Singer Lisa Marie Presley has a better relationship with her mother PRISCILLA now than ever before - and her prim parent even tries to swear occasionally to make her daughter feel more at home.

The feisty rocker, 37, was always devoted to her late father ELVIS PRESLEY, but she finally feels just as comfortable with her actress mother.

She says, "We've reached a place where we like and respect each other.

"After so many years of torture, misunderstandings and men getting involved - her boyfriends, or mine - it's been really nice.

"She even tries to say 'f**k' sometimes now, which cracks me up, because she does it so politely."
