Fergie and Presley are believed to have met around 2009, and according to a friend, they "hit it off straight away."

"They just seemed to understand each other," the friend noted. "They became quite close and kept in touch when Lisa Marie moved back to the States. And she was very supportive of the Duchess when she had tough times."
