Priscilla Presley On Being Intimate With The Legendary Rockstar Elvis Presley

Pricilla Presley was only 14 when she met the love of his life Elvis Presley, who later went on to become her husband too. According to a video obtained by the famous media outlet TMZ, the American businesswoman spoke about the intimate details of her relationship with the late Suspicious Minds singer and the uphill task of convincing her parents to their marriage. She said-

“It was very difficult for my parents to understand that Elvis would be so interested in me and why. And I really do think because I was more of a listener. Elvis would pour his heart out to me in every way in Germany: his fears, his hopes, the loss of his mother — which he never, ever got over. “

The ex-couple got married in 1967, had a baby girl named Lisa Marie Presley and legally separated in 1973. But they supported each other even after their much-hyped divorce.

While talking about the relationship dynamics between her and her late ex-husband, the actor said-

“I didn’t know why he put so much trust in me, but he did. And I never, ever, ever told anyone that I was seeing him, and that was another issue that he loved, is the fact that I never gave him up in any way.
