Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis Presley, has died, reports say
Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis Presley, died Thursday after being rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital suffering from cardiac arrest, news reports said.
Presley, 54, suffered cardiac arrest at her home in the Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas, according to the TMZ website. The outlet said paramedics performed CPR and administered the drug epinephrine to restart his pulse.
Her mother, Priscilla, confirmed her daughter was in hospital and said she was “receiving the best care”.
“Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers of the world and ask for privacy during this time,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement.
TMZ showed a photo of Priscilla Presley arriving at the hospital to be with her daughter.
Lisa Marie Presley was born in 1968 and owns her father’s Graceland mansion in Memphis, a popular tourist attraction. She was nine when Elvis died at Graceland in 1977.
His own musical career began with a 2003 debut album “To Whom It May Concern”. It was followed by “Now What” in 2005 and both reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
A third album, “Storm and Grace”, was released in 2012.
On Tuesday, Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley attended the Golden Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills, where Austin Butler won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his starring role in last year’s biopic “Elvis.” Upon accepting the award, Butler thanked both women, saying “I love you forever.”
