Back in the past, a flirting Marilyn Monroe put her arms around Frank Sinatra's neck at Dean Martin's 44th birthday party in a casino-city, Las Vegas. Like with many men in Monroe's life, her romance with the American singer was no different.

After their divorces from former partners, Marilyn and Frank found close to each other over their mutual problems with constant insomnia, gruesome loneliness, and disturbing insecurity. The diva once addressed their affair to gossip columnist Louella Parsons, saying: "He has always been very kind to me."

According to her maid Lena Pepitone, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe began dating regularly in the late 1950s but heated it up in 1961. The My Funny Valentine hitmaker tried to keep the relationship under the hat, but it was difficult considering their rising popularity.

Manager Milt Ebbins recalled how much Frank loved Marilyn as always worried about her well-being and would swim every ocean and climb every mountain to protect her. Sinatra invited Monroe in August 1962 to Cal-Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe and saw how much depressed she looked like.

Ebbins added:

I think he proposed to her. He loved her, and he would have done anything to save her.

Sadly, the Some Like It Hot star died a week after the meeting from an apparent overdose. Frank Sinatra was shocked for weeks. At her funeral, when Monroe's ex Joe DiMaggio didn't let him attend, the singer said:

I loved her too. No one can say I didn't love her too.
