Lisa Marie: Michael Said He'd End up Like Elvis

6/26/2009 1:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Marie Presley -- who was briefly married to Michael Jackson back in the 90's -- said MJ once predicted he was headed down the same path as Elvis ... who died at the age of 42 after battling addiction to prescription drugs.

Lisa Maire Presley

On her blog this morning, Lisa Marie said Michael once told her: "I am afraid that I'm going to end up like [Elvis], the way he did." She goes on to say, "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."

Lisa Marie also said despite what people think, her marriage to Michael wasn't a sham.

What a FREAK n Joke the both of them . The man was obviously sick ...only educated people have came forwarded to tell the truth. If these celebs are really true friends to this Man/Boy ...he would have gotten help for his mental and physical addiction...

Maybe their marriage wasn't a sham to Lisa Marie, but you can't tell me Michael was sincere about marrying a woman. Besides the timing was right after Michael was accussed of doing no-no's with a young boys pee-pee. That kiss between Michael & Lisa Marie was the most awkward thing I ever seen. Kind of like when Anna Nicole was forced to kiss Howard when they were on Larry King Live trying to get people to believe they were in love. I just don't buy eiither of these fake romances.

I don't think Elvis or Michael understood in the end just how many lives they touched and how truly loved they were by millions . All the media ever did toward the end was poke fun of and ridicule both men. They both had demons and we may never know the full story in either case, but what they contributed to music won't ever be forgotten. Critics die every day, but true legends never die.

#1 Doesn't it seem ironic that they do all these anti-pot commercials and go out of their ways to tell us how dangerous marijuanna is, but I've never heard a celebrity OR ANYONE dying from smoking a joint.

Michael Jackson was a tragic figure, looking for Love ( and acceptance ) in all the Wrong places, especially in the Entertainment Field; An Industry that preys on the dysfunction of the stars that it chews up and spits out, as well as their fans.
The quick fix of 'Fame & Fortune' are never enough to fill the void in a child's heart, when that child gets anything less than unconditional love, acceptance and encouragement very early on, ( or later on through trial and introspection ) and learns to have self respect. Drugs can never numbed the pain for long enough.
RIP Dear Michael. You no longer have to go to such lengths to be anything BUT who you were at birth,
an amazing, good looking, bright, sensitive talented black child of God.
It appears to me that Michael, more than anything, died of a ' broken heart.'
There is an old Christian saying, that applies to all people of all faiths:
" Seek ye first the Kingdom Of God, and everything else will be added unto You"
We can all take a lesson from this tragic death and our loss of this entertainer.

Well when you live the way they did, growing up very poor and then becoming so rich and famous so quickly it is just hard to handle. While I am a huge Elvis fan, I thought Michael was so talented. The other thing is that they both had people around them that just did as they were told and had "personal" dr's at their feet giving them whatever they wanted. In the day of Elvis knowledge of prescription drugs being so dangerous wasn't as known as it is today. I bet that when the reports come back it will be from drugs. To me Elvis was the greater singer, Michael of course the better dancer. They both had that something but Michael was just so strange, Elvis was so cool and handsome at the end michael looked like a freak, a side show attraction, I know everyone says Elvis was fat, but he only weighed 235, which for a man is not alot it was just from the pills that he looked worse, the bloating. Well fame can be a killer that's for sure.

Bless you Lisa!! And May Michael and of Course Elvis rest in peace.. It is such a shame how most of the people are saying bad things about Mike and its sad... The man is dead.. You can't honestly tell me you never listened to his music or ever danced to it... Hmm Nah I know you can't.. Society is cruel and it rules His song Said it all doesn't matter if your black or white.. we only have one life on this earth and to be so dam cruel and heartless is beyond me.. maybe you all bad mouthed people should go visit the war and then come back and see how you feel and what bad you have to say about people.. Opps maybe you will be worse...
