Lonely Elvis Reached Out To Newton In Desperate Letter

ELVIS PRESLEY gave pal WAYNE NEWTON a rare insight into his desperate state of mind just three months before he died, when he wrote the crooner a heartfelt letter.

Newton, who has the letter framed at his Las Vegas, Nevada home, admits he still gets choked up when he casts a glance at the scribbled note.

It reads, "I feel so alone sometimes. The night is quiet for me. I'd love to be able to sleep. I'm glad that everyone has gone now... Help me lord."

Newton, who befriended Elvis when the two singers realised they had dated the same woman, says, "A finer human being never took a breath of air."
