Michael Jackson And Elvis: Lisa Marie Presley Tells Oprah What Happened

by | 22nd, October 2010

LISA Marie Presley, Elvis’s daughter, lives in Tunbridge Wells, England. It’s more private over here than in LA, a place obsessed with the vapid Weltschmerz of the ‘Me’.

England is just more free and easy. Sure Lisa, reportedly, asked staff at her mansion to sign a privacy document – an agreement not to talk about their work. One source told the Sun:

It was like they were being asked to sign the Official Secrets Act. It was way over the top and they felt it was a total infringement of their human rights. “Staff could not speak to their husbands, wives or even their grandchildren about what they did.”

Said Lisa Marie of her family’s move:

We have found the quality of life so much more enriching and fulfilling. The civility, the culture, the people and its beauty have reawakened me and have smoothed out some of my bleak and jagged views about people and life.”

So. Here’s Lisa Marie on the deep and meaningful Oprah Winfrey show, an interview conducted at here English idyll. Kent is not LA, but you can always bring some over.

The talk is of Lisa, Elvis and Michael Jackson, and how she and the King of Pop’s marriage was real. She says she never knew he took drugs until right before their marriage ended. She recalls their last conversation as husband and wife:

“I was very distant … He was asking me, he wanted to tell me that I was right about a lot of people around him. And he asked if I still loved him. … I told him I was indifferent and he didn’t like that word. And the final part of the conversation was him telling me that someone was going to try and kill him to get a hold of his catalog and estate. And I really didn’t know what to do with that.’

Says Rumor Rat:

The highlight of the interview? When The Big O brought up the similar way in which both her father and her ex-husband Michael Jackson lived and died. “It really blows me away, to be honest with you. I still try to figure out why? What is it that I had to go through this twice?” she recalled. “I went through it once, that was painful and I went through it again.”

The show end and Lisa Marie is left to her privacy…
