Is Navarone The Son Of Elvis Presley?

As stated Navarone was born in 1987. This clearly means Elvis would have been dead for almost 10 years when the young musician was born. Garibaldi’s mother, Priscilla, and music icon Elvis Presley were in a marital tie for just under six years from 1967 until their divorce in 1973. And while they had a child, it wasn’t Navarone, it was a daughter – Lisa Marie.

Navarone Garibaldi’s Biological Parents

Garibaldi is the son of Priscilla Presley and Marco Garibaldi. Priscilla and Marco were together for 22 years; they separated in 2006. The couple though never married each other.

His father is an entrepreneur and film director. Priscilla’s ex’s ventures also include architecture, screenwriting, manufacturing, engineering, public service, software engineering, botany, and real estate development. Marco’s credits include three Power Rangers TV episodes in 1995 and a 2009 Brittany Murphy thriller, Across The Hall.

Anthony’s parents met in 1984 after a mutual friend recommended Marco as a screenwriter for Priscilla’s new project.

His Father Is A Con Artist?!

Aug 2018 brought quite a shock to Navarone’s mother, Priscilla. She was surprised when she found out that her ex-partner, Marco was a con artist who had faked his last name to the noble-sounding Garibaldi. In addition, he had also convinced people and Priscilla herself into thinking his wealthy Italian family had moved to Brazil when he was a kid.

However, Navarone’s father’s real name turned out to be Garcia. Marco had changed his last name and invented a romantic story about Europe and wealth to impress Hollywood bigwigs and Priscilla after they met in 1984.

An insider reported Galibardi’s father actually comes from a middle-class Brazilian family. He, however, had told everyone, including Priscilla, he was from a very important Italian family.

It was his son, Navarone who first got texts from a teenage Brazilian relative about his father. When Priscilla’s son confronted his father about it, Marco blew up and told his son to never speak to him again.

Navarone then himself flew down to Brazil to meet his relatives. Apparently, he found out that his father was indeed lying and he was Brazilian after all. The California-born rock artist said his mother felt shocked when she heard all about this.

Did Navarone Really Curse His Half-Sister, Lisa Marie Presley 

Priscilla’s son, Garibaldi has a half-sister of Lisa Marie Presley. Marie was born on February 1, 1968, through Priscilla and Elvis’ union.

A Facebook Group, The Conspiracy or Truth of Elvis, then posted on their official page that Lisa’s half-brother, for reasons still unknown, decided to go on Instagram to say some inappropriate words to his sister. As per the FB page, Anthony Garibaldi posted that Marie was not a nice person and called her a f*****g c**t, all before wishing her dead.

The comment was short-lived, but thousands of viewers had already read the hateful remarks. It never came to be known what really was the matter.

Some speculate this is mostly because of Lisa Marie Presley’s strained relationship with her mother Priscilla. She once revealed that she was broke, and financially cut off by her mother during such a dire time in her life.
