Lisa Marie Presley’s Son Benjamin Dead at 27
(TMZ) Lisa Marie Presley's son and Elvis Presley's grandson, Benjamin Keough (27) is dead of an apparent suicide. Benjamin, who's father is Danny Keough Lisa Marie's first husband, has died in Calabasas, California from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to TMZ.
Lisa Marie Presley's manager Roger Widyowski released this statement, "She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11 yeas old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."
Family and friends often commented on how Benjamin looked almost identical to a young Elvis Presley. Lisa Marie has said publicly how much Ben looked like her dad.
He didn't just have his grampa's looks but his charisma as well. At Lisa Marie's shows, he was often the center of attention backstage.
Benjamin Keough was a musician and has appeared in a few movies. He wasn't in the public eye much nor was he wildly into social media. The last public outing with family was at an Elvis Presley candlelight vigil on the grounds of Graceland, Lisa Marie's childhood home in Memphis, Tennesse.
No comment from his famous grandmother, Priscilla Presley.
