However, his ex-wife Priscilla and daughter/heir Lisa Marie are both now Scientologists and relentlessly promote the group.
Priscilla Presley seemed to disregard history when she recently discussed her ex-husband, insinuating that he had no experience with Scientology, reports MSNBC.
But Elvis did have extensive exposure to the organization and concluded, “These [Scientologists] want to control your mind, I think, so I’d never be interested in anything like that,” according to the book “Child Bride: The Untold Story of Priscilla Beaulieu Presley” by Suzanne Finstad. The King is also quoted to have said, “They’re just after my money and my name.”
In a strange twist it seems that Scientology eventually got both the Presley name and at least some of Elvis’ money, well that is posthumously.
And what would Elvis say if he could see what is happening now? One old friend quoted within the book “Elvis Aaron Presley: Revelations From the Memphis Mafia” says that he would “shit a brick.”
