Lisa Marie and Elvis Presley
The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley made headlines this afternoon after EMT responded to the singer’s home in Calabasas California, for a possible cardiac arrest. This was just two days after Presley attended the 2023 Golden Globes with Mom Priscilla and Elvis star Austin Butler.
Lisa Marie was born in Tennessee on February 1, 1968, exactly nine months after her parents tied the knot. She was raised in that area before moving to Los Angeles at the age of four with her mother following Elvis and Priscilla’s divorce in 1973.
Elvis died in August of 1977, making Lisa Marie only 9-years-old when she became the joint hair to his estate alongside her grandfather Vernon Presley and great-grandmother Minnie May Hood Presley. Following the deaths of her grandparents in 1979 and 1980, she became the sole heir and also inherited Elvis’ beloved Graceland residence.

During an interview with Good Morning America Lisa Marie recalled her time with Elvis, saying, “He’d always wake me up to sing in the middle of the night, get on the table and sing. I remember him as my dad, but he was a very exciting dad.”
The star had four children, actress Riley Keough, 33, and late son Benjamin with her ex-husband Danny Keough. She also shared twin girls Harper and Finley, 14, with her fourth ex-husband, Michael Lockwood.
