Elvis Presley’s romance with teenage dancer after seeing her photo in a nightclub

Elvis Presley returned from Germany in 1960 with a newfound love of women. Not long after that, he brought Priscilla Presley to Graceland to live with him – but his womanising didn’t stop just because his fiancée was in the country. The singer reportedly spotted a photo of young Sandy Martindale in her father’s Los Angeles nightclub in 1961, prompting the start of another relationship for the King of Rock and Roll.

Sandy spoke to Elvis.com.au in 2015 where she recalled how she got on with Elvis during the 1960s.

At just 14-years-old, Sandy’s photo was enough to completely “bowl Elvis over”.

She recalled: “He called me to go out, but I had to tell him I had school the next day.

“The next night Mom drove me to the club to meet him.”

She laughed: “My mother came with us on our first dates. I was so embarrassed I cried.”

Sandy went on to describe her first date with Elvis.

She said: “Elvis had a date with a gorgeous actress that night and there I was, with my little ponytail.

“He was 24. He held my hand, kissed me on the cheek and I was a goner.”

What do you think?

Should Elvis have broken up with Sandy?

Sandy went on: “In Viva Las Vegas that’s me with Ann-Margret and Elvis dancing at the roulette table.”

Eventually, in 1967, Elvis broke it off before going on to marry Priscilla.

But even after his marriage began, the King maintained stayed in contact with Sandy, remaining friends until the end.

The youngster described being “devastated” when she last saw Elvis backstage at one of his last Las Vegas concerts – just before he passed away in 1977.

Sandy went on to marry Wink Martindale, a renowned American DJ, radio personality and TV producer.

Wink became fast friends with Elvis over the years, playing a number of his songs on his TV and radio shows.

The couple has since appeared on Sirius’ Elvis Radio to share stories about the King.

Recalling one particular time, the presenter discussed the moment Chris spilled to viewers that she had a “sex dream” about him, which she told him off camera.

While Gaby has never revealed further details about the dream, it has definitely stuck with fans over the years.

She revealed: “It is extraordinary how still, all these years later, people say, ‘Did anything happen romantically with you and Chris?’ and I say, ‘No, but I did have a sex dream about him once’.

“I remember I came into the show one day as usual and said, ‘Oh my God, Chris, I had a sex dream about you’.

At present, she is married to David Osmon, while Chris tied the knot with Natasha Shishmanian in 2007.

Gaby said she is still “extremely close” to the Virgin Radio Breakfast presenter and revealed they still laugh about the things they used to get away with.

Earlier this year, she stepped in Kate Lawler’s shoes for her Drivetime Show.

Speaking at the time, she told Chris: “I’m so scared! I’m properly nervous about it. I’m nerv-cited is what we always say.

“It’s the best feeling in the world being nerv-cited.”

On always being upbeat, she added: “I don’t like reigning it in. I’ve never reigned it in.

But he got the all clear in November after two operations – first to remove his bowel and fit a colostomy bag and another to replace the bowel.

He was dating X Factor star Alexandra, 32, at the time and has since revealed she was a huge support.

He told The Sun: “I hadn’t been with Alex long and, I know it sounds stupid, but I was worried it may affect our relationship. We’d only just passed the dating stage.

“I tried to act as normal as I could but she knew something wasn’t right.”

He said Alex was “devastated” by the news.

Angus was diagnosed with a blood clot in his leg in September 2018, which saw him pull out of playing football for nine months, before the cancer shock was confirmed in August.

Angus is now a patron for Bowel Cancer UK, offering ongoing support to raise awareness of the illness.

He was given the all clear in December of last year, but the pair broke things off in March 2021.

A source confirmed they went their separate ways after becoming too busy with their individual careers.

The singer deleted all trace of her ex from her Instagram account as they called it quits after a difficult first year together.

Alexandra has not been spotted out with a new beau, but will there be a date two for Angus and Rachel?

Amelia Hamlin sizzled in a nude-colored bikini as she soaked up the sun outdoors, teasing that it’s looking ‘a lot like summer.’

Amelia Hamlin took to Instagram to share her latest bikini photo. The 19-year-old stunned in a nude tie dye bikini from British fast fashion label boohoo on Friday, April 30. “It’s beginning to look a lot like summer,” the model captioned her post, adding sunshine and bikini emojis, as well as tagging boohoo. Amelia lounged on a white chair as she soaked up the sunshine in what appeared to be her backyard.

The brunette paired the bra style top with a matching cover-up skirt, opting to go barefoot as she showed off her fresh white pedicure. She kept her hair center parted and straight as she looked off to the side, keeping her glam on the light side. She appeared to be rocking her signature laminated brows and light eye makeup, as well as a neutral lipstick.

Fans showed plenty of love for Lisa Rinna‘s daughter in the comments. “Gorgeous darling!” one fan gushed, while another added, “Keep positive…Looking a bit like a young Jessica Alba.” Others made reference to her ongoing romance with Scott Disick, 37, which seemed to begin around Halloween of last year.

Earlier this month, Scott and Amelia returned to Miami for a romantic getaway that included plenty of PDA. The model rocked a sheer green cover-up and slides as she headed to a yacht with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who appeared to be enjoying a vape and Red Bull on April 6. On the same trip, Amelia also appeared to be sporting a beaded bracelet that read “Scott,” which popped up in social media posts (another also read “The Lord,” a nickname bestowed on Scott after purchased an online knighting ceremony in London).

“Cutest lil bracelets,” Amelia wrote in her caption, tagging the founder of jewelry brand Aura Sugar Co., Corinne Olympios. The teen has also been spending time with Scott and Kourtney Kardashian‘s kids, including the adorable Penelope, 8! Scott and P held hands as Amelia, clad in a pair of rainbow hot pants, walked just behind on a shopping trip. At one point, she appeared to gaze at Penelope lovingly.

Controversy has swirled around the pair for months due to their 18 year age gap — and the drama appears to be spilling onto The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After Lisa Rinna receives a call from Amelia that she will be hanging out with her “friend” Scott, she tells the other ladies — including Kyle Richards. Kyle didn’t seem to approve of the situation, saying “He’s too damn old and he’s got three kids.” Lisa retorted, “I know!”

Why Scott Disick ‘Doesn’t Like’ Kourtney Kardashian’s Very Public Romance With Travis Barker

It seems Scott Disick isn’t the biggest fan of his ex Kourtney Kardashian’s PDA-heavy relationship with Travis Barker. Here’s why.

There’s been no shortage of PDA between Kourtney Kardashian and her new man Travis Barker. While her family, friends and fans are incredibly happy to see her looking more radiant than ever, it seems one person isn’t a huge fan of their social media posts — including one of Kourt sucking Travis’ finger! A source close to Kourt’s ex Scott Disick has revealed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star worries their blossoming relationship could affect “his standing” within the KarJenner family.

“Scott doesn’t like seeing what is happening with Kourt and Travis because as that relationship continues to blossom it makes Scott feel like he might lose his standing within the family,” the insider dished to HollywoodLife. “Sure he will always be connected because of the kids but if Kourtney moves on and even possibly gets married it will be such a gut punch because he wasn’t the one who did it.” The source also explained that it would be a “blow to his ego,” adding, “he is considering the fallout … if he loses his standing with the family then his outside ventures will dry up as well.”

A second source also explained that he and Kourtney were in a “great place” prior to her new relationship with Travis. “Scott was feeling closer to Kourtney than he has in a long time after his split from Sofia [Richie], and before she started dating Travis,” the insider revealed. “They were in a great place as co-parents and communicating better than ever. Of course they weren’t a couple, but he was really enjoying just spending time as a family and bonding again.”

The source added, “Scott’s happy for Kourtney and he would never want to take that away from her, but he does miss spending as much time with her and the kids as he had before. He understands that this was bound to happen at some point, he just didn’t imagine it would happen so soon. Scott is learning to adjust and at the end of the day, he just wants what’s best for Kourtney and if Travis makes her happy then he’s all for it.”

On the most recent episode of KUWTKKourtney admitted that talking about the possibility of getting back together with Scott in the future gave her “anxiety” after he cheated on her in the past. “I don’t know,” she said. “He’s handsome, he’s smart, he’s funny, he’s the dad of my kids. I think just the thought gives me anxiety.”
