Elvis: How King defused Lisa Marie’s childhood tantrum at Graceland – ‘She was really mad’

Before his untimely death in 1977, Elvis Presley’s only child Lisa Marie lived with him at Graceland when she wasn’t with her mother Priscilla in Los Angeles. The King’s daughter has previously shared how she was a “terror” when running amock around the Memphis mansion. And now her cousin Danny Smith, who was her playmate at Graceland, has shared a time she threw a tantrum at Elvis when not getting her own way.

Speaking on his Memphis Mafia Kid YouTube channel, Danny was asked if Lisa Marie was ever upset or mad with Elvis.

He remembered: “I know one time. I wouldn’t say mad more than hurt. One time we were out at Graceland and, of course, we was doing our normal, just being wild all over. And they the grown-ups had got to talking to Elvis about going up in the Lisa Marie and flying around. And Lisa wanted us to go and she wanted us all to go. Of course, it was basically an adult trip, so we wouldn’t go.”
