Songwriter and actress Linda Thompson shares the story of her epic romances with two of the most celebrated, yet enigmatic, modern American superstars - Elvis Presley and Bruce Jenner. From Memphis to Malibu, Linda Thompson has left her mark on pop culture history. A famed songwriter, noted actress, and reality star, Linda Thompson built an amazing life for herself, but two epic romances shaped Linda's future forever. True to her roots as a Southern Belle, Linda has kept her life with Elvis Presley and Bruce Jenner private, until now. Born and raised in a small suburb of Memphis, Tennessee, Linda set her eyes on a series of regional beauty queen titles, and more importantly the scholarships they provided, to fund her passage to Memphis State University, where she first laid eyed on Elvis Presley. From the moment they met, Linda and Elvis were in love. Linda became his muse and Elvis encouraged her to continue songwriting, a passion that would later turn into a long, award-winning career. For five years, they lived happily in Graceland, sharing custody of his young daughter, Lisa Marie.
Filled with colorful stories from her time with the larger than life King, her time there was unforgettable, but it was difficult, marked by the ailing legend's substance abuse and erratic behavior behind closed doors, until the two were finally torn apart for good just eight months before his untimely death. Starting anew in L.A. as a star of the long-running variety show Hee Haw and nurturing her career as a songwriter, Linda meet a man she'd long-admired-the world's greatest athlete, the Olympian, Bruce Jenner. After navigating a messy divorce from his first wife, Linda and Bruce married and began a seemingly idyllic life together, complete with their two sons, Brandon and Brody, until their marriage was ultimately devastated by a secret Linda promised to help keep for the past thirty years. Now, for the first time ever, Linda speaks out about these two legendary love stories. Complete with a stunning 16-page color photo insert, Untitled loving recounts Linda's incredible untold story with insightful, fresh details about two of America's brightest stars.
