Lisa Marie Presley has been fairly quiet following the tragic news of her late son’s death by suicide. Benjamin Keough died at the age of 27 earlier this year, and a rep for Lisa Marie says that she’s absolutely devastated. Priscilla Presley also posted a statement to social media following the sad news.
“Trying to put all the pieces together of all the possible whys has penetrated my soul. Each day I wake up I pray it will get better,” Presley writes in a statement at the time. “I think of my daughter and the pain she is going through as she was a doting mother. Ben’s father, Danny, who is completely lost, as Ben was his only son. Riley, so loving and so close to him; Harper and Finley, who absolutely adored Ben. Navarone, who struggles deeply with loss and death. Rest In Peace Ben, you were loved.”

According to OK Magazine, Priscilla has been doing everything she can to help her daughter and grandkids navigate through the loss. A source tells them, “The sense of loss has been unbearable. Priscilla is leading the charge making sure everyone is eating and taking care of themselves as best they can. It’s been such a blessing to have her in their lives.”
