  • Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, is dead at age 54, her mother said Thursday.

  • She made her last public appearance Tuesday at the Golden Globes.

  • Presley is survived by her mother Priscilla and her daughters Riley Keough and twins Harper and Finley Lockwood.

Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, is dead at age 54, her mother said, according to the Associated Press.

"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 on Thursday. "She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known."

Presley's representative also confirmed her death in a statement to Insider.

"Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie," the statement from Presley's representative said. "They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

Presley was "rushed" to the hospital earlier in the day, according to a post that Priscilla Presley shared on Facebook.

Paramedics responded to her Calabasas home after receiving a call that the singer was experiencing cardiac arrest, according to TMZ. She was reportedly given CPR and epinephrine was administered on the scene to help her regain a pulse.

Presley made her last public appearance Tuesday at the 80th Annual Golden Globe awards, where actor Austin Butler won in the best actor category for his portrayal of her father in Baz Luhrmann's 2022 "Elvis," a biopic about the king of rock and roll.

The mother of four followed in her father's footsteps and became a singer. Her most recent album, "Storm & Grace," was released in 2012 and mixed the genres of rock, pop, folk, and country music.

Presley was born to Elvis and Priscilla Presley on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee, and was their only child. She grew up surrounded by media attention because of her father's career as one of the most successful singers in modern history. That attention took a tragic turn and shifted onto Presley and her mother when Elvis died of heart failure in 1977 at only 42 years old. Presley was nine years old at the time.

She was 20 when she married musician Danny Keough. They had two children together: Danielle Riley Keough was born in 1989 and Benjamin Keough was born in 1992.

Presley divorced Danny in early 1994 and secretly married pop star Michael Jackson in May of that year while they were in the Dominican Republic, Entertainment Weekly reported. The couple made headlines after they shared a kiss that shocked the world on stage at the MTV VMAs. But the couple separated in late 1995 and divorced in 1996.

An even shorter marriage to actor Nicholas Cage followed. The exes met in 2000, got married in August 2002, and filed for divorce just three months later, though it wasn't finalized until 2004, according to People.

She married music producer Michael Lockwood in Japan in 2006, according to People. Their twin daughters Finley and Vivianne Lockwood were born on October 7, 2008. Presley and Michael split in 2016, according to People.

Tragedy has followed Presley for much of her life, most recently in 2020 when her son Benjamin died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, per Fox News.

In a 2022 essay about his death for People, Presley wrote, "I already battle with and beat myself up tirelessly and chronically, blaming myself every single day and that's hard enough to now live with. But others will judge and blame you too, even secretly or behind your back which is even more cruel and painful on top of everything else."

She is survived by her mother Priscilla, 77, her daughter Riley, 33, and twin daughters Finley and Harper Vivienne, 14.
