Michael Jackson Lisa Marie marriage horror: MJ threatened ‘Give me a baby or Debbie will’
Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley discuss proposal in 1995
When the King of Pop Married the daughter of The King, the world looked on in shock and not a little disbelief. Actually, most people didn’t realise that the unlikely pair had already known each other for years and had become very close through a shared experience of fame and dysfunctional childhoods that few could understand. Even so, when Jackson joked at the September 1994 MTV Awards, “Just think, nobody thought this would last”, it proved unfortunately prophetic – and the couple separated barely a year later. The final straw came in December 1995, but Lisa Marie confessed that the problems went back far beyond that, including her husband’s most outrageous demand. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH LISA MARIE’S DRAMATIC INTERVIEW ABOUT HER MARRIAGE TO MICHAEL JACKSON
The couple separated on December 10, 1995, just four days after Jackson was hospitalised following a dramatic collapse, officially brought on by exhaustion and low blood pressure.
Lisa Marie’s decision to leave him might appear insensitive but it was prompted by her growing realisation that her husband’s self-destructive behaviour would not change. Furthermore, when she rushed to be with him at the hospital, Jackson only permitted her to be in the room for a strictly scheduled period of time.
She later said: “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 their divorce, Lisa Marie opened up about some of the most disturbing aspects of their relationship.
Elvis Presley’s daughter had left her first husband, Danny Keough, and two small children – four-year-old Danielle Riley and baby Ben – to be with Michael. She was still struggling with what she had done but Michael immediately began pushing for children.
Lisa Marie said: “I was trying to process what I had done. I could never feel good about it. How could I have done that to someone? And I had these two little ones…”
But not only was Michael pressuring her to have children, he threatened that Debbie Rowe else was waiting in the wings, ready and willing to bear his children
Debbie had met Michael Jackson while she was working for dermatologist Arnold Klein, who was treating the star for the skin pigmentation condition vitiligo.
Lisa Marie said that when she asked for more time before having children: “I know she (Rowe) was there the whole time telling him she would do it. He would tell me, ‘If you’re not gonna do it, Debbie said she’ll do it.’
“And we would get into arguments because that wasn’t how to handle it. But that’s how he knew how to handle it: ‘If you’re not going to do it, this person will. Are you going to do it or not?'”

Lisa Marie later said she had wanted to have children with Michael: “I just wanted to make sure. I was looking into the future and I was thinking, ‘I don’t ever want to get into a custody battle with him. I don’t want to do this, I don’t want to go head to head with him so I need to make sure that everything around is good.’
“I had children and I Knew bringing children into certain circumstances you have to make sure that everything is safe and secure and ok. And I wanted to make sure he and I were really, really united because we were going to be up against so much.”
Of course, as soon as they separated, Michael did exactly what he had threatened to do.
Michael announced Debbie Rowe was pregnant in October 1996, they married in November and Prince Michael was born in February 1997 (and presumably conceived around June 1996). Years later, Lisa Marie still believes the speed of it was partly directed at her.
She said: “I knew it was a bit of a retaliatory act on his part, because I didn’t have a baby.”
Michael also fathered daughter Paris with Debbie and had a third child, youngest son Blanket, with a surrogate.
