Elvis Presley’s Grandson Benjamin Keough Has Passed Away
Elvis Presley’s grandson and son of Lisa Marie Presley Benjamin Keough has died at the age of 27. A representative for his mother confirmed the death news.
Representative Roger Widynowski shared a statement. Roger said “[Lisa Marie Presley] 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.” However, the statement did not explore the cause of death.
Benjamin was the son of musician Danny Keough. Danny and Lisa Marie divorced in 1994. Benjamin’s brother Riley Keough was a popular actor at that time. Benjamin signed a $5million record deal with Universal music company in 2009.
Lisa Marie once said about Benjamin, “Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage.” She also said, “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.”
