A number of noteworthy movies premiered at the most recent Cannes Film Festival, including Elvis, a biography of the undisputed King of Rock and Roll. Austin Butler plays Elvis Presley in the movie, which charts his rise to stardom from his lowly beginnings through his turbulent relationship with Colonel Tom Parker, his manager.
But for Elvis’ narrative to be complete, his family life must also be shown. Elvis Presley’s ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, also appears in the movie.
Priscilla met the legendary star, 10 years older than her, in 1959 when she was 14. According to a recent interview, her marriage to him one year later, in 1967, when she was 21 years old, was the turning point in her life. What else has PP been doing except terminating her highly publicized six-year marriage to The King?
Is Priscilla Presley still alive?
Priscilla Presley, whose birth name was Priscilla Ann Wagner, was said to have died quietly in her home on May 13th, 2022 (TBV), with her devoted daughter by her side. Her death was attributed to a vehicle accident. She was 76 years old when she passed away.
The news of Priscilla Presley’s passing earlier this week grieved fans worldwide. The May 2022 rumor, however, has subsequently been revealed to be a complete fabrication, making it the most recent in a long line of fake celebrity demise.
According to tabloids, Priscilla’s health has allegedly been declining in recent years. The former Dallas star, nevertheless, is adamant that the rumors are untrue.
A report from 2020 stated that she was “fading quickly.” Priscilla responded to the charge on Twitter. I am in excellent health, am not perishing, and I keep my memory, as I already stated, she continued. “Don’t dismiss me just yet… I have far too much to do in this life. I don’t understand where these odd articles are coming from.
Presley debunked rumors that she was in a bad situation and intended to be buried close to her ex-husband on Twitter in March. “This is the Enquirer folks… please don’t believe everything you read,” she tweeted at the time. “I’m in excellent health; don’t purchase the casket just yet. Plan my funeral right away; I’m in excellent health. They never intended to rest alongside Elvis. What will they think of next?
Just how many times has she tied the knot?
Elvis Presley first met the woman who would later become his wife, Priscilla Presley, on September 13, 1959, during a party that he was giving at his house in Bad Nauheim, Germany, while he was stationed with the United States Army. Elvis was stationed in Germany at the time.
Priscilla’s parents were perturbed by the fact that she arrived home late that evening, and they pleaded with her to sever all links with Elvis permanently and end any future associations she might have with him.
To his credit, he was able to persuade them to grant him permission to talk to her. They spent a lot of time together until March of 1960, when he left West Germany to pursue other opportunities. In the summer of 1962, Priscilla relocated to Memphis, marking one year from when she had last seen Elvis.
The joyous couple chose the Aladdin Hotel in Sin City as the setting for their wedding on May 1st, 1967. Tom Parker, who managed Elvis Presley, orchestrated the wedding to garner media attention but invited very few guests. Despite the fact that she and Elvis divorced in 1973, she is still very involved in his legacy and has a beautiful relationship with the King of Rock and Roll.
