The death of Lisa Marie Presley was announced on January 12, 2023. She went into cardiac arrest and was rushed to the hospital for resuscitation. She was 54 years old. The star, who was the only child of Elvis Presley, had been married twice. Her first marriage was to Michael Jackson, but they weren’t together for long. Michael was already acting when Lisa Marie was born, meaning there was a significant age difference between them. However, the couple first met when Elvis brought his daughter to meet the Jackson 5, and lead singer MJ became the object of Lisa Marie’s affections far more than the other members of the group.
What was the age difference between Lisa Marie and Michael Jackson?
Michael was just 16 when the couple met, while Lisa Marie was just six, according to Randy J Taraborelli’s “Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness.”
This means their age difference is 10 years, which isn’t particularly big given some celebrity marriages.
This friendship reportedly lasted a long time and they kept in touch, though their friendship intensified as adults beginning in 1992, according to Lisa Marie’s friend John Coale.

The couple did several interviews together, even inviting the press to Neverland for an event, but their union wasn’t going to last very long. The couple finally came close to divorce in late 1995, according to Michael’s former assistant Scott Schaffer, who said it came to a head after Michael collapsed on set during an HBO special filming in New York in 1995. .
Speaking to The Sun, Scott said: “She rushed to see him in hospital and he told her she could only see him for a certain period of time. He gave her an hour or even less so she could visit him and then she had to leave, so she essentially put a time limit on him. At that point, she had had enough and that was literally when she called her lawyer to start the divorce proceedings.
She filed for divorce in January 1996, which was granted shortly thereafter.
