Lisa is a close friend of her father's ex-girfriend Linda Thompson.

In 2003, after advice from Thompson's record producer and then-husband David Foster, she launched a career as a singer.

Her debut album was called To Whom It May Concern and reached #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

To promote it she performed in a concert in the UK, something her father never did.

Presley released her second album, Now What, in 2005 and it reached #9 on the Billboard 200.


On May 1 Presley married Priscilla at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas

Fearing he had been forgotten, Presley defied Parker and made a comeback television special.

Over the summer he taped the television special that was released on December 3 to high ratings.

It's soundtrack reached #8 and produced his first Top Twenty single "If I Can Dream" (#12, 1968) since 1965.


February 1, 1968 their only child Lisa Marie was born, exactly nine months after the wedding.

June 28 Elvis began taping a Christmas special for NBC Television, dressed in his black leather. He returned back to the top of the American Entertainment scene.

With this success Presley turned to performing in Las Vegas.

On October 9, 1973, after 5 years of marriage Elvis and Priscilla were divorced. It was Elvis who filed for the divorce, as token gesture to save Priscilla the embarrassment as she was the mother of his daughter, Lisa Marie, who only 4 years old at the time.

"My worst memory, and the worst day of my life has to be the day Priscilla took Lisa Marie away from Graceland," says Schilling. "To this day, that image still haunts me..."

"It was I very sad day for all of us," says Schilling. "I remember how Elvis just stood in Lisa's bedroom and watched in silence as Alberta (Graceland's cook) helped Priscilla pack Lisa's clothes and toys into several suitcases... Elvis said nothing, but I could the pain in his eyes," recalls Schilling.

"Suddenly, he yelled out to me and Joe (Esposito) to help Priscilla put the baggage into the car. Elvis just couldn't bring himself to carry the bags out to the car, himself," whispers Schilling.

"Lisa was more important than life itself to Elvis." Now she was being taken away from him," says Schilling.

"Elvis just stood watching as we load up Priscilla's blue Mercedes. By than Priscilla was in tears and shaking," says Schilling.

"Elvis took Priscilla into his arms, kissed her gently on the mouth, and said. 'If you need anything, Cilla. Anything at all? You know to let me know'."

Until that finally moment, Elvis was still composed, but when it was time to bid farewell to his daughter, Elvis broke down and cried as he swooped his beloved Lisa into his arms.

Elvis held Lisa tight for a very long time. "Be a good girl, Button-head," whispered Elvis. (Button-head was Elvis' pet name for Lisa) "You come and visit often, you hear," said Elvis trying to hold back the tears.

When Lisa Marie was 8-years-old, her proud father, Elvis, gave his beloved child a mink coat and a diamond ring. Elvis spoiled their little girl so much that Lisa Marie would throw tantrums when she returned to her mother after a Daddy visit, screaming, "I wanna go back to Graceland!"

There, Elvis allowed Lisa Marie to tear around in her own golf cart until 4 a.m. "She was a terror when I got her back," says Priscilla.

When Lisa Marie turned 16, Priscilla handed her a unique gift. "I gave her all the tabloids I had kept, everything that was written about her. And me. She got the message: "No matter what you do-or don’t do-your past will always find you."

Presley married her first husband Danny Keough on October 3, 1988.

They had two children together, Danielle Riley (born May 19, 1989) and Benjamin Storm (born October 21, 1992). Presley divorced Keough on May 6, 1994.

Two weeks later she shocked the world by marrying Michael Jackson on May 18, 1994. The marriage lasted 18 months. There was speculation that Jackson, who owns The Beatles catalog, wanted to buy Elvis's catalog too. There was also wide speculation Jackson married Presley for various public relations purposes. The two divorced on January 18, 1996.

On August 10, 2002 she married Nicolas Cage, someone well-known for his Elvis-obsession. They were together for only three months and divorced in 2002 (Cage later remarried).

In 2005 Presley was said to be dating her guitarist, Michael Lockwood.

The story of her parents' life together and her birth and childhood until her father's passing in 1977 was recounted in her mother's 1985 book, Elvis and Me.

KING: Were you very close to your father?


KING: It was a daddy-daughter kind of thing?

L.-M. PRESLEY: Yeah, very much.

KING: What was he like as a father?

L.-M. PRESLEY: Very adoring, very sweet. Very -- I mean, I knew that he was crazy about me.

KING: Did you know what he was to the world at 9?

L.-M. PRESLEY: Yeah. You know, in some weird way I definitely got sort of grooved into the whole idea early on. So I don't know how that happened. It just kind of -- it just was -- that was my life. I didn't know any different.

In a world obsessed with her father — to the point that many refuse to believe he is dead -Lisa Marie Presley finds his name more of a curse than a blessing.

Elvis' only daughter will chat happily about her family — daughter Danielle, Son Ben, ex-husbands Danny Keough, Michael Jackson and mum Priscilla.

She'll talk freely about her work, her attempts at acting and her recent efforts in the recording studio.

All my life I've had strangers asking me about my father and what it's like to be his daughter, I'm sick of it!"

Now 24, Lisa Marie is still the spitting image of the king of rock, but her voice is an assertive Californian rasp, rather than an echo of his southern drawl.

And Lisa would rather talk about the things that distance her from Elvis than the endless comparisons that are inevitably made whenever she appears in public.

"For a long time I used to believe I would never be anything but Elvis' daughter, never having my own identity. Now I am determined to make a life for myself.

I can't live my life in the shadow of my father's image forever. I want to do my own thing ... I want to have my own success.

Maybe as an actress, maybe as a singer, maybe as a mother. Whatever it is, I want to be totally in control of my own destiny."

What she calls "just being a mother" seems to have been the making of Lisa Marie.

The birth of Elvis' grand daughter Danielle, now almost three years old, has forced maturity onto the former wild child.

"Becoming a mother and facing the everyday problems of a demanding child — and believe me, Danielle can be very naughty at times — I have grown up.

My mother warned me having kids makes you face yourself ... know your limitations. Now I know what she means. And before you ask , my mother does not rule my life.

She offers advice, but only when I ask. Danny and I are new parents, so we have spoiled our baby terribly. I suppose I'm only doing the same my daddy did with me.

Staying at home with my baby has made me think about many things... like what I was put on this earth for."

While her belief in Scientology appears to answer the " why? " in her life, what Lisa Marie does is easily dealt with.

For the past year she has spent six hours a day, three days a week studying stage and screen acting at the reputable Wilshire Theatre. But despite her clear commitment, her father's name closes more doors than it opens.

I have auditioned for movie roles, just like the rest of my drama class, but it seems that my name has been a setback.

I've had my share of disappointments ... because many producers don't believe I'm taking acting seriously.

They think I'm just riding on the name Presley. But then I think about how my daddy was criticized at the beginning, and it gives me the willpower to keep going.

I'm no wimp, and I'm not about to give up after the first obstacle," says Lisa Marie.

Danny and Lisa Marie's life long friend Charlie Hodge (who was a personal friend and sang harmony with Elvis on stage for five years) believe that Lisa Marie could become a successful recording artist because she has a wonderful singing voice.

"Even as a child, Lisa Marie would sit by the stereo and quietly listen to her father's recordings, over and over again.

She has certainly inherited an ear for music from Elvis. Lisa Marie has a very sharp sense when it comes to music, " says Charlie Hodge. " If she doesn't make it as a singer, she would make a great record producer."

Over and above her ambition to become an actress, Lisa Marie is trying her hand at recording an album in Nashville, in the very studio where her father played his last session in 1971.

∙ Her debut album To Whom It May Concern was certified Gold.

∙ Her father called her Injun, Yisa and Buttonhead.

∙ She is a member of the Church of Scientology (John Travolta introduced her and her mother to the religion).

∙ She has suffered from depression.

∙ She recently stated on Oprah she is 5'2. [[1]]

∙ She is a recovering drug addict who began using drugs at thirteen, but with active help from the Church of Scientology was reportedly free of drugs by the age of seventeen.

∙ In 2002 she testified before a hearing of the United States Congress to speak out against medicating children for mental disorders (the practice is also condemned by the Church of Scientology).

∙ Her second album,Now What was her first album to have a Parental Advisory sticker. Although, an edited version of the album is available.


Lisa Marie Presley supports several charities, including:

∙ Presley Place, which combats homelessness in Memphis.

∙ CCHR, a Scientology connected group that opposes psychiatry and psychiatrists.

∙ LEAP, Literacy, Education and Abilities Program, a Scientology connected group affiliated with Applied Scholastics that promotes L. Ron Hubbard's studying techniques.
