After a cardiac arrest at home Thursday, the singer-songwriter, the couple’s only child, was hospitalized. Family members say, Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, has passed away. She was 54 years old.
Priscilla Presley told The Associated Press that she was deeply saddened to hear that Lisa Marie had passed away. Knowing such a passionate, strong, and loving woman was an honor.
Just two days earlier, Presley attended the Golden Globe Awards, where Austin Butler received Best Actor in a Motion Picture award for his portrayal of her father. She is survived by her mother and three children, including actor Riley Keough. In 2020, her son Benjamin Keough passed away. Due to the family’s “profound loss,” she requested privacy.
She has released three studio albums throughout her career, most recently “Storm & Grace” in 2012. In Memphis, Tennessee, where her father kicked off his legendary music career, she has also been recognized for her charitable work on homelessness and literacy.
The birth of Elvis Presley happened precisely nine months after the wedding of Elvis and Priscilla. When she was four years old, her parents divorced, and she moved to Los Angeles with her mother. In 1977, Elvis Presley passed away.
She told “Good Morning America” in 2007 that he would wake her up in the middle of the night to sing. “I remember him as my father, but I remember him as an inspiring father.”
Elvis Presley was married four times during her lifetime: first to musician Danny Keough and then to pop star Michael Jackson. Later, she married actor Nicolas Cage and guitarist Michael Lockwood.
