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."
