She revealed that nobody was able to change his ways.


According to an article published by Fox News, Priscilla Presley, the former wife of the legendary Elvis Presley, recently spoke in depth about Elvis’ drug addiction and his last days.

Priscilla was asked to speak at a promotion event for the upcoming documentary titled Elvis Presley: The Searcher. Priscilla is the producer of the film.

Priscilla’s address gripped the audience, as she boldly opened up about the dark secrets of The King’s drug abuse and his untimely death.


The late pop star's former wife expressed that it was a troubled time for the whole family, and they did not see his end coming.

Priscilla also admitted that she was often asked why nobody close to Elvis did anything about his drug problem.

As an answer, she stated that everyone in the close-knit circle tried at some point or the other to talk to Elvis and get him to treat his addiction. She added that Elvis was adamant and wouldn’t budge.

Priscilla also suggested that Elvis’ ego came in the way of listening to other people’s advice. He apparently drove away anyone who tried to persuade him to change.

She also asserted that Elvis knew exactly what he was doing and that his obsession with prescription drugs might eventually claim his life.


Speaking about the beginning of Elvis’ addiction, Priscilla revealed that it first developed during his 2-year-tenure in the U.S. Army, specifically his time in Germany.

Priscilla shared that prescription pills were often given to soldiers to keep them awake and alert at night. Since he was responsible for being on guard most of the times, he started getting used to the influence of the drug.

However, his drug abuse did not keep him from making great music consistently.

The documentary debuted at SXSW in Austin and covers Elvis’ final recording session in Jungle Room in Graceland.
