Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, died Thursday evening after going into cardiac arrest earlier in the day. She was 54 years old.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Los Angeles County paramedics performed CPR on Presley at her Calabasas home after she went into “full arrest” before transporting her to a medical facility.
Paramedics were able to regain a pulse before she arrived at the hospital when someone administered epinephrine at the scene, the report said.
The family released a separate statement Thursday evening following the news of Lisa Presley’s passing.
“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” the family statement said. “They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
Presley was just at the 80th Golden Globe Awards with her mother on Tuesday where they watched Austin Butler win his first Golden Globe award for best actor in a dramatic motion picture for his portrayal of Elvis Presley in the eponymous biopic.
Lisa Presley, a singer and songwriter, has three children, including actress Riley Keough.
As a teenager, Lisa Presley dropped out of high school and later entered rehab after she had started to use drugs. While in rehab, she met musician Danny Keough, whom she later married in 1988 and with whom she had two children, Riley and Benjamin. The two divorced in 1994 after six years of marriage.
Less than a month later, Lisa Presley married singer Michael Jackson, a marriage that would last less than two years.
Lisa Presley became engaged to musician John Oszajca several years later in 2000 before she ended that relationship so she could date actor Nicholas Cage.
Cage and Presley married in 2002, but the marriage ended less than four months later.
TMZ added that Lisa Presley owned and operated Elvis Presley Enterprises until 2005 when she sold the business.
