Lisa Marie Presley ‘heartbroken’ over death of son Benjamin Keough, Elvis Presley’s grandson, at 27

Benjamin Keough, the grandson of Elvis Presley and the son of Lisa Marie Presley, has died.

Benjamin Keough, the son of actress Lisa Marie Presley and the look-alike grandson of Elvis Presley, has died at 27.

Lisa Marie Presley’s manager Roger Widynowski confirmed the death in a statement to USA TODAY: “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.”

Keough’s father is singer-songwriter Danny Keough and his sister is singer Riley Keough, 31.

The low-key Benjamin Keough made waves in 2019 after Lisa Marie Presley posted a family picture on Twitter, with social media responders commenting on his likeness to Elvis Presley (far right in the photo below).

In a 2013 interview with The Huffington Post, Lisa Marie was asked about the resemblance, saying, “Sometimes a lot. It depends how he’s fixing himself up. Yeah, without question actually.”

When asked if Benjamin was going to have a music career, she said, “He’s doing his own thing right now. I’m going to let him decide when he wants to go out and do what he wants to do.”
