Although Lisa Marie Presley’s sudden passing may have allowed the world to move on quietly, it is understandable that her friends and family are left with a glaring hole in their lives.
After being taken to the hospital in full cardiac arrest, Elvis Presley’s only child passed away on January 12.
According to TMZ, Lisa Marie’s housekeeper found her unconscious in the bathroom. Her ex-husband, Danny Keough, started performing CPR before paramedics arrived.
Richard Gere, 73, was unexpectedly hospitalised while on a family vacation.
Her mother, Priscilla Presley, confirmed Lisa Marie’s demise in a statement:
“I must deliver the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has passed away alongside you. She was the most passionate, brave, and loving woman I have ever met.
The day after her mother passed, Riley Keough, Lisa Marie’s daughter, posted a heartfelt remembrance of her. The post included an image of Riley and Lisa from their earlier years together, along with a straightforward heart emoji as a caption.
Riley Keough's husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, revealed they welcomed a baby girl while he gave a speech on behalf of Riley during a memorial service for Lisa Marie Presley!

One can only imagine the avalanche of emotions Riley is currently going through, and it’s possible that her decision to leave blank space on her post simply reflects that Riley isn’t yet ready to talk about her mother’s unexpected passing.
This week, in an updated Instagram post, the 33-year-old shared her last photo with her cherished mother.
She said, “I feel lucky to have a picture of the last time I saw my lovely mother. We appreciate you taking this, @georgieflores.
Lisa Marie watched Austin Butler win the Best Actor in a Dramatic Motion Picture award for portraying Lisa Marie’s father in Elvis at the Golden Globes the day before she passed away.
She recalled her feeling after seeing the film about her father by Baz Luhrmann: “I really didn’t know what to do with myself after I saw it. “.
It was “so incredible and so accurate and just so authentic that, yeah, I can’t even describe what it meant,” the author said. “I had to process it for like five days. “.
“You are my mother in this life, and I am grateful for that. The 33 years we spent together will always be appreciated. Riley wrote that she knew she was the best mother she could have been for her son for as long as she could remember. “I can remember everything. When I was a baby, I remember you bathing me. You were driving me, Aretha Franklin playing in the background, and I can still picture that. When I came to your bed at night, I still remember your smell and how you would hold me.
“In Florida, I remember you taking me out for ice cream after school. I remember you lying next to my brother and me at night, singing us lullabies until we fell asleep.
When you left town, I remember that you would always buy me a new Cracker Barrel tea set. “.
“Every note you’ve ever placed in my lunchbox is still here. My memory of the emotion I would feel when I saw you pick me up from school and the sensation of your hand on my forehead still remain. My mother was the most loving mother I’ve ever known, and I can still feel her love. I remember how safe I felt in your embrace. I remember experiencing that on your couch two weeks ago when I was a child.
“Thank you for demonstrating to me that love is the only thing that matters. I want to love my daughter the way you loved me, my brother, and my sisters.
Even though Lisa Marie’s passing is undoubtedly heartbreaking and resulted in a global outpouring of grief, fans may take solace in knowing she has now been reunited with her beloved baby Benjamin.
When Benjamin, Elvis’ grandson, killed himself in 2020 at 27, Lisa Marie’s life was irrevocably changed.
Page Six rumours claim that Lisa Marie was interred with her son at Graceland over the weekend. Now, it’s thought that the two are seated next to one another in the fabled home of Elvis Presley’s meditation garden.
