Born on March 1, 1987 in Santa Monica, California, USA, Navarone Anthony Garibaldi is a musician, but also known as the son of actress Priscilla Presley, who was once married to legendary singer Elvis Presley. He is the son of her marriage to Marco Garibaldi many years after her divorce from Elvis.
As of early 2020, Navarone Garibaldi’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million earned through a successful career in music, fronting the band Them Guns.
He also likely benefited from his mother’s success, with Priscilla having an estimated net worth of over $50 million, with a large amount from her acting and business endeavours, as well as a presumably large amount from her divorce settlement with Elvis.
Life and career
Navarone grew up in Santa Monica, and for the most part, his parents put a lot of effort into keeping them away from the media. This was due to his mother’s storied history with Elvis Presley, which often led to much scrutiny. He grew up alongside a half-sister Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis’ only child.
He developed a love for music at a young age, and would later pursue it as he grew older.
He helped form the Los Angeles-based rock band called Those guns in which he is the frontman and guitarist – other members of the band include Chuck Holiday, Kyle Hamood, Bobby Vega and Kyle Hamood. Their music is often described as rock with a mix of ska, funk, psychedelic rock and alternative. The band has held concerts at various venues in California, including The Troubadour in West Hollywood and The Viper Room. They also had a private show in the UK at The Kings Head Club, marking the first time the club had hosted a live band at their venue.
Mother – Priscilla Presley
Priscilla is of English and Scots-Irish descent, and her grandfather moved to the US, causing the family to settle there. Her father was a pilot in the United States Navy, although she never got to know him as he died in a plane crash when she was only six months old. Her mother later remarried to a United States Air Force officer.
In the following years, her family moved frequently due to her stepfather’s military life, which she was not very happy about, and the lack of a permanent home eventually made her a shy person. She thought the family would settle in Del Valle, Texas in 1956, but another transfer led them to live in Germany, where they rented a house that had been built before World War I.
They soon realized it was a brothel, but they had no choice as they ran out of money to rent. It was during this time in Germany that she would meet Elvis Presley, although she was only 14 at the time.
Living with Elvis – Priscilla Presley
Despite her parents’ insistence to stay away from Elvis, the two remained close and were often together until he left West Germany. After he left, she was soon hounded by media outlets, receiving letters from Elvis’ fans telling her to stay away. Even with the long distance, the two kept in touch and Elvis eventually paid for her to travel to the US.
After a few more visits, she was allowed to live “with” Elvis for good, and Elvis would help her attend school while she lived with Elvis’ father in a separate house. Her parents agreed if Elvis promised they would get married, to which he agreed. As the years went by, rumors of Elvis circulating that he had Affairs with many of the co-stars he worked with.
At the time, he was just happy to live with Priscilla, but in the end, he was put under pressure by getting his future in-laws, his recording managers and agents married, because not getting married would cause him a lot of trouble. They married in 1967 at a highly publicized event and she soon discovered she was pregnant with daughter Lisa Marie.
Over the years, they had an on-again, off-again relationship.
Divorce and Life After – Priscilla Presley
After being convinced by Elvis to take karate lessons, Priscilla began an affair with instructor Mike Stone. Elvis became aware that something was up and their relationship went into a tailspin, leading to separation in 1972 and divorce the following year. They shared custody of their child, while she received a large settlement from Elvis’ fortune. After their split, she focused on business endeavors and started teaming up with friend Olivia Bis.
After Elvis died in 1977, she became the executor of his estate’s heir, their child. Since Graceland was so expensive to maintain, she enlisted the help of a friend to turn Elvis’ house into a attraction. This also helped her earn more money as she became the president of Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE). Aside from her business endeavors, her popularity also led her to acting. Some of her most notable projects include “The Naked Gun”, “Touched by an Angel” and “Spin City” movie series. She also does a lot of philanthropic work and is an ambassador for the Dream Foundation.
It is unknown whether Navarone is in a relationship or married as he does not talk about his romantic endeavours. His parents stayed together for 22 years, but eventually separated. His father is a writer and programmer, although he never wrote a book about her life at his mother’s request. Besides music, Navarone is fascinated with reptiles and owns a collection home – he owns water monitor lizards found in various parts of Asia, one of the largest lizards in the world. It also owns many reticulated pythons, which are known for their longest length among snakes and also among the heaviest snakes.
