Elvis and Priscilla Presley's Age Difference Isn't So Scandalous on the Surface

  • Popsugar
For their entire relationship (and beyond), Elvis and Priscilla Presley were the subject of intense gossip and speculation about their relationship. Their age gap has been one of the biggest focal points for scandal and gossip. Although they did have a fairly significant difference between their ages, that's really not the most controversial element to their relationship.

The age gap between Elvis and Priscilla is just a few months over 10 years. Elvis was born in January 1935, while Priscilla was born in 1945. That difference in ages, while not exactly small, is not the huge gap that some might imagine. By rock-star older husband/younger wife standards, it's not big at all! But, as with all things in Elvis's life, there's more to the story than that, and the reality isn't exactly a romantic fairy tale.

It's not the age gap itself that caused such a scandal when the couple first met,

Tony Sokol Aug 20, 2019

The King of Rock and Roll has a double life as Elvis Presley gets animated as Agent King on upcoming Netflix series.

Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, earned a black belt in Karate, indulged "Suspicious Minds," and got special agent status from President Nixon. Priscilla Presley will put all these together in the upcoming Agent King, an adult animated comedy series which will run on Netflix, according to Variety.

The series also merges concepts behind both Marvel and DC legends, and the mythology of The Gong Show's Chuck Barris, who may or may not have been an assassin for the CIA, according to the book and movie Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. In Agent King, Elvis will shake his pelvis during working hours but will transform into an undercover agent who keeps America safe.

If You're Wondering How Elvis and Priscilla Presley Met, Their Story Is Pretty Shocking

  • Popsugar
It's easy to think of Elvis and Priscilla Presley as one of the biggest love stories in music history, but the truth is a lot more complicated that that - especially when it comes to how they met. According to most biographies of Elvis's life, the pair first met at a party during Elvis's time in the army, when he was 24. That wouldn't be scandalous at all, if it weren't for the fact that Priscilla was only 14 at the time.

Priscilla's stepfather, Paul Beaulieu, was an Air Force officer, and they were stationed in Germany in the late 1950s. It was because of Beaulieu's military job that their family interacted frequently with the soldiers on the base, and that's how Elvis and Priscilla initially met in September 1959. It was instant attraction for Elvis, despite the 10-year age gap and the fact that Priscilla was barely high school aged.

Initially, Priscilla's
