Priscilla Presley with married “Think You Can Dance” judge Nigel Lythgoe

The National Enquirer has a new article this week that shows that homewreckers come in all ages and packages – from the young and nubile to the surgically ageless and calculating. Priscilla Presley, 63, is said to be in an adulterous relationship with English producer and choreographer Nigel Lythgoe, 59, best known in the US as a judge on the talent show “So You Think You Can Dance.” Priscilla’s new boyfriend is also an executive producer of “American Idol.” Nigel is said to be torn between Priscilla and his wife of 34 years, with whom he has two adult sons. Nigel and his wife won’t reconcile if Priscilla has any say in it though:

For more than a year, Priscilla has been in an on-and-off romance with “So You Think You Can Dance” judge Nigel Lythgoe. Nigel’s estranged wife has been fighting to win him back, and at times he has indicated that he’s open to a reconciliation.

Now it is as if Priscilla has a message for her boyfriend’s estranged wife Bonnie: “I’ve got him.”

Priscilla recently told a pal: “He’s not going back to his wife.”

Priscilla… kept [their] relationship low profile until recently. On August 3, she took [Nigel] to daughter Lisa Marie’s baby shower in Los Angeles and introduced him as her new boyfriend, said the pal.

“Up until that time, they had tried to keep the romance a secret because Nigel was torn between Priscilla and Bonnie,” the friend said.

Nigel and Bonnie, who have two sons together, separated early last year, not long after he met Priscilla at a charity fundraiser at her Los Angeles home on October 6, 2006. It was just months after Priscilla had split with her boyfriend of 22 years, Marco Garibaldi.

Priscilla Presley was a contestant on “Dancing With The Stars” – not the show that Lythgoe works on, this spring and was eliminated in the fifth episode.

TMZ reported in late July that Priscilla and Nigel were seen making out at a restaurant in LA.

The way The Enquirer tells it Priscilla was instrumental in breaking up Nigel’s long marriage. It’s possible she was just around at the right time, though, kind of like Sienna Miller and Balthazar Getty.

    Why are they fighting over him? He looks like a chicken.

  2. Syko says:

    Yeah, but look at her with all her failed face work…at least he looks reasonably normal.

  3. Spike says:

    What a wanker!

  4. Orangejulius says:

    Shrieks of desperation on her part. 63 years old, face spoiled with bad procedures, recently broken up from long-term relationship. Not exactly ingredients for success. Too bad about his wife.

  5. Sara says:

    Sorry…you lost me when you mentioned her age. 😯

  6. daisy424 says:

    Nigel looks like Siegfried Fischbacher.

  7. KERRI says:

    I heard about this affair quite a while ago. Not news to me at all.

    BTW: I think Nigel is an intelligent, attractive man, BUT, my heart belongs to Piers Morgan.

    Got a thing for intelligent British men. They capture my heart, and Bloody Hell, I’m not ashamed to admit it.

  8. Codzilla says:

    She just effed herself up royally with the injections, didn’t she? 😯

    Didn’t it turn out to be motor oil or something?

  9. Gigohead says:

    Pricilla is obviously been beaten bad by the bad plastic surgery stick. Wow!

    What I find frightening is that she A LOT of dollars thanks to that the best face money can afford?..

    I shudder to think such a thought.


  10. vdantev says:

    He needs a new beard anyway.

  11. Jen says:

    HE is the one who is married. Sure, she’s kind of a biatch for so proud of dating a married man, but he’s the one who broke the vows and is cheating.

  12. CB Rawks says:

    Firstly, EW!!

    Also, Bonnie is one of the judges on SYTYCD Australia, and she is dumb as a bag of hammers.
    But she might still be a nice person. 🙂 No idea what anyone sees in Nigel.

  13. Mairead says:

    Piers Morgan 😯 😯 😯

    Oh dear God no! Editors of Rupert Murdoch-owned newspapers are horrible enough, but that fecker was the one of the nastiest of the lot!

  14. geronimo says:

    Writes a damn funny book tho, Mairead! He is a bit of an arse but he makes me laugh…my achilles heel. (Also, shamefully, Clarkson, who I loathe with a passion but same thing. 😳 )

    Can’t think of a single thing to say here about these two.

  15. RAN says:

    I actually like Piers for some reason – don’t ask me why because I don’t know… Could be because I sat through the entire season of Celebrity Apprentice and he was the only one I could tolerate. Add that to the fact that he called Amarosa out for being a non celebrity famewhore, he grew on me.

    Also have a crush on chef Gordon – another one of those ‘not sure I know why’ things, but I do.

  16. Mairead says:

    True, true and against my better judgement I do enjoy him on America’s Got Talent, and he can at least take a joke about himself.

    As for the Clarkson – don’t care, I think he’s great! And I bet he’s actually a closet environmentalist. I mean, he always does the opposite of what he says…
    *Hates American cars – bought the Ford GT440
    *Slags off Mercedes – used to drive an S-class.

    And he’s a fan of the donkey 😀

  17. Lola says:

    I always tell my male friends, your looks don’t matter, money and power are the biggest turn on for most women. Even rich women find an ugly successful man a turn on. I won’t deny, I have found myself fancing an odd guy or two because of their power. Well not as odd looking as Clarkson, but odd nevertheless.

  18. KERRI says:

    Is Chef Gordon the chef from Hell’s Kitchen?

    Who’s Clarkson? Is he a singer?

    Duh!! where have I been??

    Oh yeah, I remember, swimming in Pier’s dreamy blue eyes, sigh!!

  19. Mairead says:

    Yes Chef Gordon is Gordon Ramsay.

    Clarkson is Jeremy “Jezza” Clarkson off Top Gear. He presents it with with James May (a.k.a. Captain Slow) and Richard Hammond (a.k.a Hamster/ Captain Teeth/ Shirt! – depending on series or state of teeth)

    It’ll probably be shown soon enough on BBC America or go onto the Top Gear website (or the BBC version) oand look for some of the team challenges – Caravan Conkers remains a firm favourite of mine. Along with Caravan Darts.

    Or some of their epic races – the Bugatti Veyron vs. James’s plane or the Arctic Challenge, or my personal favourite – the African Challenge.

    (Mind you – the Southern States of America Challenge was the most terrifying of all – Writing Vote Hillary on your car can get you killed 😯 )

  20. KERRI says:

    Thanks Mairead.
    I love everything British. Love to read British Historical fiction, and 19th Century non-fiction.

    Years ago there was a TV channel (Life?) with ALL British actors in short stories. Even Catherine-Zeta-Jones, Colin Firth and Clive Owen started their careers in these made-for-TV movies. Too bad they’ve been replaced by ❗ ❓ I don’t know, don’t tune into that channel anymore.

    IT WOULD NOT B THE FIRST TIME PRISCILLA P IS ON n adulterous relationship. Just remember her romance to married Hawaiian former karate professor Mike Stone. So she wanted Elvis to b faithfull in heart and body to her . Well, she cann´t be blamed because something she learned from the king is to be a cheating heart. Strangely she fell in love for a 59 years-old man because Priscilla ´s numbers are the one who are 20 years her junior.
