Kim Kardashian might not really be in possession of a lock of hair that once belonged to Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.

It was earlier reported that Kardashian received a lock of hair that belonged to Marilyn Monroe from "Ripley's Believe It Or Not!" Monroe historian Scott Fortner now claims the item is fake and he has all the evidence to prove it, People reported.

"News Alert: Marilyn Monroe Hair Gifted to Kardashian by Ripley's is Fake. Who styled Marilyn's hair for the JFK gala: Robert Champion or Kenneth Battelle?" Fortner wrote on Instagram.

"Yet another astonishing occurrence from KK 'borrowing' the famous 'Happy Birthday Mr. President' dress from Ripley's was their giving her some of Marilyn Monroe's hair," the historian added.

"Robert Champion did not cut and style Marilyn's hair for the JFK gala. It was actually the one and only 'Mr. Kenneth' (Kenneth Battelle) who had the honors. Battelle is responsible for Marilyn's famous hairstyle from that night, as documented by a receipt from Lilly Dache Beauty Salon (see photo). The receipt, dated May 25, 1962 list a 'Hair Dress' and references May 18 and 19, 1962. May 19th was the date of the Kennedy gala. The bottom of the receipt reads, 'Kenneth Services at home Fri + Saturday.' Marilyn paid $150.00 for the service," he shared.

"So, I think we have to now wonder: Just who's hair is she actually sleeping with?" he concluded the post.

However, a representative for Ripley's said the hair lock gifted to Kardashian was in fact authentic and not the same hair displayed in her dressing room.

"Ripley's exhibit collection contains six different samples of Marilyn Monroe's hair — all authenticated and truly Marylin's," the representative said. "The hair gifted to Kim was given by Marilyn Monroe to Robert Champion. This clipping was authenticated by John Reznikoff, one of the most respected and trusted experts in the field of hair collecting."
