The ‘Jackass’ actor, however, seems to insist that the robe and ring did once belong to Elvis Presley after Priscilla calls him ‘a dishonest and unstable individual.’
AceShowbiz –Bam Margera and Priscilla Presley‘s unlikely friendship has apparently ended sooner than expected. The two public figures recently seemed to bond over their respective difficult times, but it has turned sour following Bam’s wild claims about Elvis Presley memorabilia.
Following their meeting last week, Bam told TMZ that Priscilla gave him two of her late father’s personal possessions, a robe and a ring. He even claimed that he gifted the robe to his dad, who is a big Elvis fan, and the ring to Yelawolf, whom Bam considers the new King of Rock and Roll.
Priscilla, however, quickly disputed the claims, saying that she never gave Bam any of Elvis’ possessions and slammed him for posting photos of their meeting. In a statement to the site, the actress said she met the skateboarder after her son Navarone Garibaldi asked her to have a “new friend” come over for a visit, but she had no idea it was Bam “or that later he would choose to post photos and false stories.”
According to the 77-year-old, Bam “came over, talked non-stop about his new ventures and personal struggles and asked for a photo with me for his father, who is a big fan.” She continued, “Unbeknownst to us at the time, Bam chose to circulate those photos accompanied by false information and storytelling.”
Priscilla declared that she and her son have cut ties with “dishonest and unstable” Bam following his false stories. “After what Bam has chosen to do, my son and I want no further communication with him. I consider him a dishonest and unstable individual. I had no idea who he was or that he was filming in my home without my consent,” so she stated.
She further stressed, “At no time during the visit did I give him anything of Elvis’. I still have everything he ever touched. I would never disrespect Elvis who was the love of my life by giving away anything that belonged to him. I have always protected them for the fans. Elvis belonged to all of you and I cherish my life with him too much to ever squander anything.”
Priscilla also hopes that Bam, who is falling off the wagon in his sobriety battle, “gets the help he needs and does what is right.”
Bam later apologized to Priscilla and Navarone for his behavior, though he insisted that the robe and ring did once belong to Elvis. He said that Navarone, not Priscilla, was the one who gave him the memorabilia. “Navarone gave me a robe and ring that I gave Phil to be a part of Phil’s Elvis stuff,” the “Jackass” star told TMZ.
He also hinted that his friendship with Navarone remains strong despite Prisiclla’s statement, saying, “I’m making Navarone a $10,000 Heartagram necklace because I love his band … with hopes to record and tour.”
