Presley Faces Tough Questions About Jackson On Oprah

OPRAH WINFREY had rocker LISA MARIE PRESLEY recoiling in shock on her daytime talk show yesterday (29MAR05) when she asked if she'd ever had sex with MICHAEL JACKSON.

The talk show titan asked the question Presley has never answered when she posed, "Was it a consummated marriage?" referring to her guest's odd pairing with the King of Pop.

A stunned Presley shot back, "Oh my god, Oprah!" as audience members drew a deep breath, leading Winfrey to joke, "You all know damn well you wanna know."

Presley then answered the question with a simple, "Yep," adding, "To me, yes it was (real)."

But the shock wasn't over there - the singer's mother PRISCILLA PRESLEY, who joined her for the candid interview, stated, "I do think there was an agenda there... because he wanted children and he wanted her children."

The rocker shot her mother a furious look, and said, "Mother, what are you doing right now?"

Previously on the show, Priscilla told Oprah that she had always struggled with her daughter's romance with the King of Pop, which led to a 1994 wedding ceremony she wasn't invited to.

She said, "There's something very calculating and manipulative about how he does things... I mean there's Graceland and there's Neverland - there's a whole thread that goes into what he does.

"I want to believe he did (love her) because I would hate to believe that it was only for one thing, whether it be to maintain his popularity or to be associated somehow to her and her father. It's just hard for me to believe that people do that."
