Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child, died at 54.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must convey the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla, said in a statement.
“I’ve never met someone as passionate, strong, and loving as she was. We ask for privacy as we cope with this sad loss. Thank you for your prayers and consideration. There will be no further discussion at this time.”
Lisa Marie and her mother Priscilla had just returned from the Golden Globes, where Austin Butler had won best actor for his portrayal of Elvis in the matching Baz Luhrmann film. During his award speech, Lisa Marie sobbed as he thanked the family for their help.
Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child with his wife Priscilla, was born in 1968. She followed in her mother’s footsteps by releasing three albums, the first of which was released in 2003.
She was married to famous musicians Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, as well as Nicolas Cage and Danny Keough.
The mother-of-four was rushed to the hospital on Thursday morning but died later that day.
According to a TMZ report released earlier in the day, the 54-year-old was discovered lifeless in her bedroom in her Calabasas home. She was placed in an induced coma and was fitted with a temporary pacemaker. Her housekeeper, according to sources, discovered her. Lisa Marie’s ex-husband Danny, with whom she still shared a home, immediately began CPR until paramedics arrived.
She had four children, with the middle one, Benjamin Keough, her second child with Danny, committing suicide at 28 in 2020. The mother was 51 at the time.
Riley Keough, his older sister, is 33 years old and will play Daisy Jones in a forthcoming television series based on Taylor Jenkins-bestselling Reid’s novel Daisy Jones and The Six.
Finley Harper and Aaron Love Lockwood Lisa’s children are twins Vivienne Ann Lockwood, 14. Their father is Michael Lockwood, the singer’s ex-husband who married Rihanna from 2006 to 2016.
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita, who both worked on the Elvis biography, acknowledged Lisa’s “eloquent” depiction of her father and “what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her father” in a lengthy statement.
Rita described Lisa Marie as “extremely honest and straightforward, vulnerable, and in a state of anticipation about the film.”
“She made Graceland feel like home to us by showing us around individually.”
“Lisa baby girl, I’m sorry,” John Travolta tweeted. “Although I’ll miss you, I’m sure I’ll see you again. I’m sending my love to Riley, Priscilla, Harper, and Finley.”
Donnatella Versace wrote with a photo of herself and Lisa Marie, “I will never forget the times we spent together.” “Your beauty and kindness shone brilliantly. Rest in peace, Lisa Marie. We will never forget you.”
Lisa Marie was described as “one of a kind, funny as [expletive], clever as a whip, sensitive, talented, witty, cruel, kind, generous, judgmental but always right, loyal, and you adored your children” by the singer Pink in a statement that broke her heart.
