    Well, I can't find it now, but I was referring to a post by Smurf is which he linked to a 2012 Enquirer article about Lisa Marie....(in which I assumed they stated she had left the C of S.) The point being that this current article is basically a rehash of old news, which first came out in 2012. (which I was made aware of by Smurf......but do somewhat remember hearing about)

    I have not read the 2012 article, nor have I read the current article that is now on the new stands.

    Sorry that I was not clear in my writing. I guess I like to comment on things......that I've never read?

    I do agree with Anonycat's take on the current article......No denial speaks volumes.

    Lisa's daughter is out. I saw her on a talk show months back and she vaguely said she was never really into it in the first place. I was surprised the media didn't pick up on it. As for her son, I think he is also out as he and Lisa are extremely close and he was there with her during the shitstorm.

    Lisa's whole exit baffles me. Priscilla supported her Storm and Grace album which has several anti scio messages/songs. Do we know if Cilla is still involved?

    I also remember Krustie Alley tweeting Lisa saying she missed her, to which Lisa never responded. She doesn't even follow her. I think it was during the Leah fiasco so it could have been a way to save face.

    I need answers :)

    Yea, I didn't think Graceland had been sold.....but some other house had. Here is one that was sold in 2012:

    Agreed, Lisa Marie did not sell Graceland....but she sold the Elvis "Estate".....for around 100

    It appears that the $45 million amount mentioned in my post above...was what the Elvis Estate earned last year.

    And Lisa Marie is selling her own personal home in LA...for $5 million? Here:

    Just a seems a bit fishy that one would sell an "estate" that earns $45 million per year....for $100 million. Perhaps there is more to that story...?

    Here's a complete interview with Ms. Presley dated March 16, 2014 -

    Excerpts (my bold):

    I'd no idea she had E-B/CFS.

  6. I told you I was trouble

    I told you I was trouble Suspended animation

    For her to "admit" to having this issue says a lot in itself.

    I honestly think that when someone finally faces the truth and leaves the cult and is trying to work out what happened there is often an exhaustion (mental and physical) that sets in and can be diagnosed as chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia (that's what Debbie Cook had) or Epstein-Barr. When it's happening it's very, very real (trust me I've been there) but with care, most of us seem to recover well eventually.

    "Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. (EPE) is the corporate entity that was created by the Elvis Presley Trust to conduct business and manage its assets. EPE was wholly owned by the Elvis Presley Trust/Lisa Marie Presley until 2005.

    CORE Media Group currently has an 85% interest in the company Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., including its physical and intellectual properties. Lisa Marie Presley retains a 15% ownership in the company and continues to be involved in major business decisions, as does her mother Priscilla.

    Lisa Marie Presley retains 100% sole personal ownership of Graceland Mansion itself and its over 13-acre original grounds and her father's personal effects - meaning costumes, wardrobe, awards, furniture, cars, etc.. She has made the mansion property and her father's personal effects permanently available for tours of Graceland and for use in all of EPE's operations."

    Lisa Marie pocketed $100 million for selling 85% of the estate.,,1008740,00.html

    The president of EPE, Jack Soden, says there is no Scientology influence, nor has the Presley family ever mentioned it while running the estate.

    Thanks, Trouble, for providing (as always!) such insightful & thoughtful comments. :thumbsup:

    Like you, I thought her admission was commendable in itself, but given her long-term association with Co$, it was especially laudable.

    When I read the interview last night, I immediately wondered if Ms. Presley had E-B/CFS - whether diagnosed or undiagnosed - while she was still an active member of Co$. Five years ago? Eight years ago?

    If so, that would certainly raise a number of issues + questions, since scientology 'tech' is particularly useless as a medical treatment.

    This also makes me wonder about Debbie Cook - how long she'd had [STRIKE]multiple sclerosis [/STRIKE]fibromyalgia prior to leaving Co$ and what, if any, legitimate medical treatment for that condition was permitted/obtained.


    ETA: Corrected my error, with much-appreciated assistance from I Told You I Was Trouble, and apologies to all. :)

    Yes. It was the first time I had seen such a message, although it is commonplace on Youtube. I assumed (wrongly) it was because they didn't want to pay for the bandwidth in supplying UK visitors with access to their website when it was unlikely to result in much revenue. I was concerned that it was the start of a trend in restricting website access geographically, eventually leading to being unable to view much of the internet from outside one's own country (without getting into TOR or proxies which involves NSA red flag hassles).

    So I Googled the phrase and found it came about from some spat involving the UK's more relaxed libel laws.

    Multiple Sclerosis? I hadn't heard that ... I was under the impression she had been suffering from exhaustion and perhaps age related hormonal issues (menopause) which were diagnosed as fibromyalgia. I even wondered if she had used the diagnosis (which can't be proved or disproved as there are no actual tests for it just general guides and a system regarding various symptoms) as a way of getting out of the SO (and I hope she did).

    I recall (many years ago) a lovely man (aged around 26 at the time) was literally shown straight out the door as soon as his MS symptoms were diagnosed (he and his wife were GO staff) and his wife dumped him straight away too.

    Very telling.

    He was sent back to his family in New Zealand (from memory) and as usual it was hushed up. I often wonder how he felt and what happened to him., it was very sad seeing him flicked off like a piece of rubbish.

    Just researched and found I was wrong.
    There are quite a few credible reports of Ms. Cook having Fibromyalgia and zero with her ever having MS.
    Apologies to all and I've edited my original post.

    Oh, that's good news ...

    Thanks JB.

    I was in the drug store yesterday.....and saw a tiny front page headline.....(on the Enquirer...the Star....???) That Lisa Marie Presley was going to write a "Tell All Book" and had gotten a mulit million $ advance....or some thing along those lines.

    But today....searching the Web.....can't find any mention of a Book Deal....or anything about it.

    Might have to go back to the drug store....and try to find out the info.

    Just a heads up.....that a new Anti-Scientology book ......might be in the works...from Lisa Marie.

    Well....I ran out of went to the drug store...and bought coffee....and an Enquirer.

    The Headline is just sensationalism.......Article says there "might be" a deal in play....but no facts....just conjecture.

    Don't like the adjacent photo...but is the interest of posting Scamology is the head line.

    I was searching on the web....and found this also....It is a much older Enquirer Cover.....

    But "good" negative PR for Scamology.....

    Interesting it has a pic of the Scamology...."nuclear disaster bomb proof bunker...."

    National Enquirer covers like that are perfectly suited to the character of scientology.
    That is what the world should see. Not the scientology 'safe pointing' crap.
