A Letter from Lisa Marie Presley About the Death of Michael Jackson

27 June 2009 25,289 views 5 Comments

Lisa Marie Presley just posted a blog on her MySpace Celebrity page about the sudden and untimely death of her friend and ex-husband, Michael Jackson in the age of 50.

It’s more about her confession and her feeling during the death of Michael Jackson. I say, she feels sorry for not doing the help that Michael needed and fight for it, she has the reason for that.
Please do read it, it ‘s insightful and touching.

He Knew.
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.

    I can tell that Lisa Marie Presley had tried to help him from occuring fate, but thats why its called fate, its supposed to happen.

    There was something bound to happen to Michael because he made such an effect on the world of music and there were so many opinions and allegations made against him and he was just such a big thing and had such a gigantic effect on the world.

    I personally loved Michael Jackson because of his talent and because even since everybody accused him of being a child molester, he still stood high and defended himself.

    I also loved his personality, it was childesh but very playful, if you would see his close up you would see that sitting with him would be a pleasure, he was an amazing indivisual and I don’t think that i’m going to recover from my sorrow mood for a long while

    Michael, you’re so special, and these words that Lisa said, it’s really touching.

    I just don’t understand the fact that he knew what he was going through, and yet he didn’t want to do anything to “prevent”.
    I wonder if sometimes he wanted it to happen, because he was tired of all this, so much suffering that he has spent these last years, he needed to rest somehow.

    Michael keeps in our hearts, he will always be remembered for his talents and all he has given to us. His fans are still here for him. We just want him to rest in peace, forever, wherever he is. Peace is all he deserves now <3

    the words lisa marie said were very touching to me and my family as well.i think michael jackson was one of the or the best artist on the planet.he was truly caring and down to earth.he wasnt a tipical man or human he had a childlike innocence about him which made him truly special.we have lost a very amazing man . michael is also a true insparation for me and my friends.i often talk about him all day or various parts of the day.michael also had an amazing soft voice which could put any child to sleep or help them stop crying.he was very helpful to children and people of all ages who were sick or deprived by letting them escape in the neverland teritories.he was also very graceful when he danced and walked.his talent just came naturally to him which made it all the better.i beive like he once said we should all express our natural abilities and things that make each one of us special and unique.also we should never give up no matter how many people say we should or how many mistakes we make. michael was a true insparation to all. we should all care for one another.
