Priscilla Presley breaks down during emotional TalkTV interview
Priscilla Presley lifted the lid on the years following her divorce from Elvis and explained she didn’t marry again because she doesn’t think “he could handle that”.
She was married to the late King of Rock and Roll between 1967 and 1973, and the couple shared a daughter, Lisa Marie.
In a recent Q&A session held at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas, the 78-year-old icon opened up about her reluctance to remarry in consideration of her legendary ex’s sentiments, as reported by People.
She candidly confessed: “I just don’t think that he could handle that,” referring to the rock and roll legend who died in 1977 at 42.
Priscilla went on to stress that as long as Elvis was alive, she had no intentions of marrying another man.

“To be honest with you, I never wanted to marry after him. I never had any desire,” she admitted. “No one could ever match him.”
In the years following her separation from Elvis, Priscilla was romantically linked with karate instructor Mike Stone, though their relationship ended in 1975, two years before Elvis’s untimely death.
Starting in 1978, Priscilla began a relationship with model Michael Edwards, and the two had an on-and-off connection until 1984.
Last week, Priscilla candidly opened up to Piers Morgan about her legendary family on his TalkTV programme.
Priscilla met Elvis in Germany back in September 1959 when she was a teenager, according to the official blog for his Memphis mansion.
