Priscilla Ann Beaulieu Wagner is the woman Elvis, described in biographies as a drug addict and young virgins, laid his eyes on. He was “the king”, no one would question him, at least at that time.
However, they are other times. The actions of a man, revered (in the past) by the masses, now carry the weight of the present. Feminism, hated by some and pushed by other humans, has given them the ability to think better about some stories, such as that of this late artist.
When Priscilla was a 14-year-old teenager, she had a first encounter with Elvis. It was in Germany, during 1959, when he was doing military service in that European nation. He had put his artistic career on hold.
Some time after that first date, Presley returned to the US, to continue what he left pending on stage, and something else. He remained focused on the teenager, whose parents were opposed to her dating a 24-year-old man. Quite a scandal in current times.
“My parents didn’t want me to date Elvis, they said he was too young, which was true.”, Priscilla confirmed to the magazine Ladies Home Journal in 1973.
The initial opposition, as everyone knows, did not work.
They managed for 3 years (from 1959 to 1962), to have contact, mostly by phone. However, she managed to meet several weeks a year with her beloved “king of rock”, until her parents had no choice but to let her settle near him at Graceland, Elvis Presley’s mansion in Memphis.
The situation was not easy. Cilla’s parents, as Elvis called Priscilla, weren’t exactly her fans whom she had enthralled. Media such as El Mundo, from Spain, have published part of the story in which he affirms a tense and intense negotiation between the artist and the Beaulieu.
They had set two conditions: that the young woman finish high school at the Catholic school she attended. The other, that he graduated. The first was fulfilled, the other was not possible. The couple had other plans.
Priscilla moved her belongings to the home of the man who radiated fame and fortune, but who had a frenzied present, the product of an extreme combination of both.
The king … of revelry
When young Priscilla moved into her “boyfriend’s” house, there was no immediate wedding, graduation or other ceremony, according to the requirements of her concerned parents.
What there was was a lot of revelry. The wild party was not lacking in the couple’s nest of luxury.
Priscilla combined her daytime life with studies. The nightlife, with parties that lasted until dawn, in which alcohol and drugs were also combinable.
In the eighties, he spoke about it with the magazine People.
“In those years I felt that I was leading a double life, the student girl by day and the femme fatale by night”.
There was a long way to go. In 1967, Elvis and Priscilla were married at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. More than 100 people witnessed the link and the reception that was extended to Graceland, as was customary, until dawn, when they would have fathered their daughter Lisa Marie Presley, since she was born 9 months later.
But Priscilla’s pregnancy was marked not only by the symptoms of the prenatal period. In addition, the others persisted that indicated her husband’s drug addiction and that she faced in that delicate time. It was Priscilla who later confirmed it to the press.
“It took him two or three hours to wake up and he was always groggy and irritable from the pills he took to sleep. Sometimes he would sleep fourteen hours a day and the only way to wake up was by taking a dexedrine “, he assured.
A divorce, a “voracious appetite” for virgins and an almost announced death
It had been 5 years since the wedding of Priscilla and Elvis Presley, when she realized that the unbridled life of her husband, would reach her along with her daughter.
In 1972, the young mother filed for divorce from the King of Rock and got custody of her daughter Lisa Marie. The court had no major objection, because the singer’s chaotic present was in the public domain.
Youth and common sense led her to make such a decision at the age of 25.
For Elvis, the situation went from bad to worse. This is argued by an unauthorized biography of Joel Williamson: Elvis Presley: A Southern Life.
The author maintains that this artist intensified his addictions and included that of having sexual relations with minors who were virgins.
“Elvis and Priscilla’s love story ended in a humiliating marital rape”Williamson said.
The separation with Priscilla and the daily debauchery were the perfect cocktail, according to unauthorized accounts, which would put Elvis in more than question in the five years following the mediatic divorce.
On August 16, 1977, millions mourned the death of the King of Rock, who succumbed to a heart attack. At that time, Elvis weighed 130 kilos. The drugs had done their thing in his system, according to the medical reports of the date.
His story continues. But not only the musical. What in the past was a marriage, with a minor, would now be a scandal, for obvious reasons.
