Marilyn Monroe

Grave Site BOMBARDED

with Marilyn Memorabilia

EXCLUSIVE

Marilyn Monroe Memorial
Celebrity grave sites are often marked with flowers and photos to mark a birthday or death anniversary ... but the memorial park that is home to Marilyn Monroe says they were completely overrun yesterday by fans of the late blonde bombshell.

A spokesman for the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery tells TMZ there was an "abnormally large" crowd on Friday -- her 86th birthday -- with people leaving items such as cards, photos, candles, statues, and flowers.

The spokesman tells TMZ they usually try and leave the items on the grave site for as long as possible (until they start to overrun neighboring spaces) but the clean-up yesterday for Marilyn went down faster than usual.

The Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery is also the final resting place of Janis Joplin, Peter Falk, Rodney Dangerfield, Natalie Wood, Farrah Fawcett ... and the list goes on.

August 5 marks the 50th anniversary of her death.

Now we have every 2 bit, unattractive actress out there saying "I love her!" and thinking they are her..........paging lindsay lohan. The only similarity between the beautiful Marilyn Monroe and the hideous looking lindsay("look at me!!!") lohan is that lohan will be die of a drug overdose too one day.

Well, at least it's nice for MM that Blohan has now moved onto desecrating Liz Taylor's memories.

And thats the truth    

I had read the Janis Joplin was cremated and her ashes were spread in the ocean here in California. I just looked it up to be sure and she was.

Janis Joplin's cremated remains are NOT interred at Westwood Cemetery. She was scattered at sea. Westwood only provided the cremation.
