Michael Jackson would shriek 'don't look at me' if he wasn't wearing make-up before or after sex
According to the book 'Michael Jackson: The Magic And The Madness', the late musician and Marie Presley had an "intense and active" sex life
Michael Jackson used to scream "don't look at me" if he wasn't caked in make-up before and after sex with his ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, claims a book written by the singer's friend.
The daughter of Rock n Roll legend Elvis Presley tied the knot with the King of Pop in 1994 and they were together until 1996.
Jackson's sex life has come under scrutiny after the airing of HBO's 'Leaving Neverland', in which 40-year-old James Safechuck and 36-year-old Wade Robson claimed that the late superstar sexually abused them when they were young boys.
In his book 'Michael Jackson: The Magic And The Madness,' Jackson's childhood friend of 40 years, J. Randy Taraborrelli, says that Presley told her friends that she found him "hot stuff in bed" and the duo had "an intense and active" sex life, the Sun reported.
He wrote in the book: "He and Lisa appear to have had an intense and active sex life. She told a friend that he was 'hot stuff in bed' and 'amazing'. Nevertheless, some of his habits were a little odd."
The author said that throughout their marriage, Presley never saw him without his makeup and that they would wake up in the morning with their bed smeared in it. When Presley would wake Jackson up with a cuddle and a kiss, he would become alarmed. Taraborrelli wrote: "He would shriek 'No, don't look!' and scamper to the bathroom."
Presley's friend told him: "The first time, [Lisa Marie] went to turn on the lights afterward, and [Jackson] leaped out of bed and ran into the bathroom so she wouldn't see his body. He emerged 20 minutes later, in full make-up and wearing a silk robe. Then they went at it again. He liked her to wear jewelry in bed. They were into role-playing games, although Lisa would never say who was playing what kind of role."
Their marriage reportedly fell apart because Lisa Marie did not become pregnant immediately. Jackson was obsessed with having children "so badly".
One of Lisa's friends reportedly said: "The great sex continued but when they weren't in bed making love, they were fighting. Lisa started to wonder if she'd made a mistake in choosing him as a life partner."
In a National Enquirer article in 1995, 51-year-old Lisa Marie then allegedly said that she and Jackson first slept together during a weekend at President Donald Trump's mansion in Florida. She also spoke of how the pop superstar preferred to have sex standing up. She allegedly said: "It was absolutely wild. He was slow getting started, then he just wanted more and more."
The Mirror reported that Lisa Marie added once that Jackson loved to sing and shriek as they were getting intimate and this would leave her giggling. The couple first met in 1975 when 7-year-old Lisa Marie attended one of Michael's concerts in Las Vegas. Their "adult friendship" began 17 years after that.
On May 26, 1994, the couple sent shockwaves throughout the world when they secretly tied the knot in a small and private ceremony in the Dominican Republic.
Lisa Marie opened up about her marriage to Jackson in 2010 and said that things had been "normal" before it all went south. Even though speculation was rife with reports saying she was with Jackson only to further her own career, she called it out as "absolute B.S."
Lisa Marie said that she very much preferred the role of nurturer and caretaker to the troubled icon. She explained: "I’ve never been comfortable being front and center, honestly. Don’t like attention on me. Loved being next to him and taking care of him. I was on such a high doing that ... that it was a very profound time in my life."
She supported Jackson through the initial child abuse claims that emerged in 1993 but filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences in January 1996. Jackson was Lisa Marie's second husband and she went on to marry Nicholas Cage and then Michael Lockwood after her split with Jackson.
