Priscilla Presley has been taking a walk down memory lane today, May 1st the day she married the King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley in 1967.

Priscilla took to her Instagram account and posted a loving photo of herself and Elvis Presley kissing on their wedding day on what would have been the couple’s 52nd wedding
anniversary had they not divorced on October 9, 1973.

It is no secret that Elvis fans considered Priscilla Presley the luckiest woman alive when she won the heart of Elvis more than 5 decades ago. Cillia, as Elvis affectionately called her,
is also the mother of his only child, Lisa Marie Presley. Priscilla captioned her loving memory photo share with some of Elvis’ song lyrics.

What started out having all fans believing was a fairy tale wedding and marriage made in heaven left fans all shook up when they learned that what they thought was the perfect
couple was ending their union after only six short years of marriage.

As time went on and the shock of the couple’s split lessened fans began to learn more and more details that were revealed by Priscilla that her marriage to Elvis was not all
everyone thought it to be and that the King was not as innocent and pure as his millions of adoring fans had made him out to be.

As previously reported Priscilla Presley has spoken out numerous times over the decades revealing more and more private details about her personal and private life with Elvis

There was also the release of a rare audio of a Las Vegas concert reveals Elvis Presley speaking to the fans about some intimate personal subjects concerning his life and divorce
with Priscilla Presley.

“The thing I’m trying to get across,” Elvis began. “We’re the very best of friends and we always have been. Our divorce came about not because of another man, or another woman,
but because of the circumstances involving my career.” “I was traveling too much, I was gone too much and it was just an agreement. I didn’t think it was fair to her, that I was gone
too much. “We just made an agreement to always be friends and be close and care because we have a daughter to raise.”

Many Elvis Presley fans have come to think that Priscilla Presley used Elvis after the divorce to get ahead and continues to use the Presley name and her controlling interest in
Graceland to pad her bank account which they feel is just wrong.

Despite what Elvis Presley fans have come to think about his ex-wife Priscilla Presley one thing will always remain a fact, Elvis fell in love with her and despite the divorce and any
personal problems the two had over the years, they reportedly remained in love, and extremely close right up until his death on August 16, 1977, and according to Priscilla if Elvis
was still with us they would still be the best of friends and each other’s one true love.

Elvis and Priscilla separated on February 23, 1972, and filed for legal separation on July 26, 1972.

If Priscilla filed for divorce herself, it would mean that the Public Records would have the private home address of Priscilla listed and because he felt this would be risking the
security of f both her and Lisa Marie, Elvis decided that he should file for the divorce due to his home address already being known by the public. And so, Elvis Presley filed for
divorce on January 8, 1973, his 38th birthday and a week before his historic live Worldwide concert performance via satellite known as 'Aloha From Hawaii'.

The divorce of Mr & Mrs Presley was finalized on October 9, 1973. And as the newly divorced pair left the courthouse they walked out hand in hand and on good terms.

The couple agreed to shared custody of Lisa Marie and the settlement reached by Elvis and Priscilla agreed that Elvis would pay her a $100,000 lump sum and $1,000 a month
spousal support and $500 a month in child support.  

Priscilla made is clear that she wanted to make it on her own and prove that her marriage to Elvis Presley was not about money?  However, soon afterwards, Priscilla hired new
lawyers who immediately informed her that shes should throw back the agreed settlement and to up her original demands.

She did, pointing out that a star of Elvis' stature could easily afford more for his former wife and child. Priscilla was awarded an outright cash payment of $725,000 as well as
spousal support, child support, 5% of Elvis' new publishing companies and half the income from the sale of their Beverly Hills home.  Not too bad for announcing she wanted  "make
it on her own" and to prove that her marriage to Elvis was "Not About Money"???
