Some persistent old rumors are circulating once again about how close Elvis and Priscilla Presley remained following their divorce in 1973. Involving one of her previous beaus, these rumors make it sound like the Presleys just couldn’t let go of one another – even in the bedroom.
After divorcing Elvis, Priscilla engaged in passionate relationships
While it may have seemed like their marriage was ideal, there were many problems plaguing Elvis and Priscilla’s relationship. Rumors of his infidelity spread like wildfire, and even Priscilla had her own affairs that added to the rifts between the couple. After six years of marriage following their wedding in 1967, the two filed for divorce. However, they remained very friendly and close to one another, even holding hands as they left the courthouse following the finalization of their divorce in 1973.
Before it was finalized, however, Priscilla had already started a new relationship with martial arts guru Mike Stone. They dated for three years from 1973 to 1975 and eventually called it quits, but not before a jealous Elvis made it known he wanted him killed (which never happened). Her next relationship was with British photographer Terry O’Neill, but it only lasted two months. This was because that same jealous Elvis was constantly phoning Priscilla while she spent time with her new beau.
Priscilla shared intimate moments with Elvis
It was her third relationship, with lawyer Robert Kardashian, that arguably saw the most ‘involvement’ from Elvis. Priscilla and Rob dated for about a year, from 1975 to 1976, and though it was a short relationship, it was certainly a passionate one.
Writer Jerry Oppenheimer discussed alleged details of their relationship in his 2017 book titled, The Kardashians: An American Drama. He claimed that they welcomed an audience during their most intimate moments, specifically in the bedroom. He said that Priscilla would let Elvis listen to their intimacy: “While [Robert] was making love to Priscilla, she would get incoherent phone calls from Elvis. She would put the receiver on the pillow and let him listen.”
Priscilla ended the relationship for this reason
Priscilla and Elvis remained very close despite their divorce, but it must not have bothered Robert too much as he tried to propose marriage. Unfortunately for him, that was when Priscilla decided to end the relationship. As she explained, “I’m not going to marry anyone until Elvis dies.”
Apparently, Elvis did not share this sentiment, as before he passed away in 1977, he was engaged to actress Ginger Alden. Regardless, he and Priscilla remained very close until his untimely death.
Robert moved on, rekindling a romance with Kris Houghton, whom he later married in 1978 and shared four children with. Although Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003, his children are now some of the most famous reality television personalities in the world.
