Elvis Presley and Linda Thompson

Elvis Presley and Linda Thompson

Main Details






Linda was a beauty queen who caught Elvis' eye on July 6, 1972. They lived together for 4 1/2 years. Besides his ex-wife Priscilla, Linda was the most significant woman in Elvis' life. The first couple years of their relationship was filled with love and happiness. However, Elvis became increasingly addicted to drugs and Linda could no longer take it. Linda claims to have saved Elvis' life many times, and insists that she left him because she didn't want to see him die. Eight months after they broke up, Elvis died from overdosing on prescription pills.

From July 1972 to November 1976, Thompson had a relationship with the recently separated Elvis Presley. (This relationship was portrayed in the 1981 television movie Elvis and the Beauty Queen, with Stephanie Zimbalist as Thompson and Don Johnson as Elvis.)
