Priscilla Presley is still alive and living in California. Her daughter Lisa Marie died in January 2023 as a result of complications with a gastrointestinal blockage. Lisa Marie apparently emailed Sofia Coppola a series of letters about the A24 film based on Priscilla’s biography, Elvis and Me, before her untimely demise. Priscilla is also a producer on the film.

“My father only comes across as a predator and manipulative,” Lisa Marie wrote in the mail. “As his daughter, I don’t see anything in this figure that reminds me of my father. I don’t read this to get my mother’s perspective on my father. I read this and saw your terribly vengeful and dismissive perspective, and I’m not sure why.”
