Michael Jackson

Creepy 'I Can't Sleep' Letter

Yanked from Auction

5/30/2012 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A letter Michael Jackson wrote to Lisa Marie Presley -- complaining about the problem that ultimately killed the singer -- has been yanked from the auction block after Lisa Marie pitched a fit.

Lisa Marie has not said why she wanted the letter pulled, but it's pretty clear -- Michael struggled with sleep deprivation for years until he found a quick fix in the form of Propofol.

The letter -- written sometime between 1993 and 1996, reads as follows: "Smell here [arrow with box] Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and Business people. I must take care of my health first Im' [sic] crazy for you Love Turd."

As TMZ first reported, Jackson was doctor shopping for Propofol before he hooked up with Conrad Murray.

So Julien's Auction in Beverly Hills -- the same company selling off Elvis' crypt -- has capitulated to Elvis' daughter. Owner Darren Julien tells TMZ, "I'm assuming it's a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley."

We can read between the lines.

Michael Jackson loved her because he knew that she would always look like a 12 year old boy.

I love you more than anything Michael    

PLEASE READ.FIRST OF ALL.Everyone, who you are commenting on by writing, 'creepy handwriting, sounds sick' and bla bla bla, has shown his ability to everyone in all fields, no matter what his handwriting is, he is sensational,his thoughts are different from his handwriting, you have heard that his childhood was stolen and given to stardom, BUT you have also learnt that he has not secured the education he deserved. HE HAS PROVED himself, he is far more intelligent than the people who SIT on their ****ing ass'es and criticize him. REMEMBER. Whatever he has done (Breaking phenomenal records, giving his money to the needy) NO ONE IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC (and other) has done. (BTW instead of finding his words creepy, feel sad for his situation, he was sleep deprived, working day&night to satisfy his fans needs.)
So please mind you're words.
And where as LMP, she has ridiculed and crossed all her limits.I don't think she has received any great achievement for leaking out her personal matters even after MJ trusting her.
Was she trying to show . God knows when will she let him Rest In Peace.
And THOSE WHO HATE MY COMMENT. My thoughts won't change, i will just think you have no heart. :)

This letter looks as if was written by a child. Oh wait, Michael Jackson was a child in a way. This man/boy was too full of himself to get the right help that he needed. All the people around him babied him when he finally broke away from his awful Father. He let himself be babied and coddled like a toddler. His demise was of his own creating then.

Nothing creepy about the letter. The nickname is between them, so is the "smell box" - probably one of the perfumes he loved, but that's their business. We shouldn't be able to see people's private letters.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Michael, nice and wonderful person. I looked at you, if you have not slept for several days and nights, working to exhaustion. And even in this situation he finds the words to tell your loved one, who need to know only two.

I still remember in an Oprah interview after Michael's death, they played a clip from an interview when they were recently divorced, asked her: What did you say when you married Michael Jackson? She answered: HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!! And she was laughing about it. Poor Michael!

very sad to realize how much Michael needed help and how much he was ripped off instead by greedy bastards like Dr. "Lazarus" Murray.

What is so darn creepy about this letter?????? Absolutely nothing.

It was a sweet & private note to his then wife Lisa, nothing "creepy" about it.

What I would like to know is how Julien's came to be in posession of it as they have so many of Michael's personal effects.

So many money grubbing thieves and robbers....
