The daughter of music sensation Elvis, Lisa Marie Presley, has suddenly died at the age of 54.
Her mother Priscilla Presley, said, “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Lisa’s tragic and sad death comes after her close friend and talent manager, Jerry Schilling, was seen leaving West Hills Hospitals and Medical Center.
Schilling made sure to to thank the medical staff as he got inside his car.
The beloved daughter of Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla was rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center on Jan. 12 in California after going into cardiac arrest.
It was noted that the hospital took very good care of Lisa. Prior to being transported, EMTs were able to revive the singer-songwriter via CPR.
Hours later, she was placed in a medically induced coma and her condition was critical. Lisa Marie had “coded multiple times” after the cardiac arrest and there appeared to be no drugs on the scene.
Just days earlier, Lisa Marie attended the 2023 Golden Globes alongside her mother to support Austin Butler, who took home the award for best performance in a drama for his portrayal of her father in Baz Luhrman’s “Elvis.”
The “Lights Out” singer even broke down in tears when Butler, 31, took the stage to accept his award and said during his speech, “Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever.”
Lisa Marie had been dealing with stomach pains this week.
Lisa Marie was born in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968. She was the only child of Elvis and Priscilla.
Like her legendary father, Lisa Marie had a passion for music and put out three records of her own throughout her life including “To Whom It May Concern” in 2003, which was certified gold, “Now What” in 2005 and “Storm & Grace” in 2012.
Lisa also oversaw the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation after her father’s passing to make sure his legacy of charitable efforts continued far beyond his lifetime.
Lisa was also a mom to four children, but experienced a tragic loss nearly three years ago.
In July 2020, her son, Benjamin Keough, died by suicide due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
“The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same,” Lisa said about her son’s passing. “Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley. I know you would want that.”
Then in May 2021, Lisa Marie suffered even more loss as her divorce from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, was finalized, five years after their split.
She was also previously married to Danny Keough from 1988 to 1994, Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1996 and Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.
In June 2018, Lisa Marie then revealed that her portion of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s $100 million fortune was gone.
The “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” singer sued her former business partner for mishandling the funds and she was reportedly still in debt leading up to her death.
Aside from her twins, she is survived by her eldest daughter, 33-year-old Riley Keough.
