It seems like over the past two years we’ve heard every possible new detail and claim about Elvis Presley. Between portraying Austin Butler in the Oscar-nominated film Elvis at the resurgence of his wife Priscilla Presley’s account of their relationship in her autobiography, people want to know everything they can. More recently, Sofia Coppola’s next film Priscilla released its first trailer, along with a little-known Amazon documentary titled Elvis’ wives (Or Loving Elvis).

With this documentary, we get testimonials from former lovers of Elvis, as well as an explosive claim from his half-brother David Stanley. As many know, Elvis died suddenly at the age of 42 after cardiac arrest brought on by codeine pills, but Stanley says there’s more to the story.

In the documentary, Stanley claims that Elvis died by suicide. Not only that, but he died by suicide because he “couldn’t take” the opportunity to be exposed to his relationships with teenage girls.

“He planned to take the drugs that killed him. The love, the pain, the pain, the exposure — he just couldn’t take it anymore,” he claimed per Page Six, adding that he “couldn’t go on” due to his fears that his alleged relationships with teenage girls are not revealed during his return to school.

Stanley added: ‘His fondness for young girls, aged 15 or 16, made me sick’, adding that it was a ‘miracle’ that Elvis hadn’t been ‘busted’. He went on to say, “He got away with things that most people didn’t, because of his money, his fortune, his fame and his power, his charisma and his its magnetism. Elvis could talk about the socks (of) you.

As many know, Elvis and his wife Priscilla began their relationship when she was 14 and he was 24. But Priscilla apparently wasn’t the only one. Author Joel Williamson claimed in his book Elvis Presley: A Life in the South that Elvis kept about three 14-year-old girls with him on tour for “pillow fights, tickles, kisses and cuddles”. Many others have alleged his relationships with teenage girls throughout his life.
