Elvis ex Linda Thompson pays tribute to King and Lisa Marie in rare footage post

Elvis Presley was ’nuzzling’ against me says Linda Thompson

Miss Tennessee model Linda Thompson was Elvis Presley’s girlfriend from 1972-6, who lived with the star at his Graceland mansion.

During this period, The King’s daughter with his ex-wife Priscilla Presley would come and stay at the house during her vacations from school.

Tragically Lisa Marie Presley died at just 54 in January, following her father’s untimely death at 42 in 1977.

One of the Elvis fan pages shared rare footage of Linda with Elvis, Lisa Marie and Memphis Mafia wife Jo Smith, who is married to The King’s cousin Billy Smith.

The four were captured leaving a store and getting into a car with a caption of Linda’s on dating Elvis included.
