MJ Knew He’d Die Like Elvis: Lisa Marie
Lisa Marie Presley, has claimed that Michael Jackson knew he was heading down the same slippery slope as her father Elvis, whose life was cut short after battling an addiction to prescription drugs.
Writing on her blog, Lisa Marie claims that her one-time husband once told her: "I am afraid that I'm going to end up like [Elvis], 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."
The LA County Coroner, who has held a press conference to announce the completion of MJ's autopsy, claimed there was evidence the super star had been taking prescription medicines, while adding there was no trauma to Michael’s body or “indication of foul play”. The official cause of Michael’s death will not be announced for another month, until more testing is carried out, including a toxicology report.
Meanwhile evidence revealing the full extent of Michaels alleged dependency on prescription drugs are coming to light, including a lawsuit filed against the singer back in 2007 for unpaid pharmacy bills.
We’ll keep you posted.
