Lisa Marie alluded that busy schedules and other issues put a damper on their union, telling Rolling Stone in 2003 that she just "had enough."

Ortega said that was her way of saving face, claiming Scientology had been more involved in their breakup than anybody knew.

"I was in love with Michael. I wanted to help him," she told Ortega years before her passing. "There was always someone here. Even when we did that ABC prime time interview, there was always a Scientology handler right there."

"DM [David Miscavige] facilitated my divorce with MJ," she allegedly said, claiming there was pressure from Miscavige and Scientologist attorney, John P. Coale, to file for divorce.

"I was calling Dave, asking, what do I do? He was a huge MJ fan. He was all over that," she continued, according to Ortega, who said she was told to race to the court before MJ did, a choice she would later come to regret.

Lisa Marie added, "I was in love with Michael, believe it or not. I didn't want to leave him. He was in trouble and I wanted to help him. And they made sure that I left him."

"First of all, I never told her to love or unlove Mr. Jackson. This is 30 years ago," Coale told Ortega in response last week, claiming it was "absurd" to tell Lisa Marie to file first considering "there was no contest." has reached out to the Church of Scientology for comment.
