If you don't already know literally everything about living legend Priscilla Presley, get ready because Sofia Coppola's movie, Priscilla, dropped last year and the vibe is...peak aesthetic. But increased interest in Priscilla's fascinating life has been going on for a minute now—especially since she's also been in the news due to the public acrimony between her and Riley Keough regarding her late husband Elvis' estate.

This grandmother-granddaughter duo reportedly reached a settlement in 2023—and if you're under the impression that everything's done and dusted, think again. According to court docs obtained by CNN in May 2024, Riley Keough is still fighting for Graceland as she alleges fraud against a "nonexistent" company that's attempting to foreclose the sale. But... more on that later, 'cause it's a lot.

Because of this 😬 new development, we're taking a look at Priscilla's total net worth. Which, much like Austin Butler's Elvis voice, is impressive and long-lasting.

Priscilla and Elvis' Divorce Settlement

According to Celebrity Net Worth, when Priscilla and Elvis split in 1973, she got 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. FWIW, even after their split, Priscilla and Elvis remained close friends.

Oh, and after her divorce from Elvis, Priscilla opened a boutique in Los Angeles called Bis & Beau with her friend and stylist Olivia Bis in 1973. So, she probably raked in some dough from that single-era business venture.

She's Been Busy Making Money!

On top of producing a ton of movies, Priscilla has a line of perfumes, which seem to be available on Amazon? Or at least available for resale? Honestly not sure, but either way:

She also sat on the Board of Directors of MGM (casual), has several acting credits under her belt—including a long-running stint on Dallas—and wrote a bestselling book about her life with Elvis, aptly titled Elvis and Me.

The book also acted as the source material for Sofia Coppola's A24 film, Priscilla, which Priscilla (again, very casually) produced.

Elvis' (Very Complicated) Estate

Priscilla's net worth has been slightly complicated due to the tragic passing of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, who inherited Elvis' estate (which reportedly earns $10 million in a typical year, FYI).

According to a May 2024 report from CNN, Priscilla's granddaughter, Riley Keough, is fighting for Graceland and alleging fraud against the company trying to foreclose the sale (which, seemingly, "does not exist"). Per court docs obtained by the outlet, a company called Naussany Investments & Private Lending LLC presented documents that allegedly showed that Lisa Marie had borrowed $3.8 million from them and "gave a deed of trust encumbering Graceland as security." Riley is reportedly suing the company and filed a temporary restraining order on May 15 to prevent any "non-judicial sale."

Before... *wildly gestures* all of that ^^^, the family went through some drama regarding Lisa Marie's will, specifically when it came to 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."

Pirscilla's grandchildren—Riley and her sisters, Harper and Finley—inherited Graceland from their mother, but in January 2023, Priscilla reportedly filed a petition to challenge her daughter's will. Obviously, this situation was very messy and sad, but the good news? In May 2023, CNN reported Priscilla had 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.…There was a lot of back-and-forth, but they reached a middle ground that makes them both happy.”

So what did said settlement consist of? According to the New York Times, Priscilla got lump-sum payment of $1 million, plus an additional $400,000 to cover her legal fees. On top of that, she was been retained as a “special adviser” and will be paid an "undisclosed annual amount for 10 years, or until her death."

After all the ~dramz~, Priscilla shared a photo of her grandchildren on Instagram, making it clear they're on good terms:

Priscilla's Personal Real Estate

Priscilla reportedly sold her parent's home for $3.6 million in 2019, and just one year later sold her Beverly Hills home for $13 million. She also owns a $4.8 million penthouse in Century City.

What is Priscilla Presley's Total Net Worth in 2023?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Priscilla Presley has a total net worth of $50 million. So yeah, she's doing just fine. And—depending on what kinda deal she cut with Sofia Coppola over the rights to her life story—that number could definitely increase. 👀
