Priscilla Presley tells upset fans to 'calm down'
Priscilla Presley is asking fans of her late ex-husband Elvis Presley to "please calm down" after a report that two jets once owned by the singer could be removed from Graceland.
Fans have posted critical comments on Facebook since The Associated Press reported last week that Elvis Presley Enterprises informed the owners of the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II to prepare to remove the planes after their agreement ends next April.
The planes were sold after Presley died Aug. 16, 1977, and were eventually purchased by OKC Partnership in Memphis.
OKC Partnership and Graceland agreed to bring the two jets to Graceland in the mid-1980s.
Priscilla Presley posted two comments on her Facebook page. One asks fans to "please calm down, we're in the midst of negotiations."

Harry Potter is back in new J.K. Rowling story
Harry Potter is back -- mysterious, married and going gray.
J.K. Rowling has given fans a glimpse of the grown-up boy wizard in a new story posted Tuesday on her Pottermore website.
It's the first update since "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" was published in 2007, but Rowling spokesman Mark Hutchinson said there are "no plans" for a new Potter novel.
The 1,500-word story describes Harry, about to turn 34, attending the final of the Quidditch World Cup with his family and old friends Ron and Hermione.
Harry now has "threads of silver" in his hair and a mysterious cut on his cheekbone, related to his "top secret" work as an evil-battling Auror.
The story is written in the style of a gossip column for the Daily Prophet by reporter Rita Skeeter, a minor character in the novels.
The style allows Rowling to poke fun at the tabloid press, a real-life bugbear that she has accused of invading her privacy and that of her family.
