This is incorrect. Anita left Elvis almost on the spot when she overheard him discussing his concern about choosing between Anita and his German paramour. She made the choice for
him. She left, and did not return. Anita had pride, and she used it.
I hope you enjoyed the entire topic, as hundreds already have.
I understand that, but my point was Elvis didn't care. She left, but he let her go.
At that time he was dating alot of woman.
He leaves for Germany and Anita is supposed to be his "love".
But he dated some German women.
He meets Priscilla. Anita finds out about it.
Anita didn't stop her life because I think she knew Elvis was not that into her.
Then when Elvis gets back to Hollywood he starts dating starlets like Nancy Sharp, etc.
But the pics of Anita with dyed black hair(1961?) with Elvis are sometime after the first leaving IIRC.
But yes, Elvis was not going to leave her. He rarely "left" anyone. He would just keep 'em dangling for as long
as they stuck around. Each one had to finally make the choice and leave ELvis.
That's what i meant when I said he let her go. He didn't try to stop her and fight it. She left, and he dated who ever was next in line.
Besides how could he really demand Anita not date, while he was in Hollywood for 6 months out of the year, do what ever he wanted.
