Elvis Presley's ex-wife Priscilla is desperate to get back all of the singer's prized possessions. The 72-year-old, who reportedly gave away Elvis' jewelry to ex-lovers now wants it back as her daughter, Lisa Marie is bankrupt. According to a new report, Priscilla gave away her late husband's diamonds, jewels and other invaluable items to her lovers. 

According to Radar Online, Priscilla has been in touch with her past lovers and has been asking them to return items that once belonged to him. An insider said, "Over the years, Priscilla gifted some of her exes with expensive items that either belonged to Elvis or that he'd given to her. Now, she’s been contacting them to ask for them back."

Among the items that she reportedly gave included a gold ring accented with pink coral roses. Although the estimated worth of this piece of jewelry is not known, it is believed to be worth thousands of dollars and holds a special place in Priscilla's life. A source added that Elvis gifted this on their vacation to Hawaii. 

On the outset, it may seem like Priscilla is trying to gain repossession of Elvis' belongings. However, insiders believe that Priscilla's desperate attempt was spurred by her daughter, Lisa Marie's bankruptcy. So far, Elvis's ex-wife has been able to get her hands on his pistol. A source to the Presley family told Radar Online that Elvis used to shoot TVs with the firearm whenever he had bouts of anger.

Regaining Elvis' items could indeed help Lisa Marie, who declared bankruptcy and claimed she lives in a poorhouse. Court documents obtained by the outlet reveal that Lisa Marie has only $14,000 in cash in bank. Nevertheless, she owes $500,000 in credit card debt. A few months ago, Lisa Marie filed a lawsuit against former manager Barry Siegel for swindling her of her fortune. In her lawsuit, she claimed that Seigel's mismanagement left her in debt. However, Seigel's management claimed Lisa Marie's financial status was a result of her reckless lifestyle.

It's not clear if Priscilla's ex-lovers are ready to return Elvis' possessions but one ex is reportedly ready to return the singer's belongings. An insider said, "One of Priscilla’s exes is open to returning items if Lisa Marie really needs the money. But some things were given away voluntarily. That’s why some lovers don’t feel they need to give them back!"
