Priscilla Presley, the ex-wife of the late popular singer Elvis Presley, recently talked about her relationship with him, which blossomed when she was just a teenager. She believes that the biggest reason that Elvis initially liked her was her great listening abilities and how he could blindly trust her. She stated about how they first met at a party in Germany when she was only 14, and he was 24 and was serving in the military at that time. Initially, their parents did not support or agree to their relationship because he was 10 years older than her. She said that Elvis had just lost his mother at that time and was very lonely. He needed someone to talk to, and he trusted her with everything that he shared.
The movie Priscilla, released on October 27, is directed by Sofia Coppola, and the storyline is adapted from the book Priscilla wrote in 1985, titled “Elvis and Me.” Priscilla always gets nervous when someone asks about her relationship with Elvis, and when asked about a few scenes from the movie that are based on the reality of their relationship, about little things like Elvis picking up the outfits and hairstyles for her, she replied that time was different back then and she liked that he cared enough to tell her what he liked and what he did not. She also said that she did not marry anyone else because no one ever came close to making her feel the way Elvis did.
When asked to share something about Elvis that is difficult to believe for his fans, she shared about his nervous nature and how he was constantly asking if he performed well or not to reassure himself, which might be hard for people to believe. She also said that Christmas was very special to Elvis, but he was never good at decorating a tree. In 1982, Graceland was made open for fans to visit. Priscilla said she still feels a mix of two emotions—happiness and sadness—every time she visits Graceland.
Priscilla has also made sure to keep the property in the family and has voluntarily participated in all the court activities that took place after the death of their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. According to a report by Fox News, the businesswoman and actress said that no lawsuit was ever filed against their granddaughter Riley Keough, and they have resolved all the previous issues together within the family.
