Lisa Marie Presley, the singer-songwriter and only child of Elvis Presley, died on Thursday after a medical emergency and a brief hospitalization. She was 54.
Earlier in the day, Priscilla Presley said in a statement that her daughter had been receiving medical attention but did not share more information.
“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital. She is now receiving the best care,” Priscilla Presley wrote on Facebook earlier Thursday. “Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time.”
Her death in a Los Angeles hospital was confirmed by her mother, Priscilla, a few hours after her daughter was rushed to the hospital after having a medical emergency at home.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley said in a statement. “She was the most passionate, strong, and loving woman I have ever known.”
LA County Fire Department spokesperson Kaitlyn Aldana told CNN that emergency responders were dispatched to a call in the 5000 block of Normandy Dr in Agoura Hills, California, at 10:37 am local time for a cardiac arrest. Aldana would not confirm the name of the patient, who could not be identified due to privacy laws, but said the patient was taken to a local hospital at 11:17 am.
Lisa Marie Presley was most recently seen on Tuesday night at the Golden Globe Awards, which she attended with her mother to support the Baz Luhrmann film “Elvis,” about her late father.
