Hanima Anand |Jul 06, 2020

The King of Pop got married twice in his life but both marriages remain controversies many years later. His first wife is the daughter of legend Elvis Presley but he left her for an ordinary nurse. The second woman couldn’t keep him either.

Michael Jackson is known as the ‘King of Pop’ – statistically the most awarded musician in pop music of all time with 13 Grammy Awards. However, behind that glamorous career is a controversial life story with his two short-lived marriages. Oddly enough, the choice of Michael Jackson wife in his two times is totally opposite; the first is the daughter of ‘The King’ Elvis Presley while the other is just a normal nurse with nothing worth of remark.

In this post below by Starbiz.com, you can read lesser-known facts about these Michael Jackson wives, their controversial sharing about marriage as well as surrounding information of his untimely death.

Michael Jackson's immense success comes with tremendous pressure from rumours & allegations.

The first Michael Jackson wife, Lisa Presley refused to have kids with him

Lisa Marie Presley (born in 1968) is the only child of Elvis Presley who was dubbed ‘The King of Rock n Roll.’ Her mother is Priscilla Presley, an American actress, and business magnate.

It is probably her family background that granted her so much spotlight since she was born. Till date, she is still a well-known figure who has married to four husbands in total.

Lisa Presley first got married to Danny Keough, her musical mentor, in 1988 but filed divorce in 1994. They shared two children with each other.

The marriage between MJ and Lisa Presley suffered strict scrutiny from the mass media.

Her second marriage, also the most famous and controversial one, was with Michael Jackson. She got married to MJ just 20 days after her divorce from Keough. At this time, Michael Jackson was also facing child molestation accusations but Lisa Presley determined to become his partner. Many people said that their marriage was nothing than a publicity stunt.

Despite others’ scrutiny, Lisa Presley used to share with the press that she believed Michael didn’t do anything wrong and she wanted to rescue him from the crisis.

“I wanted to save him. I felt that I could do it.’

The first Michael Jackson wife also worried about his health condition and drug addiction, so she persuaded MJ to go into rehabilitation. He did it.

The couple made the most famous family at the time.

After recovering from the crisis, Lisa Presley and Michael Jackson maintained passion love for each other in public but they didn’t have a child together. It was reported that Michael Jackson warned Lisa that he would leave for Debbie Rowe (his second wife later) if they had no kids.

And the warning became reality.

After their divorce in 1996, Lisa Presley used to explain why she didn’t share a child with Michael Jackson. It’s not because she couldn’t have kids, she just wanted to be sure.

“I was looking into the future and I was thinking I don’t ever want to get into a custody battle with him…I don’t want to do this, I don’t want to go head to head with him so I need to make sure that everyone around is good.”

She also said that she had two children from her first marriage, so she had to ensure “everything’s safe and secure and okay” before bringing kids into certain circumstances.

The sharing from the first Michael Jackson wife has surprised many fans as she was among the first ones to support Michael during the allegations but then she said this. Some conspiracy theorists even claim that the couple had never got married officially, or made love with each other. An assistant at their residence also revealed that Michael would throw some underwear on the floor and spray perfume to make it look like Lisa Marie had been in his bedroom but in fact, she slept on the guest beds or somewhere else.

Can't believe they went in separate ways after going through the worst days together.

Lisa, in a private conversation with her friend, also reportedly said that Michael Jackson “sang and screeched” his way to gain orgasm.

Having said that, she also affirmed that was a “consummated marriage” and she traveled all over the world with Jacko after the divorce, hoping to reconcile but it didn’t work.

Lisa Presley got engaged to John Oszajca in 2000 but left him for Nicolas Cage. Her marriage with Cage didn’t last long when Cage filed a divorce just 3 months after their wedding in 2002.

In 2006, Lisa married Michael Lockwood and gave birth to twins. They separated in 2016 though.

Who was the second Michael Jackson wife, Debbie Rowe?

Only when Michael Jackson announced her second marriage, people came to know the name of Debbie Rowe. So who was this second Michael Jackson wife?

Debbie Rowe was an ordinary dermatology nurse whom MJ met while treating for vitiligo by dermatologist Arnold Klein. There weren’t many reports on their love story but Debbie Row was already six months pregnant when they got married in 1996, the same year he divorced Lisa Presley.

Debbie gave him two beautiful babies, which he always longed for.

Michael Jackson first child was born in February in 1997, named Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. One year later, Debbie Rowe gave him another child in April 1998. Quickly, they got divorced in 1999, just silently as the way this second Michael Jackson wife came to his life.

No one was sure what happened or what had been dealt between them so that Michael Jackson had full custody of his children. Till 2004, Debbie Rowe appeared one more time to reverse the court decision after Jacko faced another allegation of sexual abuse. Even after that, hardly is there anyone who remembers she used to be Michael Jackson wife.

Debbie was reportedly the one to propose to bear MJ's child.

Debbie Rowe remains a lesser-known Michael Jackson wife. Hardly is there any information about her residence or career now. She was reported to get married first time in 1982 with a man named Richard Edelman. They divorced in 1988.

In 1996, after Jackson divorced with Lisa, he was upset and told his friend Arnold Klein that he might never become a father. Debbie Rowe was a longtime fan of MJ then proposed to bear his children. Lisa also knew this, saying that Debbie Rowe had a crush on him and wanted to have his kids.

About Michael Jackson family

Other than the facts around Michael Jackson wife, his complicated family backgrounds are also much discussed on the media.

Michael Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in a working-class African-American family. He was the eight out of ten children of the family who lived in a two-bedroom house in Gary, Indiana. His mother, Katherine, was a clarinet and piano performer while his father, Joe, was a former boxer and crane operator. Both of them had to work part-time to make ends meet.

Since he was a child, Michael was abused by his father, both physically and emotionally. Both Katherine and Joe admitted whipping Michael to keep him disciplined. Jacko, therefore, felt lonely and isolated during his childhood.
