Marie has patched up her troubled relationship with her mother Priscilla following years of tension, insisting the two are now best friends.
Lisa Marie Presley has endured a tumultuous relationship with her Dallas actress mum ever since her days as a reckless teen, but the singer admits she grew frustrated by their constant arguments and now mother and daughter act more like close siblings.
During a joint interview with U.S. breakfast show Today, which aired on Friday (17Aug12), Lisa Marie said, "She is actually my best friend... "My mum and I have a really great, almost sisterly, fun relationship now.
"She understands me, I understand her...I'm less angry...and more interested in being compassionate and understanding...than fighting constantly".
And the King's ex-wife, who admits she was not the best mother, is happy they finally share a strong bond. Priscilla Presley added, "I think we all grow, I was a young mother in a world that really children don't belong (in).
"I had to learn a lot, without really any role model. I had to take those steps and evolve... I love my relationship now".
