Over the years, Elvis Presley embarked on a number of relationships with countless women. After splitting up with his wife Priscilla Presley in 1973, the King worked on himself, learned karate, and spent his time dating. Sometime between 1973 and 1974 actress, model and singer Peggy met up with Elvis a few times. At the time Peggy was well known for appearing as Julie Barnes in TV show The Mod Squad.

In her 2005 memoir, Breathing out, Peggy wrote about what happened with her and Elvis behind closed doors.
Included in this information were details about their sex life – or lack thereof.
She wrote: “He took me away on his plane and brought me up to Tahoe, I believe. We tried to go to bed right away.
“There was nothing to talk about with Elvis. He was either doing his karate thing or eating.”

Peggy went on: “There was really no dialogue there, so we went to bed right away and it just didn’t happen for him.”
Despite the failed attempts at being together, Elvis wouldn’t give up.
The actress continued: “We tried a few more times and nothing ever happened, so I just let it go.”
She added: “He didn’t feel like a man next to me, but more like a boy who’d never matured.”
Peggy went on: “I, kind of, was interested in his heart and his soul.
“He was very persistent in getting to know me, which I found interesting, so I saw him a number of times. But I did like him as a person. I thought he was kind of a beautiful person.”
The pair split up, and by the end of 1974 Peggy married famed music producer Quincy Jones.
Elvis moved on to start a relationship with Ginger Alden.
The star was with Ginger until he died at his home, Graceland, in 1977.
After dating Ginger for some time, Elvis eventually proposed to the young actress and model.
While proposing, he said: “Ginger, I’ve been searching for love so long and never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would find it in my own backyard.
“I’ve been sixty percent happy and forty percent happy, but never a hundred percent. I’ve loved before but I’ve never been in love. Ginger, I’m asking you: Will you marry me?”
