CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: Lisa Marie Presley's daughter Riley Keough shared a beautiful photo from her childhood that showed herself with her mom, a week after she died suffering a 'full cardiac arrest' at the age of 54. She posted a throwback picture of her mother affectionately looking at Keough while she holding flowers, and looking back at her mom with a smile on her face.
Keough, 33, the oldest child of Presley captioned the heartbreaking post on Instagram with a red heart emoji. It is the first time she has broken her silence after her mother's tragic death on January 12, 2023. In a statement, Priscilla Presley, 77, Lisa's mother and wife of Elvis Presley said, “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,” according to Page Six.
At the family's Graceland estate, the late singer was laid to rest ahead of a celebration of life service on Sunday, January 22, at 9.00 am. Across her father's burial plot, Presley was buried next to her son, Benjamin Keough who died by suicide in 2020.
While she was alive, the songwriter feared her own mortality as she was traumatized at the age of nine when her father Elvis died, according to Daily Mail. In 2003, she told Playboy about her fear of death by saying, "How many people have a family grave in the backyard? How many people are reminded of their fate, of their mortality, every f**king day? All the graves are lined up and there's a spot there, waiting for me, right next to my grandmother."
Following Keough's loss, fans have come to the estate's front gate and placed flowers, honoring the singer. The website of the Graceland read, "In lieu of flowers, the family encourages all who wish to send something to do so in the form of a donation to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation."
After suffering from cardiac arrest twice on January 12, Presley's family signed a "do not resuscitate" order. On Thursday morning, she was shifted to a hospital from her Calabasas home immediately after her housekeeper found her collapsed, and EMTs managed to revive her. Though she regained a pulse while she was revived, Presley was brain-dead by the time she was taken to the hospital, as per a Daily Mail report.
Presley's family who rushed to the hospital, signed the "do not resuscitate" order when they learned that she was already brain dead. She was in an induced come and on life support at the facility. At the hospital, Priscilla stayed beside her daughter's bedside. Presley died after she suffered a second cardiac arrest.
