February 22, 2018
John F. Kennedy was no stranger to allegations and rumors over his infidelity and extra-marital affairs, but it was Marilyn Monroe, by far, who held the public's attention as one of his possible mistresses.
Monroe's birthday song
At the president's request, Marilyn Monroe sang "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to JFK for his 45th birthday, in Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962, ten days before his real birthday. This performance was regarded by many as the proof that an affair has begun because Jackie Kennedy was not at her own husband's birthday party.
