New book says Sinatra spent night with Jackie O.

A new book on Frank Sinatra claims he spent a night with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in 1975.

"Sinatra: Behind the Legend," written by J. Randy Taraborrelli, also claims Ethel Kennedy persuaded her sister-in-law to end the relationship.In the book, Taraborrelli claims Sinatra became fascinated with Onassis after meeting her when she was first lady. Their alleged night together occurred when Sinatra asked Onassis to accompany him to opening night of his concert with Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie in September 1975.

Onassis' friend and former chief of staff, Letitia Baldrige, told the New York Daily News, "It's total hearsay, fabrication, cocktail party chitchat . . . ."
