Marilyn Monroe Chest X-Ray Sold for $45,000

Someone must’ve really liked Marilyn Monroe – either that or chest X-ray – because they’ve shelled out $45,000 for it:

A 1954 x-ray of the stunning starlet’s chest sold at auction in Las Vegas on Sunday for a sizable $45,000. This was well above the estimated $800 to $1,200 it was expected to fetch.

The bizarre medical photograph was one of several of Monroe’s belongings that were up for bid at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino via Julien’s Auctions over the weekend.

“[The x-ray] was taken around the time she was believed to be pregnant, and rumor has it that she had a miscarriage,” President/CEO Darren Julien told the Daily News back in April.
