Lisa Marie Presley has lived a varied life of ups and downs, stepping out of her famous father’s shadow.
Her journey ended with her tragic death on Thursday January 12th. The singer was found unresponsive in her bedroom and went into cardiac arrest.
After her ex-husband Danny Keough performed CPR on her, paramedics were initially able to get her heart working again, but she died hours later, according to TMZ.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Lisa’s mother, Priscilla, said in a statement.
“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,” she continued. “Thank you for the love and prayers. There will be no further comment at this time.’
The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley pursued her own celebrated musical career as a singer and released three popular albums.
She has had several high-profile romances along the way, including marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage.
She also suffered terrible heartbreak in 2020 when her son, Benjamin Keough, died by suicide.
