Elvis Presley’s only child and Priscilla Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, died unexpectedly on Thursday. Priscilla announced in a statement to the Associated Press, confirming her devastating news. She described her adored daughter as the most courageous and caring person she had ever met.
According to Priscilla’s spokesperson Sam Mast in a statement to ABC News, the entire Presley family was in shock and sad due to this sudden death. Mast also expressed gratitude for all the love and care shown to them during this trying time.
Priscilla Presley took to social media early Thursday morning with a post about her daughter being brought to the hospital, tragically leading to the tragic ending. Lisa Marie was born in 1954 and was adored by many who now grieve her departure.
Priscilla Presley was spotted at the 80th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday night, accompanied by her adored daughter Lisa Marie. Unfortunately, just one day after the high-profile event, she made the heartbreaking statement that Lisa had been transported to the hospital and that they needed prayers from their family, friends, and admirers all over the world.
Lisa Marie Presley is Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s only child. After her father’s sudden death in 1977, she inherited his fortune at 25. She has been married four times, most recently to Nicolas Cage (2002-2004) and Michael Jackson (1994-1996).
Elvis Presley’s daughter had only kind things to say about Austin Butler’s portrayal of her father in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic “Elvis” on Tuesday evening, giving him an outstanding actor in a drama film at this year’s event. Despite her enormous success as a singer-songwriter in her own right, Lisa Marie will always be known as the daughter of two music titans who continue to inspire generations across the world.
Lisa Marie Presley married brilliant musician Danny Keough in 1988; they had a daughter named Riley and a son named Benjamin, who died in July 2020 at 27. This tragedy was complicated for Presley, who took to Instagram shortly after her son’s death to express her anguish. She said in her heartbreaking message that navigating through this unbearable sorrow has completely crushed her heart and soul into little bits.
Riley Keough is an internationally famous actress who will be featured in the film “Zola” soon. Many in the film business have commended her remarkable talent, indicating that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! She also won the Caméra d’Or at Cannes Film Festival in 2022 for her directorial debut “War Pony.”
Lisa Marie Presley married Michael Lockwood in 2006 after a brief courtship. The couple divorced in July 2021 after nearly 15 years together and have two daughters, Harper and Finley, fraternal twins. It was her longest-lasting marriage.
Her father’s legendary music career always inspired Presley, and she has followed in his footsteps with all of her studio recordings. In 2003, she released “To Whom It May Concern,” which included the track “Savior,” which she co-wrote with Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan. Following its critical success, she released “What Now” in 2005 and “Storm & Grace” in 2012, displaying her innate songwriting talent. As a tribute to Elvis, she included some of his original compositions on each album.
Lisa Marie Presley was determined to build a reputation for herself outside of her renowned father’s legacy, and she accomplished this through the many musical styles present on each record. Her inspirational words paired with catchy riffs helped her earn a global reputation as a great musician rather than just Elvis’ daughter.
