Michael Jackson’s wife, Lisa Marie Presley, stated he was afraid he’d end up like Elvis.
MICHAEL JACKSON married Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, and told her of his fear of sharing The King’s fate. Lisa Marie revealed after his death that she and MJ’s family had attempted to save him.
On June 25, 2009, the King of Pop passed away. The coroner discovered lethal doses of propofol and benzodiazepine. It brought back painful memories for his ex-wife of losing her father 30 years ago on August 16, 1977. Lisa Marie drew connections between them in terms of how they lived, who they surrounded themselves with, how they used drugs, and how they died. She expressed her regret for not listening to Michael when he expressed his fears that he might die like Elvis.
On May 26, 1994, Michael and Lisa Marie tied the knot. The marriage quickly fell apart, and she filed for divorce in January 1996, despite her continual defense of their partnership (and their sex life).
After MJ’s death, Lisa Marie said that they had secretly met and discussed reconciling for another four years. She was one of the few persons in whom the celebrity confided and who he believed understood the extremes of fame and strain he was experiencing.
Meanwhile, Lisa stated she felt she could ‘save’ him while they were together, and after he died, she revealed in a raw and heartbreaking public post the days after Michael died that she felt bad for not doing more to help.
“As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection, and confusion at what was my greatest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play the exact scenario I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (a sight I never wanted to see again), I am truly, truly gutted…” Lisa Marie wrote.
“I was hoping to”save him.” I wanted to save him from the impending disaster that had just occurred.
“His family and loved ones wanted to save him as well, but they didn’t know how, and this was 14 years ago. We were all concerned that this would be the result.”
Michael anticipated what would happen in a scary conversation Lisa Marie and Michael had during their remarriage.
“Years ago Michael and I were having a deep.” Brinkwire Summary News,” she wrote.
