If you don’t already know everything about Priscilla Presley, get ready because Sofia Coppola’s new movie, Priscilla, is now in theaters. But increased interest in Presley’s fascinating life has been going on for a minute now—especially given her dramatic court dispute with granddaughter Riley Keough regarding her late ex-husband Elvis Presley’s estate.

Presley and Keough reached a settlement that made Keough the sole trustee of the estate and owner of Graceland in August, and on Monday, a judge gave final approval on the deals financial terms. Now that everything’s official, let’s look at Presley’s total net worth—which, much like Austin Butler’s Elvis voice, is impressive and long-lasting.

Priscilla and Elvis were married for six years. According to Celebrity Net Worth, when they divorced in October 1973, she received a one-time payment of $725,000. On top of that, Priscilla was granted spousal support, child support, 5 percent of Elvis’ royalties, and half the money from the sale of their house. For what it’s worth, Priscilla and Elvis remained close friends following the split.

Elvis and Me


On top of producing a ton of movies, Presley started a fragrance line, as well as a line of clothing and skincare products, in the late 1990s. Her perfumes seem to be available on Amazon—or at least available for resale.

She also sat on the Board of Directors of MGM and has several acting credits under her belt, including a long running stint on Dallas as Jenna Wade Krebbs. After five seasons, she left the show and went on to star in three Naked Gun movies.

In 1985, Presley published a best-selling book about her life with Elvis, aptly titled Elvis and Me, which serves as the basis for Coppola’s new movie. Priscilla is an executive producer of the film.

Elvis’ (Very Complicated) Estate

Presley’s net worth is slightly complicated following the untimely death of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, who inherited Elvis’ estate. The family went through some drama regarding an amendment to Lisa Marie’s will delegating ownership of Graceland and Elvis’ intellectual property rights, which The Hollywood Reporter noted “may generate future revenue for her heirs in the form of postmortem book deals and movies.”

Priscilla’s grandchildren—Keough and her half-sisters, Harper and Finley Lockwood—inherited Graceland from their mother following her death in January. But later that month, Presley filed a petition to challenge her daughter’s will. The situation was reportedly very messy, but the good news? In May 2023, Presley and Keough reached a settlement, and a source told Us Weekly that “Riley and Priscilla are at peace in their relationship after the very stressful ordeal over Lisa Marie’s trust and estate.” Keough confirmed as much in an interview with Vanity Fair published in August.

So what did said settlement consist of? Thanks to the final court proceedings in late October, we now know Presley received a payment of $1 million, plus an additional sum of up to $400,000 to cover her legal fees. On top of that, she was retained as a “special adviser” to the Promenade Trust and will be paid $100,000 annually. Oh, and Presley secured herself a Graceland burial, nearby her ex, daughter, and late grandson Benjamin Keough.

In June, Presley shared a photo of her grandchildren on Instagram, making it clear they’re on good terms:

Priscilla’s Personal Real Estate

Presley reportedly sold her parents’ home for $3.6 million in 2019 and, just one year later, sold her Beverly Hills home for $13 million. She still calls Los Angeles home though. She bought and moved into a $4.8 million penthouse in Century City.

What Is Priscilla Presley’s Total Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Priscilla Presley has a total net worth of $50 million as of May 2023. That, of course, doesn’t account for the recent settlement, but she’s doing just fine. And—depending on what kind of deal she cut with Coppola over the rights to her life story—that number could definitely increase.
