A tech investor from Beverly Hills named Anthony Jabin paid $195,000 (about 7.5 million hryvnias) for a crypt next to his favorite actress Marilyn Monroe. He said he had always dreamed of being next to the Hollywood beauty.

The place next to the 1950s celebrity became a lot at the auction. This was reported by the BBC.

The space is also located near the tomb of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, who bought the vault next to Monroe's in 1992. Fans of the actress, who died in 1962 at the age of 36, regularly visit her in Los Angeles, California. Since Monroe's death, she has continued to be a source of fascination for many people.

Her personal belongings were sold along with Hefner's at an auction titled "Icons: Playboy, Hugh Hefner, and Marilyn Monroe". Along with the crypt, Anthony Jabin also purchased a bathing suit that once belonged to the actress, as well as an old Hefner bed.
