Michael Jackson's ex Lisa Marie Presley chillingly predicted the pop star's death, doctor claims
The King of Pop has dominated headlines since the release of the controversial documentary Leaving Neverland in January.
In it, two former child friends of Micheal Jackson, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, claimed that the singer sexually abused them - despite testifying in his defense at his 2005 trial.
This is the moment Jackson was filmed buying a "wedding ring" with a boy:
Now, hot on the heels of fans criticizing the accusers for speaking out after Jackson's death, a doctor has revealed that his ex-wife, Lisa Marie Presley, actually predicted the overdose that would kill him.
The now 51-year-old confronted the doctor who first introduced Jackson to sedative drugs, Neil Ratner, saying: "Doctors killed my father, and I won't let them kill my husband."
The incident happened in 1995, a year into Presley's two-year marriage to Jackson.
Lisa Marie's father, Elvis, died at the age of 44 from a heart attack after abusing prescription drugs for years.
Presley's intervention was revealed in Ratner's newly-released book Rock Doc.
The doctor wrote that he met Jackson's then-wife at a hospital where he administered the star with Propofol after he collapsed in rehearsals from dehydration and low blood pressure.
"Lisa Marie didn’t stay long. As she came out of Michael's room, she walked over to me and asked if we could speak.
"She came right to the point. 'I don't know who you are but I don't like so many doctors around Michael'. Before I could respond, she got right in my face. 'I don’t like doctors, doctors killed my father, and I won't let them kill my husband'."
Ratner admits that he was the first doctor to introduce the star to the prescription drugs which would end his life.
However, Conrad Murray was the physician responsible for Jackson at the time of his death. He was subsequently incarcerated for involuntary manslaughter.
