Benjamin Keough, Son Of Elvis’s Daughter Lisa Marie Presley, Dies At 27 In Apparent Suicide
Benjamin Keough, son of Lisa Marie Presley, has died at 27 in Calabasas, California, according to a family representative.
A representative for Presley, Roger Widynowski, told various news outlets, “She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
Although the representative did not specify a cause of death, TMZ reported that Keough died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday.
Last year, Presley posted a picture of her and her children with the caption “Mama Lion with cubs.” In the comments, fans pointed out the resemblance Benjamin had to his famous grandfather.
