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.

i don't kno anything about LM and her relationship with MJ but what i kno is that the 'love' she was tryin to offer him never helped in anyway no matter how much she claimed to try to help him. he needed, as sum1 mentioned b4, unconditional and TRUE love. that however was unavalaible. so what can we do now? mourn and love him in our own special way. love you MJ. forever and always

To add to that, how do you know those kids are white and why does it matter?
posted by re: confused on May 10, 2010
you're a moron, you call him self abosorbed and yet he donated more then anyone to children and he was a physically sick man who needed sleep and not a mentally sick man and just because you stick around because people have money does not mean others do what you do moron.

I don't feel sorry for LM. She showed her true colors when he was living. This is to get attention and excuse herself. MJ had talent. She is known for jumping from one man to the next, one affair to the next, no talent and gets by on her dead father. Elvis was a good man. He got a rotten deal in LM. She feels gutted? She was gutted before. As usual she is using his death to get herself attention. Selfish wannabe!

I don't understand how people keep talking garbage about this man. Yes, he was one of the greats in the music world. I happen to love his music. He is gone! Regardless of what or wasn't done to help him doesn't matter anymore. Everyone would love to know what happened to him but while people poke at this open wound, who do you think its hurting? It is hurting his children and the people who were close to him.Remember the good not the bad.I've watched probably all the interviews that have been playing nonstop since his death.I just don't understand why people want to make a buck off of someone elses sorrow.People want to see drama and yes his death was.But cool it.Remember him as a great singer,song writer,brother,uncle,son and FATHER! People think his death is news but to his family I don't think so.

Lisa, thanks for saying positive things about someone who actually knew him, the public will listen and as a fan it is greatly appreciated. It was not your fault, an addict cannot love unless he feels loved, he cannot get help unless he truly recognizes that there is a REAL problem. He was an imperfect man living in an imprefect world trying to survive..some people can cope and some cannot obviously your childhood prepares you for your journed through this world and as we've all heard his childhood only prepared him the be the greatest entertainer of all time..if only he was taught how to survive regardless of stardom, to survive heartache and sorrow maybe he would still be alive today. All he knew was perfection. Hopefully he will now know salvation..God bless you Lisa Marie. I hope that you continue to tell the truth about the beautiful and flawed human being that MJ truly was !!

I think you did love him. I can see it in the way you talk about him. Thank you for sharing your story. Don't blame yourself, you tried so hard to save him for years. He was just too far gone. He was a lovely man, who had an amazing concept of this world. Like his song, he's just gone too soon, and the whole world feels it. Just remember, you are not to blame. If anything you made him stronger.

Yanno, anyone passing is a sad event, but gimme a break, he was the joke of the planet while he was alive, now in death everyone feels guilty for it. What he did with more fame and fortune than most is on record. He was what he was, his choice, rip dude

I agree that she is a hyprocrite. She talked trash about his after the divorce to several people even Diane sawyer. MJ never did that to her ever. She can't save someone, you need unconditional love for such a thing. She didn't have that. She was to worried about how SHE looked in the eyes of everyone. She was not worthy of him. I wish he would have met someone truthful, real, honest, and unconditional. I honor and respect Elizabeth Taylor. The ONLY true friend. The only real love.

I think a lot about michael as a person and think that he loved his children the most of all ,more then his own life I still think he was alone and very sad michael I never forget you as a person and your music

I have no idea where Michael Jackson got skin disorders called Vitiligo. I think this skin disorders made him life short when reach to 50 years old. I think I heard treatment also called Vitiligo is not widespread and maybe legal in United States.

Michael did things on this Earth that people were too affraid to do themselves. He got the world together, he said it was okay to love one another, he's the one who said "There is nothing that can't be done, if we all raise our voice as one." I wasn't lucky enough to know him personally, but even through his music and his interviews, you can feel and see, this man had so much love to give. This man has been through things that we can't even amagin, and he still tried so hard to see the greater things in life. Everyone wanted something from him, and at times, he just had nothing to give, but love, and people were just too cruel to accept it. We all should live by what he stood for, love, unity, equallity, peace, and happiness. He tried making a difference by himself, and he did. But now he needs our help. Michael started a new beginning for the world, now it's our turn to step in, and finish it. R.I.P Michael, you are loved. And when we enter heaven years from now, we will be happy knowing your greeting us at the gate saying, "I love you more."

Michael was a self absorbent, self satisfying wanna be. he wasted tens of millions of dollars and died deeply in debt. Spend your time mourning the men and women that die protecting your freedom. This guy was disturbed and had caused so much turmoil that he could not even sleep. By the way, why did he choose to adopt white children? I think he was a sick man, and the only reason family and friends flocked to him was for money, money that Michael wasted on garbage and then took none of it to his death. Wake up people, re-evaluate your priorities!

Dear Lisa, Lord God has his angels on this world one of them were your father Elvis who loved God so much, and Michael. Lisa don't worry and don't cry, they are both now safe waiting for Jesus to come back and wake them up...Their mission is complete and Lord send them to rest! You will see them very soon Lisa, Rejoice! and please look after your twins and remember my son Blanket I believe I'm his biological mum (the egg donor). I prey for You Lisa ...and Love You with all my heart!

Michael Jackson was certainly loved all over the world. he will be sadly missed and his music will definetly live on forever. i believe he is in a better place but this is just such a big shock to each and every human being on this planet. In SA we are having tribute concerts all over the show to celebrate his life and his career. please people out there he is in a better place leave his kids and family alone, we are not here to judge. Peace be with you MJ we all love you. Love Janine & family.

In spite of having everything and being everything, Michael Jackson was a very lonely man. His loneliness is visible in his total behavior. Wish him all the best in his next life.

I never could relate to Michael Jackson, however I did enjoy his early music. I'm not sure exactly what transpired in the last twenty years of his life, but I do know one thing, someone should have gotten him to a good psychologist. Anyway,R.I.P.

All of these accolades should have been poured on mj, while still alive. He trascends color and none like micheal jackson, he lives on.

i know mj is happy now! he is looking down on his entire family, true friends, and his TRUE fans. I know he wouldn't want us to stay sad. He now belongs to God. God took him from all this pain he went through over the years. i hope janet and the rest of the family will be okay. i hope janet won't do nothing to hurt herself, she is the only superstar in her family now. If she does another album, she might dedicate it to him! mj is making music with the angels, he has alwaysed made beautiful music. He just got his wings he dancing with james brown again like he did on the 2003 bet awards.

i loved mj so much, still do! i miss his voice, his dancing. now all i can do is watch him on tv or on youtube just to here him talk. I love watching his private home movies. he was so funny. i miss his laugh. i just keep crying every single day and night. I even dream about him just singing and dancing. I cant eat, drink, or sleep just thinking about him. i didn't eat nothing since june 25th after hearing he was gone. i feel like i some weight. i feel so depressed now! but i know mj is in a better place. no more pain, no one to hurt him god is protecting him now. he is dancing with the angels and even talking to his icon james brown! i wonder what mj and james brown are talking about now! When he died, god told him to come home to him. Mj is in a better and happier place! he is at peace now! But i stiil love and is going to miss him! i will keep listening to his music. i have all his cds, i have the jackson 5 the jacksons. I wonder how is nieces and nephews are taking it! R.I.P MJ!!! i'll see you one day!!!!

come on,do you really believe her story? remember how she critized him after her failed marriage. even now, she says he manipulated her and was not capable of love as she was. BS. she just posted this to cover herself in the eyes of the world. she was his wife, true love means sticking thru thick and thin. what did she do to help? talk to his docs, send him to rehab, support him,what?what? what vampire and bats?hers?he was not that bad at the time of marriage. she did not care enough to stick around. look at her face. her nature shines thru. MJ was much more capable of love than she was. read Deepak Chopra 's post. he called MJ pure, look at MJ 's lyrics. this woman caused him much misery. hopefully, she pays for it. but, i should not say that. let God judge!i salute liz taylor for sticking with him thru thick and thin. she collapsed and she tried helping him. but, she was not MJ 's wife. both the wives failed him and used him!

Michael was born a very wise being having acknowledged that only him could be better than himself. So now he is gone and left everybody behind, the true and the pretentious.Those who trully loved him will surely feel very blessed to have known and got close to him. Those who did not should not worry, Michael would not have any space in his shuttle to heaven for the loveless.
