Elvis Presley, known as the “King of Rock and Roll,” was a well-known personality in the entertainment world. His charisma, charm, and singing captivated audiences all over the world. He was a singer, dancer, actor, and sergeant all rolled into one.
Guinness World Records recognizes the performer as the best-selling solo music artist, having sold over 500 million records worldwide. As a result, even decades after his death, he continues to create news.
The mystery and inaccessibility of the star’s life at the time made them even more appealing. As a result, once new information is given, followers are quick to seize it.
Elvis and Me: The True Story of the Love Between Priscilla Presley and the King of Rock N’ Roll, written by his wife Priscilla Presley in 1986, chronicled the couple’s relationship. Several facts and disclosures regarding their marriage have now come to light, shocking the public. This essay goes into what caused their marriage to fail in the first place.
Even though the marriage only lasted six years, it is still a topic of conversation in today’s globe. In an interview with the Sunday News in 2018, Priscilla Presley acknowledged that Elvis Presley cheated on her several times, which was one of the causes of their divorce. She stated,
“He wasn’t devoted. I tried to turn away but didn’t want to share him… I’m unsure whether he was ever cut to marry and have a family, as much as he wanted to. Because I doubt he could ever be true to just one woman.”
Priscilla Presley did not wish to tarnish Elvis Presley’s legacy by revealing personal information about their existence. She has repeatedly stated how much she adored the star. People couldn’t help but fall in love with him because of his aura and charm. As a result, the two stayed close even after their divorce.
“We never lost our friendship or concern for one another,”
Although she initially found all the attention difficult, she quickly adapted and managed herself in those situations.
“The beginning [of the marriage] was difficult, but I knew what I was getting myself into because I saw it at a young age,” she says.
She said in 2016 that she adored being Elvis Presley’s “wife.” She stated she enjoyed tending to him.
“I was always ready to greet and pamper him,” she explained. “I had a great time caring for Elvis. I enjoyed looking after him. I had a lot of fun feeding him. We would baby talk because it is necessary to have your language when there are so many people around. It had been a good life. It was unique, but it was ours.”
Priscilla Presley is still honoring Elvis Presley’s legacy.
The two met when Priscilla Presley was 14 and Elvis Presley was 24. In Germany, it may seem gross now, but back in the day did not raise enough eyebrows. Elvis Presley observed Priscilla Presley’s similarity to his late mother and thought she was the one.
He hoped to start a family with her. They met each other’s parents after their fourth date. And when asked what he saw in her by Priscilla Presley’s father, Elvis Presley replied,
“Well, sir, I happen to like her a lot. She’s much more mature than her age, and I enjoy her company.”
The two eventually married on May 1, 1967, in Las Vegas. Afterward, they welcomed their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on February 1, 1968. Later on October 9, 1973, the couple finalized their divorce after living in separation for a few months.
The short-lived whirlwind romance between the two continues to live in people’s minds. Fans will now get to know more about the topic of the upcoming film adaptation of “Elvis and Me” called Priscilla.
