Alleges Marilyn Monroe Had Lesbian Affair
A new book is alleging that screen bombshell Marilyn Monroe had a lesbian affair with the 16-year old president of her fan club.
Author Tony Jerris, in “Marilyn Monroe: My Little Secret“, claims that Jennifer Lawrence had a lesbian encounter with the sex symbol at Monroe’s apartment in 1955.
Lawrence says that Monroe was drinking champagne and taking the prescription drug Nebutal when she began kissing Lawrence’s thigh, culminating in kissing and other sexual play in Monroe’s bedroom.
An extract of which has been published in The Guardian.
“She had affairs with many eminent men –- baseball great Joe DiMaggio, playwright Arthur Miller, director Elia Kazan, actor Marlon Brando, singer Frank Sinatra, the Kennedy brothers –- and she married DiMaggio and Miller,” Banner writes. “Yet she desired women, had affairs with them, and worried that she might be lesbian by nature.”
She continues, “How could she be the world’s heterosexual sex goddess and desire women? How could she have the world’s most perfect body on the outside and have such internal imperfections? Why was she unable to bear a child? The adult Marilyn was haunted by these questions.”
Jerris says his revelation isn’t meant to imply that Monroe was a lesbian but rather a free spirit who experimented when it came to sex.
“She was just a free spirit,” he says. “She was a very open person.”
