Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, has died, according to her mother.
On Thursday morning, the 54-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” her mother, Priscilla Presley, said.
“She was the most passionate, powerful, and loving woman I’d ever met.”
It came after the 77-year-old asked people to “keep her and our family in your prayers” in an earlier statement.
Her daughter had been “rushed to hospital,” she said, with paramedics called shortly before 10.40 a.m.
Before her death, Presley’s family, including Priscilla and Riley Keough, were photographed outside a hospital in Los Angeles.
Her cardiac arrest occurred just two days after she attended the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills, where she celebrated Austin Butler, who played her father in the biopic Elvis, winning best actor in a drama film.
She gave interviews on the red carpet, telling Entertainment Tonight that the star’s “mind-blowing” performance had left her speechless.
And, just last weekend, Presley was at her father’s old Graceland Mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, to commemorate his birth anniversary on January 8, 1935.
Elvis Presley, widely regarded as the greatest rock and roll artist of all time, died on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42.
At the time, his daughter was nine years old.
The musical career of Lisa Marie
Lisa Marie Presley, like her father, pursued a music career, beginning in 2003 with her debut album, To Whom It May Concern.
It debuted in the top ten on the Billboard album chart in the United States, as did the follow-up record Now What in 2005.
Storm And Grace, her third album, was released to positive reviews after a seven-year wait.
