Jackson's spirit 'asked for forgiveness'

Michael Jackson's spirit asked his ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley for forgiveness during a seance.

Michael died aged 50 last June, after taking a cocktail of drugs including powerful anaesthetic Propofol. His personal physician Dr Conrad Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter on Monday, but has pleaded not guilty.

The pop icon's former make-up artist Karan Faye has revealed she and Lisa Marie visited a psychic last week, and were put in touch with Michael.

"He seemed to be on a mission to reach out to people in his life and be forgiven. Michael spent his time explaining his faults and wanting us to forgive him. He seemed unsettled," she told British newspaper The Sun.

"The psychic turned to me and said, 'Michael is telling me, 'You took such good care of me and I am so sorry I hurt you so much'.' He said he should have listened to me more. It hit me straight in the heart."

Karen claims the medium did not know she used to work with Michael. She is convinced Michael spoke to them, claiming things were said which only the 'King of Pop' could have known.

"There were definite, deep insights that would have been difficult to make up. It was detailed about the inner dynamics of his family and his levels of pain and emotional inability," she explained.

Michael did not talk about the charges against Murray, apparently saying they were not for him to comment on.

Michael and Lisa Marie married in 1994, but they parted ways after 18 months. Following his death, she wrote an entry on her blog saying how sad she was to hear of his passing.

"He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together. I desperately hope that he can be relieved from his pain, pressure and turmoil now," she wrote.
