Elvis Presley’s deep love for Priscilla remained after the divorce
Elvis was only married once to Priscilla Presley, whom he met when she was just 14 years old during his military service in the late 1950s in Germany. The couple finally married in 1967 and nine months after their Las Vegas wedding, their only daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, was born. However, a strained relationship between the couple, including the King’s unwillingness to make love to a woman after giving birth, led to their separation in 1972 and divorce a year later.
Elvis Presley’s cousin Danny Smith was asked on his YouTube channel, “Did Elvis call or visit Priscilla regularly after the divorce just to talk as friends?”
The Memphis mob kid, whose parents worked for El Rey, replied, “I’ve heard mom and dad talk about this. Yes, they did talk and not just for Lisa because they shared a daughter together. But, you know, they talked about other things. Now how regular? I mean no one really knows, but they sure did talk. I mean they had a good relationship, I think, from what I’ve seen and [when] I was close and from what I’ve heard from everyone.”
Memphis mob member Jerry Schilling vouched for this, sharing, “I witnessed love after [they divorced]…The relationship, and the movie depicted it, was still very close. The love was still there. The divorce was… you had to fly. But love did not change. I can remember driving to your house… Elvis would sometimes leave the house still in pajamas and a robe and go talk to Priscilla at his house! This is long after the divorce.”
Priscilla expanded: “This was so cute. She sometimes passed by without warning. And sometimes it was not a good time to spend. But he still came, of course. He once wanted to show me his new car. [the 1973 Stutz Blackhawk, the last one he ever drove] and his pajamas were coming off his pants. Then of course she starts laughing and he’s like, ‘What’s up?’

Priscilla explained what had happened and Elvis replied, “I’m not here to show you my pajama bottoms, I want you to see my car!”
She talked about how her late-night ex-husband would visit her around one or two in the morning and sometimes the phone calls would come in as early as 3 a.m.
She fondly recalled: “We talked for two, three, four hours… he was so unpredictable you never knew when he was going to show up.”
