SHOCKING REVELATION: ELVIS PRESLEY INTO DRUGS, PORN AND VIOLENCE- EX-LOVER

One man in the music kingdom not even the most fanatical of Michael Jackson’s supporters would deny his superiority over their Jacko Wacko idol, is Elvis Presley.

In life and even in death, Elvis was the best. He was loved and idolized by millions all over the world for his music and style. He towered above the Michaels of this world. But when fame and wealth took over him, he lost everything, including his pretty life.

Now, his ex-lover, Linda Thompson has come out to tell the listening world how dubious her late boyfriend was.

Read extracts from Radar.com:

“Elvis Presley may have charmed his fans, but at home, the King of Rock and Roll terrorized his longtime girlfriend Linda Thompson in the years before his overdose death, she claims in her new memoir, Little Thing Called Life.

“One day, Presley picked up one of his many guns and shot a bullet through Thompson’s bathroom— while she was standing nearby! It missed her by just inches, she claims. “What the hell were you doing?” she says she yelled. “You could have killed me!” He later apologized.

 

“During a visit to a dentist’s office in Los Angeles, Thompson says she witnessed Presley taking “handfuls” of pills and stuffing them into his pockets. At that point, she claims she knew he took meds to sleep, wake up, and go on stage.

 

“Thompson, who had been a virgin before she met Presley, was shocked by her boyfriend’s porn collection. He played adult film The Devil in Miss Jones for her, and laughed when she was shocked by the onscreen sex acts. “I guess I was too much of a Goody Two-shoes at the time to get into it like Elvis may have hoped I would,” she writes.

“Thompson first noticed Presley’s violent side when he “slapped and punched” a former member of his entourage whom he believed had stolen “personal” Polaroids of an ex-girlfriend “engaged in a simulated sex act with another woman,” she writes. “We all knew how dangerous Elvis’s rage could be.”

“Presley’s lust for sex and pills was matched by his insatiable appetite for food. “Whenever he asked me to cook for him, I made sure to prepare a pound of bacon, a six-egg omelet, and five or six pieces of toast. It was like cooking for an army,” she recalls in awe. He sometimes would even eat an entire box of Eskimo Pies ice cream bars.

“While under the influence of drugs, an unsteady Presley once showed off his Samurai sword moves on a motionless Thompson, who feared for her life. “I don’t think I breathed at all for at least 60 seconds, knowing as I did that his capabilities were impaired because of the drugs,” she says. “But he was as good as his word, and he didn’t so much as scratch me, or even touch me.”

“One day, Thompson agreed to give Presley a shot of vitamin B into his behind— and was shocked by the “disturbing” sight of his naked buttocks. “Clearly these types of injections were something he’d been doing for a long time, long enough to give him scar tissue that had formed into hard knots,” she says. “I knew enough by this point to understand that he hadn’t always been getting injected with vitamins.”

“Presley began to become violent toward his young love, she alleges. When she confronted him about his suspected affairs, he threw a plate of spaghetti against the wall. “Just shut up!” she says he screamed. He then followed her into the bathroom, and pushed her backward.

“At the end of 1974, Presley added marijuana to his daily drug cocktails, Thompson claims.

“When the rocker turned 40 in 1975, he became “obsessed” with getting plastic surgery. Ignoring his doctor’s concerns, he underwent a facelift. “He seemed to feel better when he looked in the mirror,” Thompson says.

“Soon after, Presley was hospitalized for what he told the press was “intestinal blockage.” However, the model claims doctors really needed to “stabilize” his drug use.

“In order to lose weight, Presley went on an extreme diet where a doctor put him under near-constant sedation for two weeks. “I felt like I’d stumbled into a backward reality where bizarre, unhealthy behavior was considered the norm,” she writes.

“Under the influence of sedative Placidyl and perhaps other medications, Presley once passed out facedown into a bowl of chicken noodle soup, Thompson claims. His “terrified” girlfriend saved his life by administering a shot of Ritalin prescribed for emergencies.

“According to doctors who treated him during a subsequent two-week hospitalization, Presley had been abusing powerful painkillers Demerol, Diludid and Percodan, Thompson says, adding that he was given methadone to ease him out of opiate withdrawal.

“Thompson says she knew she had to leave her troubled boyfriend when she discovered him having sexual relations with a Graceland employee in daughter Lisa Marie’s bed while the little girl wasn’t home. When she threatened to leave him, she claims he pushed her to the ground and laughed as she cried. “My fairy tale was ending,” she writes.

Just eight months after the split, Thompson learned of her ex’s tragic death from his young daughter in a shocking phone call. “Linda! My daddy’s dead!” the little girl allegedly cried.”
