Benjamin Keough, son of Lisa Marie Presley and singer-songwriter Danny Keough and grandson of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, has died at the age of 27. He reportedly died by suicide in Calabasas, California, on Sunday, according to TMZ. Keough also leaves behind a sister, The Lodge actress Riley Keough, and half-sisters Finley and Harper, Presley’s daughters with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Keough was at one point pursuing a career in music, signing a five-album contract with Universal in 2009, though the label later denied that a deal had been made. Lisa Marie Presley’s manager Roger Widynowski said 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.”
