Lisa Marie Presley - Lisa Marie Presley Has Michael Jackson Letter Removed From Auction

Lisa Marie Presley has intervened to stop a letter written to her by ex-husband Michael Jackson going under the hammer at auction.
The note, handwritten by the late superstar, was reportedly penned between 1993 and 1996 and details Jackson's battle with insomnia which ultimately led to his death from a drug overdose in 2009.
The message reads, "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. I'm crazy for you."
The letter was due to be sold off by Julien's Auction in Beverly Hills, California, but the auctioneers have now removed the item after being contacted by Presley.
Auction house owner Darren Julien tells Tmz,com, "I'm assuming it's (of) a personal nature, and we wanted to honour the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley."
Next month (Jun12), the auction house will sell off the original tomb of Presley's superstar father Elvis.
The singer's crypt, where he was buried before his remains were moved to his Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee, will go under the hammer as part of the Music Icons auction, which begins on 23 June (12).

When Michael Jackson lived in Ireland he had NO problem to sleep, this has nothing to do with his insomnia in 2009. Michael Jackson was NOT a drug addict, the coroner ruled the case as a HOMICIDE which means that Murray committed a himicide. This has absolutely nothing to do with his past problems with insomnia.

Also Lisa Marie Presley is just a fame whore who always talked bad about Micahel Jackson during the years all over the media.

Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter not homicide. There is a difference legally and the coronor has no involvement in what charges, if any, are brought against anyone. What that means in terms of floonary law is irrelevant even though we realise they say anything to suit their own needs. As for him not being a drug addict, he was and it was proved in the trial by both prosecution and defence medical witnesses who confirmed Jacko asked if they were able to give him propofol. He even asked a nurse!!!!! The prosecution admitted it (listen to it before you deny that). Again in floonary land it's down to a case of selective hearing. Walgren's words were along the lines of he had no doubt that Michael Jackson was addicted to propofol and probably other substances and the trial was not his addiction but the supply and administration of drugs. Be aware of what your are saying before you say it becuase it just makes you look idiots, blinkered, totally ignorant but likely all 3. Saying something that is incorrect does not make it fact because it's how you need or want it to be. Opinions are not fact and what I have written is fact whether you like or agree to it. Fact Walgren said he had no doubt Jackson was a drug addict, fact Murray was not charged with any degree of homicide. Disputing or disagreeing only means you can't accept it.

I'm glad she decided to intervene. Everything from Michael's life should NOT be on the auction block. Just like his death bed that Ms.Katherine had to stop them from selling. If MJ wrote a "personal" letter to anyone, it should not go to the highest bidder.Certain things are OK, but Julian's and the estate really need to use some common sense when it comes to some things. Just like anyone else who has passed with has personal items left behind of importance they need to go to his family. These people will sell anything and how sad is that. The latest things is Elvis' old crypt. Somebody will be morbid enough to pay big bucks for it.

This article is so half written it's not even funny. The state of "Journalism" today makes me sick to my stomach. I actually went to school to be a Journalist and decided on a career else where because even then I thought that industry was horrendous. Now it's even worse. What ever happened to answering the questions-"Who, what, when, where and why? And even how?" The writer here hasn't even come close to doing that. Why you say-OK, was Lisa the one auctioning off the letter, only to change her mind? If she was, why did she change her mind? Was someone else auctioning it off and she found out about it and stopped it? If it wasn't her's and she found out about the letter and wanted to stop it-how did she find out? If Lisa wasn't the person who was auctioning it off, then who was? And how did they get it? Sorry I am just so sick and tired of half ass (and really it's even less than half ass here) reporting......

Mary Poppins, just wondering-who are you talking to? Because I only see 3 replies here, one being yours, one being mine, and one being another persons. None of us even mentioned a single solitary thing you mentioned here. Not a thing. That is a little scary on your part if you ask me.....

@KCAT - I agree this is only half a story. Ms Presley found out about the sale of the letter from an MJ fan on Twitter. It seems the letter was stolen a while ago and the auctioneers obviously have a duty to ensure that items put up for sale at their auction house are legitimate. Mr Julien suggests he has removed the item as a goodwill gesture, rather than a legal obligation - a charge of handling stolen goods would not be good publicity for a company known for their celebrity auctions.@jo98b...What an inanely stupid remark. Lisa Marie Presley had a famous father - she did not need Michael to make her famous and she has raraely sought the limelight. In fact she said that Jackson was the first man who made her feel like a normal woman, rather than Presley's daughter. Your jealousy and hatred is misguided, ignorant and petty. If you are a fan of the man, you should be ashamed of the way you speak of someone he cared about.
