From the day they said "I do" in 1994, Lisa Marie says Michael wanted her to have a baby.

"I did want to, but I just wanted to make sure," she says. "I was looking into the future and thinking, 'I don't ever want to get into a custody battle with him.'" Over time, she says her hesitation became a source of contention. Then, two months after their divorce was final, it was announced in October 1996 that Debbie Rowe was pregnant with Michael's child—an act Lisa Marie calls "retaliatory."

Watch Lisa Marie talks about the pressure to have Michael's children.   

"She was there the whole time telling him that she would [have his child]," Lisa Marie says. "He would tell me, 'Debbie said she'll do it.' That's how he knew to handle it, 'If you're not going to do it, this person will.'"

"That's what you mean by 'disposable,'" Oprah says.

"Yes," Lisa Marie says. "That's exactly what I mean."
