Update: Lisa Marie Presley dies at 54
(ABC News/Associated Press) — “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement obtained by the AP.
“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Lisa Marie Presley was rushed to the hospital on Thursday. According to her mother Priscilla Presley said in a statement shared on Facebook.
“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital,” Presley said. “She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time.”
Just hours later reports began to surface of her death.
Presley attended the 80th Golden Globes on Tuesday in Beverly Hills, California, where she celebrated actor Austin Butler after he won the award for best actor in a motion picture (drama) for his role as Elvis in the Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic. She attended the ceremony with her mother.
The singer and songwriter is the only child of singer and actor Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley. She inherited her father’s estate in 1993 on her 25th birthday.
Presley has been married four times, including her marriage to the late pop star Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1996 and actor Nicolas Cage from 2002 to 2004.
In 1988, she married musician Danny Keough, and had Riley and Benjamin with him. Benjamin died by suicide at age 27 in July 2020.
Last year, amid the buzz around Baz Luhrmann’s film “Elvis,” she shared an update about how she has been coping since her son’s death.
“I am and will forever be mourning the loss of my son,” she wrote. “Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed and shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole.”
