Lisa Marie Presley’s unrelenting grief after son’s tragic suicide at age 27

Lisa Marie Presley has died, aged 54, after suffering a cardiac arrest.

It's yet another tragedy to hit the Presley family, after the death of the iconic Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie's father, in 1977 aged 42.

Decades later, Lisa Marie's son, Benjamin Keough, took his own life aged just 27 in 2020.

Lisa Marie was open about her struggles with grief after her son's death, and in 2022, just months before her untimely death, she penned a searingly honest essay.

In the essay, published by People magazine, Lisa Marie wrote: "I can understand why people may want to avoid you once a terrible tragedy has struck. Especially a parent losing their child because it is truly your worst nightmare."

"I can recall a couple of times in my life where I knew parents who lost their child and while I could be there for them when it happened, I avoided them after and never bothered to follow up with them because they quite literally became a representative of my biggest fear,' she wrote.

"I also low-key judged them, and I swore I'd never do whatever it was that I felt they either did or neglected in their parental actions and choices with their child."

she added that her twins, who are now 14, keep her going and explained "my son made it very clear in his final moments that taking care of his little sisters and looking out for them were on the forefront of his concerns and his mind."

Lisa Marie's mother, Priscilla, sadly confirmed her daughter's death from cardiac arrest in the early hours of Friday morning, as she released a heartfelt statement.

The statement read: "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. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss," Priscilla continued. "Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment."

Lisa Marie was the only child of legendary icon Elvis Presley and his wife of six years, Priscilla. The couple were in a relationship for 13 year and married from 1967 to 1973.

Singer, Lisa Marie, was married four times, first to musician Danny Keough, with whom she shared actress daughter Riley Keough, 33, and late son Benjamin.

She then wed singer Michael Jackson, actor Nicolas Cage, and music producer Michael Lockwood, with whom she shared 14-year-old twin daughters Harper and Finley.
