Priscilla Presley recently opened up about her early relationship with Elvis, which began when she was only 14-years-old.
“People think, Oh, it was sex…. Not at all,” Presley said. “I never had sex with him. He was very kind, very soft, very loving, but he also respected the fact I was only 14 years old. We were more in mind, in thought, and that was our relationship.”
Despite her innocent depiction of their courtship, Priscilla admits that, “it was very difficult for my parents to understand that Elvis would be so interested in me and why.”
“And I really do think because I was more of a listener. Elvis would pour his heart out to me in every way in Germany: his fears, his hopes, the loss of his mother—which he never, ever got over. And I was the person who really, really sat there to listen and to comfort him. That was really our connection. Even though I was 14, I was actually a little bit older in life—not in numbers. That was the attraction.”
