Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, died Thursday at the age of 54.

Representatives for Priscilla Presley confirmed her daughter’s death to CBS News.

“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” PR Priscilla Presley said in a statement to CBS News. “They are so grateful for everyone’s support, love and prayers and ask for privacy at this very difficult time.”

The announcement of Presley’s death came just hours after he was rushed to hospital after suffering a heart attack at his home in Calabasas, California.

“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie has been taken to the hospital. He is now receiving the best possible care,” Priscilla Presley wrote on Facebook Thursday. “Please keep him and our family in your prayers. We are feeling the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time.”
Like his late father, Presley is a singer-songwriter and released three albums between 2003 and 2012.

Presley has been married four times. She and her first husband, Danny Keough, had two children: daughter Riley – an actress who appeared in films such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Lugan Lucky – and son Benjamin, who died by suicide in 2020. Keough and Presley divorced in 1994 after five and a half years of marriage. Presley married Michael Jackson three weeks later, but the couple divorced in 1996.

Presley’s next marriage was in August 2002 to actor Nicolas Cage. The couple immediately filed for divorce in November 2002, but the separation was not finalized until 2004.

In 2006 she married her music producer Michael Lockwood. With Lockwood, Presley welcomed two more children, twins Harper Vivienne and Finley Aaron. In 2016, Presley filed for divorce. The divorce was finalized in 2021.
He was most recently seen in public at Tuesday’s Golden Globe Awards, where he and Priscilla Presley watched Austin Butler accept the Best Actor award for his star-studded performance as Elvis in the 2022 Baz Luhrmann biopic.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday’s red carpet, she called Butler’s performance “amazing” and “authentic”.

“I can’t even explain what it means,” he said.

Lisa Marie Presley’s death came less than a week after Elvis Presley’s 88th birthday.

“When the first record came out I didn’t think [the tabloids] liked it very well and when I did my first tour they started a whole campaign imagining I was losing weight, I was gaining weight, that I was unhappy. That I was making myself hysterical because bad ticket sales,” he said in 2005.
“They tried to make me look like I lost but instead and I realized that in the end they were trying to make me look like what happened to my father.”

As she grew as a player, however, Ms. Presley developed a bluesy and smoky style that won critical acclaim and nods from Elvis fans for many songs that explored the intensity of public concern and his memories of his father, who died when he died was 9

“Someone turned out the lights out there in Memphis,” he sings in Lights Out (2003). “My family is buried and gone.” In another 2003 song, “No One Noticed,” he wonders if his father’s old entourage was enough to save “King” in his final tragic fall from drugs and other abuse to save his health. many years.

In August 2007, on the 30th anniversary of her father’s death, Ms. Presley released a “duet” of his 1969 single “In the Ghetto”, in which he added his vocals to the original song. He said he rarely cries when he remembers his father, but he said he was “lost” when he heard the two voices of them together.
“Presley dealt with the devil of high expectations with grace,” wrote Washington Post reviewer Richard Harrington in 2003.

His life outside of music, however, often carries a sense of the relentless pursuit. She has been married four times, including two years to Jackson from 1994 to 1996. She recently walked out of court on child abuse charges in a deal that her lawyers say she has not pleaded guilty to. “I want to save her,” he said. “I feel like I can do that.”

A 1999 headline in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution called Ms. Presley as the “strange but real princess”.
Lisa Marie Presley was born in Memphis on February 1, 1968 – exactly nine months after her parents’ wedding.

Early on, Mrs Presley’s golden childhood began a continuation of the Elvis legend of Graceland as a sort of Xanadu of the Delta. His father did not disappoint fans. As Priscilla Presley recounted in her 1985 memoir Elvis and Me, by the age of four, Mrs Presley was already a master at manipulating employees.
“I’ll tell Dad and they’ll fire you,” Priscilla Presley quoted her daughter as saying.

For his fifth birthday, his father bought him a wind turbine. At the age of 8, she received a fur coat and a diamond ring, the memoirs say.

He once told his father that he had never seen snow. They boarded a jet and flew to Idaho where they played in the snow for half an hour and flew home.

“All I know is he looks up to me,” said Ms. Presley. “I wasn’t like, ‘Ooh I’m going to fly’ or anything like that. I never found it weird or out of the ordinary. All I knew was that he was crazy about me and only he showed me his love. He just did what he had in his heart.”

In November 1975, his father named one of his private jets, a converted Convair 880 jet, The Lisa Marie for touring use.
After her parents divorced, Ms. Presley lived with his mother in Los Angeles but visited Graceland frequently. Mrs Presley was at the estate when her father died in 1977. She remembers kissing him hours before he passed out.

“I just had a hunch,” she told Rolling Stone in 2003. “He wasn’t well. All I know is that I had it (the feeling) and it happened. I was obsessed with death from a young age.

On the death of her father, Mrs Presley became co-heir to her estate along with her grandparents. In 1993, he inherited $100 million worth of everything.

He sold most of the property in 2004, but maintains his Elvis Presley charitable foundation and helps with other relief programs, including raising money for people in New Orleans displaced by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
In 1988, when she was 20 years old, she married musician Danny Keough, and less than a month after their 1994 divorce, she married Jackson in a private ceremony in the Dominican Republic. She filed for divorce in 1996 but later said she and Jackson had considered reconciliation for years after their marriage ended.

In 2000, she met actor Cage at a party and married him two years later; The marriage soon broke up. In January 2006, she married guitarist Michael Lockwood in Japan. Her first husband, Keough, served as best man. In 2016, Ms. Presley filed for divorce from Lockwood.

“It’s part of the problem in my love life,” he once said of his marriage. “I was looking for someone like [my dad] and no one could compare. He was such a presence – not even as an artist, just as a person. Yes he sings well and yes the songs are great but that’s him coming through the music. He was larger than life – and still is.”
Ms Presley has one daughter, actress Riley Keough, from her marriage to Keough and twin daughters from her marriage to Lockwood. One son, Benjamin Storm Keough, died in 2020 from a gunshot wound that the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled a suicide.

“I have been dealing with death, grief and loss since I was 9 years old. I have had more than my fair share of life and somehow I got here,” he wrote in an essay shared with People magazine.

Lisa Marie Presley was a former Scientologist but later cut ties with the group.

On Tuesday, Ms. Presley attended the Golden Globes, where Austin Butler won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his role as his father in “Elvis.”

“I really didn’t know what to do with myself after seeing it,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “It took about five days to process because it’s so amazing and so accurate and so authentic that I can’t even explain what it means.”
He was at Graceland on Sunday to celebrate his father’s 88th birthday.
Some of Ms.’s songs Presley seemed to spoil his difficult relationships, such as “Sinking in” (2003) and “Indifferent” (2003). Elsewhere, he was eyeing the non-stop stares of the leading media. In 2005, he covered Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry” with the chorus: “Kick ’em when they’re up/Kick ’em when they’re down”.

“That song wasn’t just an attack on the tabloids, to be honest,” he said. “What is our entertainment? Our entertainment — whether it’s reality shows or people dying or putting cameras in people’s faces — is when something tragic happens.
