Discouraging stories from the personal life of Elvis Presley

Legendary singer Elvis Presley dated many women (and girls) throughout his short but colorful career. Many of them revealed interesting and disturbing aspects of his sex life years after the affair. According to their stories, the personal life of the king of rock and roll was very different from the public personality that he presented to the fans ... Elvis Presley's wife, Priscilla, was the only woman whom the musician officially married. But like many other rock stars, Presley was not known for his fidelity. Some of his mistresses were Tennessee pageant queens, and most of them had one thing in common: they were very young. The charismatic singer was charming and persuasive, but reportedly very manipulative. Is it really? Let's get acquainted with the most amazing stories of their life as a legendary musician! It is possible that some of them are just lies. However, we cannot confirm this, as well as deny ...

One of the first documented cases where Elvis charmed a young girl happened in 1956. Jackie Rowland was 14 and Elvis was 21, and Jackie's parents discovered the pair in a side room backstage at one of his shows. When Elvis asked to take Jackie to a bar, her mother told him, "My little girl is underage and she's coming home with me." Another girl, Francis Forbes, claimed that when she was 14 years old, Elvis became interested in her ... The musician allegedly invited Forbes, along with two other 14-year-old girls, to pajama parties at his house, during which he taught the girls how to apply makeup, tickled and kissed them. Another night, Elvis asked the girls to mud wrestle in white underwear...

“He was fascinated by the idea of young teenage girls. It scared the hell out of us all,” said Lamar Fike, a former member of Elvis’ entourage. Two years after his divorce from Priscilla, when he was 39, Elvis began a close relationship with Rika Smith, a 14-year-old girlfriend of his stepbrother.

Ginger Alden entered into a relationship with Elvis Presley when she was 20 and he was 41, but she reportedly met him much earlier in her life. When she was five years old, her father worked in the Army public relations department, and she claims that it was through him that she first met Elvis.

She and her sister, Terri, a Tennessee beauty queen, met Presley, but it was Ginger who impressed him the most. Elvis hoped to start a new life with Ginger, but they had a tumultuous relationship: he once shot her car when she was leaving after another row with him. Elvis also asked his assistant to let the air out of Ginger's tires so she couldn't leave, and threatened to lock her in the Graceland gate. Here passions are heated to the limit ...

According to Priscilla and other relatives of the couple, Elvis loved to watch Priscilla when she had fun with other women: supposedly Elvis brought other girls to their bedroom with Priscilla ... It was not uncommon to collect home videos that the musician carefully kept in a silver suitcase. After his death, the suitcase was delivered to Priscilla. Presley's ex-wife also claimed that it was her star husband who introduced her to the "forbidden fruit" (drugs). Was it really? Or in such a terrible way, Elvis' wife decided to catch a wave of popularity ... It seems that no one will ever know for sure.

And again passions, and again Priscilla ... According to some sources, Elvis attacked Priscilla when she announced that she no longer loved him ...

According to some sources, Elvis installed two-way mirrors in his house to observe people. It is worth emphasizing that this is written in a book called Elvis: What happened?, which was written by the disgruntled guards of the king of rock and roll after they were fired ... The book also mentions a certain girl who was allegedly brain injured by Presley! The victim did not sue because of her loyalty and love for the singer ... That's really unexpected! Although, as can be judged, it is quite possible that in this way the men simply wanted to take revenge on the former star employer.

Elvis kept Priscilla's virginity for a long time

Elvis really appreciated the girl's innocence. His preference for young beauties was widely known, however, he was far from being what he was mistaken for. When he first met Priscilla, she was 14 and still innocent. Although fellow officers saw him take her to his room, where they remained until the early hours of the morning, he apparently simply enjoyed the company of the beautiful young lady... In fact, it took him quite some time to enter into a closer relationship with Priscilla. … As Joel Williamson, author of Elvis Presley: A Southern Life, wrote:

"Priscilla's innocence was another thing that Elvis strangely and urgently needed to uphold."

Both Priscilla and Elvis loved their daughter, Lisa-Marie, but their marriage fell apart completely after her birth… Elvis categorically refused to sleep in the same bedroom with Priscilla after she became pregnant.

Elvis led a very complicated personal life, which is not surprising considering how many young women were in love with him ... Some sources also claim that during his marriage to Priscilla, Elvis dated five women! One of them was Viva Las Vegas partner Ann-Margret Ulsson. When Priscilla found out about the relationship, she reportedly "took a vase of flowers and threw it across the room." Priscilla, in her own words, began styling her hair like Ann-Margret in an attempt to emulate her and win back Elvis' love.

He had an abnormally close relationship with his mother

Elvis' relationship with his mother, Gladys Presley, may have prepared him for an emotionally stunted adult life. It started the moment he was born: his twin Jess was stillborn. After the tragic loss of one son, Gladys developed a strong bond with her only child. They even had a secret language that persisted into adulthood. It included terms such as "iddytream", which meant ice cream, and "butch", which meant "milk". Gladys Presley succumbed to hepatitis at just 46… 23-year-old Elvis was so upset that he tried to jump into his mother’s grave…
