Priscilla Presley Shuts Down Claims She’s ‘in Love With’ Her Former Co-Star

Priscilla Presley is putting an end to the rumors that she's "in love with" her former Dallas co-star Patrick Duffy.

During her appearance at an event in Connecticut over the weekend, Priscilla, now 78, addressed the gossip, calling it "unbelievable" and "so crazy."

"Now there’s this whole big thing out there that I love Patrick Duffy, and I’m reading this in a magazine that someone showed me yesterday," she said during a Q&A event at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., on Saturday, March 23, per People.

"I’m going, 'This is unbelievable, really, this is so crazy,'" she said of the idea she had feelings for the actor who she worked alongside for six seasons of the CBS soap opera–from 1983 to 1988–in which the two portrayed fictional high school sweethearts, Bobby Ewing and Jenna Wade.

Priscilla said that the rumor likely started during the Dallas cast reunion she attended at the Burbank Marriott Convention Center earlier this month. The Naked Gun actress recalled commenting about Duffy and his partner, Linda Purl, whom Priscilla said Duffy is "in love with," during the March 1, event.

"I hadn’t seen him in a long time, and it was a great reunion," Priscilla added of the prior event. "Patrick told me how happy he was, and we talked to the audience and they had questions for us and that’s it."

A decade before Priscilla accepted her role in Dallas, she was married to the late music icon Elvis Presley. The two were together for six years and welcomed their only child, Lisa Marie Presley, before divorcing in 1973. Elvis died just four years later at the age of 42, leaving behind Priscilla Lisa Marie (who passed away unexpectedly at age 54 in January 2023).

Now, over four decades after the King of rock 'n' roll's sudden passing, Priscilla has continued to share fond memories of their time together. Recently, she posted a throwback photo of a "surprise" gift he had given her: an adorable pup that she named Honey.
