Presley was rushed to the hospital last week after suffering from a cardiac arrest. Priscilla Presley would later confirm that her daughter had died hours later in a statement to the Associated Press that read, “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
The singer-songwriter had just been at the Golden Globes celebrating the film made by Baz Luhrmann in honor of her father. Austin Butler won a trophy that night and dedicated his win to both Lisa Marie and Priscilla for their help in helping him personify the iconic star.
Following her death, Butler released a statement saying, “My heart is completely shattered for Riley, Finley, Harper and Priscilla at the tragic and unexpected loss of Lisa Marie. I am eternally grateful for the time I was lucky enough to be near her bright light and will forever cherish the quiet moments we shared. Her warmth, her love and her authenticity will always be remembered.”
