Sadly, we reported that Benjamin Keough died several days ago. The 27-year-old’s death was ruled a suicide. Benjamin’s ex-girlfriend, Alexa Rohde spoke out about his death. She shared several photos of Benjamin and the two together with a special tribute.
Alexa wrote, “Benjamin Storm, YOU. Always happy in the sun and water. And a laugh that made everyone happier. You gave love to anyone who needed it. You were wise like a thousand year old man, but silly as a 5 year old.”

She continued, “You always said your favorite tarot card was the hermit, cause you could relate. You made the best jokes, and always broke the rules. You were my favorite person from the moment I met you. I wish we could’ve kept you forever Ben Ben. I hope you’re having all the delicious sushi in paradise💙words will never be enough.”
Benjamin is the son of Lisa Marie Presley and her ex Danny Keough. He was the grandson of Elvis Presley. Lisa’s representative released a statement about how devastated she is after the loss of her son.
“She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley,” Roger Widynowski said. “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
Lisa and Benjamin even had matching tattoos from 2009. The tattoos were of a “Celtic eternity knot” which Lisa once said represented “eternal love and connection.”
Sending our condolences to Alexa, Lisa, Danny, and all of Benjamin’s family and friends.
