Priscilla Presley was born in Brooklyn, New York, on May 24, 1945. Her full name is Priscilla Ann Wagner. Her mother, Ann, had Priscilla when she was 19, and her father, James, a Navy pilot, died in a plane crash when she was only six months old. In 1948, Ann married Paul Beaulieu, an Air Force officer, and Priscilla started using his last name instead of Wagner. Because Beaulieu was in the Air Force, the family moved every few years. Presley grew up in Connecticut, New Mexico, Maine, and Texas. In 1956, Paul was sent to Germany. There, Priscilla met Elvis Presley, who was in the Army then.
Relationship With Elvis Presley
Elvis met Priscilla at a party at his home in Bad Nauheim in September 1959. Her parents didn’t like the idea of Elvis, who was 24, dating Priscilla, who was only 14. But when Presley showed up at their house in full uniform, he won them over. Elvis left West Germany in March 1960, but he kept in touch with Priscilla by phone until she could visit him in Los Angeles in 1962. Priscilla moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in March 1963. She agreed to finish high school at Immaculate Conception High School and live with Elvis’ father and stepmother a few blocks from Graceland. Elvis told Priscilla to stay in Memphis while he was working in Hollywood. The press said he was having an affair with his “Viva Las Vegas” co-star Ann-Margaret, but when Priscilla asked him about it, he said it was just a rumour to get people to see the movie. During the time he was with Priscilla, Elvis had affairs with several of his co-stars.
On May 1, 1967, in Las Vegas, Priscilla and Elvis had an 8-minute wedding. On February 1, 1968, their daughter Lisa Marie was born. In 1968, Priscilla took private dance lessons and had an affair with her teacher. She says this made her realize that she wasn’t getting enough out of her marriage. Elvis told her to try karate, so she did, and she had an affair with her teacher, Mike Stone. Later, Priscilla said that her marriage had made her feel both physically and emotionally empty. In February 1972, Elvis and Stone Presley broke up. Elvis had said before that he wanted Stone to die, but he didn’t do anything when his bodyguard brought up the idea of a contract killing. The couple got a divorce on October 9, 1973, and they agreed to share custody of their daughter, Lisa Marie. Priscilla also got a $725,000 cash payment, child support, spousal support, 50% of the money from their Beverly Hills home, sale and 5% of the royalties from Elvis’ publishing companies.
In 1973, Priscilla and her friend and stylist Olivia Bis opened the Bis & Beau clothing store in Los Angeles. Cher, Barbra Streisand, and Natalie Wood were all big fans of the store, which closed in 1976. When Elvis died in 1977, Priscilla was Lisa Marie’s executor. When she found out how much of her daughter’s inheritance would go to Graceland (for upkeep, taxes, and other costs), she worked with CEO Jack Soden to make Graceland a popular tourist spot. Graceland opened on June 7, 1982, and Elvis fans loved it. Since 2006, the museum has been a National Historic Landmark, and more than 650,000 people visit each year. Elvis Presley Enterprises was run by Priscilla, who was president and chairwoman. By the time Lisa Marie Presley was old enough to take over the estate in 1993, it was worth more than $100 million.
Priscilla also has a line of fragrances and linens, and she has produced several movies and TV shows, such as “Elvis and Me” (1988), “Breakfast with Einstein” (1998), “Finding Graceland” (1998), and the upcoming “Agent King” adult animated series on Netflix. She joined the board of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 2000, and was a regular on “Dallas” from 1983 to 1988. She also played Jane Spencer, Lt. Frank Drebin’s love interest, in all three “Naked Gun” movies. Priscilla was also offered the lead role on “Charlie’s Angels,” but she turned it down.
After her divorce, Priscilla moved in with Mike Stone, and they were together until 1975. From 1978 to 1985, she dated male model Michael Edwards. They broke up when Edwards started acting inappropriately toward Lisa Marie, who was a teenager at the time. Then, Presley began dating screenwriter and computer programmer Marco Garibaldi. They were together for 22 years, and their son Navarone was born n March 1, 1987. Priscilla and Marco broke up in 2006. From 2006 to 2009, she dated TV executive Nigel Lythgoe. A lawyer named Robert Kardashian and a photographer named Terry O’Neill have also been linked to Presley.
Since 2003, Presley has been the Ambassador of the Dream Foundation. This group makes wishes come true for adults who are dying. She is a big animal lover and has spoken out against the Tennessee Ag-Gag Bill. In 2013, she wrote to Governor Bill Haslam about it.
