Michael Jackson: Billet doux to Lisa Marie Presley pulled from auction
A love letter written by Michael Jackson to ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley in the '90s has been pulled from an auction.
Written sometime between 1993 and 1996, Jackson complains to Presley of being unable to sleep in this billet doux.
In one section of the note Jackson writes: "Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally (sic) in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first Im'(sic) crazy for you", according to Reuters.
MJ complained of the same inability to sleep to Dr Conrad Murray ahead of his 'This Is It' tour, for which Murray gave him prescriptions for Propofol, a powerful anaesthetic that eventually contributed to Jackson's death.
In an upcoming celebrity memorabilia sale, Julien's Auctions were planning to auction the letter, until Lisa Marie Presley formally asked them to withdraw the letter from the sale.
Darren Julien, an executive, has said: "I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature, and we want to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms Presley."
