Singer Elvis Presley reportedly had a string of 14-year-old girlfriends while touring at the age of 22.
The shocking claim is made in a new book, Elvis Presley: A Southern Life by author Joel Williamson.
Joel claims the All Shook Up hitmaker had a group of underage lovers.
The historian says the late star used to “pillow fight, tickle, wrestle and kiss the girls,” who were sometimes just as young as 14.
He also recalls a time that the King of Rock and Roll allegedly slept with a 15-year-old fan and panicked once the condom split.
Joel claims that Elvis then asked his bandmates and crew for help before rushing the girl off to the hospital – all while he was phoning his also 15-year-old lover Dixie Locke.
Elvis met Dixie when he was 19 and the pair dated between 1952-1955, before going their separate ways after the icon met his former wife Priscilla.
They met in Bad Nauheim, Germany, while Elvis served in the US military.
The book claims that on the first night with Elvis “he made love to her in every way short of penetration. It was as if Priscilla’s virginity was another thing that Elvis strangely and sorely needed to maintain”.
After a seven-and-a-half-year courtship, the couple married in 1967.
They welcomed daughter Lisa-Marie nine months later but divorced in 1973 after a turbulent relationship, which saw the star abusing drugs on a regular basis.
The book also claims that Elvis was “obsessed with virginity” and slept with two 26-year-old self-proclaimed virgins in August 1970.
Joel adds that Elvis’ need for companionship grew stronger after his mother Gladys died.
He says in the book: “There had been a river of sex before, now there was a flood.”
