Lisa Marie isn’t good at marriage

Few women have a marriage track record like Lisa Marie Presley. In 2016, news broke that Lisa Marie was ending her union with Michael Lockwood, whom she had been married to since 2006. Unfortunately, it was her fourth failed marriage. According to Us Weekly, she was married to Danny Keough from 1988 to 1994. Her second marriage was to the King of Pop Michael Jackson and that lasted from 1994 to 1996. Lisa Marie endured another short-lived marriage to Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.

Becoming blunt about her numerous trips down the aisle, Presley told Marie Claire in 2007 some of her decisions weren’t the best. “I had been really sheltered. I got married the first time very, very young,” she told the magazine. “And the marriage I was in, there was so much resentment about who I was, because I had more than he did, and it became a power struggle. It is hard for a man to be with a woman who is stronger, wealthier. So in my mind I’m thinking, I know, I’ll get with someone more compatible.” She called her second marriage to Jackson the “biggest mistake of [her] life.” She adds, “I wasn’t thinking what everyone else was thinking, which was that I must have been out of my f**king mind.”

And as for her rocky marriage to Cage? “Marrying him was a wild flurry, a crazy idea and being young, and ‘Ahhh!'” she quipped.
