The story starts in 1954 and as it's been told to family members, Rebecca Holland was at a night club in Memphis when someone not quite a star yet took the stage. Tim Farrell, Holland's son, says during the first break, Elvis came down and asked her to dance. She accepted and later that evening she went to a hotel with Elvis and his band. Farrell says sometime during the night she and Elvis ended up alone in the room and several months later she discovered she was pregnant.
Twenty-three years later as Farrell was on the road entertaining, even performing the King's songs, he got a phone call from his mother saying he was conceived that night in Memphis. Farrell says there was no way to prove it and the story was pretty hard fro him to believe. But when Holland died in 2002 the family found something that gave her story some credibility. Family members found a letter apparently sent by someone in the Presley family claiming that Elvis may have a son somewhere.
Farrell says he plans to ask Elvis Presley Enterprises for a DNA test and he's currently consulting with an attorney in Memphis. News Ten contacted Elvis Presley Enterprises and a representative says the claim has been made before and the company has no comment.
