Mansion Global: Priscilla Presley Sells Off Mansion She Bought to Be Near Ex Elvis Presley
"Naked Gun" star Priscilla Presley has sold her luxurious Beverly Hills mansion for $13 million after owning the property for over a decade.
Priscilla Presley is best known as the ex-wife of the legendary singer Elvis Presley and her appearance in the "Naked Gun" franchise. The 75-year-old recently sold her longtime home despite its sentimental value.
According to reports, the Beverly Hills mansion was sold for $13 million, nearly $2 million less than Presley's initial price, which was $15.9 million before it was reduced to $14.5 million in October.
The vine-rich property listed by Hilton & Hyland was built in 1951 and renovated in 1994. It has belonged to the actress for over 45 years, and the luxurious home features "Spanish-style architecture," with vaulted ceilings and paneled walls.
Priscilla told sources Elvis's infidelity caused their problems, and the 75-year-old filed for divorce in 1972.
The mansion provides privacy with the surrounding trees, and it consists of seven bedrooms, a separate guest wing, a library, a whiskey room, a pool, a tennis court, and more.
According to the buyer's representative, Peter Zimble, the unnamed buyers were drawn to the property because it "exudes romance." Zimble put it in a more fascinating way when he said:
"When you stand on the terrace you feel like you're at a remote European estate."
The actress may have sold her longtime home, but she continues to honor her ex-husband's memory and has never shied away from discussing their relationship. The pair met in Germany at a party on a military base in 1959.
Priscilla's parents were initially against their relationship, but in 1962, they allowed their daughter to move in with Elvis at Graceland in Tennessee. They got married five years later and welcomed their daughter, Lisa, in 1968.
However, after the birth of their daughter, the couple's relationship changed. Priscilla told sources Elvis's infidelity caused their problems, and the 75-year-old filed for divorce in 1972.
Earlier in July, the "Elvis And Me" star mourned the death of her grandson Benjamin Keough, who took his life on July 12. Ten days after his death, the actress expressed her grief on Facebook with a heartfelt post.
The mother-of-two stated that the tragedy left her family "devastated," especially her daughter, Lisa, and Ben's father, Danny. Her other grandchildren — Riley, Harper, and Finley, also struggled with the loss.
