More heartbreaking news this morning: Lisa Marie Presley's son, Benjamin Keough, has reportedly died at the age 27. According to TMZ, Benjamin—who was the grandson of Elvis and Priscilla Presley—died by suicide on Sunday in Calabasas.

A rep for Lisa Marie tells People that the star is devastated, saying "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."

The outlet reports that Benjamin appeared in his mom's music video for "I Love You Because" in 2012, along with his siblings Riley, Harper, and Finley. She told CMT around that time that Benjamin looked just like his grandfather Elvis, saying "He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage! Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.”
