Elvis Presley's Grandson Signs Deal

Elvis Presley's teenage grandson has landed a record deal worth $5 million.

Benjamin Presley has landed a five-album contract with Universal, and has already started work on his first LP, which he hopes to release next year.

However, Benjamin - the 16-year-old son of Elvis' daughter Lisa Marie Presley - won't be copying his grandfather's defining rock 'n' roll sound.

He said: "The music will be nothing like Elvis, nothing like him at all."

His spokesperson added: "He's a typical teenager. He doesn't get up until noon then grunts at you."

Benjamin - who bears a remarkable resemblance to Elvis, who died 15 years before he was born - was born in 1992 to Lisa Marie and musician Danny Keough.

Although his parents legally separated in 1994, they have remained on good terms and Danny still lives in a guest house connected to Lisa Marie's estate. He also home schooled Benjamin and the couple's other child, 20-year-old daughter Danielle Riley, now a model.

Just 20 days after Lisa Marie and Danny divorced she went on to marry 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson. The marriage lasted until 1996, and she has since been married twice more, to actor Nicolas Cage and current husband Michael Lockwood, a guitarist and music producer.
