About once a year since way back in the 1980s, a tabloid somewhere in the world invents a story that Lisa Presley is closing, moving into, or selling Graceland. Then, EPE gets calls, letters and, nowadays, E-mails asking if it's true. Well, here we go again with a now-annual article saying no, of course, it is not true. The latest in the succession of "Graceland is closing" stories is in a recent issue of the National Examiner. It indicates that Lisa is closing Graceland so she and husband Nicolas Cage can move in. No truth to this story.
Read the reaction from EPE:
So, bear with us as we say this one more time, for the umpteenth time: If Graceland were closing or being sold, we would issue a press release, we would post an article in News on our site, there would be major legitimate media coverage. But, closing or selling Graceland has not been considered and there is no reason to think it ever would be considered.
These days, there is such a blur between tabloids and so-called legitimate media that it has become hard to tell one from the other. So, we completely understand why some of Elvis' public would want to contact us at Graceland just to be sure the story isn't true. We thank you very much for your concern and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you and countless future generations to Graceland.
