What Was Lisa Marie Presley Cause of Death?
Authorities told NBC News that on Thursday morning, the Los Angeles Fire Department was called to Calabasas, California, regarding a woman who was in cardiac arrest and not breathing. That woman was Lisa Marie Presley, who was brought to the hospital.
According to the American Heart Association, cardiac arrest is a medical emergency where the heart suddenly stops beating, and is distinct from a heart attack, which is caused by a disruption in blood supply to the heart.
Kaitlyn Aldana, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department, told CNN that at 10:37 a.m. local time, firefighters were sent to the 5000 block of Normandy Dr. in Agoura Hills after receiving reports of a cardiac arrest. Aldana said the patient was transferred to a local hospital at 11:17 a.m., but she would not confirm the patient's name because of privacy restrictions.
According to CNN, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department responded to a medical emergency this morning and supported fire personnel, but the Sheriff's Department also refused to identify the identity of the patient.
Golden Globes Award
Lisa Marie passed away just two days after attending the Golden Globes with her mother to cheer on Austin Butler, who won Best Actor in a Drama Film for his depiction of her father in Elvis. “I love you forever,” Butler said to Lisa Marie during his Golden Globes speech.
In a ceremony held four days prior on the front lawn of her childhood home, Graceland, in Memphis, Tennesse, Lisa Marie celebrated her father's 88th birthday, telling fans, “This year has been an incredible year. The movie is incredible. I’m very proud of it, and I hope you are too.”
Kristen Sainato heard the news of Elvis Presley‘s death on Thursday as she and her husband were on vacation in Memphis from Cleveland. At the Jan. 8 celebration of her father's birthday at Graceland, where she met Presley, she donned a black jacket with the famous TCB lightning bolt on the back. Sainato left a flower arrangement at the Graceland entrance.
The “horrific reality” of Presley's grief over the suicide of her son Benjamin Keough in 2020 was the subject of a recent piece she wrote for People magazine. Presley is the mother of twins and actor Riley Keough.
A Glimpse Into Lisa Marie Presley Life
On February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee, Lisa Marie Presley was born. Her parents divorced when she was 4 years old, and her father passed away when she was 9 years old, making for a difficult childhood. Actor Michael Edwards, Priscilla's partner after their divorce, allegedly sexually molested Lisa Marie for three years beginning when she was 12 years old, as stated in an interview Lisa Marie gave to Playboy in 2003.
Lisa Marie is said to have been reared as a Scientologist but to have secretly left the religion between 2012 and 2014, according to many publications.
Lisa Marie was made a co-heir to Elvis Presley's inheritance alongside her grandfather and great-grandmother after the King's untimely passing in 1977. Lisa Marie exclusively acquired the inheritance on her 25th birthday in 1993, at which time it was estimated to be worth $100 million, up from a reported $5 million when Priscilla took over as trustee under Elvis's will.
Lisa Marie, at 35 years old, released her first solo rock album, To Whom It May Concern, in 2003. Artists such as Billy Corgan, David Campbell, Jon Brion, Matt Chamberlain, Mike Elizondo, Abe Laboriel Jr., and Wendy Melvoin contributed to the album's success; it eventually went gold and reached position five on the Billboard 200 chart.
Her next two albums, 2005's Now What (which peaked at No. 9 and featured a cover of Don Henley's “Dirty Laundry,” an apparent jab at the tabloids' constant scrutiny of her personal life), and 2012's T Bone Burnett-produced Storm & Grace (which featured the track “So Long,” an apparent jab at the Church of Scientology), also received generally positive reviews.
