Jackson Knew He'd Die Like Presley
MICHAEL JACKSON had an odd premonition he'd die just like his ex-wife LISA MARIE PRESLEY's tragic father - and constantly told her of his fears when the two were married in the mid-1990s.
Presley was chilled when she heard the King of Pop had died from an overdose of powerful anaesthetic Propofol last year (Jun09) - because in many ways the tragedy mirrored that of her father's passing in 1977.
And her ex-husband's fateful words came back to haunt her.
In a candid TV chat with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in America on Thursday (21Oct10), Presley explained, "When I was watching the footage of the ambulance backing out of the driveway, I went back to this conversation I had with him (Jackson) at Neverland in the library; we were sitting by the fire.
"He was telling me that he was afraid that he was gonna end up like my father. He was always asking me about when he died and how it happened."
And Presley still can't believe how many similarities there are in the drug-related deaths of the two men she loved: "Down to the play-by-play-by-play incident, it was identical.
"It really blows me away to be honest with you. I still try to figure out what is it that I had to go through it twice, where these two incredible people... had the same fate. What is it about me? I went through it once and that was painful and I went thought it again and I don't quite understand it."
