Jackson Tearful In Final Chat With Ex-wife Presley

MICHAEL JACKSON attempted a tearful reconciliation with his ex-wife LISA MARIE PRESLEY in 2005 and she now regrets her indifference to his need for love and help.
Presley, who was married to the King of Pop for two years in the mid-1990s, reveals Jackson reached out to her in a strange phone chat four years before his death last year (Jun09) - and it became the last time they talked.
In a candid TV chat with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in America on Thursday (21Oct10), she recalled, "It was a very long conversation and I was so removed from him and he could feel it and he could hear it... I was very distanced and he was checking to get a read. He was trying to throw a line out to see if I would bite emotionally. And I wouldn't. I was pretty shut off at that point.
"He wanted to tell me that I was right about a lot of the people around him... and he asked if I still loved him and we went into a whole thing about that, and I told him I was indifferent and he didn't like that word and he cried.
"And then the final part of the conversation was him telling me that he felt that someone was gonna try and kill him to get hold of his catalogue (of songs) and his estate, and I really didn't know what to do with that... He expressed to me his concern over his life."

Lisa,It is too bad you weren't there in his time of need. It was obvious you knew he had addiction issues. With the experience of your father, and not helping either one you must have trouble sleeping at night. Michael still loved you, that was very obvious and him contacting you after all this time should of been proof enough, and again you failed him. Had you reached out....he may still be here today. You will always question yourself...WHY DIDN'T I??? Hope you have a good answer.

I watched your interview LMP. It made me cry. What I wouldn't have given to be in your shoes. You were married to the King of Pop! I would have gone to the ends of the earth for this man. I wish you had reached out to him. All he wanted was for someone to love him unconditionally. I believe you loved him, but didn't really give it much of a chance. I know he taunted you about Debbie Rowe having his children, but I would have been HONORED, to have his children. He wanted so desperately, to have a real family. You could have given that to him! Do you realize what you missed out on? I know he had lots of idiocyncracies, and was stubborn as a mule, but it could have worked, if you were willing to stay with him at any cost. I do feel, that had you reached out to him, MJ would still be with us. I miss him soooo much! The world sure has lost a wonderful, and loving person.This world, and my heart will never be the same. To those people who took advantage of MJ's fame and fortune, I hope you burn in hell. That goes for anyone else who thinks of bad mouthing Michael. He was so kind and so giving. There will never be another like him. He was special. A gift from God. Humankind, didn't appreciate him, so God took him to a better place. My heart goes out to his family, and his children. Now those 3 kids, will have to grow up without their daddy. It's heartbreaking. Such a shame, and a waste. Michael wasn't finished to treating the world, to his talents. Our loss. Love you forever, Michael! You will never be forgotten! May God bless your children, and family. I hope you are looking down, and making sure, that whomever, had a hand in your death, that, they will come to swift justice. Rest in peace. I pray for you everyday. LS
