Lisa Marie Presley on Michael Jackson: 'Really in love'

Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson in 1994 When Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson were together, they were "really in love," Presley told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired Thursday, "and then we had the rough patches. And I had to make a decision to walk because I saw the drugs and the doctors coming in, and they scared me. They put me right back into what I went through with my father. That ended it."

In what was billed as "her one and only television interview," Presley talked about her marriage to the King of Pop and her reaction to his death.

After crying all day for no reason on June 25, 2009, her tears stopped, she said, when she got a text from friend John Travolta saying that Jackson had died.

"I was floored. Honestly floored."

In 2005, when Presley last spoke to Jackson -- whom she'd married in 1994 and divorced two years later -- she said he had asked her if she still loved him. "I told him I was indifferent," she said. "He didn't like that word. He cried."

Winfrey seemed surprised to hear that the couple had spent four years reconciling and breaking up again after their split. Other tidbits: Jackson at one point told her he feared for his life; he also told her that if she didn't want to have a child with him, Debbie Rowe would do it -- and Presley said she considered it "retaliatory" when Rowe's pregnancy was announced shortly after their divorce.

Presley wrote about her marriage before, the day after Jackson's death. "Our relationship was not 'a sham' as is being reported in the press," she wrote on her MySpace page on June 26, 2009. "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."

On "The Oprah Winfrey Show" (watch parts of the interview here), Presley explained the attraction: "He had something so intoxicating about him, and when he was ready to share with you and be himself -- I don't know if I've ever been that intoxicated by anything. ... He was like a drug for me."

OK NUMBER 1 - LET'S LOOK BACK EVERYONE HERE YOUR MEMORY NEEDS A MEMORY JOLT. DIANNE SAWYER INTERVIEW 1995 MICHAEL STATES HE WAS LOOKING FOR LISA MARIE AND ASKED HIS LAWYER TO FIND HER, ONLY TO PICK UP A MAGAZINE AND READ SHE HAD MARRIED SHE WAS 20 HE WAS 30. HE SAID IT TORE HIM TO PIECES HE FELT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN HIM SHE WAS MARRYING. HE FINALLY MET HER AFTER HER SEPARATION FROM HUBBY NO 1 AND THEY DEVELOPED A FRIENDSHIP.THEN HE STARTED FALLING FOR HER AND SHE FOR HIM. DONALD TRUMP INTERVIEWED SAID HE GAVE LMP AND MJ A SUITE AT TRUMP TOWERS NY AND THEY WERE VERY MUCH IN LOVE. MICHAEL TOLD TRUMP HE WAS CRAZY ABOUT LISA. MICHARL IDOLIZED HER. HAVING A BOUT WITH DRUGS HERSELF SHE FELT SHE COULD HELP HIM. NEXT READ MICHAEL'S DEDICATION TO HER ON ONE OF HIS ALBUMS - LISA YOU ARE THE STAR IN MY GALAXY THE ONE THAT STRENTHENS ME LOVE MICHAEL. LOOK AT THE PAINTINGS HE HAD MADE UP ONE CALLED THE NOMBS, THE OTHER HE IS HER KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR BOTH PAINTINGS SHOWING HOW MUCH HE LOVED HER. NEXT LOOK AT ALL THEIR VIDEOS OR PICS HE IS HOLDING HER HAND SO TIGHT HE NEVER WANTED TO LET GO. NEXT HE ASKED HER TO TRAVEL WITH HIM AND ALWAYS WANTED HER BY HIS SIDE. SHE AND HIS NEPHEWS 3T AND JANET WERE WITH HIM FOR HIS 40TH BIRTHDAY. HE WANTED HER WITH HIM AND HIS CHILDREN IN NY AT A PARTY. HE INVITED HER TO JOSEPHS 70TH BIRTHDAY. LETS FACE IT STOP BASHING HER SHE CONTINUED LOVING HIM AND HE HER WHAT HE DID WAS CUT HIS NOSE TO SPITE HIS FACE(LITERALLY) NEVER REALIZING HE MADE A DECISION HE WOULD REGRET FOR HE REST OF HIS LIFE AND BECAME VERY DEPRESSED. ALSO, HE ALWAYS KEPT HER PICTURE BY HIS BED ON HIS NIGHTSTAND. HE WAS DEEPLY HURTING AND SO WAS SHE. THEY NEEDED COUNSELING AND SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN IT AND THEIR MARRIAGE MAY HAVE SURVIVED. ABOUT DEBBIE, MJ NEVER LIVED WITH HER SHE WAS JUST A CARRIER FOR HIS CHILDREN HE NEVER LOVED HER. SHE WAS A SURROGATE. WHEN SHE COULD NO LONGER BEAR CHILDREN HE WANTED NO MORE TO DO WITH HER. SHE PAINTED A UNTRUTHFUL PICTURE OF HER AND MICHAEL THERE WERE TIMES HE WOULD NOT LET HER SEE THE CHILDREN. THERE IS A VIDEO OF HER HYSTERICAL THINKING BACK IN 2004 WHEN HE WAS ACCUSED AGAIN, SHE FELT THE THINGS THEY WERE SAYING WERE TRUE AND WAS WORRIED ABOUT HER CHILDREN. LISA TRUSTED HER KIS AROUND HIM, BUT YOUR KIDS COME FIRST, AND SHE HAD TO THINK OF THEIR WELL BEING WHEN SHE LEFT. EVEN KATHERINE ADMITTED HE WAS AN ADDICT,BUT HE LIED TO HER. I KNOW IT WAS A TOUGH DECISION FOR LISA BUT SHE DID WHAT SHE HAD TO DO MOST SUBSTANCE ABUSE USERS FEEL THEY HAVE THINGS UNDER CONTROL BUT THE DRUG HAS THEM UNDER CONTROL. I FEEL SORRY FOR BOTH HE DIED THINKING SHE NO LONGER LOVED HOM AND SHE LET HIM DIE THINKING THAT WHEN SHE REALLY LOVED HIM ALL ALONG. THERE IS A SAYING HE WHO HATH A WOMAN SCORNED BY NOT TAKING HER BACK SHE DEVELOPED A DISLIKE FOR HIM NOT REALIZING IT WAS JUST A SHIELD, BECAUSE BOTH TRULY LOVED ONE ANOTHER.

I am happy that MJ and Lisa met and married because she made him as happy as he could possibly be, at that time and considering the circumstances.

Can't you all see how EASY it would be to fall madly in love with Michael Jackson? I believe Lisa Marie and I just wish they had gone through some serious marriage counseling together. She was being difficult and so was he. He wanted her to "give in" to him and she should have in many areas. If they had stuck together thru thick and thin, it would have been great! They were a cute and regal couple and they made each other and us very happy for a while.

she is a liar
