TMZ reported today that they have received a copy of a letter Michael Jackson wrote to Lisa Marie Presley — complaining about not being able to sleep. The letter has been yanked from the auction block after Lisa Marie did not approve of the letter being auctioned off.
The letter — written sometime between 1993 and 1996, reads as follows: “Smell here [arrow with box] 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 Love Turd.”
So Julien’s Auction in Beverly Hills — the same company selling off Elvis’ crypt — has capitulated to Elvis’ daughter. Owner Darren Julien tells TMZ, “I’m assuming it’s a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley.”
