Barbara Leigh (1970-1972)
Elvis's infidelity continued throughout his marriage to Priscilla. In 1970, he began a relationship with actor Barbara Leigh behind his wife's back. According to Elvis Australia, Leigh said that she and the singer were careful not to be caught together in public in order to avoid "a huge scandal." Keeping up their affair was also hard since both of them were so busy with their careers. Not to mention, Leigh was just one of several women competing for Elvis's attention. "I never believed that I was the only girlfriend, and I accepted Elvis for the time we spent together," Leigh told the outlet. "I was lucky enough to share with him and I never asked him any questions, and he did likewise."
In the end, it all proved to be too much for the couple. "Our schedules became more and more difficult to align, and gradually, after he met Linda Thompson in 1972, it was pretty much over," Leigh revealed. "We remained friends but drifted apart romantically."
