Priscilla Presley (born May 24, 1945) is an actress and was the wife of the popular singer Elvis Presley and was divorced in 1973, he died in 1977.
She and Elvis are the parents of singer Lisa Marie Presley.
Born Priscilla Ann Wagner in Brooklyn, New York, Priscilla was the daughter of a United States Air Force officer stationed in West Germany while Elvis was stationed there during his stint in the United States Army.
They met when she was only 14 years old, but Elvis continued his courtship for eight years, until she consented to marry him on May 1st, 1967.
Her biological father, James Wagner, was a United States Navy pilot who was killed in a plane crash when Priscilla was just an infant. Her mother remarried to Paul Beaulieu, a United States Air Force officer and they called her "Priscilla Ann." The Beaulieus were stationed in West Germany at the same time Elvis was there during his stint in the United States Army. Priscilla was 14 years old when they met.
Elvis managed to talk the extremely reluctant Beaulieus into allowing Priscilla to live with his father (Vernon Presley) and step-mother at a home Elvis purchased on Heritage Drive in Memphis. The seventeen-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu "worked" on her mother to get her support but before finally agreeing, her still reluctant and protective step-father flew with her to Los Angeles where Presley was filming Fun in Acapulco. After discussing the "rules," she and her father flew to Memphis where they met with Vernon Presley, made arrangements for Priscilla's enrollment in the Immaculate Conception school and her step-father confirmed her living arrangements at Vernon Presley's house.
Once living in Memphis in 1962, Priscilla Beaulieu says she moved into Graceland bit by bit, at first spending occasional nights with Presley, later moving in and sleeping together every night. In her 1985 autobiography, Elvis and Me, she describes Presley as a very passionate man with a Pentecostal upbringing plus his generation's double standard that cheered men for their sexual prowess with women, insisting a girl should remain a virgin until married and if she did not, she would be labeled a "slut." Presley told her that they had to wait until they were married before having actual intercourse (p.130) but they could do "other things."
She writes, "we had a strong connection, much of it sexual. The two of us created some exciting and wild times." Beaulieu also recounted how Elvis would stay up all night and sleep most of the day. If he wanted to go out, he would rent out the venue so no fans would bother him, or arrange with store owners to shop after hours when the store was closed. She also talked about the prescription sleeping pills that were present from the very first night she spent with him and how their usage and variety escalated dramatically during the years they were together.
She and Presley were married on May 1, 1967 and daughter Lisa Marie was born nine months later on February 1, 1968. They separated in February of 1972 and were divorced in October of 1973. Their divorce provided for mutual custody of Lisa Marie, who lived with Priscilla in Los Angeles and with her father at Graceland.
Priscilla Presley made her television debut in 1980 as a co-host of the ABC series Those Amazing Animals. She went on to portray Jenna Wade on the soap opera Dallas from 1983 to 1988 and starred opposite Leslie Nielsen in The Naked Gun gag movie trilogy.
She has lived with Brazilian writer-director Marco Garibaldi since 1984; their son, Navarone, was born on March 1, 1987.
