Benjamin Keough, the grandson of Elvis Presley and son of Lisa Marie Presley, has died in an apparent suicide at the age of 27. Police say Keough died in his house on Sunday in Calabasas, California where he was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The 27-year-old was a musician and an actor and resembled his famous grandfather.
Lisa Marie Presley’s manager told reporters: “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.” Benjamin’s father is musician Danny Keough and his sister is actress Riley Keough.
One of Lisa Marie Presley’s Instagram posts from June 2019, featured the singer with all her children including Benjamin.
“Mama Lion with cubs,” Lisa Marie captioned the picture, which showed her son resting on older sister Riley as the family positioned for a photo.
Lisa Marie Presley featured her son in a music video in 2012. The song was a rendition of Elvis’ 1954 hit ‘I Love You Because’, and features Benjamin and his siblings.
