Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child, died Thursday after being hospitalized earlier that day, according to her mother. The musician was 54 years old.
“It is with a sad heart that I must deliver the tragic news that my darling daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley wrote in a statement Thursday evening. “She was the most passionate, strong, and loving woman I have ever met.”
The statement came mere hours after Priscilla Presley announced Lisa Marie Presley had been rushed to the hospital earlier that day.
According to Craig Little, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, paramedics were summoned to a Calabasas house at 10:37 a.m. after receiving a report of a lady in complete cardiac arrest. According to public records, Presley lived at that address.
Little estimated that paramedics arrived roughly six minutes later. According to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, paramedics did CPR and “found the patient showed signs of life” before promptly shifting her to a hospital in neighboring West Hills.
Calabasas is located around 30 miles (50 kilometers) northwest of downtown Los Angeles, between the Santa Monica and Santa Susanna Mountains.
Presley, 54, was in attendance at the Golden Globes on Tuesday to celebrate Austin Butler’s victory for playing her father in “Elvis.” During a red-carpet interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” she dubbed his performance “mind-blowing.”
“I honestly didn’t know what to do with myself when I saw it,” she said of Baz Luhrmann’s film. “I had to take like five days to comprehend that because it was so wonderful and spot on and just so honest that, yeah, I can’t even articulate what it meant.”
She had just returned from Graceland, Elvis Presley‘s estate in Memphis, Tennessee, to commemorate her father’s birth anniversary on Jan. 8.

Kristen Sainato and her husband were visiting Memphis from Cleveland when they learned of Presley’s passing on Thursday. She donned a black jacket with the well-known TCB lightning bolt (shorthand for (taking care of business in a flash) on the back as she reported meeting Presley for a celebration of her father’s birthday on Jan. 8 at Graceland. Sainato placed a bunch of flowers at the front entrance of Graceland.
“Those are for Lisa,” she explained.
She said Lisa Marie Presley was one of her last remaining links to her famous father.
“Everyone is stunned by this. Why? “Why did this have to happen?” Sainato remarked, wiping tears from her eyes as she stood in front of the stone wall that surrounds the home-turned-museum. “She deserved a long and happy life.”
Presley had recently written an essay for People on “the horrible truth” of her sorrow in the aftermath of her son Benjamin Keough’s suicide in 2020. Presley is also the mother of actor Riley Keough and twin girls.
“I’ve lived with death, sadness, and loss since I was nine years old. “I’ve experienced more than anyone’s fair share of it in my lifetime, and somehow, I’ve made it this far,” she wrote in August.
