Lisa Marie Presley, only child of Elvis Presley and former wife of Michael Jackson, dead at 54 after cardiac arrest
Lisa Marie Presley has died at a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest on Thursday January 12. She was 54.
The daughter of Elvis Presley collapsed in her Calabasas, Los Angeles home after her heart stopped suddenly on Thursday morning.
According to an earlier report by TMZ, Presley initially regained a pulse after first responders performed CPR, and her ex-husband Danny Keough reportedly administered CPR until medical professionals took over.
She suffered a “full arrest” and was given epinephrine.
“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital,” Priscilla Presley wrote on Instagram.
“She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers.”
The cardiac arrest occurred after Presley attended Tuesday night’s Golden Globe Awards, where Austin Butler won best actor in a drama film for his portrayal of her father in Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis.”
Butler dedicated part of his acceptance speech to Presley and her mother, who was also in attendance at the awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me,” Butler said. “Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever.”
Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley, was also a singer-songwriter who released three albums between 2003 and 2012. She married pop singer Michael Jackson in 1994 and divorced him two years later.
Michael Jackson died in 2009.
Her only son died by suicide in July 2020 at age 27.
“My and my three daughters’ lives as we knew it were completely detonated and destroyed by his death,” she wrote in a People essay marking National Grief Awareness Day on Aug. 30. “We live in this every. Single. Day.”
Presley had Riley and Ben with ex Danny Keough and twin daughters Finley and Harper from her former marriage to Michael Lockwood.
