The marriage of Lisa Marie Presley and Jackson thrilled the music industry, as they finally tied the knot on May 26, 1994. After the marriage, Jackson’s sexual preferences were often brought up in interviews, including one which left the both of them giggling at the questions. Years later, Jackson’s own employee claimed the pair “never” spent the night together, despite announcing their sexual exploits on TV interviews.
During an appearance on ABC’s Primetime Live, Jackson and Lisa Marie’s intimate relationship was brought up, to which Lisa Marie questioned: “Do we have sex?!”
They both excitedly yelled: “Yes!” while tittering at the notion.
A little angry about the intrusion, Jackson added: “Like we’re faking this?”
Lisa Marie agreed: “How can you fake this 24 hours a day – sleeping with somebody, waking up with somebody? I’m not going to marry somebody for any reason other than the fact that I fall in love with them.”

Jackson’s former employee, Sandy Domz, who had worked at Neverland Ranch, told a CBS documentary Lisa Marie and Jackson “didn’t seem to be in a natural relationship or a friendship”.
She went on: “Michael would get a hold of some underwear and throw them on the floor. They were also sprayed with perfume and it was to make it look like Lisa Marie had been in the bedroom.
“But to my knowledge, she was never in there. She was either in the Rose Room or had slept on the guest beds.”
Jackson’s ex-maid, Adrian McManus, corroborated this story by adding that Jackson left her some fake “evidence” of the married couple’s sexual encounters.
One of Jackson’s childhood friends, J Randy Taraborrelli, wrote a book about the star, titled Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness, where he added to the stories of the pop star’s sex life.
Within the book the author noted the pair had an “odd” sex life but an “intense and active” one.
After speaking to Lisa Marie’s friends, Taraborrelli wrote: “The first time [Lisa Marie] went to turn on the lights afterwards, and [Jackson] leapt 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.”
Just two years after their marriage began, Jackson and Lisa Marie filed for divorce.
After the split, Lisa Marie insisted her ex-husband was “not a bad person”.
Despite this, she explained she was told by Jackson that if she wouldn’t “give him children” then “Debbie said she’ll do it”.
Just over a year later, Debbie Rowe married Jackson, and the pair had two children together – Prince Jackson, and Paris Jackson.
