Elvis fired a GUN at Ginger in BED and gave Priscilla a black eye: The horrifying reason

Elvis not only fired a gun at Ginger while she was in bed, but he also shot the toilet and numerous televisions. Ginger and Priscilla both talk about The King’s obsession with guns, control and power – and the dangerous way they mixed with his explosive temper. The most terrifying part of all is the reason why he fired his guns in the house. Almost always for the most ridiculous reasons.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Priscila was asked about Elvis’ notorious hair-trigger anger issues.

She said: “He did have a temper. He did. It was unpredictable. His temper was always bursts of frustration but I think because he had the power and money to destroy, he could just replace it like that.”

She is referring to the things he habitually shot at and destroyed – in particular televisions. Apparently, Elvis would regularly shoot the TV if it was showing someone he didn’t like.

Priscilla added: “He’d just blow them off the air. It was that simple and the television was replaced just like that. He had a love of guns and he had a collection of guns. I guess it was another way of feeling that power.”

But Elvis also expressed his anger in more physical ways.

In her book, Elvis & Me, Priscilla described how he gave her a black eye or threw a chair at her because she hadn’t liked a song he’d sung.

The music legend never mastered his temper and the last woman in his life, Ginger Alden, also described chilling scenes.

In particular, one night when she was asleep in bed at Graceland and the deafening boom of a gun being fired woke her up.

In her book, Elvis and Ginger, she wrote: “I bolted upright and saw Elvis standing at the foot of the bed, holding a 57 Magnum pistol in his hand.

“I risked a glance behind me and saw a bullet hole in the wall above the headboard. I looked back at Elvis, trying to wrap my mind around the idea that he really had just shot a hole in the wall.

“By way of explanation, Elvis said he had asked for yoghurt again and I hadn’t responded. ‘It was an attention-getter,’ he said.”

Ginger described how she was “in shock and extremely hurt” by this but also accepted his apology, sensing “on a deep level, that Elvis honestly was sorry.”

Yet, soon afterwards, Elvis was so enraged by a running toilet in his bathroom that he “blasted it to smithereens.” Terrifyingly, Ginger described the weapon he used as a “machine gun.”

Angry and afraid, Ginger ran out of the house and home to her mother. Once again, Elvis was remorseful and she went back to him. 

In March 1977, months before his death, Elvis laid hands on Ginger.

They were on holiday in Hawaii and having an argument. When Ginger walked into another room, Elvis followed her and “Slapped her on the side of her body.”

In her book, Ginger wrote: “‘No-one ever walks out on me when I’m talking,’ he said. The dark mood had transformed Elvis into someone I didn’t recognize.”

Yet Ginger stayed with him until the end. Like Priscilla, she also described a troubled man, struggling under the weight of huge pressure and an extreme drug habit.

Priscilla said: “He would have low points and there was nothing could get him out of it…  Elvis felt the pills could get him out of that. He went through an awful lot. A lot was expected of him, a lot of demands were put on him.  He didn’t know how to deal with it any other way. He really thought he had it under control.”
