Priscilla Presley SLAMS Bam Margera as she shoots down his claims that she gifted him Elvis Presley’s ring and robe in blistering statement
Priscilla Presley has denied Bam Margera’s claims she gifted him personal items once belonging to her late ex-husband Elvis Presley in a blistering statement.
After Margera, 43, claimed to have received Elvis’ robe and ring from his ex, 77, during a recent get-together, Priscilla issued a statement shooting down his claims to TMZ.
Presley insists the ring Bam claimed to have been gifted actually belonged to him, and the robe was not one of Elvis’.
She also said she and her son Navarone Garcia, a friend of Margera, want no further communication with him.
Priscilla claims her son Navarone invited Bam over for a visit, but she was unaware of who his friend was ‘or that later he would choose to post photos and false stories.’

According to Priscilla, Bam ‘came over, talked non-stop about his new ventures and personal struggles and asked for a photo with me for his father, who is a big fan.’
‘Unbeknownst to us at the time, Bam chose to circulate those photos accompanied by false information and storytelling. After what Bam has chosen to do, my son and I want no further communication with him. I consider him a dishonest and unstable individual. I had no idea who he was or that he was filming in my home without my consent.’
When denying she had given Bam items once belonging to the King Of Rock ‘N’ Roll, Priscilla insisted she would never ‘disrespect’ the ‘love of my life’ by relinquishing his items.
‘At no time during the visit did I give him anything of Elvis’. I still have everything he ever touched. I would never disrespect Elvis who was the love of my life by giving away anything that belonged to him. I have always protected them for the fans. Elvis belonged to all of you and I cherish my life with him too much to ever squander anything,’ she said.
Bam’s struggles with sobriety have been well-documented, and Prisiclla said she hopes he ‘gets the help he needs and does what is right.’
According to TMZ, Bam gave the robe to his father and the ring to Yelawolf, a rapper Bam believes to be the new king of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Bam posted snaps from the outing get-together last week, less than a month after the death of Priscilla’s daughter Lisa Marie.
In a selfie from the gathering, uploaded to Margera’s Instagram, Priscilla posed next to her son Navarone Garcia’s friend as they sat side-by-side on a grey studded booth.
A second image showed the former spouse of the late King of Rock ’n’ Roll seemingly showing her photos of his five-year-old daughter, Phoenix Wolf Margera.

During their meal together, Priscilla wore a white jacket with a silver zipper and minimal makeup.
Margera wore his hood over his head, a blue t-shirt and a gold key around his neck.
Margera also uploaded two snaps with Priscilla’s son Navarone on a fun night out last Monday.
According to TMZ, the star is ‘actually friends’ with Lisa Marie’s half-brother Navarone, 35, who recently opened up about getting clean from hard drugs and opioids in 2020.
Earlier this month, Steve-O heartbreakingly wrote on Instagram that he is ‘bracing’ for his Jacka** co-star’s death.
Margera, who has had a rollercoaster history of addiction, is currently opening for Steve-O on tour.
But an Instagram exchange between the two revealed the cracks in their relationship, with Steve-O accusing Margera of falling off the wagon and declaring: ‘You’re dying, brother, and it sucks that I can’t do anything to save you.’
The back and forth began when Margera posted a throwback snap of himself sandwiched between Steve-O and their Jacka** co-star Johnny Knoxville.

Knoxville has lately had a fractious relationship with Margera, who sued him for wrongful termination from the 2021 film Jacka** Forever but then dropped the case.
In the caption of his since-deleted Instagram throwback, Margera wrote: ‘One arm is a best friend who had my f***ing back all along, another arm is a poser. A pro creation thief. If Jeff tremaine was in this photo, he would be to greedy to fit.’
Jeff Tremaine, a producer and co-creator of the Jackass franchise, filed a restraining order against Margera in 2021 and accused him of harassment.
Margera wrote in his new caption: ‘F*** jeff. Remember I tattooed that on me long ago jeff? It’s because I knew who you were all along. @steveo much love and respect.’
Steve-O posted, then rapidly deleted, a lengthy comment revealing his heartrending response to his friend’s alleged behavior.
‘Bam, last night you had your five year old son with you on stage at my show, and you were blessed with the chance to spend another day or two with him – then as soon as you left my show, you stayed up all night getting loaded enough to think it was a good idea to post more vile nonsense like this,’ he began.
‘I hope you understand how awful that is. You say you want to have a relationship with your son, but your actions guarantee the exact opposite will happen.’
He shared: ‘I brought you on tour with me in hopes that I could get you to see what’s possible for you if you choose recovery. I’ve tried everything I can, but I can’t force you get honest and do the work of recovery.’

Crushingly, he concluded: ‘I wish you could know how much I’ve hated feeling braced for news of your death, but you’re making it clear that I have no other choice. You’re dying brother, and it sucks that I can’t do anything to save you.’
He deleted the comment but informed TMZ he still means what he wrote, adding that he remains open to helping Margera get sober if the latter gets serious about it.
Last June, he was located by authorities in Delray Beach after he was reported missing from a nearby rehab facility.
At the time, the manager of the rehab facility noted that the Viva La Bam star’s stay at the facility was ordered by a court, leading to police looking for him.
Margera was reportedly irked that he was not receiving ‘special treatment’ from staff at the facility, which led him to leave, an insider told the outlet.
Margera has long had a history of substance abuse issues, as he had to check into a hospital in 2019 to treat an edema apparently caused by excessive drinking.
More recently, he kicked off the latest Jacka** project for failing to abide by conditions set forth by the producers relating to his addiction issues.
They were reportedly worried about his addiction issues and erratic behavior – for which he has recently explained he suffers from manic bipolar disorder – but wanted him to be a part of the project.
In order to remain a part of Jacka** Forever, sources said the producers required Margera to sign a Wellness Agreement under which he would agree to continue taking his medication, regularly blow into a breathalyzer, stay sober, see a psychologist and take routine drug tests.
