As you’ve likely heard by now, Lisa Marie Presley has passed away at the age of 54.
The old child of iconic musician Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday and was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital… where she was eventually pronounced dead.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” her mom Priscilla Presley said in a statement to People Magazine on January 12.
“She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
Concluded the mournful mother:
“We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”
Lisa Marie — who embarked on her own music career and who was famously married to both Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage — is survived by her mother, Priscilla, and daughters Riley, 33; and twins Finley and Harper, both 14.
In the wake of her passing, a number of celebrities have expressed their shock and sorrow on social media. To wit:
Cage: “This is devastating news. Lisa had the greatest laugh of anyone I ever met. She lit up every room, and I am heartbroken. I find some solace believing she is reunited with her son Benjamin.”
Billy Corgan: “There is heartbreak and then there is sorrow. This would be sorrow and on more levels than I can count.”
Leah Remini: “I’m heartbroken over the passing of Lisa Marie Presley. She offered prayers to her mom and children, noting, “May she be at peace, resting with her son and father now.”
