LISA Marie Presley is writing a book that will reveal secrets about her marriage to Michael Jackson, it has been reported.
The only daughter of Elvis Presley has signed a deal worth $4 million to lift the lid on her time married to the King of Pop, who she wed in a private ceremony in 1994 but divorced in 1996.
The 51-year-old has signed a deal with Gallery Books for between $3 million and $4 million.
The book “promises shocking revelations about Michael Jackson and a completely new understanding of Elvis,” a source told the New York Post.
Their unlikely marriage came as Jackson was facing unprecedented scrutiny about his private life – namely his string of close friendships with little boys.
The celebrity couple faced relentless rumours their relationship was a publicity stunt.
The allegations have returned with the release of HBO’s “Leaving Neverland,” which has resulted in the Jackson’s estate has taking legal action.
Though the marriage is covered in the film, Presley hasn’t yet commented.
In 2010, she offered a somewhat cryptic account of how the marriage ended in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“There was a very profound point in the marriage when he had to make a decision. Was it the drugs and the sort of vampires, or me? And he pushed me away.”
She explained that by “vampires” she meant “sycophants.”
Lisa Marie also told Oprah: “The one thing that correlates with Michael and with my father on this subject is that they had the luxury of creating whatever reality around them they wanted to create.”
Lisa Marie and Jacko’s weird marriage
The pair shocked the world by announcing to the world that they had married in a ceremony in the Dominican Republic in 1994.
It came one year after Jackson paid $22 million in an out of court settlement after being accused of abusing Jordan Chandler.
They’d first met in 1974, when Jackson was 16 and Presley was six, and had struck up a friendship as adults in 1992, speaking on the phone regularly since then.
But despite their long friendship, at the time of their wedding neither the press nor public was aware that the pair even knew each other.
The wedding was kept secret for two months until Presley confirmed the union in a statement declaring: “I am very much in love with Michael, I dedicate my life to being his wife.”
Throughout their marriage the couple often gave public displays of affection – which even extended into Jackson’s music career.
The video for his 1995 single You Are Not Alone – penned by R Kelly – was inexplicably filled with scenes of the couple lounging together naked.
But over the years strange anecdotes have emerged about their time together and rumours that the marriage was never consummated.
An ex-employee of Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch has claimed Jackson sprayed ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley’s underwear with perfume and scattered it around his room to create the illusion of a night of passion.
The pair remained friends after they spilt and were spotted together throughout 1997 and 1998 and she travelled with him on tour and spent her birthday with him.
In 2003, Lisa Marie insisted their marriage was genuine – if unorthodox.
In the past she has defended Jackson against child sex abuse allegations, insisting she believed in his innocence.
“I believed he didn’t do anything wrong, and that he was wrongly accused and, yes, I started falling for him,” she said.
“I wanted to save him. I felt that I could do it.”
Presley filed for divorce in early 1996, citing “irreconcilable differences” and noting in her filing that they had separated in December 1995, shortly after Jackson had been hospitalised after a collapse.
Lisa Marie has also been married to Danny Keough, Nicolas Cage and Michael Lockwood and has previously written about her past addiction to opiods.
