These nude images of Jackie Kennedy Onassis were taken on a Greek beach in after her own husband tipped off photographers with her exact location, a new book has claimed. The images, which were splashed across magazines and newspapers worldwide, were taken as the couple endured a turbulent marriage fraught with infidelity, absences and family scorn. It has emerged that the photographers were tipped off by her own husband, Aristotle Onassis.
The pictures, which shocked the world when they were published, showed the glamorous former Mrs Kennedy sunbathing nude and practising yoga, on the private island paradise of Skorpios, which belonged to her new husband, the Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. Mrs Onassis, who was one of the world's most photographed women at the time, was able to escape the glare of publicity on the secluded island. But Garritano, who still runs a photo agency in Rome revealed how in the summer of he managed to gain access to Skorpios by befriending a local and then disguising himself as a gardener. After hearing a rumour that Mrs Onassis sunbathed nude on one of the beaches, he took a boat out and moored it near some undergrowth where he was able to remain hidden.
Let's take a look at five things you might not have known about Jackie O. Jacqueline Bouvier came to international prominence when JFK became president, but she very nearly had a different husband. In December , she became engaged to another man, John G. Husted was a Yale grad, a stockbroker, and a member of the same upper class of New York society as the Bouvier family. The engagement didn't last long, though.
In the years after President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Jackie, his stunning widow, had many suitors and well-heeled escorts. These excerpts from "The Good Son" describe how Onassis cheated on Jackie O with opera star Maria Callas from the outset of their marriage and then, although the couple never divorced before his own death in , committed a final incredible act of betrayal. Five minutes after Bobby's death was announced, Onassis called his closest friend, Costa Gratsos, in Athens. Just days after Bobby was laid to rest, Ari arrived at Hammersmith Farm with his daughter, Christina, in tow. He was repulsive, of course, but it wasn't just the money.
