Lisa Marie Presley, musician and only daughter of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, died yesterday after being rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital, her mother Priscilla said, Reuters reported, citing BTA.
“It is with a heavy heart that I have to share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I know. We ask that we not be disturbed as we try cope with this profound loss,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement.
Lisa Marie Presley, 54, suffered a cardiac arrest at her home in the Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas, according to TMZ. She was then rushed to hospital.
Lisa Marie was born in 1968 and was the owner of the Graceland mansion in Memphis, which is a popular tourist attraction. She was nine years old when Elvis died at Graceland in 1977.
Lisa Marie’s music career began with her 2003 debut album, To Whom It May Concern, followed by 2005’s Now What, both of which reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart.
The third album, Storm and Grace, was released in 2012.
Lisa Marie has been married four times. She married pop star Michael Jackson in 1994, just 20 days after divorcing her first husband, musician Danny Keough. The famous couple divorced in 1996 as Jackson battled allegations of child molestation.
Presley married actor Nicolas Cage, a big fan of her father, in 2002. Cage filed for divorce four months later.
Her fourth marriage is to her guitarist and music producer
Michael Lockwood. Their divorce was finalized in 2021.
Lisa Marie had four children. Her only son, Benjamin Keough, died in 2020 aged 27. Daughter Riley Keough, 33, is an actress. Her other two daughters are 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley Lockwood.
