The battle against addictions

At that time, the singer was grateful “to be alive today” and she was honest when acknowledging that she had started taking opioids after the birth of her twins Vivienne and Finley in 2008.

The ghost of addictions haunted her long before, since she perceived the devastating effects of drugs on both her late father and her ex-partner, michael jacksonwho dealt until the last moment with the complications derived from the consumption of substances.

Regarding the tragic outcome of Elvis, Lisa Marie recorded having cried while exclaiming: “My dad is dead.” She was just nine years old.
