Priscilla Presley took action after Elvis Presley died

Presley is best known for being the only wife of singer Elvis Presley. The couple married in 1967 after an eight-year courtship. Elvis met the bride when she was 14, and was 24. In the memory of Presley, Elvis and Me, she described the King of Rock and Roll as “control.” Some of what he did said she was telling her what to wear in public. She also said it would be mentally and physically abusive at times. In their relationship, Elvis seems to have had several issues with celebrities like Ann-Margret.

Landon has denied trying to take over Bartlett’s representation. However, the late actor admitted that he preferred to work on projects on his own. Presley tweeted that they resolved the issue when the film ended.

“After the party, Michael came up to me and apologized for his behavior,” she wrote.
