A note written by Michael Jackson to his ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, sometime between 1993 and 1996, has been pulled from auction at Presley's request. In the handwritten letter, Jackson complains of being unable to sleep - the same trouble he was trying to fix with the Propofol that eventually killed him in 2009, reports Reuters.
In the note written on yellow paper, Jackson eerily told his ex-wife, "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". After meeting with Dr Conrad Murray ahead of his impending 'This Is It' tour, Jackson complained of the same problem and was prescribed Propofol, the powerful anaesthetic that eventually left the singer dead, and Murray in prison. Julien's Auctions - who were planning to auction the letter in a forthcoming celebrity memorabilia sale - said it had pulled the item at the behest of Presley. Chief Executive Darren Julien said, "I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature, and we want to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley".
The 'Thriller' star had struggled with insomnia for several years, and had pleaded for help from Dr Murray during a restless night at his home on June 25, 2009, the day he died.
