There will be numerous items of Michael Jackson memorabilia going on the auction block next month, but a letter the late King of Pop wrote to Elvis' daughter won't be one of them.
Auctioneer Darren Julien has confirmed to ABC News Radio that the note, which was written in the '90s by Michael to his then-wife Lisa Marie Presley, has been pulled from the auction at the request of Lisa Marie. In a statement to ABC News Radio explaining why Presley asked for the letter to be taken off the block, Julien said, "I'm assuming it's [of] a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley."
According to published reports, the letter, which seems to indicate that Michael is suffering from insomnia, says, "I truly need this rest. I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days and I need to be away from phones and business people. I just take care of my health first. Im' crazy for you."
The Sports Legends and Music Icons, which includes collectibles from not only Jackson but also Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, Madonna and many more big names, will take place June 23 and June 24 in Beverly Hills, California, and online at JuliensAuctions.com.
