Navarone Garibaldi Garcia confided in his famous family.

Garcia, a musician, is the son of Elvis Presley’s ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, and producer Marco Garibaldi.

The 35-year-old stayed out of the spotlight growing up, telling People: “A lot of people know me. But they don’t know me.

Garcia was in the public eye recently when he attended a memorial at Graceland for his half-sister Lisa Marie Presley on Jan. 22.

Lisa Marie, Elvis’ only daughter, died aged 54 on January 12 after being hospitalized after a heart attack.

Speaking about his half-sister’s death, Garcia said, “It’s still so surreal.”

The musician recalled that growing up, people realized who his mother was and “wanted a reason to talk to her.”

“I got in trouble more than anyone, because the kids’ parents would find out who my mom was and they’d want a reason to talk to her,” he said. “I was not very comfortable with it.”


In 2012, Garcia returned to Los Angeles to pursue music with his band Them Guns.

He said, “I was like, ‘OK, I’m going into the family business. I’ll write a song, then we’ll start shooting it. I didn’t realize it needed much more than that.

According to the publication, Garcia acknowledges that he is lucky to have access to his mother’s connection.

He said, however, that it’s “a misconception that I was raised extravagantly on the estate and money of Elvis… It wasn’t.”

The musician said he dreams of embarking on a world tour with his band in the future.

“There were times when I didn’t think I would get here,” he added. “I’m so proud of how far we’ve come.”
