CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: Lisa Marie Presley's alleged half-sister came forward years before the woman, who was thought to be Elvis Presley's lone child, died on January 12, according to sources. Deborah Presley Brando declared in 2018 that Elvis was her father. She said that her mother Barbara met with the King of Rock & Roll before he rose to fame, RadarOnline.com reports.

Deborah claimed that she experienced flashbacks about Elvis over time and she had memories of him. “When I was 13, the man who raised me was driving me to school one day — he was very violent — and he said something like, 'You don’t know who you daddy is? He’s a half-breed singer.' I thought 'What does that even mean?' Years later, I was lying in bed with my boyfriend, and he knew I was really upset about it. I kept hitting brick walls. He said, 'Your mother knew [Elvis] before he was famous. That’s it!'"

Deborah claimed that over the years Elvis wrote letters to her mother asking her to stay in touch. When she was 16 years old, she claimed to have received proof that Elvis was her father. She recalled hearing the radio announce "The King is dead!" as she watched her mother pull out of the driveway. When she exited the vehicle, she held her mother and shouted, "'Mama, can you tell me now? He’s dead'. And I remember — I’ll never forget as long as I live — she put her hands on me, and she looked straight in my eyes, and she said, 'It’s true, he’s your father, and I want you to promise me one thing — that you will never do anything to bring any shame to his name.' And I said, 'I promise'".

Deborah said that she legally adopted the last name, Presley. Deborah responded when asked why she thought Lisa Marie claimed that she was the sole child, “Because they want to exclude me. They stopped saying it for a while because I had made a problem — and they instead said, 'Elvis and Priscilla’s only daughter.'"

When asked what she would say to Lisa Marie if she met her, Deborah responded, “Let’s go to South City and record music together. You’ll get out of debt, and I’ll be fine.” Last week, Deborah was spotted in front of the hospital where Lisa Marie died. She spoke with reporters and stated, “She's been pushed a lot the past five days, and there are schedules and commitments that don't have anything to do with the reality of family... This is a living example.”

Deborah admitted that after seeing Lisa Marie's performance at the Golden Globes, she was worried. She stated “I saw people propping her up. I saw people holding her.” She added, “I wish she had not have committed to anything she didn't want to do.”
