He followed with how she used to take Dakota’s father to Hawaii without his siblings. “When Elvis passed away later on in life, my grandma lost it, she was drinking for weeks, wouldn’t leave her room and it was kind of a big reaction to hearing about a celebrity dying” he added

The situation and the theory intensified when the contestant revealed that his father recently took a DNA test and it showed that they were not biologically related

This was enough to clarify why his father stood out from his siblings but the truth about Elvis being his grandfather is still a mystery.

"Is some d—bag on #TheVoiceAU claiming he might be Elvis Presley's grandson. That's highly offensive to his biologically proven family. Just for his moment in the spotlight," tweeted another fan. 

The fans of the show might get some relief because Elvis Presley’s estate has issued no official response to the claim or the emails sent. 

The king had a wonderful career and some amazing stories that came with it, here are some unexpected facts about the legend.
