    It looks like Elvis lives in Las Vegas after all.

    Chapels warned two weeks ago not to market the King’s name and likeness or stage Elvis-themed weddings are now being offered partnerships by the company that originally threatened legal action. Authentic Brands Group contacted multiple chapel operators on Wednesday, saying the company wants to partner with these small businesses rather than take them to court, according to chapel operators.

    Emails and calls from the Review-Journal to ABG reps have not been returned.

    At least one owner reports she has been offered a $20,000-a-year licensing deal to continue business as usual.
