Elvis Presley’s long-time girlfriend, Linda Thompson, has released an explosive memoir about her life with the late ‘King of Rock and Roll,’ in which she reveals how his life had become a nightmare of drugs, porn and violence.

 

Thompson first met Presley in 1972 when she was a 22-year-old student and pageant queen. The book, ‘Little Thing Called Life,’ sees Thompson reveal how Elvis whisked her away to Las Vegas where his hotel room contained at least a dozen prescription pill bottles by his bed. Thompson revealed:

 

“He looked around, so used to seeing the bottles, he apparently didn’t even notice them anymore, and he had to stare at them for a moment before he formulated an answer.”

 

Elvis claimed he had been unwell, as Thompson writes:

 

“I believed him, because, at that point, I had no reason not to.”

However, things continued to spiral downwards from that point as Elvis told Thompson he was a “jealous mother*cker,” warning her:

 

“I don’t ever want to see you looking at another man. I don’t want to see you talk about another man.”

 

Elvis’ erratic behavior even saw him fire a bullet through his girlfriend’s bathroom as she was standing near, while a visit to a dentist’s office in Los Angeles may have alerted Thompson to what was going on.

 

She says she saw him take “handfuls” of pills and stuff them in his pockets – Thompson says Presley needed them to sleep, wake up, or perform. And it wasn’t just pills that Presley was popping!

One day Thompson agreed to give Elvis a shot of vitamin D into his backside, but she was “shocked” by what she saw:

 

“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. I knew enough by this point to understand that he hadn’t always been getting injected with vitamins.”

 

By 1974 Presley was regularly smoking weed alongside his other drugs, but it was not just illicit substances that he enjoyed, as Presley also enjoyed watching porn – which he played to Thompson – although she confessed:

 

“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.”

Elvis Presley’s addictive personality included a love for food, as Thompson revealed:

 

“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.”

 

However, as he put on weight and aged, Elvis began to feel insecure, undergoing a facelift in 1975, before being hospitalized for what the press reported as an “intestinal blockage.” But the rela reason, Thompson insists, was to “stabilize” his drug use.

 

Despite this, Elvis went on an extreme diet where doctors sedated him for nearly two weeks:

 

“I felt like I’d stumbled into a backward reality where bizarre, unhealthy behavior was considered the norm.”

 

Thompson even once saved Elvis’ life when he passed out in a bowl of chicken noodle soup while sedated by Placidyl. Eventually it was found that Presley had been abusing powerful painkillers Demerol, Diludid and Percodan, and was also given methadone to ease his opiate withdrawal.

Elvis was also known for his violent temper, which Thompson first saw when Presley “slapped and punched” a former member of his entourage who he thought had stolen “personal” Polaroids of an ex-girlfriend “engaged in a simulated sex act with another woman.” Thompson added:

 

“We all knew how dangerous Elvis’s rage could be.”

 

In the end it was infidelity that pushed the young student away from the aging rocker. Thompson began to suspect Elvis was cheating and he became violent towards her when she confronted him. Eventually Thompson discovered Elvis in bed with a Graceland employee in the bed of his daughter, Lisa Marie, while the girl was away from home.

 

A tearful Thompson threatened to leave, only to be pushed to the ground by the laughing Elvis. Thompson writes:

 

“My fairy tale was ending.”

It was just eight months after their split that Thompson found out that Elvis had died, when she got a call from his young daughter, crying:

 

“Linda! My daddy’s dead!”

 

Linda Thompson’s ‘A Little Thing Called Life: On Loving Elvis Presley, Bruce Jenner, and Songs in Between’ is out in bookstores now.
