Jacqueline Kennedy was poised to be the first sitting First Lady to divorce a president when he was assassinated, a new book claims.
Fed up with John F. Kennedy’s blatant philandering, she saw no other way out but to dump the Camelot prince, reveals explosive unauthorized biography “Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: A Life Beyond Her Wildest Dreams,” obtained by the Daily Mail
Jackie confided that Marilyn Monroe’s sexy serenade to the president at his 1962 Madison Square Garden birthday bash was the straw that broke her marriage’s back.
Since their honeymoon, JFK had kept a harem of honeys and an orgy pad at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington that fueled Jackie’s desire to split.
“I just can’t see myself spending the rest of my life with Jack Kennedy. It’s not going to happen,” she confessed to her mother as far back as 1956, the book claims.
Kennedy’s father, Joe, interceded to save the marriage as his son, then a Massachusetts senator, set his sights on the White House.
Joe Kennedy summoned his daughter-in-law to the Le Pevillon restaurant in the Ritz Tower Hotel in Manhattan and offered her a $1 million check to stay in the marriage, authors Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince write.
Jackie responded that it would cost him $20 million if her husband “brings home any venereal disease from any of his sluts,” claims the book, set to be released Saturday.
