Burger King

Makes Offer On Elvis Presley House

... It Could Be Our Greaseland!

11/4/2013 4:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1104-elvis-estate-splash-beverly-hillsThe home of The King .. could become the home of the Whopper ... 'cause TMZ has learned the honchos at BK have made a serious offer on Elvis Presley's former Bev Hills home.

TMZ obtained a letter from Burger King Corp. to Peter Morton -- who owns the 5,367 square foot Elvis Presley Estate in the 90210 -- which states the company's intention to buy the house for a cool $3.69 mil.

The letter reads, "This would be a fast closing within three days and we would be happy to provide you with proof of funds upon request."

BK says if Morton agrees to the sale, the company will "preserve all residential historical value."

Buuuut, there are a few problems -- first, the house isn't really on the market.

Second, Morton bought the house back in December for $9.8 mil ... and there's virtually no chance he's willing to take a $6 million hit on the place.

Sidenote -- the timing of the offer is interesting, 'cause it happens to coincide with the launch of BK's new sandwich, the Big King (Big King ... King of Rock 'n Roll ... we get it).

BK wants to move fast -- really fast. In fact, BK's put a ticking clock on the offer ... it ends at midnight TONIGHT.

Sorry King, don't hold your breath.

Burger King can buy my house for $3.69 million. Elvis didn't live here, but I can put on a wig and cape if they want. I already have the huge belly.

The Big King is a copy of the Big Mac

Maybe they should buy Lady Gaga's House then.

Seeing how Elvis died of a busted gut, I think he would be proud to see his house used to serve a gut buster burger named after him.

BK should have enough money too offer a MUCH higher price...they are the biggest thieves on the planet when it come to ripping customers off via their drive thru's.

if the offer has a time limit then odds are the home of the whopper is not going to also be adding we are also home to the king of rock and roll too for no chance the house gets bought by them

Only a complete idiot would take a 6 mil $$ loss as part of a ultimatum linked to a deadline. I think that the Burger King's crown is on too tight.

There is no chance that BK will own the house.
The owner paid almost $10 million for the place and an offer of $3.69 is a joke.
This is not a serious offer.
Also, if BK did ever buy it, there is no way the City of Beverly Hills would allow a fast food place to be in that neighborhood.
Elvis' home will remain intact.
