While many fans know Elvis Presley as "The King of Rock and Roll," very few know his ex-wife, Priscilla Presley. Here is a detailed look into her love life after their divorce as she turns 77 on May 24, 2022.


Priscilla Presley is an actress and businesswoman born on May 24, 1945, to James Wagner, a U.S. Navy pilot killed in a plane crash when she was a few months old.

In 1959, while stationed in Germany with her stepfather, an Air Force officer, she met Elvis Presley, who was serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Despite Priscilla being 14, they began dating, and she eventually followed him to the United States.

They were together for eight years before getting married in Las Vegas on May 1, 1967, and had their daughter, Lisa Marie, on February 1, 1968. Unfortunately, they divorced in 1973 but remained friends and raised their daughter together until he died in 1977.

During their marriage, Priscilla began studying acting, and after a few TV appearances, she joined the cast of "Dallas" and won a Soap Opera Digest Award for her role in 1984.


In 1985, she became an author when she published her bestselling memoir "Elvis and Me" and produced a TV movie based on the book three years later.

In the late 1990s, Priscilla launched a fragrance brand and clothing and skin-care goods. In 2002, she wanted to co-produce a musical theater play based on her romance with Elvis. In 2008, she became a contestant on Season 6 of "Dancing with the Stars."



Immediately after their divorce, Priscilla lived with Mike Stone, her karate teacher with whom she had an affair while still married to Elvis. They were together until 1975.

"It took me a few days to overcome the emotions."

After their split, she dated photographer Terry O'Neill and lawyer Robert Kardashian before dating hairdresser Elie Ezerzer and MGM chief Kirk Kerkorian. Her relationship with Kardashian ended because Elvis demanded it.

She soon moved in with male model Michael Edwards, who later became attracted to her then-teenage daughter. He also claimed that Priscilla had flings with singer Julio Iglesias and actor Richard Gere in the early 1980s.

Priscilla's longest relationship was with the technology entrepreneur Marco Garibaldi, whom she started dating in 1984, and they had a son, Navarone, born in 1987. They broke up in 2006, and she started seeing TV executive Nigel Lythgoe.

After Lythgoe, she dated Richie Palmer in 2010, Barry Crocker, and Toby Anstis. Anstis was a DJ and former children's TV presenter. After being introduced by a mutual friend, they went out a couple of times, and it was over.

She reportedly had a relationship with Sir Tom Jones, who lost his wife in 2016, but he denied the claims, and she maintained that their bond was pure friendship.



In 2022, director Baz Luhrmann released an "Elvis" biopic. When he gave Priscilla a private screening, she was in awe as she said Luhrmann brilliantly and creatively told the story of the relationship between Elvis and Colonel Parker.

She also commended Austin Butler, who played Elvis. Even though he was nervous playing the part because he had big shoes to fill, he gave an outstanding performance while Olivia DeJonge portrayed Priscilla in the movie.


Priscilla applauded the director for putting his heart, soul, and hours into the film. She was also glad her daughter loved it. Priscilla said:

"I relived every moment in this film. It took me a few days to overcome the emotions as it did with Lisa."

Priscilla further revealed that she had watched the trailer over a dozen times and could see no other person than Tom Hanks playing the role of Colonel Parker.
