The decade's most triggering comedy
New details emerged late this week about what transpired in the hospital that allegedly led to the death of Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, after paramedics responded to an emergency call at her home in California.
TMZ first reported that paramedics performed CPR on Presley, 54, at her Calabasas home after she went into “full arrest” before transporting her to a medical facility.
Presley was then placed “on life support with a temporary pacemaker” and was “in an induced coma and in critical condition.”
A subsequent report from the publication said that the doctors pronounced her “brain dead” after she was admitted to the hospital.
Presley’s family members signed a do-not-resuscitate order, sources told TMZ, and Presley died after she suffered a second cardiac arrest.
Priscilla Presley announced her daughter’s passing in a statement on Thursday night.
“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.”
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, 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, she married singer Michael Jackson, a marriage that would last less than two years.
Presley became engaged to musician John Oszajca several years later in 2000 before she ended that relationship so she could date actor Nicolas Cage.
Cage and Presley married in 2002, but the marriage ended less than four months later.
TMZ added that Presley owned and operated Elvis Presley Enterprises until 2005 when she sold the business.
