Riley Keough shared a simple yet heartbreaking tribute to his mother, Lisa Marie Presley.
Lisa Marie, the only child of music legend Elvis Presley, was pronounced dead shortly after suffering a cardiac arrest on January 12 and being rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles.
She was 54 years old.
At the time, Presley’s mother acknowledged the tragic turn of events, saying in a statement:
“It is with a heavy heart that I have to share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was a strong and loving woman.
“We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this severe loss. Thank you for your love and prayers.
“There are no further comments at this time.”
Many celebrities expressed their grief and grief on social media after Lisa Marie passed away, but we have yet to hear from the star’s daughter.
Earlier Friday, Keough, Lisa Marie’s oldest child and Elvis’ granddaughter, honored the late singer with an emotional tribute she shared on Instagram.
The actress captioned her post with a red heart emoji, along with a nostalgic photo of Riley’s mother holding her while holding flowers.
The post comes a day after Presley was buried on the family property in Graceland alongside his late son Benjamin Keough, who committed suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27.
Lisa Marie welcomed Riley in May 1989 with ex-husband Danny Keough.
The spouses split in 1994 after four years of marriage.
(Lisa Marie is also the mother of twins Harper and Finley, 14, whom she shared with ex Michael Lockwood.)
After her parents went their separate ways, Riley stayed close to her famous family but was fairly independent when it came to starting her own acting career.
“I was always concerned with having my own money, not family money. I don’t think it had anything to do with me being Elvis’ granddaughter,” the actress told Esquire in April 2016. , at the time added:
“My driving force wasn’t ‘I need to get away from my family legacy!
“I wanted to save money and go to film school.”
She continued at the time:
“A lot of people ask me, how crazy is it that your grandpa was Elvis?” I make them happy and say, “Yeah, that’s so crazy!”
“But the truth is, I never thought about it. The reality is, I know as much about Grandpa as you know about Grandpa you’ve never met.”
A memorial service for Lisa Marie will be held on Sunday, January 22nd. Earlier this month, Graceland officials confirmed that Riley, Harper, and Feinley will inherit the prestigious mansion.
