Since she was the only child of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, who passed away on January 12, spent the majority of her life in the shadow of the public eye. She said, however, that having the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll as her father made things “very exciting.”

In a 2009 interview with Good Morning America, Lisa Marie said, “He’d always wake me up to sing in the middle of the night, get on the table and sing.” He was my father, but he was a very exciting father, as I remember him.

The well-known couple gave birth to Lisa on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee, nine months after their wedding.

She told The Associated Press in 2012 that spending time with Elvis at the house was fun. She said that she remembered him taking her around the neighborhood on golf carts.

He was always completely prepared. She stated to the publication in 2012 that “you’d never see him in his pajamas coming down the steps, ever.” He would never be seen in anything other than “ready to be seen” clothing.”

However, when Lisa Marie was 4 years old, her parents got divorced, and she and her mother moved to Los Angeles.

Elvis passed away in August 1977, many years later. He was 42.

That night, she stayed at Graceland and remembered kissing her father goodnight before he fell and never got up. The following morning, she discovered him on the bathroom floor.

In 2003, she told Rolling Stone, “I just had a feeling.” He was having trouble. All I know is that I felt it and it happened to me. I was very young when I was obsessed with death.”

She became the joint heir to his estate after his death, and she became the sole heir to Graceland when her grandfather Vernon Presley and great-grandmother Minnie Mae Hood Presley died in 1979 and 1980, respectively.

She stated to The Associated Press in 2012, referring to his influence, “It’s been all my life.” I don’t listen to it anymore, and it’s different. Despite this, I might listen closer. I maintain my unwavering belief that I have always admired. He has always had an impact on me.”

In October 1988, she tied the knot with musician Danny Keough of Chicago.

WATCH: A few days before Elvis Presley’s death, LISA MARIE PRESLEY delivered remarks at the Graceland celebration of his 88th birthday. The couple had two children together—a daughter named Riley in 1989 and a son named Benjamin in 1992—but divorced in May 1994.

She and Jackson tied the knot less than a month later.

“I dedicate my life to being his wife because I am so in love with Michael. According to People, she explained at the time, “I understand and support him.” We are both excited about starting a family.”

According to HuffPost, in 2016, Lisa Marie told Oprah Winfrey, “The one thing that correlates with Michael and with my father on this subject is that they had the luxury of creating whatever reality around them they wanted to create.” (Michel Dufour/WireImage) They might have people who were going to follow or not follow their program. They could be discarded if they weren’t.”

He passed away on June 25, 2009.

In 2000, Lisa Marie also got engaged to John Oszajca, a musician, but they broke up when she met Nicolas Cage, an actor.

Cage and Lisa Marie tied the knot two years later. On the 25th anniversary of Elvis’ death, they held a secret ceremony in Hawaii, but they broke up less than four months later.

In 2014, Lisa Marie revealed to Healthy Living that she was “ferociously protective” of her children.

She continued, “I just smother them in love.” My top priority is them. That is my practice. I am most concerned about that. I ensure that they are content and healthy by keeping them close to me.

Benjamin, Lisa Marie’s son, took his own life in 2020. Her life was fundamentally altered by it.

She wrote on Instagram following his passing, “My beautiful, beautiful angel, I worshiped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven.” My entire being went with you. Without you, the pain is so great that it’s suffocating and never-ending.

She has since openly shared her grief, most recently in a 2022 essay for People Magazine.

“Since I was nine years old, I have dealt with grief, death, and loss. She wrote at the time, “I’ve had more than anyone’s fair share of it in my lifetime, and somehow, I’ve made it this far.”

After the police did not respond to the “not breathing call” at the Cababasas home.

LISA MARIE PRESLEY was hospitalized. “But this one, the death of my beautiful, beautiful son? Who made me feel so honored every day to be his mother, the sweetest and most amazing person I have ever had the privilege of knowing? Who in so many ways resembled his grandfather that he actually frightened me? Which increased my naturally increased concern for him?” “Her essay went on.” No. “It’s a real choice to keep going, one that I have to make every single day and one that is always challenging, to say the least… But I keep going for my girls,” she wrote. “Just no… no, no, no, no, no…” I keep going because, in his final moments, my son made it abundantly clear that taking care of his sisters and looking out for them were top priorities.

On June 16, 2002, Lisa Marie Presley, her children Benjamin Keough (R), Riley Keough (L), and Navarone Garibaldi (back), her half-brother, attended the premiere of “Lilo and Stitch” at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood.
