However, by the end of the evening he had managed to compose himself.Despite Priscilla's parents being angered by her late return home during that first meeting and insisting that she would never meet Elvis again, his eagerness for another meeting, and his promise never to bring her home late again, led them to relent.Accounts suggest that Priscilla threatened to take her story to the press if Elvis refused to marry her, and that her father threatened to have Elvis charged under the Mann Act; "taking a minor across state lines for sexual purposes".Accounts by Elvis' cook, Alberta, claim that he was so upset about the wedding that she caught him crying about it one day. I want to save it." Priscilla says in her autobiography that she was a virgin and she and Elvis did not have sex until their wedding night.
For Red, who had been with Elvis since the beginning of his rise to fame and had given Elvis the role of best man at his own wedding, this was enough of an insult that he decided to quit his job working for Elvis.When she asked why he didn't just cancel the wedding if it upset him so much, he replied "I don't have a choice." the singer told her that they had to wait until they were married before having intercourse. However, this claim is questioned by biographer Suzanne Finstad.Red West, especially, was furious about the situation.Despite her being 14 years old, she made a huge impression on Elvis with her much older appearance.Elvis allegedly regressed to acting like an "awkward, embarrassed" boy-next-door figure in front of her.She received fan mail from Elvis fans, some nice and some not so nice, as well as mail from "lonesome G. Convinced she would never see Elvis again, and with rumors of his ongoing relationship with Nancy Sinatra flying around the gossip magazines, Priscilla believed the romance was over.After Elvis's return to America, the couple stayed in contact over the phone, though they would not see each other again until the summer of 1962, when Priscilla's parents agreed to let her visit for two weeks.In her acting career, Presley starred with Leslie Nielsen in the three successful Naked Gun films, and played the role of Jenna Wade on the long-running television series Dallas.In 1948, her mother met a United States Air Force officer named Paul Beaulieu, from Quebec, Canada. Beaulieu took over the raising of Priscilla, and was the only father she would ever know (he died on January 4, 2018, as she announced on her social media accounts).She took his surname and over the next few years she grew up quickly, helping to care for the growing family as her stepfather's Air Force career moved them from Connecticut to New Mexico to Maine.In her own words, she described herself during this period as "a shy, pretty little girl unhappily accustomed to moving from base to base every two or three years".
