Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Eerie 'I Can't Sleep' Letter Pulled From Auction

A pretty bizarre Michael Jackson item up for auction has been stricken from the set of lots up for sale after a complaint from one of those involved. Lisa Marie Presley was the recipient of a rather unnerving letter from Jacko sometime between 1993 and 1996, in which the King of Pop described the beginnings of the ailment that would eventually lead to his demise.
"Smell here [arrow with box] Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days now," the letter reads. "I need to be away from phones and Business people. I must take care of my health first Im' [sic] crazy for you Love Turd."
The letter was due to be up for auction but Presley has called for it to be pulled, according to Tmz. It's pretty clear from the tone of the letter though that Jackson had struggled with sleep deprivation for years before he eventually hooked up with Dr Conrad Murray, who gave him Propofol - the drug that finally killed him in 2009. The auctioneer Darren Julien said, "I'm assuming it's a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley." Julien has been in the news a lot this week after it was announced that his firm would be auctioning off Elvis Presley's first crypt for $100,000.

It's a personal letter between two people that was stolen. I wish the media would just leave Michael Jackson alone since they try and say 'everything' that he did was "bizarre"! Sick of the negativity.

Why did Lisa Marie intervene with the sale if she was going to allow this letter to go. This proves why MJ couldn't trust anybody but his Mom and his kids. Lisa Marie is a traitor. She really didn't have to do this to Michael, but I guess I shouldn't be surprized at what she is capable of. SusanneMJ you have to understand trashing Michael Jackson is and for years has become some sort of sick joke or sport for people who either didn't like him, or for those who can make a buck off his name or the ones who were jealous and envious of his success! It's been that way for years and now that he can no longer defend himself it gives blatant idiots the power (?) to trash this dead man and his past. It proves the maturity level of some I guess!

Yes. I find it strange that just a personal letter from Michael to LMP saying he needed sleep because of the pressures in his life, though naturally would be guaranteed to attract attention, got into the auction in the first place? How did she know unless the auction people told her? I thought the press were going to stop calling him 'Jacko'. What low life treatment even though the poor man is dead. R.I.P. MJ.

What is eerie and bizarre is how did this personal private letter between Michael and his wife, get in the auction in the first place, how did LMP know about it, and why are the Press still calling him 'Jacko' despite pressure to stop? It does prove the pressure he was under and why he found sleep elusive. Anything about him still attracts unwanted attention although the poor man has been dead nearly three years. RIP. MJ.
