The Shocking Details of Marilyn Monroe Death

She Was Due to Remarry Three Days After Her Death

Joe DiMaggio and Monroe originally married on January 14, 1954, but their marriage only lasted a short 274 days – they divorced in October 1954. They remained friends through the years, and when Monroe was admitted into a psychiatric hospital in 1961, she turned to DiMaggio to secure her release. According to biographers Norman Mailer and Donald Spoto, the pair was due to remarry on August 8, 1962, three days after Monroe passed away. Following her untimely death, DiMaggio sent roses to her grave several times a week for twenty years.
