MICHAEL Jacksons former wife Lisa Marie Presley said he once predicted he would 'end up dying like her father Elvis. Miss Presley described how she once discussed her fathers death from a heart attack in 1977 with Jackson. 'At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did. Miss Presley tried to deter Jackson from the idea, but said he shook his head and nodded 'as if he knew what he knew and would not be dissuaded. As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play the exact scenario I saw happen on August 16, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (a sight I never wanted to see again), just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted, she said. Presley added that she and Jacksons family had tried to save him from 'the inevitable, which is what just happened. Writing in her MySpace blog, she also denied rumours her relationship with Jackson was 'a sham. She said they split up because she could not save him from his self-destructive behaviour. She said she was 'overwhelmed with sadness at his death. 'I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behaviour and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him, she wrote. She called it an 'unusual relationship but added: 'Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much. Presley is the only daughter of the 'King of Rock 'n Roll Elvis and was a performer in her own right.Her father died at the age of 42 of a heart attack after years of drug use. Presley married Jackson in the mid-90s but they were together for less than two years. DM
