According to some new reports, the 27 year old son of Lisa Marie Presley has tragically passed away. Benjamin Keough, who was also the grandson of the legendary Elvis Presley, apparently committed suicide in Calabasas, California earlier today, as per TMZ.
Obviously, Lisa Marie and the rest of the family, including Benjamin’s three siblings, are shocked and mourning his loss.
Not too long after the tragic news made way to the public, a rep for the pained mother shared with ET that ‘Lisa Marie 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.’
As fans of the famous family might know, Riley Keough, who is Lisa Marie Presley’s oldest daughter, is an actress, but Benjamin was rather private and stayed out of the public eye most of his life.
That being said, people online knew very little about him except for how much he resembled his grandpa, Elvis Presley!
That being said, he actually managed to make headlines a year ago in June for this, a lot of people gushing over how much he looked like the late legend!
They were able to reach that conclusion after Lisa Marie Presley proudly shared a family pic on her go-to platform and not by seeing one that the young man had posted himself.
Alongside the black and white photo, in the caption, she sweetly wrote: ‘Mama Lion with cubs.’

The snap showed Lisa Marie wrapping her arms around all of her kids, including Riley, her youngest kids, twin daughters Finley and Harper, as well as Benjamin.
Lisa Marie Presley had Benjamin with Danny Keough and it’s being reported that he was a musician as well, having signed a $5 million deal with Universal Records back in 2009.
