This was Lisa Marie Presley’s greatest regret before her death.

Many people are reflecting on Lisa Marie Presley’s past, particularly her love relationships, as the tragic news of her death sends shockwaves through Hollywood entertainment.

Lisa Marie has previously been married to several well-known people, including famed musician Michael Jackson. Other noteworthy men are among her other husbands. However, public attention proved to be damaging to Lisa Marie and Jackson’s relationship, as seen by their divorce after only two years of marriage. Lisa Marie spoke about her decision to leave her relationship with Michael Jackson in 1996 in an interview with the New York Times.

“I was still pretty young and trying to decide what would be better for me: being with someone who has nothing and then gets trampled and has no ego because they just become ‘Mr. Presley,’ or being with someone whose circumstance is comparable to mine,” she explained.

In numerous ways, Michael Jackson’s ascent to fame paralleled that of Lisa Marie Presley’s late father, Elvis Presley. Michael Jackson, who had been married to Lisa Marie for over a decade, died in the same horrific accident as Elvis Presley. She admitted after he died that she was deeply sorry for their divorce.

Lisa Marie Presley expressed regret for failing to intervene to save Michael Jackson from the same fate as her late father, Elvis Presley.

Following Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, Elvis Presley revealed in an open and honest blog post on Myspace that MJ had stated his fear that fame would take his life, just as it had killed Elvis many years previously.

“I wanted to rescue him,” she said in a reaction essay published on I intended to protect him from the unavoidable, which is what has just occurred.”

“Even though I genuinely loved him and attempted to halt or reverse it in some manner, the decision to walk away and let his fate have him was one of the hardest choices I have ever been forced to make. After the divorce, I couldn’t stop thinking about him and regretting the things I should have done better.”

Lisa Marie appeared to demonstrate her grief at Michael Jackson’s funeral, where she was photographed sobbing alone next to her friend’s casket. When asked by Express in 2021 if she found “peace” at the videotaped moment, Lisa Marie replied, “It was more like I wanted to apologize for not being around.”
