Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, died suddenly Thursday at age 54, the Daily Caller reported. She reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest at home and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Paramedics responded to a call at Lisa Marie Presley's Calabasas home and performed CPR to revive her. At one point, someone on the scene administered epinephrine which brought her pulse back temporarily.
"It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us," Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley's mother, told People Magazine. "She was the most passionate, strong, and loving woman I have ever known," her mother added.
"We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers," her mother added.
Lisa Marie Presley's tragic death comes just days after she attended the 80th Golden Globe Awards Tuesday in Beverly Hills, California. She and her mother looked on as actor Austin Butler took home an award for his portrayal of the titular character in the biopic "Elvis," the Los Angeles Times reported.
Presley endured a lifetime punctuated by profound loss and grief, the New York Times reported. She first experienced great tragedy at only 9 years old when her father died.
Her adult life has also been marred by tragedy. Presley married Danny Keough in 1988, and they had two children together before separating six years into the union.
They shared a daughter Riley Keough and a son Benjamin Keough. Tragically, Benjamin committed in 2020 at only 27 years old.
Presley was also briefly married to Michael Jackson between 1994 and 1996. She would again experience divorce in 2002 when she married actor Nicholas Cage before breaking it off just four months later.
Her last marriage was to Michael Lockwood, and the two had twin daughters in 2008 before the couple divorced in 2021. Presley's romantic life wasn't the only source of pain, however.
In the forward to the book "The United States of Opioids: A Prescription for Liberating a Nation in Pain," Presley shared her own addiction woes in 2019. She became addicted to opioids following the birth of her daughters in 2008, according to CNN.
"Across America and the world, people are dying in mind-boggling numbers because of opioid and other drug overdoses," Presley wrote. "Many more people are suffering silently, addicted to opioids and other substances."
"I am writing this in the hope that I can play a small part in focusing attention on this terrible crisis," Presley added. She later penned a 2022 essay published in People Magazine that seemed to sum up her life's tragedies while reflecting on her son's untimely death.
"Grief does not stop or go away in any sense, a year, or years after the loss," Presley wrote. "Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe."
Presley lived her life in the shadow of her famous father, whose untimely death gutted a nation. Now Lisa Marie Presley has also left the world too soon.
