There have been quite a few questions about whether Lisa Marie Presley (Michael Jackson’s former wife), was at the July public memorial service held at the Staples Center, or at the September burial at Forest Lawn.

Lisa Marie Presley was not at the public funeral service for Michael Jackson.

She was, however, present during his private entombment at Forest Lawn.

This statement was released by Lisa Marie Presley shortly after Michael Jackson’s death:

Friday, June 26, 2009

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 Fathers Death.

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.

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 LA 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.

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.

He was an incredibly dynamic force and power that was not to be underestimated.

When he used it for something good, It was the best and when he used it for something bad, It was really, REALLY bad.

Mediocrity was not a concept that would even for a second enter Michael Jackson’s being or actions.

I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him.

I was in over my head while trying.

I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision.

The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow.

After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret.

Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation.

At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now.

As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play The exact Scenario

I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (A sight I never wanted to see again) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.

Any ill experience or words I have felt towards him in the past has just died inside of me along with him.

He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together.

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.

I really needed to say this right now, thanks for listening.

    And of course I know it isn’t true! Just remember I will love you always and love you more than anyone else!

  8. carla says:

    I love you so much! And I’ll love you for who you are!

  9. Mikaella says:

    I also wanted to save him from them. He was a child at heart because he didn’t lived a normal life. He was killed by the harsh public. That’s why he was misunderstood by many. He was kind to those kids and their families but they just took advantage of him and accused him of child molestations and other different controversies that is not even prooven! He was truly a kind person although I don’t know him personally. I hate how everyone is judging him even after his death! Michael, just remember that I will always love you for who you are! I hope that you are happy now in Heaven with God..And at last you won’t experience sadness and depression there..Just remember we will always love you, especially ME! I LOVE YOU!

    Lisa was always full of it, she and her mom say they are into action, but all they did was naked gun, wow, they overworked themselves!

  11. Eric Mora says:

    It is OK now Lisa. Michael has taught me a lot about love, kindness, and compassion. I have never met him in person. Nor have I been the greatest fan. I cant spew a wealth of facts about his life and career. All I can say is that he was a beautiful soul that brought kindness and love to the world. Never again will there be anyone like him. My heart aches. Thank You Michael. You will be missed deeply.

  12. ileana says:

    all these words that she say now, are gently, and i admire her that she had the strength to do or try to do something for him, but wasn’t sufficient. I love him more than anything, and i know that I’d loved him with all his “bad or good”, but Lisa given up on him, not when she walked away because her’s childrens were more importants (and I’m verry agreed), but when she talks verry bad about her domestique life as husband and wife with Michael.Since his death, and now, in this verry moment, I’m listening and listening only Michael. I don’t know nothing about politics, about knews from the world, I’m stocked in his music and in his memory. Sorry for my english.

  13. gertrude says:

    Of anyone, I think you, Lisa Marie, could have rolled with it and made a beautiful life with Michael IF IF IF you had ever gotten the support and information you needed to partner someone who had been so awfully abused and deprived of childhood, because of your unique position as one of the only other people on the planet who had come from the kind of rare life circumstances you both did. If you had both had access to the information you needed to understand the necessity for him to heal his traumas and wounds by experiencing the childself he was never allowed to, you may have both been able to negotiate that path into healing and peace together. But that was not in the cards and so there were other things for you both to learn from the road you both did end up on. We are in school here in this realm of existence. After you parted I think you made statements about him at times that stemmed from no access to the information needed to understand him justly, and those statements misrepresented him – but what else was to be expected under the circumstances? We could all educate outselves a lot better rather than be so quick to condemn what we dont understand. Michael is in heaven, and you will be too someday.

Your love was felt around the world. I wouldnt want to even imagine life without the privilage of the precious memories you have left us with. It has been a year since your death,but it only seems like yesterday. The pain of loseing is still very fresh. I will always love you….You are my heart.

    Michael Jackson was my idol! never seen a dancer, singer, lyricist, musician & above all a good human-all in 1 person…. he just rocks!!! no 1 can even match him… love u MJ……4 ever….

  18. hazel says:

    Just want to say i understand to Lisa Marie. You can only help someone so much. Michael wanted to do things his way. It was his character. No one can be helped unless they want to be. I truly miss and love Michael but, in the end, it was his decision. I don’t think anyone understands that.

  19. Angelina says:

    Lisa,as you have mentioned the deep love & affection between you & Michael,I would like to inform you that I know this well,cause it really comes out & discloses itself in every video,picture & so on where ever you both are spotted together.
    I’m deeply sad & dishearten due to this early & unexpected death of our beloved MJ, but fate can never be deceived.I hope MICHAEL is in a far better place now.We all love him.He was an amazing talent & an incredible human being without a match.Any way, it was really nice to read a note on your feelings towards Michael.I’m truly touched & moved by your words & convinced that your love for him still persists, cause its true that the body can die but soul can never & neither the love contained in it.
    MICHAEL DESERVES TO BE LOVED.
