LOS ANGELES: The son of Lisa Marie Presley, Benjamin Keough has died at the age of 27.
Presley’s representative Roger Widynowski said in a statement Sunday that she was “heartbroken” after learning about the death of her son. He was the grandson of the late Elvis Presley.
It was reported that Keough died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound Sunday in Calabasas, California.
Widynowski said in the statement, Presley 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.
Benjamin starred in a music video for his mother’s rendition of Elvis’ 1954 hit “I Love You Because” along with his siblings in 2012, and appeared in the TV documentary Elvis by the Presleys.
Presley previously told reporters that all of her children had “a little bit” of her late father in them, but that Benjamin’s resemblance to Elvis was uncanny.
She had Keough and actress Riley Keough, 31, with her former husband Danny Keough. She also had twins from another marriage.
