Riley Keough has broken her silence about the passing of her mother, Lisa Marie Presley. Riley Keough has finally spoken out about the death of her mom, Lisa Marie Presley.
On the Friday after Lisa Marie’s funeral, the 33-year-old actress uploaded a childhood photo of herself holding flowers and looking up at her mother on Instagram.
She used a red heart emoji in the post’s caption.
On January 12, Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, passed away due to cardiac arrest. To put it simply, she was 54 years old.
Priscilla, 77, released a statement saying, “It is with a heavy heart that I must deliver the devastating news that my beloved daughter, Lisa Marie, has left us.” She was the most devoted, courageous, and kind female human being I have ever met.
There were photos taken earlier in the day of the “Dallas” star visiting the critically ill “Lights Out” singer Lisa Marie at West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles.
Priscilla told The Post that her daughter was “finally receiving the best care” in the hours before her passing. Please pray for her and our family.
Before her official memorial service, Lisa Marie was reportedly laid to rest at Graceland’s Meditation Garden.
Keough and her mother were quite close, and the latter often shared Instagram images of the “Daisy Jones & The Six” actress.
Lisa Marie posted on her birthday in February 2021 that she and her family (Keough, Finley, and Harper) couldn’t have gotten through the day without them.
Benjamin Keough, Lisa Marie’s son from her first marriage, committed suicide in July 2020 at 27. From 1988 to 1994, they were happily married.
She and her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, were together from 2006 until 2021, when they co-parented their two children, Finley and Harper, then both 14 years old.
Lisa Marie was married to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, from 1994 to 1996, and Oscar winner Nicolas Cage, from 2002 to 2004, although they did not have any children.
Lockwood, 61, published a statement through his attorney after the death of his ex-wife, saying that his “world [had] been flipped on its ear.”
As for Cage, he said he was “heartbroken” but took “some solace that [Lisa Marie] is reunited with her baby, Benjamin.”
Lisa Marie’s openness about her loss after Benjamin’s suicide by gunshot was nothing new.
In an essay published in August 2022, she admitted that she “beat [herself] up ceaselessly and chronically, blaming [herself] every single day” for her son’s death.
Riley also used the word “suffering” to describe her emotions after her brother’s death.
She told InStyle in June of 2021, “I’m just basically trying to be grateful for everything at the moment, trying to operate in love, keeping my heart open, and giving and receiving love.”
“And not in some New Agey way; believe me, I’ve had rough days and experienced all manner of agony and misery. But it’s been a massive shift for me in finding those moments and things to grin about when I recognize that’s part of life, and my expectation isn’t simply feeling joy.
