His father is a scammer?!

August 2018 was quite a shock for Navarone’s mother, Priscilla. She was surprised to find out that her ex-partner, Marco, was a con artist who had faked his last name to the noble-sounding Garibaldi. Moreover, he had also convinced people and Priscilla himself that his wealthy Italian family had moved to Brazil when he was a child.

However, the real name of Navarone’s father turned out to be Garcia. Marco had changed his last name and made up a romantic story about Europe and wealth to impress Hollywood bigwigs and Priscilla after they met in 1984.

An insider reported that Galibardi’s father actually comes from a middle-class Brazilian family. However, he had told everyone, including Priscilla, that he came from a very important Italian family.

It was his son, Navarone, who first got text messages from a Brazilian teenage relative about his father. When Priscilla’s son confronted his father about it, Marco blew up and told his son never to talk to him again.

Navarone then flew to Brazil himself to meet his relatives. Apparently he found out that his father was indeed lying and that he was Brazilian after all. The California-born rock artist said his mother was shocked to hear all this.

A Facebook group, The Conspiracy of Truth of Elvis, then posted on their official page that Lisa’s half-brother, for reasons still unknown, decided to take to Instagram to say some inappropriate words to his sister.

The comment was short-lived, but thousands of viewers had already read the hateful comments. What really happened was never known.
