Elvis Presley Enterprises runs a disease-infested hotel where the water is full of bacteria infiltrating guests’ lungs … according to a new lawsuit.
The company that runs all things Elvis has just been sued by Jennifer Walker, who says she stayed at the Guest House at Graceland this summer — and contracted Legionnaires’ disease during the vacay.
Walker says she spent a lot of time at the hotel pool and hot tub and started suffering symptoms of the chronic lung affliction — such as coughing, difficulty breathing and loss of appetite — and was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ later that same month.
According to the suit, a county health department investigation of the hotel — which is right next to Graceland — found the sprinkler system tested positive for Legionnella bacteria.
There have been other deaths allegedly tied to an outbreak at the hotel, and EPE is already facing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Walker is suing for negligence and wants an unspecified amount in damages. To be clear, she is not suing Elvis’ estate or the actual Graceland property.
