On the morning of January 13 (AEST), news broke that Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital after her housekeeper found her “unresponsive” in her bedroom.

Emergency services were called to her home in Calabasas, California, where her ex-husband Danny Keough was performing CPR.

Lisa Marie was reportedly able to regain a pulse before being rushed to the hospital, where she was put on life support with a temporary pacemaker. She was in critical condition in an induced coma in the ICU.

Priscilla rushed to her daughter’s side in the hospital, releasing a brief statement shortly after. It was later reported Lisa Marie’s daughter Riley Keough had also rushed to be by her mother’s side.

”My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital,” Priscilla said in a statement at the time. “She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers.”

Sources who claimed to have direct knowledge of the situation told TMZ Danny Keough had arrived home from dropping off the kids at school around the same time her housekeeper had found her unresponsive in her bedroom.

Keough, who has been living with Lisa Marie since 2021, reportedly performed CPR on his ex-wife until paramedics arrived.

Only 48 hours earlier, Lisa Marie attended the 2023 Golden Globes with her 77-year-old mother, with both watching on as Austin Butler won Best Actor, Motion Picture Drama at the event for his role as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Baz Luhrmann‘s Elvis.

Lisa Marie and Priscilla were seen getting emotional as Butler, 31, told them he would “love [them] forever” in his acceptance speech. Priscilla appeared to blink back tears as Lisa Marie put her hands over her face.

Born on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee, Lisa Marie was only nine years old when her father, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, died aged 42 after suffering a heart attack.

Elvis’ mother, Gladys Presley, also died of a heart attack in 1958, aged 46.

Lisa Marie continued her father’s legacy as the owner and operator of Elvis Presley Enterprises until 2005, when she sold the business. She was, however, still the owner of Elvis’ Memphis estate Graceland at the time of her death.

She married Danny Keough in 1998, with whom she shares 33-year-old daughter, actress Riley Keough. The former couple also had a son, Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020 aged 27.

Lisa Marie also shares 14-year-old twin daughters Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood with ex-husband Michael Lockwood, to whom she was married from 2006 to 2016.

She has also been married to the late Michael Jackson and actor Nicolas Cage.
