The images, generated by DALL-E 2 AI, show what the "King of Rock & Roll" would look like at 88. In the photos, he appears a bit slimmer than he was in his final years.

Perhaps shockingly, Presley is shown in the images still having a full head of dark hair, just with some streaks of gray.

The images, reported by the Daily Star, also show Presley with visible wrinkles, including slight owls as his mouth sits open. His stained blue-and-yellow teeth are also visible.

Presley died in August 1977 from hypertensive cardiovascular disease. He was found unresponsive in the bathroom of his Graceland mansion. According to reports, he had been constipated for four months.

One expert suggested that the "strain of attempting to defecate" compressed his abdominal aorta, leading to his heart shutting down, the Daily Star reported.

Presley was known to have a bad diet in which he often binged on fast food such as cheeseburgers while locked in his room. Other issues Presley suffered from were vertigo, back pain, insomnia and eye infections.

In fact, the King of Rock & Roll had to be taken to the hospital while in a semi-coma in 1973 after suffering from severe respiratory distress.

In addition, Presley suffered from hepatitis and a bleeding ulcer.

All the health issues made life difficult for the musician leading up to his death. It's reported Elvis required a full-time nurse and allegedly would not take a bath for the whole year of 1975, causing sores all over his body.

Then, in 1976, Elvis tripped over a television cord, hit his head and was knocked out after hitting the edge of a bathtub.

Ginger Alden, Elvis' girlfriend at the time, described finding him with his pajama bottoms around his ankles and his back side in the air.

“His arms lay on the ground, close to his sides, palms facing upward," she said. “It was clear that, from the moment he landed on the floor, Elvis hadn’t moved. I gently turned his face toward me. A hint of air expelled from his nose. “The tip of his tongue was clenched between his teeth and his face was blotchy. I gently raised one eyelid. His eye was staring straight ahead and blood red.”

According to the Daily Star, toxicology reports identified 14 kinds of drugs in Presley's system when he died.

Other AI companies have done renditions of other celebrities including Michael Jackson and even what characters from The Simpsons would look like as real people.
