LISA Marie Presley quit her concert tour concert tour because she finally realized she could never fill her father’s shoes.
The 46-year-old daughter Elvis Presley publicly claimed that chronic back pain forced her to put her music career on hold.
But according to the National Enquirer, Lisa’s decision was actually triggered by a combination of poor ticket sales and Elvis’ lingering legacy.
“Lisa has finally come to terms with the fact that she’ll never even come close to her father’s success,” revealed a source close to the Presley family.
“I think she canceled her tour early because she hated any negative comments and reviews and was embarrassed about not playing to packed venues. Her bad back issues were just an excuse.
“She tried to build her own fan base, but she finally broke down and admitted, ‘The audience comes to see Elvis’ daughter, not me.’ She said she was done chasing a silly dream and doesn’t feel like ever performing again.
“She’s trying to save face. The reality is that she’s embarrassed by the poor turnout. She always said if she wasn’t a success by 42 – the age her father died – she would give it up.
“Well, she’s four years past that mark, and it appears Lisa Marie is hanging up her guitar for good.”
