Elvis Killed by Constipation

Posted on September 27, 2011


An unreleased version of Elvis Presley’s classic Love Me Tender is available to stream over at Rolling Stone, as part of a new box set celebrating the early days of his career as a vibrant hip thrusting heart-throb.

But it was the King’s inability to thrust hard enough that’s been widely acknowledged as the cause of his untimely death. Doctors report that when he died on the toilet in his Graceland mansion he had an enlarged colon that was some 9 feet large, containing stool that was four to five months old.

Below is a shot of the bathroom as it was when he tried to squeeze that last one out, as well as a shot of him in his last ever performance in 1977, which you can watch here.
