44 years after divorcing Elvis Presley, Priscilla is still talking about what led to the end of the romance.
Spoiler — it has a lot to do with lovely ladies in cute skirts.
Last month marked the 40th anniversary of the passing of The King, and the former actress has been touring the world giving speeches and having intimate sit-downs with fans where she shares intimate stories.
While with adoring fans in Australia, Priscilla confessed that she would be opening more about her personal life because she is tired of all the unauthorized biographies being published about her 15-year romance with the iconic star.
The businesswoman is determined to dispel fiction and split the lies from the truth.
Elvis and Prisclla were married from 1967 to 1973 and the romance led to the birth of their only child together in 1968 — Lisa Marie.
The Naked Gun star said she filed for divorce because she was tired of sharing the musician with groupies.
The Ambassador of the Dream Foundation told a well-known publication: “There’s a lot of temptation, a lot of infidelities and I just couldn’t live it any longer, I was not willing to share my man.”
She went on to explain: “It was just a very difficult lifestyle, rock n’ roll is not glamorous. I am at a time in my life where I feel a lot more comfortable with people. I am asked so many questions all the time – there’s a lot of books that I have been glancing through that are just so altered, and the truth is just not there.”
Priscilla also stated: “I do not want to leave this world in the hands of other people writing my story. One of them (the myths) being that my father made Elvis promise to marry me. That he made the call or that I made the call to visit Elvis and I was the one who first called him.”
She also opened up about the fake stories that her father pushed her at the age of 14 to visit Elvis who was 24.
She continued: “First of all, back in the day, a girl never called a guy. Ever. It just isn’t part of the culture. The man always calls first, and my parents were very much from that era. It was a handover from me, too, you never called a boy. That just never happened and that Elvis promised wasn’t true.”
The TV star concluded with: “It was done very properly, carefully and decently. It was 1959 and still in the time of being proper. People do not quite get that, even today, it is just appalling to people.”
Priscilla will publish a children’s book about her former husband.
