Elvis Presley's daughter is exercising a little divadom. New British resident Lisa Marie Presley is demanding that staff at her new English estate sign strict privacy contracts, and has already fired two employees for refusing to do so. The private LMP drew up the confidentiality agreement to prevent 'leaks' about her private life after she hit the headlines in Britain following her move into the town of Tunbridge Wells, Kent, on Tuesday.
The six-page document bans staff and their relatives from discussing details of the building, furnishings and decor, including photos or mementos related to her relatives. This doesn't sound too out of line of a request for Presley to make and comes with the territory of working for a celeb. However, she is not budging and immediately dismissed two cleaners who asked to first take legal advice before signing the documents.
A source commented, "It was like they were being asked to sign the Official Secrets Act. It was way over the top and they felt it was a total infringement of their human rights. Staff could not speak to their husbands, wives or even their grandchildren about what they did."
Lisa Marie reportedly picked the British town because of its vicinity to East Grinstead, Sussex, where Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard settled in 1959 after moving from the United States. She is a devout follower of the "religion," if you want to call it that.
Is Lisa Marie Presley being too much of a diva with her privacy restrictions with her new staff in her new place of residence?
