As Elvis’ only child, Lisa Marie Presley has always been of interest to the King’s fans. But after going through a difficult period, she retreated from the spotlight. Now, though, the 50-year-old has spoken out for the first time in years – and what she had to say came as a big surprise.
Lisa Marie was born in February 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee, exactly nine months after her parents, Elvis and Priscilla Presley, were married. Yet although Elvis and Priscilla had been together for almost a decade before their wedding, their relationship fell apart just a few short years later.
They had both been unfaithful, you see, and they eventually separated in 1972 when Elvis learned of Priscilla’s affair with her karate teacher. And following the divorce, their daughter lived with her mom. And we all know what happened next: in 1977 the iconic singer passed away unexpectedly.
