Michael Jackson love letter to Lisa Marie Presley pulled from auction

By
A letter written by Michael Jackson to ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley in the '90s has been pulled from an auction.

In the letter, written sometime between 1993 and 1996, Jackson complains to Presley of being unable to sleep.

According to Reuters, 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."

Jackson 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.

Julien's Auctions were planning to auction the letter in an upcoming celebrity memorabilia sale, until Lisa Marie Presley formally asked them to withdraw the letter from the sale.

Executive Darren Julien said: "I'm assuming that it's because the note is of a personal nature, and we want to honour the request and continue our good relationship with Ms Presley."

The auctioneer will be putting up the Memphis, Tennessee crypt of Elvis Presley for sale, at a starting bid of $100,000 (£64,900).
