It has been reported Elvis had an agreement with Priscilla’s parents that she could only leave Germany if she was looked after by a guardian, and so it was arranged she would move in with Vernon and Dee.
However, it is reported that within a few weeks Priscilla was set up in the main house with her man.
In 1976, as Elvis’ health began to fail, Vernon fired the “Memphis Mafia,” a group of paid people Elvis kept with him while on tour, as a means of cutting back on “expenses.”
Only a year later, in 1977, Elvis died, and Vernon was named an executor of his will.
Along with Priscilla, the pair helped to get Graceland up to snuff as a tourist attraction, and when Vernon died in 1979, his share of Elvis’ wealth was passed on to Elvis’ only child, Lisa Marie.
