According to family sources, Riley Keough will go to Graceland, her late grandfather’s renowned Memphis home, on Sunday to pay tribute to her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, along with her 14-year-old twin sisters and grandmother Priscilla. The talented actress and director, 33, has spent the last year promoting the popular movie “Elvis,” which was made by Baz Luhrman and starred Austin Butler. The mother and daughter were seen there together honoring Elvis Presley’s 88th birthday just four days before Lisa Marie passed away.
Riley and her mother reportedly sat “arm in arm” at Elvis’ favorite table, according to Bobby Green, the restaurant’s owner.
In the past 2.5 years, Riley Keough, the actress from “The Terminal List,” lost both her brother Benjamin Keough and her mother Lisa Marie Presley. Here is a glimpse into her daily activities. Green said, “The only time they weren’t together was when Austin sat between them, his arm across both. With Austin and Baz, there was such a wonderful sense of family. “.
Green continued, “We had high expectations for the upcoming awards season. Riley and the twins Finley and Harper were left behind when Lisa Marie Presley passed away on January 13.
The loss of Lisa Marie has complicated Riley and the family’s Oscar nominations.
Only 2.5 years had passed since Benjamin, Lisa Marie’s 27-year-old son, committed suicide before she passed away on January 12 from a cardiac arrest. The children of Lisa Marie and Danny Keough, Riley, and Michael were particularly close. Riley later honored her brother by getting his name tattooed on her collarbone and preparing to become a death doula with the intention of providing support and comfort to those who are dying and their families. With appearances in “The Terminal List,” “The Girlfriend Experience,” and the movie “Zola,” Riley has recently established a successful Hollywood career. At the Cannes Film Festival last year, “War Pony,” a movie she co-directed, took home the coveted Camera d’Or for a best first feature.
The eagerly awaited Amazon adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s best-selling book “Daisy Jones and The Six,” which is set to air soon, will star Riley as a free-spirited ’70s singer. She described how her mother gave her the idea for the project. “I was raised with a person who followed their own path and didn’t give a damn what people thought. She undoubtedly had an impact on me, Riley said.
Riley was raised in Scientology by her mother and father, Danny, who is regarded as church royalty in particular ways because his stepmother Karen Hollander served as the head of the organization’s International Celebrity Center in Los Angeles.
Riley revealed in 2017 that her father does not, however, live a life of luxury. “I had a wonderful upbringing thanks to my mother, but my father did not. And I think it has been advantageous to have been on both sides. She added that Danny, a musician who has resided in Hawaii and Los Angeles, had mattresses on the floors of his apartments.
He stayed in cabins and trailer parks. He wasn’t wealthy. When I was about eight years old, I told him, “I want to grow up and be poor like you!” He was munching cereal at the time. Riley and her mother lived in Southern California, including at Neverland Ranch during Lisa Marie’s 1994–1996 marriage to Michael Jackson and at the Scientology headquarters in Clearwater, Florida.
me. me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. I me. Lisa Marie, on the other hand, is said to have left the church in 2012 following a dispute with the church’s leader, David Miscavige, of the Scientology religion.
Prior to “blowing” the church in 2007, Mike Rinder was one of the top three Scientology officials. He claimed Lisa Marie and her kids eventually came around to the religion. There is no clear-cut solution, Rinder told Page Six. “Priscilla is the only person who has never faltered. “Rinder claimed to have spent a lot of time with Lisa Marie at her Los Angeles residence and helped her leak information about how Miscavige had private investigators hunt down his father, Ron, to the Los Angeles Times in 2015.
According to Rinder, author of “A Billion Years: My Exodus from Life in the Top Ranks of Scientology,” “She contacted me from Nashville during the Ron Miscavige fiasco. “All of a sudden, [Lisa Marie] said, Riley’s here and wants to talk to you,” Rinder said. “Riley called me and said, “I want you to take those f-kers down. Riley supported her mother because Lisa Marie was so unhappy, he said of the 25-year-old.
If Riley left Scientology as a result of this is a question Rinder is unsure of. He said, “It’s hard to figure these guys out. Requests for comment from Riley’s agent went unanswered. Rinder thinks Lisa Marie went back to church later in life seeking assistance in overcoming addiction, particularly to the opioids she claimed were given to her for pain relief following the birth of her twins.
Riley has never publicly discussed Scientology, but she still maintains close friendships with a number of the young Hollywood Scientologists she was raised with, such as “The Walking Dead” actor Alanna Masterson and Lillie Price, the late Kirstie Alley’s daughter. Riley joined Scientology when she was only ten years old, according to Karen de la Carriere, a former senior Scientologist who served as Lisa Marie’s “auditor” or counselor. Riley is still a Scientologist today. ‘The Church does not comment on parishioners,’ a Scientology spokeswoman told Page Six. “We are devastated by Lisa Marie’s passing. Our hearts go out to the family during this terrible time. With Lisa Marie, the Church enjoys a friendly and caring relationship. “.
Riley will be surrounded by vultures, according to de la Carriere. “What’s truly worrisome is that Riley has inherited one-third of Graceland, which is a huge moneymaker and will continue to be so in perpetuity. She married Australian stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen in Napa, California, in February 2015, and he has been her pillar of strength throughout her grief. The couple fell in love while filming retakes in Australia a year after they first met on the “Mad Max: Fury Road” set in Namibia, Africa.
“Everything is great when you’re falling in love,” she penned in Vogue Australia last year, revealing they were married in the United States after a Hindu ceremony in Nepal, where they also built a school. She continued, “My husband is such a wonderful person. He is composed, dependable, powerful, and sensitive. I am eager to start a family. Riley has said that she is still saddened by her brother Ben’s passing. She posted a photo of the two of them as young children on Instagram on October 21 along with the caption, “You would be 30 today. Happy birthday, my dearest friend and angel. Everything seems strange without you. “.
