However, the marriage was short-lived, and the pair divorced in 1996. Years later, Lisa Marie reflected on her whirlwind romance with the singer and her decision to call it quits.
“I fell into this whole, ‘You poor, sweet, misunderstood man, I’m going to save you,'” she told Diane Sawyer during a 2003 ABC News interview. “You know, I fell into that. I fell in love with him. I did.”
As for the end of her union with Michael, who died in 2009, Lisa Marie said “it just kind of went really sour, really fast.”
“It was over the phone. I’d had enough,” she continued. “There was a lot of stuff going on then. It got really ugly at the end. It wasn’t pretty, but I don’t want to get into it.”
