True, Priscilla Beaulieu was a mere child [14-year-old] when she was introduced to the 24-year-old rock god [Elvis Presley], then doing his military service in Germany. [...] According to his friend Lamar Fike: "In Germany Elvis was fascinated with the idea of real young teenage girls, which scared the crap out of all of us." There was at least one affair with a 15-year-old, and a 23-year-old he met was deemed "too old". [...] While filming GI Blues he became obsessed with the 14-year-old daughter of the owner of a nightclub-restaurant. Sandy Ferra was better protected than Priscilla - her mother accompanied them on every date. [...] Just before his 40th birthday he started seeing a 14-year-old girl called Reeca Smith, whom he called his L'il Lioness. She insists he "didn't take advantage of me", but she broke off the relationship after a few months because she was upset by his increasing weight and deteriorating health.
