John Randall Taraborrelli's new book on Marilyn Monroe paints a picture of the actor's drug-fuelled final months, her fixation with John F Kennedy, and the shock friends like Frank Sinatra felt at her downward spiral, the Daily Mail reports. Few months before her death, the screenwriter for her last film found her in a drug-induced coma, 'almost naked' and 'almost dead', he says.
One of Monroe's friend blames her breakdown on Kennedy. “JFK. That's what was wrong. She'd just been jilted by the President of the United States. It was Kennedy. That's why,” the source says. Less than two weeks before she died, Monroe’s erratic behaviour and blatant drug use alarmed friend and sometimes-lover Sinatra to the point that he threw her out of his Cal-Neva Lodge, another source says.
