Lisa Marie Presley Dead At 54

Lisa Marie Presley's estranged husband is using her son's death to argue for child custody of the pair's daughters.

Heartbreaking news… Lisa Marie Presley has passed away at the age of 54.

The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley was rushed to the hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest on Thursday. Sadly she did not pull through.

Priscilla confirmed the news in a statement to People, saying:

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.”

She continued:

“She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”

Another terrible loss for a family who has seen their share.

Everyone knows Elvis was taken far too young at only 42 years old — when Lisa Marie was only 9. But sadly that was not the last premature loss for the Presleys. In June 2020 Lisa Marie’s son Benjamin Keough, whom she shared with her first husband Danny Keough, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a party. He was only 27. Benjamin’s sudden passing left Lisa Marie “beyond devastated”; according to a source at the time, she was only holding things together for eldest daughter Riley Keough and her young twins, Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood. Last August she penned an essay for People about the loss, writing:

“Death is part of life whether we like it or not — and so is grieving. There is so much to learn and understand on the subject, but here’s what I know so far: One is that grief does not stop or go away in any sense, a year, or years after the loss. Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period…

It’s a real choice to keep going, one that I have to make every single day and one that is constantly challenging to say the least … But I keep going for my girls. I keep going because my son made it very clear in his final moments that taking care of his little sisters and looking out for them were on the forefront of his concerns and his mind. He absolutely adored them and they him.”

Even more crushing to read now…

Lisa Marie Presley followed after her father. As a musician she released three albums throughout her life. However, as a celebrity from the time of her birth she was always better known for her personal life — and eventually some very high-profile relationships. She was married to Michael Jackson and shortly after to Nicolas Cage. She followed those with a turbulent marriage to Michael Lockwood. Danny was the only one she remained close with as they raised their children together.

We are sending all the love to her family in this unimaginably hard time…
