Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, has died Thursday at the age of 54.  A representative for Priscilla Presley confirmed her daughter’s death to CBS News. 

“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” a publicist for Priscilla Presley told CBS News in a statement. “They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”  

The announcement of Presley’s death came just hours after she was rushed to a hospital after experiencing cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California. 

“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital. She is now receiving the best care,” Prisilla Presley wrote on Facebook earlier Thursday. “Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time

Presley was married four times. She and her first husband, Danny Keough, had two children: daughter Riley —  an actress who has appeared in films such as “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Logan Lucky” — and son Benjamin, who died by suicide in 2020. Keough and Presley divorced in 1994 after five and a half years of marriage. Presley married Michael Jackson three weeks later, but the couple divorced in 1996. 

Presley next married actor Nicolas Cage in August 2002. The pair soon filed for divorce in November 2002, but the separation was not finalized until 2004. 

In 2006, she married Michael Lockwood, her music producer. With Lockwood, Presley welcomed two more children, twins Harper Vivienne and Finley Aaron. In 2016, Presley filed for divorce. The divorce was finalized in 2021.
