Presley Realised Jackson Was On Drugs Just Before She Filed For Divorce

LISA MARIE PRESLEY began to suspect her ex-husband MICHAEL JACKSON had a drug problem just before she filed for divorce from the King of Pop in 1996.
After 18 months of marriage to the pop superstar, Presley realised Jackson wasn't always as clear and sober as he should have been and she started to put the pieces together after he collapsed onstage at a rehearsal for a TV show in late 1995.
In a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in America on Thursday (21Oct10), the former Mrs. Michael Jackson said, "He was in the hospital... Everybody flew to the hospital - it was very confusing what was wrong because every day there was a different report and I couldn't tell what was happening: dehydration, low blood pressure, exhaustion, a virus. I couldn't really get a straight answer as to what was happening with him.
"At that point, I think I really got, from various indications... I believed that that (drug uses) was going on then.
"There were times when I would pick him up from a certain doctor's office and he would not be coherent and there was some behaviour... he would need certain things... for injections or whatever various dermatological (issues)."
And Jackson's well-documented insomnia issues had also come to light during the marriage.
Presley added, "He was like a little gnome... running around the room, because it was hard for me to sleep. A lot of times I couldn't sleep either if he wasn't sleeping... It was a bit endearing and I didn't mind it but he did have a hard time sleeping."

Lisa is LYING yet again. Her mother and family would NOT have approved of her having bi-racial children. She KNOWS this. Why skate around the issue? Embarassed. Give me a break. Lisa filed for divorce because Michael went to have babies with another woman. He would NOT take her back and she became bitter over it.

Michael was a loving, giving and forgiving wonderful man, leave well enough alone and remember Michael the way he should be, he would be hurting over this and especially coming from Lisa-marie but at the same time he would forgive and endure this, Michael i and the people who adore you are and will stand up for you.

I just don't believe Lisa Marie is sincere. She knew Michael wanted to have kids, but she didn't want to have bi-racial children it is just that simple. What did she really try to do to help Michael? Michael Jackson was a beautiful soul just too good for this earth and there were a lot of people who hurt him and Lisa Marie is one of those people who truly hurt Michael.
