DiMaggio blamed Monroe’s drug and alcohol addiction, and her death from an apparent overdose, on the Kennedy brothers and crooner Frank Sinatra, his confidant Morris Engelberg told Vanity Fair in 2000.

Three years later, when he wrote his book, DiMaggio: Setting the Record Straight, Engelberg went further, claiming that DiMaggio had told him, about the Kennedys, "They murdered the one person I loved."

For years, conspiracy theorists have speculated Monroe might have been killed by the Kennedys because they wanted to keep their affairs with her a secret—and/or she knew too much about their various political secrets.

Engelberg said that the ex-husband who never forgot her, DiMaggio, shed no tears when the Kennedys were assassinated.

According to his book, DiMaggio believed "they got what they deserved."

His legal eagle Engelberg recalled that DiMaggio refused to shake Robert Kennedy’s hand when they met at New York’s Yankee Stadium .

Just a few years before he died, the former athlete agreed to go to the Kennedy Center only if no member of the Kennedy family would be there, the attorney remembered.

When Engelberg asked him why, DiMaggio replied, "What they did to me will never be forgotten."

Lovesick DiMaggio mourned Monroe until the day he died. Every week, for more than 20 years, he arranged for her favorite flowers – red roses – to be put next to her grave three times a week.

He never married again and died in 1999 at age 84.

Pal Engelberg said that the Yankees star died saying, "I’ll finally get to see Marilyn."
