Elvis Presley's only child Lisa Marie Presley, whose life was full of ups and downs and who also had a music career, died on Thursday in a Los Angeles hospital, her representative told Variety. She was 54.

A family statement read that Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are stunned and grieved by the untimely passing of their darling Lisa Marie. They ask for privacy during this very hard time and say how much they appreciate everyone's love, support, and prayers.

Two days after going to the Golden Globes with her mother, Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley had a heart attack at her home in Calabasas, California, on Thursday morning. She was taken to the hospital. She received immediate medical attention after paramedics started CPR. According to TMZ, her ex-husband, Danny Keough, who lived with Presley, performed CPR before emergency personnel arrived.

On January 10, Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley went to the Golden Globes. There, they saw Austin Butler win the award for best lead actor in a drama for his role in Elvis. The family celebrated what would have been the King of Rock 'n' Roll's 88th birthday during an Elvis pre-Globes party on Sunday. She said that she is completely blown away by this movie, its impact, and Austin's accomplishments. Lisa said that she is very happy and that her dad would be really proud.

Lisa Marie is the only child of one of the most famous people in history. When she was five, her parents split up, and when she was nine, her father died. Before she joined Scientology, she used drugs for a while. She admitted to Playboy that her mother's boyfriend had inappropriate behaviour with her and that she was frequently featured in newspapers due to her brief marriages to Nicolas Cage and Michael Jackson.

Lisa Marie was born exactly nine months after Elvis Presley married the former Priscilla Beaulieu, who first met the King of Rock 'n' Roll when she was 14 years old and went on to star in a number of films and TV shows after the famous couple divorced.

After her father, grandfather, and great-grandmother passed away, she received Graceland, her father's home, as an inheritance. When she turned 25 years old, she also received Elvis Presley's entire estate. She kept Graceland, but in 2005, she sold 85% of the estate to Industrial Media. When she got it, Graceland was estimated to be worth $100 million.

"To Whom It May Concern," Lisa Marie Presley's debut album as a singer-songwriter was released in 2003. With over 500,000 units sold, it was gold-certified and produced the number-one song, "Lights Out." She co-wrote 10 songs for her second album, "Now What," including a rendition of the Ramones' "Here Today and Gone Tomorrow." Both Capitol Records albums made their debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200.


"Storm & Grace," her well-received third album, was made by roots rocker T Bone Burnett and released in 2012 by Republic Records and Simon Fuller's XIX Recordings. At Memphis' illustrious Sun Studios, where her father famously recorded, Lisa Marie Presley gave a performance of the album's lead single, "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," for promotional purposes.

Her collaborations have included a "duet" with her father on Elvis Presley's 1969 song "In the Ghetto" and a performance of "Heartbreaker" with Pat Benatar at the VH1 Divas Duets charity event.

In Sofia Coppola's upcoming movie, Priscilla, a young Emily Mitchell will play Lisa Marie Presley. The movie is based on her mother's autobiography, Elvis and Me. She also made an appearance in Michael Jackson's 1995 music video for "You Are Not Alone."

Benjamin Keough, her son, died by suicide in 2020 after shooting himself. Presley's ex-husband, Michael Lockwood, and her twins, Finley and Harper, as well as Riley Keough, are all their children. She was previously married to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson, and Nicolas Cage for a total of four years before she married Lockwood.
