Elvis Presley 'Pleaded' Ex-Wife to Take Him Back


'King of Rock and Roll' Elvis Presley begged his former wife Priscilla to take him back just weeks before his death, a new book has revealed.

Author Shirley Dieu, a long-time girlfriend of the late icon's former road manager and confidant Joe Esposito, recounts the story in her book 'Memphis Mafia ­Princess: Living In The Elvis World'.

Dieu, who interviewed Priscilla, says she she met Presley in July 1977, four years after their divorce. Presley died on August 16, same year, reported the Daily Express.

"I'm miserable. I want my family back. I miss the family times we all had. Lisa needs her mom and dad together," Presley had told Priscilla, according to the book.

He also told Priscilla he had no intention of marrying his new fiancee, 20-year-old Ginger Alden, who was devastated to discover she did not figure in his will after his death on August 16, Dieu wrote.
