Marilyn Monroe’s alleged sex tape with Kennedy brothers saved from auction
The tape was being due to be auctioned Tuesday to cover a $200,000 court judgment against him
The auction of Hollywood actress Marylin Monroe’s alleged sex tape with former U.S. President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert was called off, according to British newspaper the Daily Mail.
The tape, which was seized by police from William Castleberry, a former Hollywood bodyguard, was being due to be auctioned Tuesday to cover a $200,000 court judgment against him.
The auction was cancelled after an unknown person covered Castleberry’s costs following the announcement of the public sale on Saturday.
No information about the identity of the person who paid the debt was given, Castleberry’s attorneys said.
The 56-year-old man was slapped with a fine of $200,000 after he allegedly sold a fake statue in Visalia, California.
He had been making payments to satisfy the debt, but lawyers demanded a $90,000 balloon payment that he could not afford to pay.
Rumors have run for years that Monroe, whose death in 1962 was ruled as a “probable suicide,” had had affairs with both of the Kennedy brothers.
