Lisa Marie Presley "Didn't Understand" Michael Jackson Relationship

Sixteen months after Michael Jackson's death, his ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley finally opened up about their much-scrutinized marriage. "I didn't understand my relationship with him," Presley, 42, confessed on The Oprah Winfrey Show Thursday. Though skeptics have labeled their 18-month marriage a sham, Presley insisted it was the real deal -- though she understands why Jackson's behavior might cause people to question its validity. "To some degree, he was a master at manipulating the media," she said. "I understand that nobody really knew who I was. They just assumed I was going along with something he would be doing....I understand it better now. The manipulation was a survival tactic for him." After Jackson's death in June 2009, Presley said she's "come to have all this love again and understanding for him. I don't know why it had to take all that to have this happen. That upsets me a bit." But Jackson's ex-wife admitted she didn't always have such warm feelings for the King of Pop, whom she divorced in 1996. "I was very angry. I was so angry," she revealed. "I felt that we were so united, and then at some point he pushed me out." According to Presley, part of the reason she felt distant from Jackson was due to his increased drug use, which he attempted to keep a secret. "I didn't really suspect and catch on until just before I filed for divorce. There was just an occasion, an incident where he had collapsed and he was in the hospital," she recalled. Though doctors blamed it on a viral infection, Presley said that "every day there was a different report. And I couldn't tell what was happening. I couldn't really get a straight answer about what was happening with him, and I think we were all a little bit in the dark." Looking back, Presley wondered if she could have potentially saved her estranged ex-husband's life. "I know it's naive to think that I could have, but I wanted to," she admitted. "Had I made a call, had I stopped being so shut off from him, had I just said 'How are you?' I really regret that I didn't."

In the end we must all agree Michael Jackson did this to himself. His handlers were enablers. Lisa Marie could not stop him, no one could, in the end he probably died at his own hand. The doctor gave him the meds and is a part of that and should be held accountable. A very sad end to such a great talent, same rings true for Elvis Presley. Lisa Marie looks like she's got a major attitude problem. She always looks so "angry" when she's talking to people. I watched Oprah interview Lisa Marie and thought she gave an interesting and thoughtful interview. You could certainly feel her pain. Have never seen any pictures of her twins. Would love to see them. I dont wish bad things on people I just wish people would have noticed him as much as they do now that he is dead. No one cared until he past away it makes me so upset becuase people dont care till he was gone. thank about his kids everyone is thinking about them selfs not about his kids had to grow up with out a dad. Hind sight is always 20/20 but in all reality you/we could not have helped our loved ones. We have tried. The real trial is for us to remember that every day! Talk about accenuating the negative of the interview in this article. horrible read. Sounds like Crystal needs some serious therapy!!! Why would you want everyone to suffer like he did? You must lead a very sad and lonely life to be so bitter and angry like you are! You are not the only one who loved Michael and thought that he was an exceptional human being! Many people did and still do. The difference is that we don't wish horrible suffering on others like you do. Get some help!...
