"Russian Marxist revolutionary Leon Trotsky (center) sought political asylum at Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo’s home in the 1930′s. He was later found murdered. Frida (who had a brief affair with him) was arrested and questioned as a suspect. A tad disenchanted with her ex-lover, she’s been quoted as saying, “He irritated me from the time that he arrived with his pretentiousness, his pedantry because he thought he was a big deal.” After his death, the artist couple liked to play up the event, joking around and telling friends they invited Trotsky to Mexico just to get him killed. "  via
