A sex tape of Marilyn Monroe having intercourse with not just one Kennedy, but two is reportedly going to be auctioned off.
The never-before-seen reel of Monroe with former President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy has been in the hands of memorabilia collector William Castleberry until it was seized from him as part of a lawsuit.
“It’s real. I had it for years and I never released it out of respect for Joe DiMaggio,” Castleberry, 56, told Radar Online. “I’m just sick about it and I’m desperately trying to raise money to get it back.”
Shot on 8 mm film, the tape will be auctioned off on Tuesday by the Tulare County Sheriff in California with a minimum bid of $200,000.
Attorney Ryan Sullivan, who is representing the plaintiffs in the case against Castleberry, said, “I have no idea what is on the tape, it could be what Mr. Castleberry says, or it could be a Disney cartoon. The only way anyone will ever know is if they buy it and view it.”
The former Hollywood bodyguard has until Tuesday morning to pay over $200,000 to satisfy the judgment and get the tape back, but if he fails to do this, it will go straight to auction.
“I had hoped to give it all to a museum, or even open one myself,” Castleberry said. “If I don’t get it back, well, okay. It’s just stuff and I can start over.”
Other items William collected were a signed Babe Ruth jersey and autographed books of Thomas Edison—both of which were also seized.
