This is a very unspecific question I guess, so I understand if nobody knows.

But I remember reading about Elvis paying either the hospital or funeral bill of some other famous person...but I don't remember who. It might've been a friend of his.

Thanks :)

He may have done it for many people, he would read about a sick person or a family down their luck and send money, would do it 'anonymously', but people would find out.
He did send money to the family of Jackie Wilson. Check out the Elvis & Jeans thread, page 2

There is some suggestion he paid for some of Bobby Darin's medical treatment or funeral expenses, but not sure if this has been verified.

He also sent a cheque to Jackie Wilson's family when Jackie had his stroke in 1975.

I believe Elvis paid for Jackie Wilson's hospital bills in the 70's.

Here is two photo's.

I've never heard about that before. Thanks Getlo :notworthy

Someone somewhere has claimed he helped with actor Nick Adams final expenses also.
