Priscilla Presley was once so upset with her daughter's hellraising ways she threatened to send her off to a kibbutz in Israel.

Priscilla and Lisa-Marie Presley are now firm friends, but the singer admits her mum was once desperate to straighten out her wildchild daughter.

Lisa-Marie says, "My mom and I are like oil and water, black and white. She didn't know what to do with me.

"She was going to put me in a kibbutz in Israel or a finishing school.

"She's a beautiful spirit and from a very different time period. She sweeps everything under the carpet. She's just perfection, and I'm a complete f**king nightmare. I'm a bull in her china shop.

"It took a long time to find how not to upset or offend her. Now we're fine."
