Jackie Kennedy suspected Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson to be the man behind the plan to assassinate her husband. She knew about JFK's numerous extra-marital affairs with White House interns. She had secret lovers of her own, including a Hollywood actor.
These are the secrets that are rumored to be revealed when tapes the former first lady recorded just months after JFK's assassination are made public. They were recorded by historian Arthur Schlesinger Junior in 1963 and have been kept inside a vault within the Kennedy Library in Boston.
Jackie had requested that they remained private until 50 years after her death, but her daughter, Caroline Kennedy, has agreed to release the tapes early. The Daily Mail says Caroline may have handed over the tapes to ABC now in exchange for the network dropping its drama series about the Kennedys.
In the interviews, Onassis reportedly discusses her suspicion that Lydon B. Johnson plotted her husband's assassination with a group of Texas tycoons and gunman Lee Harvey Oswald.
She also goes into detail about her husbands affairs and even tells a story about finding a pair of panties in the bedroom she shared with him. But she didn't let it get her down too much. Kennedy may reveal in the tapes that she also had affairs, one with Hollywood star William Holden and another with Fiat founder Gianni Agnelli. However, the couple had patched things up and was hoping to have more children just before JFK was assassinated.
What else does the former first lady reveal about one of the most mysterious periods in American history? We'll have to wait till mid-September to find out.
