She then married playwright Arthur Miller on June 29, 1956, and they divorced in 1961. Marilyn reportedly also had romantic relationships with Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, President John F. Kennedy, and Robert F. Kennedy, and it is rumored that she had been planning to remarry DiMaggio on August 8th, 1962, which ended up being the day of her funeral.
