WHITEHAVEN, Tenn., Oct. 7 (UPI) -- A former Whitehaven, Tenn., resident has denied her daughter's claims to being the half-sister of late rock 'n' roll singer Elvis Presley.

Florence Clark said she spent time at Elvis's home and accompanied the singer on several outings with his entourage, but she said she never had a sexual relationship with the King or his father, Vernon Presley, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported Monday.

"There is no Presley connection," said Clark, 67, who now lives in Oregon. "I would be rich if there was a Presley connection. Do you think I would walk away from that? Would any girl walk away from that if they had a child by Vernon or Elvis?"

Clark's daughter, Alice Elizabeth Tiffin, 46, who recently changed her name to Eliza A. Presley, said DNA tests have proven that Vernon Presley, who died in 1979 at age 63, was her father.

Donald Yates, head of DNA Consulting in Scottsdale, Ariz., said he has been analyzing the case for five years and testing of Presley family members, including DNA from Elvis, led him to become "99.99 percent sure" that Tiffin and Elvis are half-siblings with Vernon as their father.
