Lisa-Marie Presley is desperate to find her true soulmate after three failed marriages, but she admits she has given up on love for now.

The singer, who has been married to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, admits she got closest to real love with her first husband Danny Keogh, who is also the father of her children.

The couple, who were married for six years, are as close as ever, but Lisa-Marie understands why he's reluctant to become `Mr Presley' again.

She says, "It's difficult when you're a man and you're with a woman who has all the money and the fame. They can be beautiful souls with incredible talent but they become Mr Presleys.

"They become negated somehow and that creates resentment and disputes.

"When I met Danny I knew that he was going to be the father of my children. I knew that he was going to be someone I'd be connected to my whole life.

"He was a great musician and once he married me he kinda got pummeled. He helped me with this record and I gave him all this credit because I wanted him to have it because he was so much a part of my development as an artist. But he doesn't want to come out.

"People are trying to interview him but he doesn't want to do any of that. We still go on vacations together. We're like comrades.

"I'm trying not to focus on love right now because I'm not very good at it. It's too distracting."
