Lisa Marie Presley’s son Benjamin Keough dies at 27 from apparent suicide
Benjamin Keough the son of Lisa Marie Presley, has died from an apparent suicide.
The 27-year-old who was also Elvis Presley’s grandson, died on Sunday, July 12, in Calabasas from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Benjamin, the son of Lisa and Danny Keough, was also a musician and in 2009, struck a record deal worth $5 million. He also acted in a few movies including a short film called Rod and Barry. His sister is actress Riley Keough, who’s been in a number of horror films including 2019’s “The Lodge.”
He kept quite a low profile but is well-known for his uncanny resemblance to his famous grandfather, Elvis Presley.
Lisa previously addressed the similarity, saying: “Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage.”
She added, “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.” She even wrote a song about Ben called “Storm and Grace.” Storm’s his middle name.
Lisa’s manager, Roger Widynowsk, tells TMZ … “She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11 year old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
