Movies by Baz Luhrmann always feel like big events.
Romeo and Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Australia, and The Great Gatsby are all works by William Shakespeare. There are a lot of big movies this year, so it’s not surprising that Elvis was one of the most anticipated.
Austin Butler, who is known for his role in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” plays the “King of Rock and Roll,” as he is often called. So many movies, documentaries, and other things have made up stories and stories about the cultural icon.
But the most recent movie about him might leave you with a lot of questions about the singer and his life. Is Priscilla Presley still alive, to be exact?
Is Priscilla Presley Still Alive?
Yes, Priscilla Presley is still alive. She is 77 years old right now.
According to Distractify, Elvis first met her at a party in West Germany in 1959, when he was 24 and she was 14.
Her parents didn’t like that she was dating the famous musician at the time, but they spent a lot of time with him before he went back to the United States in 1960.

Even though Elvis was very busy with his career, they still talked often before they met again in Los Angeles in 1962.
She moved to Los Angeles to be with him in 1963, and her parents heard talk of marriage long before Elvis asked Priscilla to marry him in 1966. Then, in 1967, they got married in Las Vegas.
Did Priscilla Remarry After Elvis?
After Elvis died, Priscilla did not get married again.
Lisa Marie Presley, their first and only child, was born in 1968. On October 9, 1973, six years after they got married, the divorce was finalized.
She never remarried, but she was with the Brazilian screenwriter and computer programmer Marco Garibaldi for a long time, from 1984 to 2006.

How Many Times Did She Marry?
Elvis Presley met his future wife, Priscilla Presley, at a party he threw at his home in Bad Nauheim, Germany, on September 13, 1959. At the time, he was stationed there with the U.S. Army. When Priscilla got home late that night, her parents were upset and begged her to cut all ties with Elvis and never talk to him again.
He did a good job of getting them to agree to let him meet with her. They spent a lot of time together before he left West Germany in March 1960. In the summer of 1962, a year after the last time she saw Elvis, Priscilla moved to Memphis.

On May 1, 1967, this happy couple got married at the Aladdin Hotel in Sin City. Tom Parker, who was Elvis Presley’s manager, set up the wedding to get people’s attention, but not many people came. Even though she divorced Elvis in 1973, she has stayed involved with his legacy and has a great relationship with the King of Rock and Roll.
Soon after her divorce, Priscilla moved in with Mike Stone, and she stayed with him until 1975. She dated male model Michael Edwards from 1978 to 1985, but they broke up because Edwards was too rude to Lisa Marie, who was a teenager at the time.
On March 1, 1987, Presley and Marco Garibaldi, her partner of 22 years and a screenwriter and computer programmer, had a son named Navarone. After they broke up in 2006, Priscilla started dating TV executive Nigel Lythgoe, who she stayed with until 2009. It was also said that Presley dated photographer Terry O’Neill and lawyer Robert Kardashian.
A Glimpse Into Priscilla Presley’s Life
Elvis Presley was born on May 24, 1945, in Brooklyn, New York, to Priscilla Ann Wagner. Her mother, Ann, was only 19 when she had Priscilla, and her father, James, a Navy captain, died in a plane crash when Priscilla was only 6 months old.
In 1973, Priscilla and her friend and stylist Olivia Bis opened a clothing store in Los Angeles called Bis & Beau. Cher, Barbra Streisand, and Natalie Wood were all fans of the store. After Elvis died in 1977, Priscilla was Lisa Marie’s executor. With the help of CEO Jack Soden, she turned Graceland into a popular tourist attraction so that she wouldn’t have to spend her daughter’s money on maintenance, taxes, and other costs.
Priscilla has produced several movies and TV shows, such as “Elvis and Me” (1988), “Breakfast with Einstein” (1998), “Finding Graceland” (1998), and the upcoming Netflix adult cartoon series “Agent King.” In all three “Naked Gun” movies, she played Lt. Frank Drebin’s love interest, Jane Spencer.
In 2000, she joined the board of directors at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. She was a regular cast member on the TV show “Dallas” from 1983 to 1988. Priscilla was also given the main role in “Charlie’s Angels,” but she turned it down.
