According to a family representative, Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child, died on Thursday. She was born in 1954.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must convey the heartbreaking news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement by the Associated Press. She was the most zealous, strongest, and most loving woman I’d ever known.

The Presley family is “shocked and devastated by the unexpected demise of their beloved Lisa Marie,” according to Priscilla Presley’s spokesperson Sam Mast in a statement to ABC News.

“They appreciate everyone’s love, support, and prayers and need privacy during this difficult time,” Mast said.

Earlier Thursday, Priscilla Presley announced on social media that her daughter had been transported to the hospital.

“My dear daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital,” Priscilla Presley announced before her daughter’s death was made public. “She is currently receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We request restraint because we are aware of prayers worldwide.”

Lisa Marie Presley applauded Austin Butler’s performance as Elvis Presley in the Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic “Elvis” as the best actor in a drama film at the 80th Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday in Beverly Hills, California. She attended the event with her mum.

The singer-songwriter is the only child of Priscilla Presley, an entrepreneur and actress, and Elvis Presley, a singer-actor. She got her father’s estate when she reached 25 in 1993.
