Impersonator and TikTok star Jasmine Chiswell (@jasminechiswell) moved into the final home of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio in 2019. Since then, she and her husband have documented many odd occurrences in the L.A. mansion — but nothing quite as shocking as the artifacts they came across while renovating.
Now, much like the couple who made a chilling discovery in the attic of their 108-year-old home, Jasmine’s renovation discovery is going viral.
With Marilyn making headlines to this day — both for the new biopic "Blonde" starring Ana de Armas, and for the 60th anniversary of her tragic death — it's no surprise that Jasmine's findings are causing a stir on TikTok.

The house, built in 1938, was the final home of baseball star Joe DiMaggio and Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.
According to Jasmine’s house tour vids, the house maintains many original features that Joe and Marilyn picked out — such as light fixtures, art, bathtubs, tiling and even towels.
As Jasmine documents in her videos, living in Marilyn Monroe’s former home is a surreal experience — and sometimes, a paranormal one as well.
In a now-viral video (featuring Jasmine’s little boy, Midnight), the family revealed to their TikTok followers that they believe their home is haunted by the spirit of Marilyn Monroe.

According to Mansion Global, 1954 was a “whirlwind” year for Marilyn — as was her relationship with former Yankees star Joe DiMaggio.
“In January , she married DiMaggio; in September she began filming Billy Wilder’s ‘The Seven Year Itch,’ which includes the star-defining scene of her standing on a Manhattan subway grate as the steam blows up her billowy white dress; and in October, only nine months after they vowed never to separate, she filed for divorce from DiMaggio. Two years later, Monroe walked down the aisle with playwright Arthur Miller. When that relationship ended in 1961, she began seeing DiMaggio again.”
But potentially lingering spirits didn’t scare off Jasmine and her family. Instead, it seemed to endear them to the property even more.
According to the Zillow listing for the home, the couple purchased the 3,620-square-foot property for $2.7 million. Since then, the two have lovingly restored the home to its former Hollywood glory, right down to the original accents on the staircase.
But while renovating and settling into the home, Scotland-born Jasmine and her husband have made some shocking discoveries — findings which have taken TikTok by storm.
TikTokers were shocked by Jasmine’s discoveries in the home, detailed in her now-viral TikTok — and some credit her love for Marilyn Monroe for leading her to the items.
