Lisa Marie Presley’s death has been reported to have been from a second heart attack. She passed away on January 12, 2023, at the age of 54.
According to TMZ, Lisa Marie was pronounced brain dead after she was rushed to the hospital on Thursday. The condition prompted doctors to put her into a medically-induced coma. Following the singer’s critical condition, her family decided to sign a do-not-resuscitate order at the hospital in case she suffered a second cardiac arrest.
Lisa Marie, who is the only child of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and actor Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley, was found unresponsive by her housekeeper Thursday morning in her California home. Daniel Keough, her first ex-husband who was living with her, performed CPR until EMTs arrived.
After EMTs revived her after administering epinephrine, she “coded multiple times” while at the hospital.
Her mother Priscilla Presley, later confirmed that she had passed away.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was the most passionate, strong, and loving woman I have ever known.”
Lisa Marie, who also followed in her father’s footsteps, had four children herself. With her ex-husband Danny Keough, she welcomed Riley, 33, and Benjamin and from her most recent ex-husband, she gave birth to twins Finley and Harper, now 14.
She will be buried next to her father Elvis Presley and son Benjamin Keough who died of suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27.
Lisa Marie’s daughters are set to inherit the iconic Tennessee estate since she was the sole heir of the Graceland.
