Is Elvis's daughter Lisa Marie leaving U.S. for England?
Despite his huge following on this side of the Atlantic, Elvis never found the time to visit England.
His daughter, by contrast, has become so enamoured with the UK that she is said to be looking to move her family over here.
Reports say Lisa Marie Presley is turning her back on her homeland, putting her two California homes up for sale and telling friends she hopes to resettle by the end of the year.
The 42-year-old is said to have become sick of Los Angeles.
According to the National Enquirer magazine, the last straw was the revival last week of gossip claiming her ex-husband Michael Jackson was gay.
Jackson’s long-time friend Dr Arnold Klein made the allegation after the late singer’s office manager Jason Pfeiffer went on TV in the US to claim he had a fling with his famous former boss.
She and fourth husband Michael Lockwood, 49, are said to be looking to buy a stately home near London.
'During an extended stay there last year she made friends with the likes of Prince Andrew and Fergie, the Duchess of York, and she's excited about recording her first album since 2005 over there,' a source told the Enquirer.
The singer has made no secret of her disdain for L.A., saying last year: 'The city has really gotten dramatically worse in the last five or six years, even more shallow if that’s even possible.
'I feel any place that is perpetually sunny suspect and wrong, anyway.
She added: 'I can honestly say that I am the only person who came to England for the weather.
'I love the cold and the rain. We have fallen in love with the UK and it is our hope to live here some day.'
Raving about England during her trip last autumn, she added: ‘We have found the quality of life so much more enriching and fulfilling.
'The civility, the culture, the people and its beauty have reawakened me and have smoothed out some of my bleak and jagged views about people and life.’
But it is reported her plans have ignited a family feud with mother Priscilla, 64, who is said to be upset that she will not see as much of her granddaughters.
Lisa Marie was at her mother’s side at the celebrations for what would have been her father’s 75th birthday at Graceland in January and at the Elvis Cirque du Soleil Viva show in Las Vegas in February.
'She’ll keep her getaway place in Hawaii and return periodically for Graceland business, but she plans on spending most of her time in Britain,’ the source told the Enquirer.
