Darren Julien complies with Lisa's request, saying, 'I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature.'
Lisa Marie Presley didn't allow the letter once sent to her by her former husband Michael Jackson to be sold to public. The personal note was supposed to be auctioned off by Julien's Auctions during its "Music Icons" memorabilia sale, but the daughter of Elvis Presley pulled it from the auction.
"I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature," Darren Julien said in a statement. "And we want to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley."
In the letter, Michael complained to Lisa about how he was in desperate need of sleep. "Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally (sic) in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first Im'(sic) crazy for you," he told her.
The auction itself will run June 23 and 24. Elvis Presley's original crypt, a robe worn by Amy Winehouse in her "Rehab" music video, a cigarette packet signed by The Beatles and Chinese ceramic dogs from Meat Loaf's collection are among the items that will be sold at the upcoming event.
