Neverland Meets Graceland - Secret Weddings, Rollercoaster Romances, Lisa Marie Presley, Michael Jackson - 1994-08-15
Meet Michael Jackson, family man.
It's hard to imagine how our unstable world, which recently witnessed the evisceration of the singer's career by accusations of child molestation, is going to accommodate the notion. But we probably have no choice. On Aug. 1, Lisa Marie, 26, Elvis Presley's only child, issued a statement confirming the whispers that had been swirling for weeks: She had indeed wed the 35-year-old pop genius. "My married name is Mrs. Lisa Marie Presley-Jackson," said the announcement, issued three weeks after a Dominican Republic judge produced a marriage license for all to see, dated May 26 and bearing the couple's signatures. "My marriage to Michael Jackson took place in a private ceremony outside the United States weeks ago," Presley-Jackson's statement continued. "I am very much in love with Michael, I dedicate my life to being his wife. I understand and support him. We both look forward to raising a family."
