Man Claims Elvis Is His Dad

A Michigan man has hired an Alabama attorney to help him prove he is the illegitimate son of Elvis Presley, a Tennessee newspaper reported Thursday. Get ready, because geography isn't the only confusing element in this story. It started in Jackson, Tenn., where Tim Farrell said his mother admitted on her deathbed that she had sex on a beach with Elvis in 1954 and, indeed, he was the son of the King, the Sun said. Farrell, 49, and now a resident of Jackson, Mich., told the newspaper all he wants is the Presley estate to agree to a DNA test. His half-sister, Regina Holland of Rogersville, Ala., is convinced her mother was telling the truth is leading the charge, the Sun said. "I know my mother didn't lie," she said. Farrell has hired Steve Baccus, a Tuscumbia, Ala., attorney who said he agreed to take the case because, "I thought this guy was in need of some help." Baccus said Farrell and Holland are not after any money or any portion of Lisa Marie Presley's estate. "They just want to know the truth, that's all," he said. A spokesman for Elvis Presley Enterprises, which handles the estate, said no one had any comment on the claim or the DNA request "at this point."

It is my understanding that there is a clause in Elvis' will that makes provisions for any children proven to be his. Did Elvis do much travelling back in 1954? Did any of his very early concerts (and in '54 they would be very early!) take place in any coastal towns/cities??

I do not understand your comment, Fred, what do you mean Elvis is this guy's UNCLE? Does that mean this lady from 1956 had a child to one of the Stanley brothers? I don't recall Elvis having another brother unless Jesse is still alive. hmmm. Please tell me what you mean. Thanks in advance!

To Vincent and other doubters, did you read the comment below by king1977 who relates the story in the book "Careless Love" of the woman who aborted Elvis's baby? Is she lying, too? I would think she was a legitimate "source" since the author is a respected one who wrote "Last Train to Memphis." One more thing: if you think women in love with Elvis cared about money you don't know women.

You're right ep1tcb, American's love fiction and that's why they believe this too ;-)

ok let me get this straight.... sex on the beach with Elvis, kept quite, had a son by Elvis, kept quite. And it took 49 yrs to come out in the open. Somethings not right here. Bet I can figure it out. Can you?

Thank you very much, Scotch, for so much tolerance... :-(

ep1tcb: you obviously do not realize that the "I saw Elvis at the Burger King" sightings are not news stories, but just a joke non-funny comedians tell. There are two things I cannot stand, those who are intolerant of other cultures, and the Dutch.

So he does not want any money from the estate. Excuse me but if it were proved to be true, this guy and his lawyer would be after all that they can get. Where there is a chance of a great load of $$$$$ flashing in front of the guy and especially his lawyer they'll be right in there with a claim.

Wow!!! Sex on the beach with Elvis!! Sounds good to me!! (Whoops! Did I say that??!) *LOL* It wouldn't surprise me if Elvis fathered more children than just Lisa Marie. He was only human after all, & temptation was so very there for him most of his life. I'm sure if he knew(for sure) he had fathered any children, he would've done the right thing & made sure they were provided for. I'd sure like to see a picture of this guy from Michigan~~~~& his mother.

Check your copy of "Careless Love." Joyce Bova admitted she had an abortion of her child with Elvis when she learned he thought women with children weren't attractive. I don't doubt at all that there is at least one illigitamate child out there. I would guess it's probably illegal for EPE to not give DNA if he takes it to court. This case is one I'd say to give a try, as they can't lose anything, since he doesn't want any of the estate. We'll wait and see about this one.

Why is it so hard to believe Elvis may have fathered other children? In fact, Dolores Fuller, his songwriter, once said on TV that she wouldn't be at all surprised if he did. The show she was on "ET," was doing a story on the man from Vegas (which I have on tape) who said his mother was in "Clambake" with Elvis which is when he was conceived. I wonder how it's even "legal" for EPE to deny the DNA. Actually, I thought the DNA of E's liver "was" available...didn't Bill Beeney and TV8 in Cleveland get it?? Carol K.

Like American people sometimes look strange at people from Holland. Like in the saying 'Double Dutch' , we people from Holland often do the same at Americans. What i'm trying to say is: American people are always good for A story. And i mean A story... How many times did American people claim to see Elvis in a Hamburger restaurant or just walking down the street. Now... that's exactly what i mean. Americans are always good for A story. And that all i have to say about THIS story.Chris from Holland
