Elvis Presley's only child, Lisa Marie, dies at 54
LOS ANGELES - Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child whose tumultuous life also included a music career, died Thursday, her representative confirmed to Variety. She was 54.
“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” reads a family statement. “They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
Presley was hospitalized Thursday morning after suffering cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, Calif., just two days after she attended the Golden Globes with her mother Priscilla Presley. She was rushed to a hospital after paramedics performed CPR. Her ex-husband, Danny Keough, had been living with Presley and administered CPR before paramedics arrived, according to TMZ.
Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley were at the Golden Globes on Jan. 10 to see Austin Butler win the Golden Globe for his starring role in “Elvis” as best lead actor in a drama. They also attended a pre-Globes party on Sunday for “Elvis,” where the family honored what would have been the King of Rock ‘n Roll’s 88th birthday. “I am so overwhelmed by this film and the effect that it’s had and what Austin’s done. I’m so proud. I know that my father would also be very proud,” Lisa Marie said at the event.
Her daughter, Riley Keough, has starred in films like “Zola,” “The Devil All the Time” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
As the only child of one of the most famous people in the world, Lisa Marie Presley dealt with her parents’ divorce at age 5, her father’s death at age 9, and a stretch of drug use before she embraced Scientology. She told Playboy her mother’s boyfriend had been inappropriate with her, and was a constant fixture in the tabloids for her marriages to Michael Jackson and a much shorter one to Nicolas Cage.
