Priscilla thought her daughter “saw something of Elvis in Michael,” but ultimately knew it “could be a disaster.”
She added: “At that point, the right thing to do would have been to bite my tongue, but I didn’t bite my tongue.”
Speaking further about this in a mother-daughter interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2005, Priscilla said she was “concerned and suspicious” by Michael from the moment he tried to meet Lisa Marie, which happened when she was only 16.
According to Priscilla, Michael contacted her for dinner while she was working on the USA TV soap Dallas, and asked for Lisa Marie to come along too.
Priscilla said: “I didn’t know him. That kind of passed and he got hold of her somehow through a mutual friend… she went off and got married and I didn’t even know they got married.
