Did Elvis Presley And Marilyn Monroe Have A One-Night Stand?
The singer and the actress were in show business at the same time and there’s a rumor that they actually had a fling.
Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe: A one-time thing
As a former agent of the ‘King of Rock’n’Roll’ explained, he introduced Marilyn and Elvis to each other. Elvis Presley was known for his numerous affairs, so a hook-up between these two is not totally out of the question.
Elvis Presley’s former agent Byron Raphael claimed in the New York Daily Post that a secret meeting between the two took place in 1956. After Marilyn had rebuffed Elvis at first, they eventually met up in secret.
“I brought her to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and we went upstairs to his room. When he saw her, they came together and, without a word, started kissing. […] After two minutes they went into the bedroom,” Raphael said.
But the two – obviously – never fell in love with each other. The ‘King of Rock’n’Roll’ supposedly said about her later on: “She’s a nice gal, but a little tall for me.” Why did nobody ever know about their one-night stand?
Well, at the time Marilyn was still married to Arthur Miller and an affair like that would probably have ruined the careers of both Elvis and Marilyn. – Source
Why Frank Sinatra Believed Marilyn Monroe Was Murdered: A New Book Reveals
In the later years of his life, Frank Sinatra would often reminisce about his loves, his losses and the friends he missed most, including Marilyn Monroe.
While the events surrounding what really happened on August 4, 1962 when the star was found dead from a drug overdose remain a mystery, Sinatra’s close confidant and former road manager Tony Oppedisano, whose memoir Sinatra and Me: In The Wee Small Hours, is excerpted in this week’s PEOPLE, says the singer didn’t believe it was an accidental overdose. “Frank believed she was murdered,” he writes, “and he never got over it.”
According to Oppedisano, Sinatra and Monroe were close friends but not lovers. While Sinatra thought she was beautiful and funny, he writes, “Frank felt she was too troubled, too fragile, for him to sleep with and then walk away.”
She did however confide her most intimate secrets including her affairs with John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy.
When the affairs ended abruptly, he continues, “Marilyn told Frank she didn’t understand why they’d shut her out completely once she stopped having sex with them.”
The weekend before her death, the actress spent time at the famous Cal Neva Lodge, outside of Lake Tahoe, partially owned by Sinatra.
What the world didn’t know, the author reveals, was that she was there to spend time with her ex-husband Joe DiMaggio who was staying nearby and that she had decided to make a press announcement the following week that they were getting back together.
The news of a press conference sparked a rumor that Monroe was going to share details of her relationships with JFK and RFK. But, Oppedisano writes, “Frank said she’d never have spilled about the Kennedys because she still had feelings for [Jack.]”
And he says, “Frank believed if the press conference hadn’t been announced, she would have lived a lot longer.” – Source
