Man in Photo is Not JFK

12/28/2009 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ received an email from someone who said the photo we posted showing a man appearing to be John F. Kennedy on a yacht with naked women was actually a photo from a 1967 Playboy photo shoot.



We have contacted Playboy and a rep says the photo did indeed run in one of its 1967 issues. We are trying to get a copy and will update as soon as we get the info.

UPDATE: 2:34 PM ET
We've now confirmed the photo was part of a Playboy spread in 1967. The image published in Playboy was published in color.

UPDATE: 1:11 PM ET
A rep from Playboy tells TMZ the photo ran as part of story titled, "Playboy's Charter Yacht Party: How to Have a Ball on the Briny with an Able-Bodies Complement of Ship's Belles." She says the photo was taken on one of the islands that make up the Grenadines (Petit Rameau).

Sometimes it is hard to tell real from fake. You would know it was real if you could find Lem in the picture. JFK never left the USA without Lem at his side.

Photo can't be of a 1967 playboy shoot with JFK..... He was already dead!!!! If it is a playboy shoot, that's not JFK.

It ran in a playboy so essentially TMZ is just reporting news about old news. Why not report on Abraham Lincoln's death too like you're the first one.

Gee, TMZ, you blew it AGAIN!! Now, don't you feel more than just foolish. You probably let "Mike" research this and no wonder finding out now the photo is bogus. Radaronline is blowing you away, each day.

I give TMZ a small amount of credit for trying to get out ahead by checking on things once it appeared you were about to get caught with your pants down. A small amount of credit. Very small.

Somewhere James Cameron is laughing.

Playboy verified it was in '67? NOT!!!! Impossible...JFK was murdered in '63 remember? Or was that a hoax too?

Oh God TMZ! Hope you didn't pay too much for this. Is anyone getting fired for this mess up?
