Yesterday, tragedy struck the Presley family once again. Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 54. We are absolutely devastated.
Lisa Marie was found unresponsive by her housekeeper yesterday morning after she suffered a cardiac arrest. She was rushed to the hospital where she was confirmed dead later the same day.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Lisa Marie was Elvis’s only child. Though she was only nine years old when The King passed away in 1977, she still shared her father’s same love of music and zest for life. Lisa Marie perused a career in music and songwriting as well, which would have surely made her dad proud. Sadly, Lisa Marie’s only son Benjamin Keough died by suicide in 2020 at the age of 27, and she stated about her grief that she had, “been living in the horrific reality of its unrelenting grips since my son’s death two years ago.” We take comfort knowing Lisa Marie is now reunited with her son and her father.
This news comes as such a shock to us, along with the rest of the world. We cannot imagine what the Presley family is going through, but we send all of our love to everyone affected by the death of Lisa Marie.
