How is Navarone related to Lisa Marie?
As fans know, Lisa Marie is the only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley. After the famous couple split in 1973, Priscilla would go one to date a few high-profile men until she met Brazilian screenwriter and producer Marco Garibaldi. The pair were an item for 22 years before they broke it off in 2006. During their time together, they welcomed Navarone on March 1, 1987, giving Priscilla’s only daughter a half-brother!
At the time of Lisa Marie’s death, Navorone’s mother also gave a heartwarming tribute to the late star. “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

Navarone told Music News that their sound is inspired by such greats as Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails and Chemical Brothers. In 2015, Them Guns had a few songs on the soundtrack for the film, Shut Up And Drive.

Priscilla said she was ‘proud of him’ for not riding on Lisa Marie’s coattails.
“My son Navarone is his own person. He wants to do his own thing and I’m really proud of him,” Priscilla told The Guardian. “He doesn’t want to step into the spotlight, and he’s always been that way. He’s not riding on Elvis and he’s not riding on Lisa.” She added that she made sure not to compare family members to her iconic ex-husband. “We have never been, ‘Elvis this, Elvis that,’ to our children because otherwise you’re building up something that is almost unreachable for them,” she said.
Navarone married in Switzerland
Navarone tied the knot to Elisa Achilli at the Schloss Hünigen hotel in Konolfingen, Switzerland in February 2022. “I never thought I would find a counterpart that is so understanding and supportive,” Navorone told People. “She makes everything we do effortless, and I can’t imagine life without her.”
