Lisa Marie Presley set to write “shocking” tell-all book about Michael Jackson and Elvis

Lisa Marie Presley set to write “shocking” tell-all book about Michael Jackson and Elvis

Lisa Marie Presley is close to signing a blockbuster book deal which is said to reveal “shocking” details about her ex Michael Jackson while also providing a new perspective on her father, Elvis Presley.

Reported by the New York Post’s Page Six, Lisa Marie’s book is allegedly such an explosive piece of work that Gallery Books purchased it for between $4.3 million and $5.8 million.

An insider told Page Six that the book “promises shocking revelations about Michael Jackson and a completely new understanding of Elvis.”

The 51-year-old was married to the entertainer from 1994 to 1996.

They wed in secrecy as their ceremony was kept private before unveiling the relationship on MTV and splitting two years later.

Lisa sat down with Oprah Winfrey in 2010, providing a cryptic account for why the marriage was destined to fail: “There was a very profound point in the marriage when he had to make a decision. Was it the drugs and the sort of vampires, or me? And he pushed me away.” She then clarified that by “vampires” she meant “sycophants”.

She also said, “The one thing that correlates with Michael and with my father on this subject is that they have the luxury of creating whatever reality around them they wanted to create.”

However, despite their relationship ultimately not working out, Lisa believes that claims about Jackson’s inappropriate actions towards children are false, telling Diane Sawyer in 1995, “I know that he’s not like that.”
