The passing of Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of ‘The King of Rock and Roll,’ Elvis Presley, shocked millions.
Her life was cut short at the age of 54. The singer-songwriter suffered cardiac arrest on January 12, after she was transferred to the hospital where she was placed in induced coma. Unfortunately, she didn’t make it.
The news of her tragic passing was shared by her mother Priscilla Presley. “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Presley’s three daughters have been left devastated by their mother’s loss, and now her eldest daughter, actress Riley Keough, paid lovely tribute to her late mother in the most touching way imaginable.
Riley shared an old photo of Lisa Marie posing next to Riley’s father while holding baby Riley in her arms.
“Lucky to have had the best and most deeply loving mama I could have asked for,” Riley wrote in the caption.
This was the first Mother’s Day that Riley, who is now also a mother herself, spent without her mom.
Riley and husband Ben Smith-Petersen welcomed their first child in 2022.
Previously, Riley paid tribute to her late mother on the day Lisa Marie was laid to rest at Graceland next to her late father, Elvis Presley, and her son Benjamin Keough who died of suicide in 2020. Peterson shared Riley’s words on her behalf and said, “I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters. Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humor, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity. I’m a product of your heart, my sisters are a product of your heart, my brother is a product of your heart.”
Riley and Ben have been married since 2014. The couple met during the filming of Mad Max: Furry Road.
