Few romances are as mythic as the love between Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll and his lovely child-bride Priscilla.
Amo Mama brings you the revelations made by Priscilla Presley, now 71, regarding her marriage to Elvis.

The marriage swept her away into a private world where reality was suspended, and they lived — as she claimed — inside a bubble.
Motherhood arrived a short nine months after the wedding, as Priscilla gave birth to the couple’s only child, Lisa Marie.
The relationship became more complicated as Presley’s career grew ever more demanding, and Priscilla found herself needing more of her husband’s attention — and contact with the «real world».
After six years of marriage, the relationship soured and the two parted, though Presley made several last ditch attempts to win back his wife.
As Priscilla later said, it was too little, after too much damage; and the two divorced, though they remained ever-loving and devoted parents to their daughter, Lisa Marie, who bears an astonishing physical resemblance to her legendary father.
