Lisa Marie Presley: "Michael Knew He Would Die Like This"

| Filed under: Michael Jackson

ap-jackson.jpg

Under the title He Knew., Michael Jackson's ex-wife, Lisa Marie Presley, took to her MySpace blog to record some very touching words.

She says:

"Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general.

I can't recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my Fathers Death.

At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, "I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did."

I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that.

14 years later I am sitting here watching on the news an ambulance leaves the driveway of his home, the big gates, the crowds outside the gates, the coverage, the crowds outside the hospital, the Cause of death and what may have led up to it and the memory of this conversation hit me, as did the unstoppable tears.

A predicted ending by him, by loved ones and by me, but what I didn't predict was how much it was going to hurt when it finally happened.

The person I failed to help is being transferred right now to the LA County Coroners office for his Autopsy.

All of my indifference and detachment that I worked so hard to achieve over the years has just gone into the bowels of hell and right now I am gutted.

I am going to say now what I have never said before because I want the truth out there for once.

Our relationship was not "a sham" as is being reported in the press. It was an unusual relationship yes, where two unusual people who did not live or know a "Normal life" found a connection, perhaps with some suspect timing on his part. Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much.

I wanted to "save him" I wanted to save him from the inevitable which is what has just happened.

His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn't know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.

At that time, In trying to save him, I almost lost myself.

He was an incredibly dynamic force and power that was not to be underestimated.

When he used it for something good, It was the best and when he used it for something bad, It was really, REALLY bad.

Mediocrity was not a concept that would even for a second enter Michael Jackson's being or actions.

I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him.

I was in over my head while trying.

I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision.

The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow.

After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret.

Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation.

At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now.

As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest 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) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.

Any ill experience or words I have felt towards him in the past has just died inside of me along with him.

He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together.

I desperately hope that he can be relieved from his pain, pressure and turmoil now.

He deserves to be free from all of that and I hope he is in a better place or will be.

I also hope that anyone else who feels they have failed to help him can be set free because he hopefully finally is.

The World is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right.

I really needed to say this right now, thanks for listening.

    this is so incredibly sad, and moving.. i cried
    i feel like i have lost something, the entire world has lost something great
    and though i will never or would have ever met him, i still wish for him to rest in peace now. from all the things his friends have said it seems like what he needs most



  2. 102

    AND UNTIL PEREZ ISSUES AN APOLOGY FOR IMPLYING THAT THAT POOR MAN WAS FAKING HIS DEATH I STAND BY MY POST………………..

    PEREZ IS AN A** HOLE
    I DNT LIKE SPEAKING BAD ABOUT PEPLZ BUT HERE I GO… PEREZ HILTON IS A LONLEY, NO LIFE,LOW SELF ESTEEM PIECE OF BLOB. HE SMILES N PUBLIC BUT I KNOW THAT FAT WISHN HE WAS SKINNY FREAK IS MISERABLE! HE PROBES IN OTHER PEPLZ BIZ AND TALKS ABOUT IT 2 MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER ABOUT HIMSELF. HE IS A DISGUSTING SIGHT THAT MAKES ME WANA VOMIT EVERYTIME I LAY EYES ON HIM, LOOKING AS IF HES CARRYING THE AROMA OF STALE A** CRACK. I BET HE SITS ALONE AT NIGHT AND CRIES WISHING HE WAS SOMEONE ELSE. INSTEAD OF A BLACK EYE HE SHOULD HAVE GOT THAT BIG IGNORANT MOUTH OF HIS BUSTED UP TO THE POINT THAT HIS FAT BURGER SLURP’N JAWS WERE WIRED SHUT. I WILL ADMIT THIS WAS NOT THE NICEST THING IVE SAID N MY LIFETIME BUT I SURE FEEL BETTER. MIKE WOULDNT HAVE APPROVED THIS MESSAGE BECAUSE HE WAS SUCH A LOVING PERSON. BUT IM ME SO UP URS PEREZ SCREW U LARD A**. RIP MIKE.



  3. 103

    She WAS one of those parasites. She wanted to make him another John Travolta or Tom Cruise, a slave to the cult of Scientology. And if he'd stayed with her he would have been dead long before now, only it would happen on some island and the body would be cremated before an autopsy could be done.



  4. 104

    Re: karenkski – IDK IF UR LYN R NOT BUT I KNW UR MOUTH SHOUTD BE HEALD 2GETHA BY STaples. BUT I DID NOTICE U TOOK UR FIRST POST DWN ABOUT THE NOSE SO GOOD 4 U. UNLESS I JST OVERLOOKED IT IF THATS THA CASE UR STILL AN IDIOT.

    Re: Angeles85 – YEA I MOST DEFINANTLY BELIEVE THIS IS PEREZ LOL



  6. 106

    wow, that was beautiful.



  7. 107

    To be Lisa Marie and have two important men in your life die IN ALMOST THE SAME WAY must be heartbreaking.
    AS much as we all try to fix out loved ones sometimes we can't.
    Hopefully the Jackson family and Lisa Marie can rest knowing that in the end it really depends on that person.



  8. 108

    Re: L.boose Boo!! – No I am not Perez. I am just a person who is not spending time hating others. I am not perfect and I am 100% you are not either so before I open my mouth to hate on others I see my own mistakes and try to be better each day but… I am not going to waste my time trying to teach a trash person to be better. Loser get a life and enjoy it

    Re: The DOUCHEess
    YO GIRL FROM THE HOOD! whazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz up?



  10. 110

    It doesn't matter what anyone thinks about Michael or your his marriage to LMP….he will forever be loved by us all.

  12. 112

    MY FIRST POST WAS REMOVED!!!!!!!!
    IT'S OKAY FOR PEREZ TO SAY WHATEVER HE WANTS AND THAT IS OKAY!
    I MADE A COMMENT ABOUT MJ's NOSE AND IT GETS REMOVED!!!!!!!!
    SEE HOW PEREZ IS???????????????????????????????????????????????????



  13. 113

    yeah i dont want to be mean but its now that everybody is regretting for not helping him or saving him

    i felt sorry for her behalf i cried reading her letter it was deep and touched my heart



  14. 114

    I WILL REPOST IT!

    IF MICHAEL KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DIE THIS WAY~

    DID HE ALSO KNOW HIS NOSE WOULD FALL OFF??????



  15. 115

    ******PEREZ REMOVED MY EARLIER POST*******

    OK PEREZ YOU CAN TRASH ANY CELEBRITY AND THEIR CHILDREN AND I SAY SOMETHING ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSONS NOSE AND IT GETS REMOVED>
    NOT HALF AS BAD AS THE SHIT YOU SAY!



  16. 116

    Her words are so sweet and kind. While the music of Michael Jackson started infiltrating my soul from an early age, I did not know him, nor could I. I know that his music made me feel happy and up beat, but it was never delivered in a way that was about "hey babe, look at me". I only enjoyed my own life more via his music. While I am so sad that his life was completely tragic, I guess he did know love and LMP's words confirm that. Blessings to all that care xox



  17. 117

    Okay. Michael was a pedifilic monster, who preyed on young boys, and once paid an 8 figure lawsuit to a boy who was going to take him to court. Once the police raided his Neverland Ranch, he refused to ever set foot onto the property again," because the police tainted it by searching it." He neglected all the beautiful animals living there, that he was responsible for, and let them slowly almost starve to death! The photos of those poor elephants and giraffe's were horrifying! Finally animal santuaries took over and rescued those poor innocent abused starving creatures! He was a creep and deserves no sympathy!!!



  18. 118

    Heartless haters have no right to take up space here after such a beautiful and heartfelt insight… He was a human being, and you should be ashamed of yourself, and your hateful words. I don't think people understand the sacrifices artists make for the love of music. Everyone has their own trials and tribulations. You cannot deny the unmatched contributions to music he has given this world. Peace…



  19. 119

    What a touching tribute to a talented man. Please do not feel guilty about anything. Hold your head up and know you did the best you could.



  20. 120

    wow.. this blew me away…so eloquently and beautifully written. a worthy tribute to an extraordinary human being. thank you so much lisa marie for showing us a glimpse of the michael jackson we didn't know. may he rest in peace and forever live in our hearts.



  21. 121

    This seems incredibly sincere. My heart goes out to Lisa and Michaels Family. You can tell she really cared for him immensly

  22. jemms says – reply to this


    122

    wow, that is truly heartbreaking.



  23. 123

    IT'S SUPPOSSED TO WORK BOTH WAYS!

    PEREZ SAYS WHAT HE WANTS AND WE SAY WHAT WE WANT!!!!!!!

    HE DOESN'T CARE IF HE HURTS ANYONES FEELINGS!!!!!

    R.I.P MIKE!!!!



  25. 125

  26. 126

    Re: Lavender – Whore??….grow up and stop calling ppl names when u don't even know anything about who they really are…all of u being disrespectful to the memory of this man and the feelings of this woman will get urs sooner than later.



  27. 127

    My heart aches. For the childhood he never had, for the lasting love he never knew and for his children, his family, his friends and us, his loyal fans. There will never be another like him. Dear Lisa, you could not have saved him…ever. He had to save himself. His spirit was much to tender for this harsh world. He's free now, and we are left to live and greive and learn.



  28. 128

    Re: L.boose Boo!!
    I guess we can agree to disagree
    okay fuckhead!
    But I think you have a secret crush on me!
    You just say that stuff to cover your love for me!



  29. 129

    So heartfelt and honest. God, thanks so much for sharing this with us Lisa.



  30. 130

  39. 139

    Re: karenkski – and we are all supposed to think that you do?



  40. 140

    She's so full of crap! I remember her interview on Oprah after they divorced..she basically said she had to of been out of her mind hooking up with him and snarled the elvis snarl at the mention of Michael Jackson from Oprah. She said he was a manipulator and used her for his own reasons at that time. So Lisa, stop acting all sad now. Paleeeze!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  41. 141

    I liked Mike..but he never sought treatment that worked..so it cost him his life. sad, but he only has himself to blame. R.I.P. though.



  42. 142

    Trully the most beautiful lines said up to now. I cannot stop crying. Love you.



  43. 143

    beautiful



  44. 144

    Wow some of these comments are so fitting , the best one is referring you as a douchebag.
    From one Gay man to another you fucking idiot you are a disgrace to the Gay community or any community in this world. Your a shallow vicious Queen and yes the name fits you well and I won't use the one you seem to like to call str8 people when you get upset at them. You sounded so pathetic when you did the blog on Black Eye Peas. And wow your a real douche bag when you don't know when to lay low and shut up and turn around and attack the King of Pop with your slanderous thoughts on Michael Jackson's fake death SHAME SHAME and your day will come when your a washed up nobody and hopefully it will happen sooner than later. You were a nasty piece of work because we all know your going in the shitter sooner than you realize. I hope you like some of the adjectives that I or others are using , they are so fitting for a douchebag babbler such as yourself . And your blog caption should be re phrased CELEBRITY JUICE NOT FROM CONCENTRATED BUT MORE FROM THE SHIT HOLE or the DOUCHE which is where you belong FLUSHHHHHHHH you will be gone in the next week I hope. FLUSHHHHHHH hopeufully enough will BITCH ABOUT YOU THAT YOU WILL GO INTO THE LOOINIE TOON HOSPITAL.



  45. 145

    Really touching. I think she's really sincere, and truly seems like a good and honest person. She shouldn't blame herself for what happened to Michael though. R.I.P. Michael Jackson you will be missed.



  46. 146

    She is an amazing woman. LOVE her!



  47. 147

    Michael Jackson sang
    The boy was not his son
    Jackson didn't fuck women
    He liked little boy's buns

    Jackson put his johnson
    In the anus of little boys
    He lured them to his bed
    With cotton candy and toys

    Jackson gave blowjobs to little boys
    And fondled their dicks
    And fingered their assholes
    Jackson was sick as shit

    Jackson is now dead
    It's good he has passed
    Never again will the pedophile
    Cornhole a little boy's ass.



  48. 148

    That was so touching. Michael would be so proud.
    Michael is only 3 years older than me,so I truly did grow up listening to,first the Jackson Five and then to Michael,solo.
    Regardless of what some people think,I will ALWAYS believe in his innocence, Nobody can ever convince me that Michael would EVER harm a child.
    I will miss him and his great talent.



  49. 149

    Lisa, you are a great mom and have a great head on your shoulders. Be sure of that. I wish you no more trauma in your life and just simply live and love.

    Re: MJ fan59 – Simple, easy. His evil father pushed, pushed, pushed, and hit and yelled and screamed. His dad his a huge prick control freak. MJ is/was a very sweet, king human being. Did it at 4..at 50, probably felt like he was 500. Felt caught, a cash cow. Rest in peace mike.



  52. 152

    Shame on you Joe Jackson you evil, whore master bully.



  53. 153

    Re: Sisaly – 'Re: Sisaly

    Michael was NOT into Scientology,brainiac. He was a Jehovahs (sp?) Witness.
    Get you shit right,will you?



  54. 154

    thats such an amazing message. nicely said.



  55. 155

    Re: karenkski

    Pot Meet Kettle!



  56. 156

    Ok this really almost made me cry. I feel bad for MJ, he was a talented man, going through so many issues. RIP king of pop!



  57. 157

    Re: DisorderlyMan – Wow,so fucking eloquent! ASSHOLE!



  58. 158

    Re: DisorderlyMan

    I Love yoy!



  59. 159

    Thank you for these words Lisa Marie. Very honest and real. RIP MJ.



  60. 160

    RESPECK!



  61. 161

    Re: arta

    Are you fucking retarded? The entire piece is by LMP… the only sentence in quotes was an actual quote by Michael Jackson. the other words in "quotes" was because she was quoting others and the exact words they used toward them. Did you go to English class… EVER? This is LMP's writing… her words. It's not just partially in quotes, you moron.



  62. 162

    First off those are some weird effing boots he's wearing in that picture. Sorry i know it's not time for jokes but come one.. those are ridiculous lol. Secondly, that entire blog she wrote is so incredibly touching and heartfelt. i hope she doesn't feel as though any of this is her fault… that would be an enormous burden to carry on your shoulder for the rest of your life. The world is reacting the exact same way they did when her father (Elvis) passed away. He WAS our generations Elvis if you think about it. So incredibly talented. Rest in Peace Michael.

  64. 164

    The media is an extremely evil force. I really feel bad for celebrities at times because of things like this. They have dragged the man to his death. I believe the only thing he's guilty of was loving people (who cares about age), but it's not like he was trying to kill anyone regardless of how grim the situation may have seen. I truly hope he find solace in resting in peace away from this world.



  65. 165

    I think that letter was very real, very sweet and very heart-felt..Thank you, Lisa..

    Re: poopstain – Let it go! Your a dick:O/

    perez hilton, a jew goblin?

    CHECK OUT HIS PHOTOS ON GOOGLE OF PEREZ SWALLOWING A JEWISH WOMAN IN ONE BITE!



  68. 168

    We all live a life of great joy and great sorrow, some more than others. The deaths of both Elvis and Michael are great losses to the world, but their contributions were epic. I believe God alloted them the time to do what they needed to do then set them free, irregardless of what anyone could say or do. Its nobodys failure, its destiny.



  69. 169

    I sat in my car crying and was amazed that i felt this way, but Michael has been entertaining my entire life and we all grew up w. him. Im still very sad but remembering the joy he brought to so many people including myself. In knowing Michael, i would expect his final performance to be reminesent of what i saw on tv the day Elvis was laid to rest.



  70. 170

    I cannot think of any other person alive today on this planet who could have this kind of global reaction and/or impact through death. His music is blaring in clubs, radio, tv, the net, its selling out the charts, blogs r going crazy, and people all over the world are in shock, crying and moonwalking. He was a true legend and genius, and i am grateful to have grown up with him.



  71. 171

    VERY touching and from a good heart. You may never hear anybody talk so honestly and raw about Michael's life - I'm not a big Jackson fan but in this statement Lisa gives more insight on his problems than anyone else will. very balanced and loving.



  72. 172

    LMP,
    Having one phenominal legend be your father and the other your husband, i could not even begin to imagine the incredible stress and pressure thrust upon you, as well as crazy expectations and fish-bowl scrutiny. I am amazed at how level-headed and strong you are with such a life. May God Bless you and continue to fortify you with strength and happpiness.



  73. 173

    Her words sound like the agony experienced by millions who are dealing with a loved one who is either mentally ill and/or an addict–multiplied times a hundred based on his fame. It is nearly impossible to get through to someone who is phenomenally successful and convince them that they have a problem. This is true for people who are successful in any endeavor–politics, business, entertainment. She was right not to let herself and her kids go down in the effort, but it is sad.



  74. 174

    This was beautiful.Only someone like Lisa could really understand someone like Michael.These people come from a life that we will never know or experience.I never thought that Elvis daughter would marry Michael if thier wasnt a genuine connection.Even though it didnt last,the image of these two families being brought together like that I thought was beautiful.May Michael finally get some peace.Lisa,your a great person.On a side note,if you havent heard Lisas first album,its dynamic and refreshing.The woman can write.



  75. 175

    only someone like lisa could understand someone like michael..people like them live a life that we will never experience or know.I knew elvis daughter would never marry michael if thier wasnt a real genuine connection.the image of these two families coming together was a beautiful sight to see.even if it was only for a short time.this was very nice what lisa said.heartfelt and real.i've always liked her because she had to endure so much in her life also.and somehow still managed to be down to earth.thank you lisa .ps.if you havent heard lisas first album,its really good.the girl can write her ass off.plus she kind of sounds like her father when she sings.



  76. 176

    I LOVE YOU LMP. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PERSON

    PEREZ, LOSE WEIGHT OMG WHY ARE YOU SOOO FAT? AREN'T YOU EMBARRASSED? I REALLY AM DISGUSTED BY YOUR AESTHETIC.



  77. 177

    he is an amazing character. i hope so so much he has found peace. he deserves nothing less.



  78. 178

    what an amazing woman!



  79. 179

    Re: Mickey7 – I completely agree… you see this with Britney Spears too….These ppl are in mental anyway, then being in the limelight! Why that must really SCREW ppl severely up…I can't even imagine..having a life picked apart with a microscope every damn day….tragic really…..



  80. 180

    That was very touching LMP …Now micheal jackson can rip and not have to deal with what seemed like such a lonely misunderstood life ..wow you would'nt think someone who had everything could be sooo lonely and misunderstood he was a great talented person and know one can ever hurt him anymore you go MJ



  81. 181

    Wow what a courageous statement. I feel that all she said was true and there is something very basic about Michael Jackson that we will NEVER know. We just learned a smidget of it and I feel privileged. Peace to LMP and MJ……….. Glory



  82. 182

    I'm still in shock like many others. This statement is beautiful and lets you see Michael for Michael.



  83. 183

    Re: Anonymous does not forgive. – THANK U ANONYMOUS!!!! GEEZ THATS WHY I WAS SO UPSET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  84. 184

    Re: JudieOscura – ACTUALLY IT WASNT MENT 2 B NICE! ARENT U JST A SMART LIL COOKIE "WINK" "WINK"



  85. 185

    If she loved him so much…why didnt she stick by him no matter what it took and get him clean?? Liar!



  86. 186

    Michael Jackson, INC. Michael Jackson was a HUGE PAYCHECK for too many people, and the pressure of constantly having to "top yourself" and make MORE MORE MORE MONEY drove him into "prescription drugs". It's not really that surprising, except you'd think he'd know better. He should have retired from SHOW BIZ, a la Cher, and perhaps just worked Vegas for a while. He has enough money left over (I hope) to live comfortably. Maybe now………………..50 concerts in London IS A SHIT LOAD OF WORK ! EVEN FOR THAT BIG MONEY !



  87. 187

    Re: CuddlyCarla – Are you truly Cuddly, or just another SUPERMODEL WANNABE ?



  88. 188

    That's a crazy and heartbreaking story–i feel for Lisa Marie for having to endure the deaths of two legends in almost the exact same way. And it shows us that Michael DID have a human side. I teared up a little when i thought about how both Elvis and Michael were both taken away from us so suddenly.
    ~
    I'm glad Lisa Marie wrote this–she seemed so sincere about her relationship with him and i send her my love and prayers. The world misses Michael Jackson already. RIP. :(



  89. 189

    PS: Michael Jackson deserves to finally reat in peace with the angels after the hell he's been through in his 50 years of his short life. :(



  90. 190

    wow that is weird but yet amazing that someone would know that, i feel sorry for his family, friend, fans, and well anyone that loved him
    i myself was not a fan but its still sad to see anyone in this world die hopefuly he is in a better place and he will be rememberd for ever R.I.P MJ



  91. 191

    Another spear in my heart! How sad! Michael knew all along.. too soon, too late. Thankyou Lisa for sharing this with us. I can't imagine how you feel.. but am so grateful you shared this with us. Thankyou again. xoxo

    I,ll never believe she loved him! She knew he was just using her for his own reason..mostly to heal his reputation about boys….she didnt seem sad when they got divorced..she seemed TOTALLY relieved!!!! She's fake right now about all this "sadness"..Bullshit..she hasnt been around him on YEARS!

    i feel so bad for his family especially his poor kids that had lost their father too fast and too soon. but it is nice to hear the opinion of michael the person not michael the singer, cause along the line i guess we all forgot what he really sounded like as a human being. and i really hope that everyone will be able to pull through this difficult time. and may he rest in peace and happiness finally away from press.

    I was actually thinking of her. How gutwrenching it must be to be in the unique position of both daughter and ex-wife to two of the world's (let alone music's) most earth-shattering losses. Her sentiments are articulated beautifully and no doubt echoed by fans and critics alike. While my heart goes out to his family and friends, it also went out to her in particular, as for her this is not only a devastating blow, but a double whammy. RIP to both the Kings.

    Hmmm, this actually sounds like she wrote it, rather than her publicist. That's a bit unusual…. Oh well, Michael Jackson was a junkie, and that's just reality. You can't save a junkie who doesn't want to be saved.
