The actress, singer and all out sultry sex symbol Earth Kitt died of cancer on Christmas day aged 81.
Ironically, one of the things she is most famous for is the original recording of "Santa Baby" in 1953.

The actress has played many parts, but for most people her feline movement and purring speech made her the ultimate and 'purr'-fect catwoman. A part she filled in the 1960s Batman series.

Eartha Kitt's career spanned six decades and her life story can make for some sad reading.

Mr Halperin also claims Michael Jackson has developed emphysema and is losing vision in his left eye.
