‘Something’s off here': Billy Bush found Lisa Marie Presley 'uneven and slow' during her last interview
CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: Billy Bush, the host of the "Extra" show is feeling "awful" and is in shock after Lisa Marie Presley's tragic death. Two days back, Bush interviewed her on the red carpet of the 80th annual Golden Globes awards.
During the interview, he noticed something off about Lisa as she appeared to be 'uneven and slow'. "It feels awful," the Extra host told People about how he felt moments after learning about Elvis Presley's only daughter Lisa's death. "I feel my heart is very heavy for pretty much anyone in pain."
Presley died on Thursday at the age of 54, reportedly after her heart stopped twice, and her family signed a do not resuscitate order. An official cause of death has not been announced yet.
Forty-eight hours before she dies, hours, Bush invited her up to the platform "which is two steps up". "I reached out with my hand to help her. She was with Jerry Schilling, her long-time family friend. He and I both grabbed her arms to bring her up and it was clear, she couldn't come up even on two flights". Bush said he had to come down on the carpet for the interview.
Bush said during the interview, she grabbed Jerry Schilling’s arm and Lisa seemed "uneven" and her speech was very slow." "Definitely when the interview was over, I turned to my producer and said something is off here," he revealed to Fox 11.
Bush continued "it was apparent, something was going on with her at that time... definitely off for sure." Bush said they were just talking about her father in the interview. “She was cognizant. She was certainly with it, just a second slow. But she was there. She was definitely there, but just a tad off in some way,” Bush added as per the New York Post.
Even though Bush thought something was off, he never expected Presley to die, and that too so soon. Talking about her father who died in a similar fashion, he said, "history repeating itself is very sad."
"Of course, you think about, yikes, is history repeating itself? Is it another situation like that?” Bush told the station show host, noting Elvis died at 42 after suffering heart problems. “Seems likely, can’t say for sure that that’s the case.” Priscilla Presley, 77, announced her daughter’s tragic death Thursday. Suffering a cardiac arrest in her Calabasas home, she was put into an induced coma on life support with a temporary pacemaker before her heart flatlined a second time, reports said.
