Scrawled to wife Lisa: "I truly need this rest."A dramatic letter penned by the late Michael Jackson in the 1990s to his then-wife Lisa Marie Presley was pulled from an upcoming auction.

"I'm assuming it's a personal nature, and we wanted to honor the request and continue our good relationship with Ms. Presley" said Darren Julien, the head of Julien's Auctions.

TMZ reports the letter was written sometime between 1993 and 1996. In June 2009, Michael Jackson overdosed on Propofol after years of insomnia. His personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and sentenced to the maximum of four years in prison.

The latest Michael Jackson auction will take place on Dec. 2, 2012 in Beverly Hills, California by Julien's Auctions under their tagline "Icons and Idols."
