“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley, her mother, said in a media statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

According to TMZ, which first broke the story, Lisa Marie was found unresponsive by her housekeeper in her bedroom this morning. Her ex-husband, Danny Keough – with whom she still lives – had just returned home from driving their children to school. So he administered CPR until paramedics took over.

Arriving at 10:43 a.m., the paramedics could not find a pulse, according to TMZ‘s report, but were able to restore it by administering at least one epinephrine shot before rushing her to a nearby hospital. After she arrived, a temporary pacemaker was implanted and a coma induced, but it was too late.

TMZ quoted unnamed sources claiming that Lisa Marie had complained earlier Thursday morning of stomach pains that grew increasingly intense. “The sources wanted to make clear … this was NOT a suicide attempt,” TMZ reported.

One Presley Tragedy After Another

Lisa Marie is survived by her mother, her ex-husband Danny Keough, and their three children, including actress Riley Keough. A fourth, their son Benjamin, died by suicide in 2020.

The singer-songwriter, who released three albums of original music during her lifetime, was the sole heir to the Elvis fortune, which includes Graceland, Elvis’ famous Memphis mansion. She also owned and operated the lucrative Elvis Presley Enterprises until 2005, when she sold it off.

Elvis Presley died in Graceland in 1977 of a heart attack, which was most likely brought on by his addiction to prescription drugs.

This latest Presley family tragedy comes only two days after Lisa Marie, along with Priscilla, attended the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills to cheer on actor Austin Butler. He won the Best Actor for a Drama Motion Picture Award for playing the lead in the 2022 movie Elvis.

It seemed like a joyous way to cap off a week that began by celebrating what would have been Elvis’ 88th birthday on Sunday.
