ELVIS PRESLEY's estate has been hit with a new bombshell - a 46-year-old Texan woman insists she's the late rocker's sister.
Eliza Alice Presley claims to have the DNA tests that prove she's Vernon Presley's secret lovechild.
Presley states she was raised by a Texan couple after her birth mother, Florence Juanita Sharp, gave her up for adoption.
The divorced mother-of-four claims Elvis' father Vernon is her father.
Her representative, Donald Yates, reveals DNA tests carried out in Arizona match the genetic make-up of Elvis' cousin Donna.
He tells America's Globe, "I'm 99.99 per cent sure that Eliza Presley and Elvis Aaron Presley are half siblings."
As well as the scientific proof, Yates reveals his client has "sworn testimony from family members... relating to who her biological father is."
Eliza Alice Presley has filed papers in Memphis, Tennessee, claiming she's entitled to be "recognised as his daughter and allowed to inherit her statutory share of his estate".
