Lisa Marie Presley's Son Benjamin Keough Dies At 27
Benjamin Keough, the son of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough – and grandson of the late Elvis Presley – died Sunday in an apparent suicide. He was 27.
According to TMZ, police in Calabasas, California believe Keough died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Lisa Marie is “completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated,” according to her manager Roger Widynowski. In a statement he said: “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
Benjamin and his 31-year-old sister Riley are from Presley’s first marriage, which ended in 1994. He mostly stayed out of the spotlight and had a private Instagram account.
"“He’s doing his own thing," Lisa Marie told Huffington Post in a 2013 interview, when asked if her son was pursuing a music career. "I’m going to let him decide when he wants to go out and do what he wants to do."
Lisa Marie, 52, also has 11-year-old twins Harper and Finley with fourth husband Michael Lockwood, from whom she is currently estranged.
