Lisa Marie Presley’s son and Elvis Presley’s grandson, Benjamin Keough, has died of an apparent suicide.
Law enforcement state that Ben appears to have died Sunday in Calabasas from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Not much is known about him other than the fact he’s from a 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.”
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 liking his famous grandfather, Elvis Presley.
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. 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 is his middle name.
He was also a musician he struck a record deal back in 2009 worth $5 million. He’s got a couple acting credits under his name.
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.
Lisa’s manager, Roger Widynowski, says “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.”
