Lisa Marie Presley, 54, died Thursday while hospitalized in critical condition after reportedly going into cardiac arrest.
“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” read a statement to The Post from a rep for the 77-year-old Priscilla.
“They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla had been in an induced coma and on life support with a temporary pacemaker, according to TMZ.
Sgt. Sean Maloney of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office told The Post that deputies responded to a call at the 5900 block of Normandy Drive in Calabasas at about 10:40 a.m. Thursday at the request of Los Angeles County Fire Department. The call involved a female in cardiac arrest.
Fire personnel were able to get a pulse and she was transported to West Hills Hospital, according to Maloney.
A fire department representative told The Post they were dispatched at 10:37 a.m. and arrived at 10:43 a.m., and a female patient — reported to be 55 — was transported at 11:17 a.m.
Lisa Marie and Priscilla just attended the Golden Globes on Tuesday to watch Austin Butler score the men’s top drama acting award for his portrayal of The King in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic “Elvis.” He even shouted them out in his acceptance speech.
“The Presley family, thank you guys for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me,” he told the Tennessee natives. “Lisa Marie and Priscilla, I love you forever.”

However, Lisa Marie appeared unsteady — while wearing tall heels — at various points upon arrival at the event. A TikTok video shared Wednesday showed her walking with Butler, at times shuffling and stumbling and seeming to need support.
Commenters expressed worry, writing, “What’s wrong with Lisa Marie” and “Is Lisa Marie ok?”
Before the show, during an interview with “Extra” host Billy Bush, Lisa Marie turned to her and Elvis’ friend, 80-year-old talent manager Jerry Schilling, and told him she was “gonna grab your arm” before reaching out and putting her right hand into the crook of his left arm. She went on to say she was “mind-blown” by Butler’s performance, calling it “so spot-on and authentic.”
Priscilla broke her silence on Lisa Marie’s condition earlier Thursday in a statement to The Post after arriving at the facility.
“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital,” Priscilla told The Post. “She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers.
“We feel the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time,” she added.
Priscilla was spotted by paparazzi arriving at the hospital to be by her daughter’s side.
A source told TMZ that Lisa Marie — who would have turned 55 on Feb. 1 — went into “full arrest,” and her ex-husband, Danny Keough, who reportedly lived with Lisa Marie, performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Rescue workers “administered epinephrine at the scene at least one time in order to help Presley regain a pulse,” according to the site.
A housekeeper found Lisa Marie unresponsive in her bedroom on Thursday, according to TMZ.
Lisa Marie was her parents’ only child. She became the sole heir to Elvis’ estimated $100 million estate in 1993 when she turned 25. In 2004, she sold 85% of it.
Lisa Marie had been married four times, to husbands Danny Keough, Michael Jackson, Nicolas Cage and Michael Lockwood.385

She had four children, including a son, Benjamin Keough, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at age 27 on July 12, 2020.
Danny Keough and Presley also shared a daughter, Riley Keough, 33, and she had 14-year-old twin daughters, Finley Aaron Love and Harper Vivienne Ann, with Lockwood.
Lisa Marie’s father Elvis, then 42, died of a heart attack at his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, on Aug. 16, 1977.
Elvis’ stepbrother and one-time bodyguard, David E. Stanley, revealed in 2016 that the rock ‘n’ roll icon’s final days were seemingly overtaken by a cocktail of incapacitating drugs — and Elvis would be at risk of choking on food because he would nod off while eating.
“During the last two years of his life, there were more than a dozen times when I had to put my finger down his throat and remove food,” Stanley told The Post before the release of his memoir, “My Brother Elvis: The Final Years.” “He would take three ‘attack-packs’ of medication [at night]. Each one had 11 sleeping pills and three shots of Demerol. During the day, he would counteract [the downers] with amphetamines.”
Stanely claimed that Elvis was bored, isolated and heavily reliant on prescription drugs.
“To me, it was a self-induced drug overdose,” Stanley said. “I lived with a tormented man — the man that said he’d rather be ‘unconscious than unhappy.’ Part of me was relieved when I saw his lifeless body.”
