Rock-n-roll icon Elvis Presley and wife Priscilla's divorce document, dated August 15, 1972, is up for auction.

The yellowed papers are being described by auctioneers Henry and Andrew Aldridge as "a fabulous piece of show business history," that will be made available in the United Kingdom, according to Fox


"Each of the 12 pages contains fascinating details and offers the reader a snapshot into the details and offers the reader a snapshot into the details involved between both parties that only legal documents can give," Henry said.

The document states that the former couple agreed to divide up their property via the document to avoid more legal costs and "emotional stress."

"The parties were married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas, Nevada," the document states. "Unfortunate circumstances and unhappy differences have arisen between the parties by reason of which they have lived separate and apart since February 23, 1972, and by reason of which they intend to dissolve their marriage."

The settlement is signed by both Elvis and Priscilla.

A pre-sale estimate of the settlement is between USD 26,318 to USD 32,898.
