I highly doubt that he was aware that she understood this or if he was aware that this might harm her and psychologically scare her like it did, simply because no loving parent would do that to their child!!!

I think he hid his condition from Lisa as much as he could but was not that aware of himself no.

Elvis couldnt take care of himself by the time Lisa would have had any memories of the sort were talking about.How could he have cared for a child in that condition?

OMGosh, for one thing look at the pictures. Some she looks sad, but her folks were divorced. She had many many happy times and she even says so. How many children haven't seen a Playboy? How many kids haven't seen a sick parent? Lots of them grow up with a sick parent. I do not believe Lisa saw that Elvis was drugged out. She just thought daddy was not feeling well. And as for the women and affair, there was no big parties when Lisa was around. Remember for the better part of the time before Elvis died Linda was there. Linda was very protective of Lisa. She makes it sound much worse than it was. I have to wonder what her mother told her and put in her brain. I'm not saying some of the men weren't cheating on their wives but no way that she saw evidence or if she saw something she would have known at that age. I'm sorry but I just feel this is her way of getting at people she is ticked off at. Who knows, maybe secretly she is still mad at Elvis. What she also fails to tell people is how many people around her father loved her so very much! Why the heck when Elvis died did she all Linda first??? Because Linda was her guardian angel in many ways. And by the time Ginger came along, the party was over. Have the guys were gone. Linda moved in in Oct. of 1972. So Lisa was a mere 5 years old. Do the math......

Children are more aware than we give them credit for. I certainly was. I found my Mom's boyfriend's porn when I was 5 or 6. ANd I always knew something nasty was going on behind that locked door or it wouldn't be locked. In those days, that was just life. Children were not as shielded from things as they are now.

I believe Lisa at that time knew something maybe was wrong,but was not sure what..
Elvis didn't want Yisa seeing him having hard times,and I don't blame him..
But don't shoot me or anything.lol.But I don't find that environment bad...I mean sure at times she might have seen something or another,but for the most part,Elvis did an amazing job protecting Lisa...

yep couldn't agree more. I could you tell you horror stories l remember at 3 and and up, yeah it may be foggy but l still remember it and nope my mother didn't put in my head either.

Lisa also remembers her dad coming in her room and her catching him and she also remembers her dad taking all those pills and worrying about him when his weight went up, she is a smart girl, but regardles she loves her father and doesn't hold anything against him.

Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis
That's where my family's buried and gone
Last time I was there I noticed a space left
Next to them there in Memphis In the **** back lawn

-Lights Out

"Three wishes: If I had three wishes, I would wish I could drive a Volkswagen, I wish I had a hundred Astropops, I wish my mother and father don't die" -Lisa Marie Presley as a child

At the age of 5, the first bomb dropped on Lisa Marie's life- Elvis and Priscilla divorced. Lisa Marie was whisked away to live in Los Angeles, although she frequently visited her Memphis home. She describes her life at that time at Graceland like this, "4 am sleep, or go to bed before 5. Get up at 2-3 pm in the afternoon. That was only when I was with him. When I was with Mom, she'd flip me around to a very rigorous, normal average childhood schedule."

Lisa Marie says that one day when she was 7 or 8, she told her father, "I don't want you to die." "Don't worry about me," she remembers he told her, "I'm not going anywhere." "If I was watching TV in my room, he would come to my room and sort-of stumble to my doorway, and start to fall, and I'd go catch him," she told Diane Sawyer. "You know, things like that. And he'd try to pull himself out of it if he saw me. Things like that."

In spite of those reassuring words, the second bomb dropped anyway-her larger-than-life father died suddenly in an upstairs bathroom. Lisa was in the house, visiting from California. "I just had a feeling," she says now. "He wasn't doing well. All I know is that I had it, and it happened. I was obsessed with death at a very early age."

I have to agree with Missy. I think Lisa had a very happy childhood, she mentions that in her interviews, too. She was used to everything what was going on at Graceland by birth, why would she think or feel there was something wrong with it? Neither her parents nor the MM would have told a 4 or 7 year old that her life was different from others. I would say moving to LA with her mother was the first bad change in her life, she might have learned a more controlled daily routine there, but that doesn't mean it was happier. I think Lisa lost her beloved home and was always looking forward to go back and visit her Dad and Graceland. I truly believe that the fun, the freedom and especially the love Elvis, and probably a lot of other family members and friends, had for her outweighed the other 'bad things' by far. If Elvis would have thought that Lisa was exposed to a bad influence, I think he would have changed something. And like Missy said Linda was there almost until the end and took good care of Lisa as well.

have to agree with you jak, even though Lisa loved being at graceland, she was allowed to do anything she wanted and this is part of the reason she hated his mothers cause she wasn't allowed to get away with anything and rightly so, l'am sorry but all children need to have both parents discipline or children will always run to the other parent or so l'am learning right now:blink:, not saying that elvis was a bad dad cause he wasn't and far from it, but l really think he needed to let Lisa know she couldn't do anything she wanted, just my opinion, feel free to disgree.
