Lisa Marie Presley‘s daughter Riley Keough has shared a very emotional and heartbreaking post after her brother died by suicide. Benjamin Keough was only 27 years old. While Riley is an actress, her late brother Benjamin decided to stay largely out of the spotlight. There are only rare public photos of him over the years.
Riley shared a series of photos of her brother in her tribute post. The last two photos show just how close the siblings were. In the caption, she asks Benjamin to give her the strength to endure this devastating loss.

She wrote, “Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me. You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world.”
She continued, “I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you’ve left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. [I] hope you’re cradled in love. [I] hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can’t believe you’ve left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”
Reports say that Riley’s mother Lisa Marie is inconsolable, but trying to stay strong for Riley and her 11-year-old twins. Sending our condolences to the family and thinking of them through this heartbreaking loss.
