Lisa Marie Presley’s son Benjamin Keough has been found dead at the age of 27.
A representative for Lisa Marie, 52 confirmed the news with a statement to Fox News saying – “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.”
Reports say Benjamin died on Sunday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in an apparent suicide in Calabasas.

Benjamin was also known for his striking resemblance to Elvis, which his mum once addressed. “Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage.” She added, “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.”
Lisa Marie even wrote a song about Ben called “Storm and Grace.” Storm is Ben’s middle name.
As well as being mum to Benjamin and Riley, Lisa Marie also has twins Harper and Finley from her relationship to musician Michael Lockwood. The two have been divorced since 2016 after ten years of marriage. Lisa Marie in 2017 said that her daughters were taken into protective custody after claiming she had found hundreds of images and videos of child pornography on Michael’s personal computer.
