Elvis Presley’s divorce papers up for auction – Priscilla also received half the income from their three homes located in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California.
The divorce settlement of one of rock-n-roll’s most famous couples will soon be a fan’s very expensive keepsake, reports People.com. The papers from August 15, 1972, are being described by auctioneers Henry and Andrew Aldridge as “a fabulous piece of show business history,” that will be made available in the United Kingdom on Saturday. “It contains fascinating details and offers the reader a snapshot into the details involved between both parties that only legal documents can give,” Henry Aldridge said.
“Unfortunate circumstances and unhappy differences have arisen between the parties by reason of which they have lived separate and apart since February 23, 1972, and by reason of which they intend to dissolve their marriage,” the document states. Elvis had to part with his famous 1971 Mercedes Benz, 1969 Cadillac Eldorado, a 1971 Harley Davidson motorcycle and $100,00 for the settlement.
Priscilla also received half the income from their three homes located in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California. A pre-sale estimate of the settlement is between $26,318 to $32,898. The last time the settlement documents came up for sale in 2011 they sold for just under $8,000.
