NEW YORK – Lisa Marie Presley (search) aired her "Dirty Laundry" on "Oprah."
In the first of a two-part interview on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to promote her new album, Presley spoke Monday about her brief marriage to Michael Jackson (search), who is on trial in Santa Maria, Calif., on child molestation charges.
She told Winfrey that her marriage to Jackson, which lasted from 1994 to 1996, was real.
"Do you think that he loved you as much as he could?" the talk-show host asked.
"Yes, as much as he was capable of loving somebody," Presley replied. (They famously opened the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards by exchanging a long kiss.)
In a "PrimeTime Live" interview with the couple in 1995, Presley told ABC's Diane Sawyer that anyone who questioned their relationship could "Eat it!"
When Winfrey (search) asked if she felt that Jackson had used her, Presley replied, "All signs point to 'yes' on that. I can't answer for him."
Presley, the daughter of Elvis, claimed she was uncomfortable talking about Jackson, at one point exclaiming: "This seat is hot!"
The 37-year-old singer made similar comments about her former husband while promoting her 2003 debut album, describing the relationship to The Associated Press as more "toxic" than her other relationships.
Then, she told the AP: "I don't want to bash him. I don't hate him, I don't have any of that going on."
