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

As the tragic news of Lisa Marie Presley’s passing shocks Hollywood entertainment, many people are thinking back on Lisa Marie Presley’s past, notably her romantic relationships.

Lisa Marie had a history of celebrity marriages, including one to the late musician Michael Jackson. She has been married to several famous men.

However, Lisa Marie and Jackson’s marriage suffered as evidenced by the fact that they divorced after just two years of marriage. In 1996, Lisa Marie decided to end her relationship with Michael Jackson, and she discussed this choice in an interview with the New York Times.

“I was still pretty young,” she explained, “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 suddenly become ‘Mr. Presley,’ or being with someone whose circumstance is comparable to mine.”

Similar to Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie Presley’s late father, Michael Jackson experienced a rapid rise to prominence. Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson both died a tragic death after being married to Lisa Marie for more than ten years. She acknowledged that she was sincerely remorseful for the breakdown of their marriage after he passed away.

Lisa Marie Presley expressed regret for failing to intercede to prevent Michael Jackson from following in the footsteps of her late father, Elvis Presley.

Elvis Presley said in an open and sincere Myspace blog post after Michael Jackson passed away in 2009 that MJ had expressed his worry that fame would take his life, just as it had killed Elvis’ many years before.

“I wanted to save him,” she wrote in her reaction post, published on I wanted to spare him from the unavoidable, which is exactly what has 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 went through a period when I couldn’t stop thinking about him and bemoaning the things I should have done better.”

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