Do you believe in a curse? We know a person who does. It’s the author of a documentary book “The Kennedy Curse: Why Tragedy Has Haunted America’s First Family for 150 Years,” Edward Klein.

Did you know that John F. Kennedy Jr. was thinking about a divorce just before the fatal airplane crash? In his book, Klein reveals the ‘dark secrets’ of the first family.


Happy newlyweds

John F. Kennedy Jr., the son of President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Onassis, was a successful lawyer and journalist. Some people predicted him a great future in politics, but Kennedy Jr. chose another life path.

The marriage of Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette made front-pages worldwide. The man who could marry any woman in the world had chosen as his bride one who was not rich or famous.

On September 21, 1996, John and Carolyn exchanged their vows in a private ceremony on a wild and beautiful Georgia island. Sound like a fairytale, doesn’t it? But even fairytales may come to an end.

Troubled marriage

In his book “The Kennedy Curse: Why Tragedy Has Haunted America’s First Family for 150 Years,” Edward Klein reveals a little-known secret behind John and Carolyn’s marriage.

The couple had been living apart for months pretending happiness and hiding their conflicts from the public eyes. Only close friends of the family knew that John was on the verge of calling it quits.

The book says the first troubles in ‘heaven’ began after their disagreements about having kids. John dreamed to become a father, while Carolyn did not want to have children. The author also stressed on a difficulty for Bessette to deal with the increased media attention surrounding her husband.

Divorce talks

Just two days before the fatal airplane crash, John and Carolyn reportedly met to discuss why their relationship had "soured.” It was an idea of Carolyn’s sister Lauren, who thought she could help the couple make things right after all.


According to reports published after their deaths, Bessette and Kennedy were contemplating divorce in a month preceding their passing. Who knows, maybe, if not the fatal crash, they still could have a chance to fix everything.


Kennedy, his wife, and sister died when the airplane he was flying crashed into the Atlantic Ocean while he was on his way to cousin's wedding. Next year, it will be 20th anniversary since the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette.
