Among the most recent release of government documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was a memo alerting JFK's younger brother of a 1964 book release which detailed allegations of his "intimate relationship" with actress Marilyn Monroe, USA Today reported. 

Robert Kennedy, who was then-attorney general, was warned of Monroe's allegations via FBI memo, according to the report.

The book, "The Strange Death of Marilyn Monroe," by Frank A. Capell, details an affair with Monroe and allegations Robert Kennedy was in Monroe's apartment when she died of overdose, while the FBI memos stated Kennedy was in San Francisco with his wife when she died, according to USA Today.

The memos also state the writer claimed the unpublicized affair "was well known to her friends and reporters in the Hollywood area."

"Much of the information furnished by Mr. Capell has been of a very questionable nature and not subject to corroboration," the FBI wrote, according to the reported memos. "He has consistently refused to reveal the alleged sources of his information. The FBI said it would 'promptly' inform Kennedy about any more information related to the book."

Monroe's death, as that of President Kennedy's, has been shrouded in controversy and conspiracy theories.

Amazon lists "The Strange Death of Marilyn Monroe," for a whopping $140.09 price tag.

"Books that expose these kinds of facts, mysteriously become rare," the listing reads.
