Lisa Marie Presley reveals what her marriage to Michael Jackson was really like

An unauthorised biography has claimed that Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson spent their first night together at Donald Trump's Florida mansion.

The book Dark Lady by Anthony Gregoreli claimed that Presley, who was married to the King of Pop from 1994 to 1996, shared some X-rated revelations about her relationship.

Presley allegedly said that the night they spent at the mansion was "absolutely wild", the Mirror reported. "He was slow getting started, then he just wanted more and more."

The singer, now 51, also reportedly said that Jackson "sang and screeched" as they got intimate.

Presley filed for divorce with Jackson in January 1996, less than two years after their wedding.

In a 2010 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Presley said she and Jackson had "a normal marriage".

"It was one of the highest points in my life when things were going really well, and he and I were united," Presley, the only daughter of rock and roll icon Elvis Presley, said. 

"It was a very profound time of my life."

However, Presley revealed that her partner "pushed" her away at one point.

Presley said her then-husband was surrounding himself with "sycophants".

"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."

Presley insisted that Jackson "wasn't a bad person", but trouble was inevitable.

"He didn't know any better … I took it very personally, though," she said.

"I felt I was disposable. And it was the same with my father. Sometimes I sit and I think there have been times when I’ve been angry at the people around him. 'Why didn't you stop him? Why didn't you say something?' Well, because if you did, you were out. It's very simple."

Presley also revealed that after their divorce, she spent the next four years on and off with Jackson in an attempt to reconcile, but to no avail.

Jackson died from a fatal mix of medication in his system in June 2009 at his home in Los Angeles, US.
