Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley, passed unexpectedly on Thursday at the age of 54 following a heart arrest at her Calabasas home.
The actress was transported to the hospital with her mother, Priscilla Presley, given a temporary pacemaker and put in an induced coma; nevertheless, hours later, a distraught Priscilla confirmed the star’s passing.
Lisa Marie’s mother Priscilla acknowledged in a statement, “It is with a heavy heart that I must deliver the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.
She was the most fervent, powerful, and loving woman I’ve ever met. We request discretion as we work to process this tragic loss. Thank you for your prayers and kindness. No other comments will be made at this time.
Hollywood celebrities, who had met with her at the Golden Globes only a few days earlier, hurried to pay Lisa Marie respect.
One of the first people to post about Elvis Presley’s daughter was John Travolta, who wrote: “Lisa baby child, I’m very sad. Although I’ll miss you, I’m confident I’ll see you again. For Riley, Priscilla, Harper, and Finley, my love and heart are with them.
