Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Eerie Letter Yanked From Auction

A note written by Michael Jackson to his ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, sometime between 1993 and 1996, has been pulled from auction at Presley's request. In the handwritten letter, Jackson complains of being unable to sleep - the same trouble he was trying to fix with the Propofol that eventually killed him in 2009, reports Reuters.
In the note written on yellow paper, Jackson eerily told his ex-wife, "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 Im'(sic) crazy for you". After meeting with Dr Conrad Murray ahead of his impending 'This Is It' tour, Jackson complained of the same problem and was prescribed Propofol, the powerful anaesthetic that eventually left the singer dead, and Murray in prison. Julien's Auctions - who were planning to auction the letter in a forthcoming celebrity memorabilia sale - said it had pulled the item at the behest of Presley. Chief Executive Darren Julien said, "I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature, and we want to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley".
The 'Thriller' star had struggled with insomnia for several years, and had pleaded for help from Dr Murray during a restless night at his home on June 25, 2009, the day he died.

No this letter isn't eerie( IT PROVES MJ HAVE A SLEEP DISORDER),now selling a crypt that's eerie. Why did Lisa Marie intervene in the sale of Michael's personal letter to her only to put it out in the public for everyone to see. Is she getting paid to do this? Embarrassing this man has become a sick sport for all who knew him especially the ones who claimed to have been his friends. now we know why he couldn't trust ANYONE EXCEPT HIS MOM AND HIS KIDS! This letter couldn't have been that important to her. Since it's obvious that her Ex-husband's life was a joke to her so let's see if she intervenes with the sale of her daddys crypt. NOW THAT EERIE.

if it was, it doesnt exculpate dr deathcant we all just give it a rest!!! stop torturing mj s family. mj would b really po'd at the way his family is treated by the press. soooooooooooooo, get off your duff people, give comfort to the family, and rest to mjps: 2 little 2 late. if it was real, the defense team would have jumped on. veracity is a problem dr death seemingly fails to understand. all the crap flying around about GOD and the holy spirit telling undoctor it would be ok may have been flim flam!!! God hears all prayers, however you may NOT have it fulfiled. in this case,mistook who was grinning from hell, it wasnt the holy spirit. more like a thunderbolt from heaven. his prayer was answered, in fraking prison

Is it a slow story day in the music world? Are they no living artists getting huge endorsements or making million dollar contracts? Isn't Adele setting some record somewhere? No? Perhaps this is actually the issue because there is nothing "eerie" regarding a note to a loved one explaining that they are having issues sleeping. Articles like these have battered Michael Jackson for decades with words like "eerie" "strange" "odd" "freak" "weird" and an unnecessary inclusion for what reason? Labeling is a way of dehumanizing a person. The bullying of Michael Jackson by the media is documented and it is indicative of a society without empathy and compassion. This should not be an acceptable practice and it needs to stop. What does this teach the youth? This is why children who are beseiged by taunters, being labelled, devalued and dehumanized are commiting suicide- When will we ever learn?

Can you people never stop?!! Michael's life was troubled in more ways than any of us could possible know. There is nothing "eerie" about reaching out to your wife for comfort.

We knew he suffered from insomnia even though he was able to sleep while was in Ireland, there is no point in the letter if not that of serving to the purpose for which it was put up for auction then yanked to gain publicity.

He was able to sleep in Ireland becasue he was not rehearsing for a concert there. He was relaxing and enjoying his children.

I think the Joker put it out at this time to give LMP a bit of embarrassment.... God knows she had her go at humiliating him in her various interviews over the years.... whether she was put up to it or not. What goes around will always come around.... eventually. Why should any of em get off the hook!
