How did Lisa Marie Presley die? Elvis Presley's only daughter dies at 54, reveals mom Priscilla in touching note
LOS ANGELES, CALIFONIA: In one of the most devastating news coming from the entertainment world, Lisa Marie Presley, singer-songwriter and daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, has died after suffering a “full cardiac arrest”. She was 54. The news of her death was confirmed by Lisa’s mother in a heartbreaking statement that shocked everyone.
The news of her death comes a few hours after it was announced that Lisa was taken to the hospital after a possible cardiac arrest on January 12, just two days after she attended this year’s Golden Globes. The singer-songwriter was really happy when Austin Butler won the Best Actor accolade for playing Elvis Presley in the movie ‘Elvis’. Butler went on to thank Lisa and Priscilla for allowing him to embody such an icon for the movie.
In the statement shared by Priscilla, she noted that her daughter was the most “passionate, strong, and loving woman” she ever knew and thanked everyone who kept on praying for Lisa’s good health. Priscilla also requested “privacy” as they deal with this devastating loss.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. 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. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment,” the statement read (via People).
Born on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Lisa was born exactly nine months after Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding and moved to Los Angeles with her mother after her parents got divorced. The King of Rock n Roll died in 1977 and Lisa was the joint heir to the Presley estate alongside her grandfather and great-grandmother. However, when the aforementioned people died, Lisa was the only heir to the estate and also took possession of Elvis’ Graceland residence.
In 1994, Lisa married Michael Jackson just one month after getting legally separated from her first husband, Danny Keough. She was deeply in love with him and always wanted to raise a family with him. However, just two years after they got hitched, the couple announced that they are divorcing each other.
As a singer-songwriter, she produced three studio albums in her professional career. In 2003, she came out with her first album titled ‘To Whom It May Concern’, which went on to become really successful and sold more than 500,000 copies in the United States. ‘So What’ (2005) and ‘Storm & Grace’ are the other two albums that she released in her career.
