No details known about the cause of death

Elvis Presley’s only child died on January 12 at the age of 54 after a medical emergency. Details on the cause of death were not initially available. Her mother, actress Priscilla Presley (77), announced her daughter’s death. “It is with a heavy heart that I share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie left us,” Priscilla shared. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I’ve ever known.”

Lisa Marie Presley’s parents’ love story made headlines around the world: Priscilla’s Stepfather was stationed in Germany, where the fateful first encounter of the then 14-year-old with the “Love Me Tender” star took place in 1959. Priscilla had to come of age and finish school before they were married in Las Vegas in May 1967. Nine months later, daughter Lisa Marie was born. The turbulent marriage lasted six years. After the divorce in 1973, neither of them remarried.

Lisa Marie was nine when her father died

Lisa Marie Presley was nine years old when her famous father died in 1977 at the age of 42. She has pursued a singing career herself and has released three studio albums, most recently Storm & Grace in 2012.

But Presley made more headlines with her private life. She was divorced four times and had four children: 14-year-old twin daughters from her fourth marriage to Michael Lockwood and daughter Riley from her first marriage to musician Danny Keough. Son Benjamin Keough took his own life in 2020 at the age of 27, and he is also in Graceland buried. Presley was also intermittently married to pop star Michael Jackson and actor Nicolas Cage. “Lisa had the most amazing laugh of anyone I’ve ever met. She brightened up every room,” Cage said after Presley’s death.
