Elvis ex Linda Thompson pays tribute to The King on 50th anniversary of Aloha From Hawaii | Music | Entertainment
Linda wrote in a previous post on Aloha From Hawaii: “Elvis and I were only 6 months into our 4 1/2 year romance. Yes, after the first year he began to have short lived ‘dalliances’ but they were never anything more than that.” She then went on to clarify some truths surrounding her relationship with the star, who died at just 42 in 1977.
The King’s ex wrote: “Facts: I always knew where his heart was. I was his only live in girlfriend for those years. We shared incredibly intimate times together including his hospital stays. I was at every Vegas engagement, every tour, every holiday, every important event of his during those years. That defines a real girlfriend – Not someone who has an occasional rendezvous. I am very confident of my place in his history. And those who know… Really know. I’m just sayin’. #alittlethingcalledlife #truth #tellitlikeitis #tellitlikeitwas #nopretenders.”
Linda, who helped raise Lisa Marie Presley from 1972-6, has shared her devastation at the news of her sudden death at 54 last week.
