The 41-year-old reality star Kim Kardashian was recently gifted a lock of Marilyn Monroe’s hair by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

Kardashian was happy to be gifted an actual historical piece before her appearance at the Met Gala.

Marilyn Monroe historian Scott Fortner discredited the claim that it was actually a lock of Monroe’s hair.

Fortner also mentioned that the hair was cut from her scalp by a Mr. Kenneth and not Robert Champion as claimed by Ripley’s website.

He also criticized her for wearing the dress worn by Monroe for her “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” performance at the 2022 Met Gala.

He said that it was concerning as the dress was specially made to fit Monroe and no one else.

Monroe’s estate noted that Monroe would have approved of Kardashian re-wearing her dress.

Kardashian was very grateful to Ripley’s for letting her borrow the dress.

The dress was bought by Ripley’s in 2016 for $4.81 million.
