If there was ever a man who needed no introduction, it’s Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll. But while you may be an Elvis expert, far less is known about the ex-wife and daughter he left behind, and the family they’ve raised since. The Presleys have lived fascinating lives, from ex-wife Priscilla and granddaughter Riley’s involvement with the Church of Scientology to Lisa Marie Presley’s four marriages (two to major celebs!). We’re looking inside the family of Priscilla, from her exes to her kids (and grandkids!)
While Priscilla is known as a charitable figure and actor now, she was a normal teenage girl when she met Elvis. The pair met when she was only 14 and he was 24, forming a romantic bond. It’s, erm, hard to hear about their relationship once you learn more details (like how he called her “Little One.”)
Despite this, the former Scientologist has blossomed into a successful, powerful woman in the industry who adores her ever-growing family. She’s made sure her talented family is more than a rock and roll legacy. They’re a family like any other, and a beautiful, blended, unique one at that.
Here’s a look inside Priscilla’s family.
