Meet The Woman Who Claims To Be Marilyn Monroe and JFK's Love Child
Gladys Baker Morris, a 53-year old woman from Burbank, California has presented a paternity action lawsuit this morning before the California state court, alleging that she is the biological daughter of Marilyn Monroe and former President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. She spent most of her life believing that Marilyn Monroe’s cousin, Meredith Baker, was her biological mother. But it was revealed to her in March 2014, while on her deathbed, her “mother” told her that she had actually been adopted, and that her biological parents were massively famous.
“My mother confessed to me on her deathbed, that my real mother was in fact, Marilyn Monroe,” Ms. Morris told reporters. “She told me that Marilyn was afraid that the Kennedy brothers would have her and her baby killed if they learned of her pregnancy, so my mother had given birth in secret and hidden me away as soon as I was born.” - Gladys Baker Morris
Ms. Morris underwent a lot of research to clarify her origins and found out that she had indeed been adopted. It took her a total of 18 months of legal proceedings before she was finally able to obtain her adoption record, including her birth certificate. The birth certificate is believed to be very fantastic which has become the cornerstone of her legal claim, clearly states that she is the daughter of Norma Jeane Mortenson, better known as Marilyn Monroe, and of the assassinated U.S. President, John F. Kennedy. It is believed that Marilyn Monroe and President John Fitzgerald Kennedy are known to have had an affair in 1961 to 1962, and Ms. Morris claims she was born from that extramarital relationship. Some persistent rumors, originating from her gynecologist, Dr. Leon Krohn, have suggested that Marilyn Monroe had become pregnant once again in 1961, and given birth to a baby girl in June 1962. Due to this development, many people hopes that the court procedures launched by Ms. Morris will finally bring an end to more than 50 years of speculations regarding the existence and identity of this mysterious child.
Gladys Baker Morris must now wait for the results of the DNA tests, If her claims turn out to be true, she could the only natural heir to the estate of Marilyn Monroe, which is estimated to be worth more than $100 million and still makes more than $5M each year. And she confirms that she intends to sue the Marilyn Monroe Foundation over rights and royalties, once the DNA test confirms her identity.
