Michael and Lisa Marie were only married for 20 months, separating in December 1995. But they had been close for many years before that and Elvis’ daughter says they spent a further four years trying to rebuild their marriage. He sought in her someone who could understand the extraordinary level of fame and intrusion which shaped his whole life. After his shocking and sudden death on June 25, 2009, Lisa Marie made a public statement, describing how she had tried to save her husband and was “gutted” watching all her worst fears come true. Something which Michael himself had predicted to her would happen, many years earlier.
Lisa Marie had remained silent in public about their marriage, but when the news spread across the world that Michael had died, she posted a very raw statement.
Lisa Marie said: “I wanted to “save him” I wanted to save him from the inevitable which is what has just happened. His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn’t know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.
“I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him.”
“The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow.
“After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret.
“Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation. At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now.”
Years later Lisa Marie spoke to Oprah Winfrey to explain what she had been thinking and feeling at the time and how the years had altered her perceptions.

Lisa Marie also described how Michael had told her during their marriage his conviction he would die like Elvis.
She added: “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 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (A sight I never wanted to see again) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.”
