Lisa Marie Presley died at the age of 54 after going into cardiac arrest in her Calabasas home Thursday.

Presley, the only daughter of rock and roll legend Elvis Presley, was given CPR by first responders on the way to the hospital, with her heart being momentarily restarted, but was later pronounced dead.

‘It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie’s mother said in a statement Thursday. “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

She was last publicly seen Tuesday at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood, as she watched Austin Butler win for best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture for his portrayal of Elvis. Butler thanked her and Priscilla after receiving the award, saying, “Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me… I love you forever.”

Just last week, Presley was seen in Memphis, Tennessee, celebrating her father’s birthday, as fans gathered at the Graceland home that Jan. 8.

As soon as the news of her death became public, the love and sadness began to pour in, as people began to share their thoughts and prayers:


Billy Idol

“Sad news 2 hear of #LisaMariePresley passing .. she was very loving 2 me, in Memphis in the 90’s she gave me a viewing of the private sections of Graceland which was very special. She was very lovely & we performed together at NYFW early 2000’s. RIP”


Bette Midler

“Dear God, #LisaMariePresley has died; I’m in shock. So beautiful and only 54 years old; I can’t actually comprehend it.”


Tom Petty

“We are so saddened to hear of the loss of Lisa Marie Presley, a talented musician and royalty in the world of rock ‘n’ roll. The world and music community will miss her presence. Our hearts are with Priscilla and her children at this time.”


Jennifer Tilly

“So sad about Lisa Marie Presley. Oddly I was just at Graceland yesterday and took this picture. The guide was telling us that sometimes she would have dinners in the dining room, and once she had a party for her friends in the plane named after her. Rip sweet soul.”


Golden Globe Awards

“We are incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of Lisa Marie Presley. She was an extremely talented Singer/Songwriter and a very welcome presence at the Golden Globes this past Tuesday. May you rest in peace.”


Like her father, Lisa Marie was a vocalist and released three studio albums titled, “To Whom It May Concern,” in 2003, debuting at No. 5 on the billboard charts, “Now What” in 2005, and “Storm and Grace” in 2012.

Her cause of death has not yet been revealed and Presley is survived by her three children, Riley, Finley and Harper.
