Elvis’s Secret ‘Daughter’ Lisa Johansen Sues Presley Estate For $130m: What Dennis Hopper Knew

by | 2nd, December 2011

IS Lisa Johansen the daughter to Elvis Presley?

You can, of course, asks Elvis if it’s true. You only need to press “6” on the middle lift’s panel at the Harvey Nichols department store, Knightsbridge.

Or you can just put in a $130m claim against the Presley estate for  “alleged defamation and infliction of emotional distress“.

Johansen penned the 1998 memoir I, Lisa Marie: The True Story of Elvis Presley’s Real Daughter. In it, she claimed to be Priscilla Presley and Elvis’ daughter.

Only, Johansen refused to take a DNA test. Johansen’s  publisher sued her for a reasonable $50 million. But Johansen claims she took a test in London in 2010.

Also in her write filed at the Tennessee federal court, Johansen alleges that Lisa Marie Presley stole her identity to prevent her from getting her inheritance.

No word from Priscilla, but Anroak wodners if Elcvis did sire other childrenb? In the book Dennis Hopper, by Peter L Winkler, the actor reveals something of the young Presley’s brain power and sexual appetites:

Elvis Presley arrived in Hollywood nearly a year after Dean’s death to make his first film, Love Me Tender, and turned out to be obsessed with him, too. He sought out anyone with a connection to the dead actor, dating Wood and asking Hopper — who was no longer jealous of her lovers — for help.

When Presley told Hopper he had to fight another actor in his film, but felt he could take him, Hopper patiently explained that it was all faked. “He believed that movie fights were real, and that movie bullets were real, and when I explained that they weren’t, he couldn’t accept the fact that he had been deceived all these years by movies.”

Presley enjoyed the sexual opportunities available. “I went to see him in the Beverly Wilshire, and he had six women waiting for him, all who I knew and all who I knew didn’t fool around and all who were going in for a quickie. So he would take one in; another 20 minutes, another one would go out and in there. And I said, ‘How the hell do you do it, man?’ And he said, ‘Well, they all different, ain’t they?’”

Johansen’s claim is remarkable. But others who says Elvis is their dad may be all too plausible…
