Elvis Aaron Presley also known simply as Elvis, was an American singer, musician and actor but he was a traditional man who didn’t like his wife to work as he could offer her everything, hence Priscilla said he was oppressive and jealous.
According to Elvis wife Priscilla they didn’t consummate their relationship until after they were married even though they lived together for six years until then. Elvis was old fashioned that way.
Presley met his wife Priscilla when she was 14. They moved in together when she was 16, for which he asked her parents’ permission first, and they married in Las Vegas in 1967, when Priscilla was 22.
Their daughter was born exactly 9 months later. By the time she was 23 and had a baby, he lost sexual interest in her, hence their divorce. Elvis Presley, who adored his mother Gladys, could not have sex with his child’s mother out of respect for her.
King of Rock and Roll did cheat on her however but it was only Anne Margret, his Viva Las Vegas co-star, whom Priscilla admitted she feared the most, and with whom Elvis stayed friends until the end.
Priscilla smashed a vase when she was informed about their affair. Elvis remained friends with Priscilla after the divorce and she would even advise his new girlfriend on how to take care of him.
Elvis and Priscilla, who said that Elvis was her first and true love, would talk for hours on the phone for years after they divorced.
In addition to having the ability to rock out like no other, Elvis Presley was known to be gentle at times, especially in his younger years. It is widely believed that the king didn’t like spending nights by himself.
Some speculate his desire to not be alone while he slept was due to the hardship he faced in coping with the loss of his mother, who passed shortly before he was sent to Germany. In any case, Presley made sure he had someone by his side throughout his service. And, as you’ll soon learn, it wasn’t always Priscilla.
Elvis Presley was, apparently, a germophobe. That’s right: The rowdy, guitar-playing man’s man was terrified of germs, Priscilla told the Daily Mail in 2015. And the star went to great lengths to make sure he was protected. The king of rock didn’t like eating at other people’s homes, and when he did, he would take his own silverware. According to Priscilla, “he would drink where the handle was, knowing that no one would ever drink at that side.
No eccentric rock star’s image is complete without an exotic pet and Elvis loved children and animals. Once he went to a pet store and he bought 15 puppies. He cleaned out every cage. He bought every puppy in the store. He kept a few and he gifted the rest to his friends and his girlfriend’s parents. Elvis used to say that Dog is God spelled backwards. He also had a pet monkey named Scatter.
