Lisa Marie Presley updated fans on her blog at MySpace on Friday (June 26), talking about the death of her ex-husband Michael Jackson bringing “unstoppable tears” and being “overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date.” The daughter of Elvis writes:
I am going to say now what I have never said before because I want the truth out there for once.
Our relationship was not “a sham” as is being reported in the press. 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. Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much.
I wanted to “save him” I wanted to save him from the inevitable which is what has just happened.
His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn’t know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.
At that time, In trying to save him, I almost lost myself.
The entire post at MySpace has since been removed.
