Presley Hurt By Rowe Baby Taunts

LISA MARIE PRESLEY and MICHAEL JACKSON's 18-month marriage in the mid-1990s started to crumble when the King of Pop told her his friend DEBBIE ROWE had offered to have children with him.
The rocker admits she was far from shocked when her then-ex announced his new wife Rowe was carrying his first child months after he divorced Presley - because he used to taunt her with the idea while they were married.
In a revealing TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, Presley says, "I knew it was a bit of a retaliatory act on his part because I didn't have a baby and I know that she was there the whole time telling him she would do it. He would tell me... 'If you're not gonna do it, Debbie says she'll do it.'
"I was like, 'What is that? Not gonna entice me,' so we would get into arguments because that really wasn't how to handle it - but that's how he knew how to handle it."
And Presley admits those arguments were the beginning of the end for the marriage: "I understand him so well now but, at that time, I was hurt and I did things that hurt him."
She reveals that her closeness with her former husband Danny Keogh, who she had two children with, was a big issue for Jackson.
Presley explains, "I was very torn because I broke up my family and I left my husband for Michael... While I was with Michael I was still trying to process what I had done... I felt, 'How could I have done that to somebody...?'
"Danny was still very much part of my life and Michael didn't know what to do with that sometimes and that made him uncomfortable. I would take a vacation and Danny would go and Michael would get upset.. and then he would disappear for a couple of weeks and I couldn't find him.
"We hit rough waters and we would argue - three-day arguments sometimes, taking a break to eat and sleep. I'd have to say that I really admire that he really gave it (our marriage) a good shot. I didn't appreciate it then and I wish I did."

YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE.....LMP, YOU'RE TOO LATE.........IF YOU HAD REALLY LOVED MICHAEL JACKSON YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE FOR HIM DURING HIS TRIAL, YOU DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP TO HELP HIM........YOU HAVE YOUR HUSBAND AND CHILDREN NOW, CONCENTRATE ON THEM AND LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE......HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR PRESENT HUSBAND FEELS LISTENING TO YOU GOING ON ABOUT MICHAEL..........YOUR EX........YOU JUST WANT TO PROMOTE YOUR ALBUM... IF YOU DIDN'T YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER MENTIONED IT ON NATIONAL TELEVISION....HOWEVER, YOU KNEW IF YOU WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON.... THE WORLD WOULD LISTEN, BECAUSE IN REALITY.......THAT'S WHO THE PUBLIC IS INTERESTED IN.......SO WHY COULDN'T YOU HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT HOW A GREAT HUMANITARIAN MICHEAL WAS......... NO ONE IS INTERESTED IN ALL THE OLD RE-HASH THINGS ABOUT DRUGS.........THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY CELEBRITY WHO GAVE SO MUCH OF HIMSELF TO THE WORLD AS MICHAEL JACKSON HAS......MICHAEL JACKSON DID SOME FORMIDABLE WORK IN HIS LIFE, THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT....WHAT DID HE DO AFTER EACH CONCERT, HE WENT TO HOSPITAL AND ORPHANAGES TO SEE SICK CHILDREN....... MOST CELEBRITY DON'T DO THAT, AFTER A CONCERT.........BUT MICHAEL JACKSON DID..........YOU DIDN'T THINK ABOUT MICHAEL THREE CHILDREN.... THEY WOULD LIKE TO HEAR OR READ SOME OF THE WONDERFUL ACTS OF LOVE THEIR FATHER DID FOR STARVING CHILDREN IN AFRICA......THERE WAS SO MANY GREAT THINGS THAT MICHAEL HAS ACCOMPLISHED IN HIS LIFE..... THAT'S THE KIND OF THINGS YOU "LMP" SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT.......IN YOUR INTERVIEW WITH "O" ON NATIONAL TELEVISION.......YOU HAD SUCH A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK KINDLY ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON AND YOU PASSED IT UP.............GO AND HAVE A GOOD LIFE WITH YOUR PRESENT HUSBAND AND YOUR CHILDREN......LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE......YOU'RE TOO LATE..........

Im sooo glad that she didnt want to have a baby with him...sad for him but in reality it would have been very bad for him with her lack of respect...it would have been very messy and I feel that she would have hurt him alot worse than she did with her actions!!!

I love reading what MJ fans across the world have to say on any topic. It just shows such loyalty and dedication, and I think Michael would love that. Another thing I would like to say, that even though we are a ‘tightly knit’ group, I believe that the “not-so-positive” comments, remarks and innuendos about anyone or here, or about other people who have done MJ wrong, must be toned down somewhat. Trust me; I understand where you all are coming from. I also am still angry since his passing and would like to see each person, company, business or individual who has ever wrongfully accused, disrespected, slandered, or deceived him, come to justice. However, if we are to call ourselves the MICHAEL JACKSON “Army of Love”, then as difficult as it may be for some of us, I feel that Michael would approve and appreciate more, a loving, dignified and “courteous” type of response to any form of negativity, information, rumor or news that has been disclosed and made public by the media. This includes to some degree (if it can be helped), chat-lines, texting, twitter and forum boards. Please remember, we are playing an important role as advocates on his behalf, and MUST apply professionalism within our attitudes, words and actions, accordingly. I know that sometimes it may be difficult to do. I myself have had times where I just wanted to kick and scream at any and everything that moves, due to the fact that I was having difficulty dealing with his death. Still dealing with. His presence remains with us, at these very boards and so we MUST remember to ask ourselves, “WHAT WOULD MICHAEL SAY OR DO IN THIS OR THAT SITUATION? HOW WOULD HE REACT TO THIS PERSON OR COMPANY??” Doing just this simple thing alone, by yourself or with friends, you will come to know ‘exactly’ what your next move will be, in any situation. I have done it and it works wonders!! I know most of you will agree with this, and some of you would probably think I am B.S**ing. If you think that then you will be insulting intelligence of his ‘Presence’ and his ‘Spirit’- WHICH BTW, DOES LIVE ON. However, at the same time we DO need to share and explore our feelings and sadness with other likeminded people, if possible ONLY as a reflection on how Michael would have conducted himself in that similar situation. I love all of Michael’s Fans, as I feel a “strong and unrelenting” strength of unity within you. As this is so, carry with you then this attitude and state of mind, knowing that you ALL are representing Michael for his messages, his humanitarianism and his LOVE. Don’t want to sound too preachy, but I think you all got what I’m trying to say here. “MJ SENDS HIS LOVE AND HIS BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL. HOLD YOUR HEADS UP HIGH AND FEEL PROUD, IN KEEPING THE FAITH IN HIM, AND IN HIS LOVE FOR US WE CAN HAVE JUSTICE AND PEACE FOR HUMANITY IN THIS WORLD. ONLY SEND L.O.V.E. AND BE THAT L.O.V.E. INSIDE YOURSELVES, ALWAYS."Blessings to all MJ Fans!!

She called Debbie Rowes pregnancy retaliatory (what an ego). So are Prince, Paris and Blanket retaliatory pawns in her imaginary, fairy tale, love affair she is having with Michael, in her mind? Was Nick Cage a retaliatory pawn? Is her new husband and children (children she refused to give to Michael, but had no problem giving to another man), are they retaliatory pawns also? Maybe Michael got another woman pregnant because Lisa was so obsessed with him, "He was so intoxicating, like a drug", that was the only way he could think of to get rid of her.

Pffffff. Does anyone understand me now? Why I don't like the soapopera's? Whell I guess now everybody who were bhooing Lisa Marie and Oprah is now bhooing them even more. Screaming that they should have been there for Michael when he needed it. But was she not a bit right? Maybe Lisa would have keep telling her self she was right if Michael didn't died. Aaaarhg, after someone dies comes the selfgrief revelations. But we are all human. People just have the nature to do so. And that's how soapopera's are created. But I gotta say that more intervieuws of these fine ladies in that way is not a good plan. It is selftorturing to think that you could have saved someone who was on the path of selfdestruction. It just don't work. Just bhoo it all away...... But the other information should have been very usefull. Didn't it? Cause everybody bhood Oprah and Lisa for doing this intervieuw.
