The statement continued, “Michael cherished the special bond they enjoyed and was comforted by Lisa Marie’s generous love, concern and care during their times together. Our hearts are with Lisa Marie’s children, Riley, Harper and Finley, and her mother, Priscilla, in this difficult time.”
Presley married Jackson in 1994, just 20 days after her divorce from first husband Danny Keogh was finalized. She filed for divorce in 1996.
Jackson died of an accidental overdose in 2009.
