Marilyn Monroe's mother Gladys Pearl Baker was a single woman living with paranoid schizophrenia when she gave birth to the future icon, and their relationship remained strained until Monroe's sudden death.
When Marilyn Monroe first stepped onto the Hollywood scene, she claimed that she never knew her mother, Gladys Pearl Monroe.
