On Thursday’s episode of The Oprah Show Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, on what’s to be her first televised interview in years, opens up to Lady O about Jackson’ 2009 death resulting from Propofol intoxication.
“Do you think you could have saved him?” Winfrey asked in a clip made available by the show on Wednesday.
“I think that was a train heading in a certain direction that no one could have stopped,” Presley said. “I’ve had to really get my head around that in order to stop the pain.
When asked if she thought Michael’s family let him down she replies,
“If he didn’t want you around, if you were going to make him confront something he didn’t want to confront, he could make you go away — including his own family,” Presley said.
Presley and Jackson were married for two years, 1994-1996. She has since been married twice and delivered twin daughters Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love on October 7, 2008.
