    Default Lisa Marie Presley's Son Benjamin Keough Dead at 27 from Apparent Suicide

    Lisa Marie Presley's son and Elvis Presley's grandson, Benjamin Keough, has died of an apparent suicide ... TMZ has learned.
    Law enforcement sources tell us Ben appears to have died Sunday in Calabasas from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
    Not much is known about him other than the fact that he's got a super-famous family. He's the son of Lisa and musician Danny Keough -- and his sister is actress Riley Keough, who's been in a number of indie and horror films over the years, including 2019's "The Lodge."
    Of course ... his grandparents are Elvis and Priscilla Presley.


    Ben has kept a low profile throughout the years, but the one thing he's well-known for is looking almost identical to his famous grandfather, The King himself.
    Lisa addressed the similarity, saying ... "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." She even wrote a song about Ben called "Storm and Grace." Storm's his middle name.


    He was also a musician ... he even struck a record deal back in 2009 worth $5 million. He's got a couple acting credits under his name, but aside from that, not much else is known about him publicly. He has few social media accounts.
    One of the last times he was seen out with the family was during Elvis' 40-year death anniversary during a vigil at Graceland.
    Benjamin was just 27.
    RIP

    How will Lisa cope with this? This is just a sledgehammer and will affect her forever....I am not usually moved by anything in the news, but this shocked me. Looking at his few photos, especially the one with his mother and sisters that Lisa titled "Mama bear with her cubs", its as if he is not "there". Maybe he has had problems all his life with who he is and .....well I cannot speculate, thats wrong of me..But how tragic, how awfully tragic.

    She's already unhinged as it is, I wouldn't be surprised if she does an Anna Nicole & manages to somehow off herself within the next year (or less).

    This family is tragic.

    Default Benjamin Keough, Elvis Presley Grandson, dead at 27

    Geez, so young. Wonder what happened.

    Elvis Presley's grandson Benjamin Keough has died, a representative for his mother, Lisa Marie Presley, said. He was 27.
    Keough died in Calabasas, California, Roger Widynowski told CNN Sunday.

    The representative said he did not have further details on the circumstances of Keough's death, including the date.
    Presley is "entirely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated," Widynowski said in a statement, "but trying to stay strong for her 11 year old twins and her oldest daughter Riley."

    ^^^Yes, to the Anna Nicole situation.
    All the Elvis money and fame did nothing to give his family (mental) stability or happiness.
    And Lisa-Marie has been so instable already, before.

    It's very sad. I don't even want to criticise this family anymore. It's like they are cursed.
    I have some famous friends and I have mostly not famous friends.

    Extremely sad, but somehow not a total surprise.

    My heart is with her. Having lost a son, I know her pain, but not the searing pain of one lost to suicide. I am so very sorry for her.

    I'm getting the same feelings as with Carrie Fisher's death and what Debbie Reynolds' reaction would be; that she would soon follow. She died the day after Carrie. I certainly hope they won't leave Lisa's side after this tragedy.

    sylkyn I'm so sorry.

    It looks like the US is getting close to implementing 988 as the new National suicide prevention hotline number. Makes it a lot easier than looking up the 800 number. I think this will save lives. at least I hope it does. suicide is something that absolutely destroys families.
