Over the years, The King of Rock and Roll had a number of relationships from his wife Priscilla Presley to Linda Thompson and Ginger Alden. But it turns out Elvis Presley told his cousin and Memphis Mafia member a huge relationship secret. Billy Smith made the reveal on his son’s YouTube channel, Memphis Mafia Kid.
Billy said: “Elvis loved the women that he was with…but his career came first and that’s just how Elvis was.
“He really didn’t want to be married, although Priscilla was an exception.
“These women made Elvis happy and that was the main thing.
“I don’t want to hurt any of these women’s feeling, don’t mean to, but let me tell you a little secret, this is a little bit of a bombshell.”
He added: “[Ginger] can deny it, but so many people around Elvis knew it.”
Next year, an Elvis biopic is being released starring Austin Butler as The King.
Directed by Baz Luhrmann, the film will focus on Elvis’ relationship with manager Colonel Tom Parker – who will be played by Tom Hanks.
Last year, Priscilla Presley gave an update on the “very stylised” Elvis movie.
The 74-year-old, who had a three-hour lunch with the director, told Smooth Radio: “I’m involved as much as Baz will let me be involved because he’s learning as he’s going along. I had Jerry come to my house and visit with Baz.
“We had lunch, and Baz told us both what he had in mind. Now, mind you, this is Baz Luhrmann. It’s going to be very stylised. I mean, this is not going to be just a regular film.
“Yeah. I met him in Memphis. He brought Austin over, who is playing Elvis, to meet me. I am meeting with Austin soon, back in LA. He is sending me the script when they finish up the little details. So he has me pretty much involved.”
The untitled Elvis Presley biopic will be released on October 1, 2021.
