After separating from Priscilla, Elvis Presley’s next major relationship was with Miss Tennessee model Linda Thompson. The 37-year-old dated the 22-year-old from 1972-1976 and the couple lived together at Graceland. Now in a new Instagram post, Linda has shared some rare photos of her incredible time with The King.
The snaps include the iconic 1973 show Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite, while Linda teased “intimate” moments with the star and claimed to have been a real girlfriend rather just one of his flings.
The 71-year-old captioned her post: “Throwback Thursday…ELVIS ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA SATELLITE! The first ever satellite television show, also the first split screen – directed by Marty Pasetta.
“Someone recently posted this photo that I had never seen before of me in the audience sitting with Hawaii 5 O’s Jack Lord!
“Elvis and I were only 6 months into our 4 1/2 year romance. Yes, after the first year he began to have short lived ‘dalliances’ but they were never anything more than that.”
Linda then went on to clarify some truths surrounding her relationship with the star, who died at just 42 in 1977.
She wrote: “Facts: I always knew where his heart was. I was his only live in girlfriend for those years.
“We shared incredibly intimate times together including his hospital stays.
“I was at every Vegas engagement, every tour, every holiday, every important event of his during those years.”

Linda concluded: “That defines a real girlfriend – Not someone who has an occasional rendezvous.
“I am very confident of my place in his history. And those who know… Really know. I’m just sayin’.
