On Friday, June 26, just one day after Michael Jackson passed away, his ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley wrote a candid new entry on her MySpace blog, in which she shared her thoughts about his death and how the sudden incident affects her. In the same post, she also revealed that Michael knew from the very beginning he would die young in the same way as her father Elvis Presley did.
"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 Father's Death," Lisa began her blog. "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," she went on writing. "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 L.A. 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," she continued.
"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," Lisa concluded on her MySpace.
