Priscilla Presley’s request to be buried next to Elvis Presley was reportedly denied during negotiation negotiations for the trust of her late daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.
The 77-year-old businesswoman wanted to be buried at Graceland, the estate of the late rock icon in Memphis, Tenn., but was shot without much backlash, sources told TMZ on Thursday.
Apart from Elvis, several other members of the Presley family also find their final resting place on the grounds of the legendary mansion.
Lisa Marie, who died on January 12 after suffering a heart attack, was buried here next to her beloved son Benjamin Keough.
The late “Rod & Barry” actor died by suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27.
His paternal grandparents, Vernon and Gladys Presley, were also buried in the garden of King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s former estate.
Priscilla’s representatives, who were married to Elvis from 1967 to 1973, did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment or confirmation regarding the funeral allegations.
Regardless, Elvis Presley Enterprises was happy with the settlement agreement it signed on Lisa Marie’s trust, as it was reportedly given “millions”.
“My family has resolved all the confusion regarding our appeal and document interpretation request to the court after the untimely death of my daughter, Lisa Marie,” Priscilla told Page Six earlier this week.

In part, he continued, “We are happy that we as a family solved this together. My family and I hope everyone will give us the privacy we need to properly mourn Lisa Marie’s passing and spend some personal time together.
“We love and appreciate you all, and the Presley family is stronger than ever.”
Her eldest daughter, Riley Keough, who is the sole living beneficiary of Lisa Marie’s mother’s trust, was also “very pleased” with the deal, her lawyer said on Tuesday.
Riley’s lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Page Six’s funeral request report.
The “Daisy Jones & The Six” star had been battling her grandmother in court for months.
Priscilla contested Lisa Marie’s will in January, claiming that the “alleged change made in 2016” that dismissed her and business manager Barry Siegel as trustees was illegitimate because of a dubious signature.
Following this week’s settlement agreement, Riley remains the official beneficiary of her late mother’s trust.
A judge has requested that the agreement and motion be submitted by 12 June. The next hearing in the case will be held on August 4.
