Not Weegee, Marilyn Monroe (image from eBay)

Sold for $121.

Copied from the Ebay listing:
“Marilyn Monroe rare vintage ‘Weegee’ classic snapshot photograph .
Marilyn Monroe 1954 rare 7×9 1/2 in. aproox. vintage double weight gelatin silver snapshot taken by New Yorker night hunter paparazzi, Weegee. John Springer collection stamp on verso of photo. In fine preserved archive condition”

(John Springer: press agent, Hollywood publicist.)

We don’t think Weegee made this photo…
