LONDON: Late singer Michael Jackson’s middle name was Turd, reveals an old letter by the “King of Pop” to his former wife Lisa Marie Presley.

The letter was written and signed by the singer for Presley, with whom he was married between 1994 to 1996. The meaning of Turd is a slang term for faeces, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The handwritten letter also has details about his need for sleep.

“I truly need this rest. I haven’t slept literally in four days and I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first. Im’ crazy for you,” the letter reads, and signs off with “Love, Turd”.

The letter was a part of an auction, but has been removed from the Music Icons sale following a request from Presley.
