Benjamin Keough, the only son of Elvis Presley’s only daughter, died of an apparent suicide
Keough, son of Lisa Maria Presley and musician Danny Keough, was 27 years old.
Law enforcement sources said Keough was found dead on Sunday from a gunshot wound in Calabasas, California.
Lisa is the mother of 4 young children
Benjamin Keough’s elder sister is actress Riley Keu, and both come from Presley’s first marriage. Lisa Marie was later married to pop legend Michael Jackson and childless actor Nicholas Cage and had twin twins – now 11 – with her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood. She and Lockwood are now separated.
All we know about Benjamin
Little is known about the only grandson of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, who was born 15 years after the king’s death in 1977. While Lisa Marie continued her musical career, and her sister Riley was passionate about acting and modeling, Keough tried his hand for some time in both music and acting. But the $ 5 million registration contract in 2009 did not allow for the recording, and his successes in the film include the sound of Rod and Barry’s animation and the appearance in the 2005 television movie Elvis Presley.
Lisa Maria Presley wrote the song “Storm & Grace” on him. The storm was Benjamin’s middle name.
