Elvis Presley may have a half-sister. According to reports his father had a love child, born to Florence Juanita Sharp, who then gave her daughter up for adoption to a Texas family. The woman, who goes by the name of Eliza Alice Presley (likely to be an assumed name, I doubt her adopted parents named her after her sire) is hoping for a financial settlement from Elvis’ fathers’ estate.
Her representative, Donald Yates, reveals DNA tests carried out in Arizona match the genetic make-up of Elvis’ cousin Donna.
He tells America’s Globe, “I’m 99.99 per cent sure that Eliza Presley and Elvis Aaron Presley are half siblings.”
As well as the scientific proof, Yates reveals his client has “sworn testimony from family members… relating to who her biological father is.”
Eliza Alice Presley has filed papers in Memphis, Tennessee, claiming she’s entitled to be “recognised as his daughter and allowed to inherit her statutory share of his estate”
I’m disgusted by this. Ms Presley makes no appeal to meet her family (she is a half-aunt to Elvis’ children, a sister-in-law to Priscilla) and has never met her brother. Wouldn’t she like to meet his family and get to know more about her late brother? Nope, she’d just like the cash please.
I’m not sure how much she would be entitled to, but I’m guessing it won’t be much. If she gets anything at all it will be more than she deserves. I’m not sure how much Vernon Presley has left, but I’m guessing she’s hoping for a cut of the Elvis estate.
According to Wikipedia, Vernon Presley was a ‘malingerer’, and the family lived just above the poverty line.
In an unrelated Elvis story, hackers have created an ePassport for him and passed through airport security with it, despite the fact that the passport was for an American, but was in a European cover.
