Jackson acknowledged the prostitute as she left, stating that he would perhaps call her one day, though he never did. Their friendship was established by the time O'Neal was 12 and Jackson was 17, and featured in gossip columns for several years after. According to Jackson, the incident happened at her home, where she attempted to unbutton his shirt and talked explicitly about sex.
O'Neal's behavior apparently proved too much for Jackson, who became scared and covered his face, before she walked away. When confronted with the allegation, O'Neal claimed to have been "just as shocked as everyone else". She stated that while having respect for Jackson as an artist and a person, he had "a very vivid imagination". The actress described his statements as "inaccurate"; "at 12 years old, there was no way she was capable of being as mature or as sophisticated as he claimed".
In the book, she claimed it was Jackson who attempted to make out with her.
The actress wrote, "I was just 12 and not at all ready for a real-life encounter[ He jumped up nervously and said, 'Uh And that one time they had a "jam session" at her house where he played the drums and her brother played guitar.

He described holding hands with her: It was the most magical thing. It was better than kissing her, it was better than anything. I remember we went to this club, and I don't go to clubs, which was called the Roxy.
And I was watching the band, I was sitting there, and underneath the table, she was holding my hand, and I was, like melting. She held your hand and you felt love? But that means nothing to kids today. She grew up too fast. She wasn't into innocence, and I love that. And I was naive. She wanted to do everything and I didn't want to have sex at all.

He recalled his happiness when they first met in He was at the 53rd Academy Awards with Diana Rossand Shields walked up and introduced herself; then at the after-party she asked him to dance with her.
They exchanged numbers, and he "was up all night, singing, spinning around my room, just so happy. The suggestions were met with disapproval from Shields, who felt such a move would have "divided [her] life too much".
Shields claimed that in the singer's last years "it was harder to get the right number to get through to him". Michael always knew he could count on me to support him or be his date and that we would have fun no matter where we were.

The young girl was particularly fascinated by lead singer Michael Jackson and his talent at dancing. Knowing that Presley had been looking for help within the music industry, Strong had her play tapes for Jackson, who was impressed with Presley's voice.
The pair talked for the remainder of the night, until it was time for Jackson to leave. At this point, according to Strong, the entertainer gave Presley, who was still married at the time, a penetrating look and said in a conspiratorial voice, "You and me, we could get into a lot of trouble.
Think about that, girl. The two came to realize they had much in common: Presley was raised in Gracelandwhile Jackson lived at Neverland. Inhe became the subject of child sexual abuse accusations and Presley, along with a few others, was there for emotional support.
Michael would call Presley from overseas as he embarked upon the second leg of the Dangerous World Tour and the child abuse investigation intensified. During such telephone conversations, Presley attempted to reverse Jackson's sadness with humor and advice. Presley later recalled that she believed in the musician's innocence and that she could "save him". He subsequently did both.
After a pause, Jackson exclaimed that he had to use the bathroom. Having apparently relieved himself, the singer explained to his new fiancee that his love for her was genuine and she had to believe him. The union was conducted in Spanish and translated for Presley and Jackson by an attorney. Eva Darling, Presley's friend, served as a witness along with Thomas Keough, her ex-husband's brother.

The male pop singer reasoned that the liplock, which was dubbed "The Kiss of the Century", would be talked about for decades, with people playing the clip over and over.
Newspaper reports had been suggesting that if Elvis were alive, he would not approve of his daughter's marriage. Presley felt the idea was tasteless and, upon Jackson's continuing to push the idea, warned, "If you stay on this particular road, they're gonna need a medium to contact you in the Great Beyond, because I'm about to put you there, right now. Presley's friend Monica Pastelle revealed that it was at this point that Presley began to wonder whether she had made a mistake in choosing Jackson as a long-term partner.
Though she never believed he was a pedophile —"I wouldn't have let him near my kids if I thought that"—she felt her husband was only opening himself up to more rumor and innuendo following the allegations.

Upon being called selfish, Jackson pointed to his humanitarian endeavors. Presley countered that his philanthropy was irrelevant, that the issue was about them. Imagining the future and what would happen if the marriage ended, Presley saw a "custody battle nightmare".

He explained, "My friend Debbie [Rowe] said she will get pregnant and have my baby. If you won't do it, then she will. Presley arrived to meet her ill husband, and yet another heated debate ensued.

At the time, Jackson was afraid there would never be another who made him feel the way his ex-wife had. He eventually realized he had to move on; he had a world tour coming up and music to work on. Jackson also knew that Presley would never make him a father, which he longed to be. According to Presley, the last "coherently good conversation" she had with Jackson was in Rowe treated Jackson's vitiligowhich he had been diagnosed with in and which would affect his physical appearance for the remainder of his life.
The pair became good friends; the pop star frequently sent autographed merchandise to the woman, who hung it on the walls of her office. According to her friend Tanya Boyd, Rowe would obsess over Jackson.

Shortly after Presley and Jackson's separation, Rowe became pregnant but suffered a miscarriage in March I had the tape of it, but I lost it somewhere.
He never talked to me after that. I was a child doing what I was told. But the eyes are the giveaway — beneath the elaborate disguise is a year-old Michael Jackson, hoping to enjoy a concert with his first girlfriend in blissful anonymity. And while the singer came to be mocked for the crazy disguises he adopted, this one was clearly a work of genius. When the snap resurfaced recently, a now year-old Tatum told pals: We had an amazing night.

The next day they partied at the Playboy mansion and shared a hot tub — in swimming costumes. Their relationship grew as they spent hours on the phone. He sat on the bed and we kissed very briefly, but it was all very awkward. For all my passionate crushes on people like Dustin Hoffman, I was just 12 and not at all ready for a real-life encounter.
And I was very naiive. There was fireworks going on. It was all I needed But that means nothing to kids today. She grew up too fast. All the sexual stuff. She slowly walked over and she touched the button of my shirt to open it. And she just walked away. She knew I was too shy for it. I have a great deal of respect for Michael Jackson as an artist and as a person.
However, he has a very vivid imagination. His comments about our friendship were inaccurate. Michael did come over to my house when my father was home, but at 12 years old, there was no way I was capable of being as mature or as sophisticated as he claimed I was. He gave me his number, and we started talking everyday—long drawn-out conversations that sometimes got so boring I would hand over the receiver to my friend Esme Gray.
Michael would just keep on, thinking he was talking to me. His usual subject was sex. He sat on thebed, and we kissed very briefly, but it was terribly awkward. I absolutely adored Michael—as a friend—and I admire him to this day. I believe that he fell in love with me.
Unfortunately, my friendship with Michael came to an abrupt ending. I was told, in exactly these words: That upset me tremendously. So, without telling Michael the reason, I turned him down. Michael dressed in full costume for the event—coming in blackface, with a pasted-on beard—the whole nine yards. But things were never the same between us. Tatum was his first love. Then there was Brook Shields, but she was too young then, and Michael always was a gentleman.
He nevertheless courted her and has bought her a ring with a big diamond. He frequently told his mother about how much Brook means to him.
Tatum, Brooke and Michael had a lot in common. All three were child stars. There are no words that can express the sadness I feel in my heart.
