Elvis’s only offspring, Lisa Marie Presley, had already been divorced twice and broken off an engagement when she met actor Nicolas Cage. Their relationship was shaky from the start, but they wed in Hawaii in August 2002 on the 25th anniversary of Elvis’s death, 10 days after Cage proposed. Their marriage ended around Thanksgiving of that year, with Cage citing irreconcilable differences. “I’m sad about this, but we shouldn’t have been married in the first place,” Presley said in a statement. “It was a big mistake.” Sadly, their divorce proceedings lasted 13 months—four times as long as their marriage—and things were finalized on May 26, 2004. The following year, Presley talked to Oprah and said she and Cage were on better terms. “I have to give him credit, you know. That was not a fun time for either of us. He did redeem himself in the end and we did become very good friends after that,” she explained.
