Presley and his wife, Priscilla Presley, attended the Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Both had to watch Austin Butler, who played her father in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic “Elvis” in 2022, win best actor in a drama.
Priscilla Presley praised Butler’s performance on Instagram shortly before TMZ broke the news on Thursday. Lisa Marie’s health issues were not mentioned in the post.
“My heartfelt congratulations to @austinbutler for winning the Golden Globe for best actor. “It was well deserved,” wrote Presley. “He studied Elvis for two years and simply became him in his performance. Austin, I’m so proud of you. I only wish that the genius captured by Baz Luhrmann was also recognised.”
Presley was in Memphis this past Sunday to help fans celebrate what would have been her father’s 88th birthday at Graceland.
“It’s been a long time. “I missed you,” she said to the assembled crowd. “I keep telling you that you’re the only people who can get me out of my house. I’m not joking.”
Lisa Marie Presley grew up in the shadow of her father’s celebrity, with her name even emblazoned on her father’s jet, until her parents divorced in 1973. She seemed destined for a life in the spotlight, thanks to both her father’s likeness in appearance and a notable singing voice.
Despite being the only child of a global icon, Presley seemed to wonder what the fuss was all about.
“I thought it was an amusing notion, but I didn’t really see how other people would find it interesting,” she told USA TODAY in 2012, in reference to a new Graceland exhibit titled “Elvis…Through His Daughter’s Eyes.”
A blue record player that played her first 45s, her footprints on a hospital birth record, and a recreation of Presley’s nursery were among the more touching personal effects. “Everything is so personal and subjective,” she said. “However, everything worked out well.”
She made headlines in 1994 after divorcing musician Danny Keough, with whom she has two children, Riley and Benjamin, and marrying music legend Michael Jackson. They divorced less than two years later. From 2002 to 2004, she was married to actor and Elvis fan Nicolas Cage.
She married guitarist Michael Lockwood in 2006; they divorced in 2021 and have twin daughters, Finley and Harper, 11.
If Presley found solace in the midst of the storm that was being Elvis’ only child, it was in Kent, a bucolic English suburb southeast of London that claimed a lot of her time and heart about a decade ago.
In an interview with USA TODAY in 2012, prior to the release of her album “Storm & Grace,” Presley expressed a desire to return to her non-celebrity life in England.
“I just adore it over there,” she exclaimed. “I garden, take long walks, and cook. I have really nice neighbours, and we frequently get together at the local pub. We won’t be able to keep up with them there. But it’s so much fun because it’s where you see everyone from the village.”
Presley stated in the same interview that she felt emotionally and financially robbed by her closest confidants.
“I was slowly starting to self-destruct, and I didn’t know where it was coming from,” Presley explained, implying that the harm was both personal and professional. “I was given bad advice. I was insulated and had lost touch with reality. They were stealing my soul, my money, and everything I owned.”
Drug addiction was one of Presley’s demons. In a foreword to the book “The United States of Opioids: A Prescription for Liberating a Painful Nation,” she detailed her opioid addiction in 2019.
Presley, who said she was “grateful to be alive,” said painkillers prescribed after the birth of her twins led to a full-fledged addiction.
“It’s a difficult path to overcome this dependence and rebuild my life,” she wrote. “Even in recent years, I have seen too many people I loved struggle with addiction and die tragically from this epidemic. It is time to let go of the stigma associated with addiction. We must stop blaming and judging ourselves and those around us…. This begins with us sharing our stories
When her son Benjamin, 27, committed suicide in 2020, Presley would be forced to confront a different kind of pain. In honour of National Grief Awareness Day this past fall, Presley wrote an essay for People about the pain her family has endured since the incident.
“My and my three daughters’ lives as we knew it were completely detonated and destroyed by his death. We live in this world every day. Single. “It’s Day,” she wrote. “Grief is something you will have to live with for the rest of your life, regardless of what certain people or our culture would have us believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ nor do you’move on.”
