However, neither was true.

"In this groundbreaking work, J. Randy Taraborrelli draws detailed and sympathetic portraits of the women so influential in the life of the actress, including her mother, her foster mother, and her legal guardian. He tells the heartbreaking story of a world-famous daughter dealing secretly with a parent's severe paranoid schizophrenia and exposes the shocking scope of Marilyn's own mental deterioration and her desperate attempts to help both herself and her mother."" ;
