That’s what I care most about. I keep them close to me and make sure they are happy and healthy. We all kind of hold each other up; we are all each other’s best friends. I’m theirs but I am also their mother. That’s kind of that.”

The 33-year-old made her movie debut in the 2010 film, The Runaways and went on to star in several other movies such as The Girlfriend Experience, Mad Max: Fury Road, Magic Mike, and the upcoming Amazon Prime series Daisy Jones & the Six. She also made her directorial debut with the movie, War Pony in 2022.
Benjamin Keough was the second child of Marie Presley and her first husband whom they welcomed in 1992. He was reputed to have striking similarities with his grandfather, Elvis Presley.
He was an actor, known for his role in the 2017 film, Rod & Barry before dying tragically in 2020 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 27.
Brandon Howard, Benjamin’s friend revealed to People that he had mental health issues and the pressure to live his life in the shadow of his grandfather. “Sometimes he struggled with depression,” Brandon told the outlet. “It’s a tough thing when you have a lot of pressure with your family and living up to a name and an image. It’s a lot of pressure. It’s almost like you’re pressured into having to be a musician, having to be an actor. It was good for him to go around the world and discover himself and have his own friends.”
At the time of his death, his late mother shared a tribute to him on Instagram. “My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven,” Lisa Marie Presley captioned an image of Benjamin. “My heart and soul went with you. The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day.”
Harper and Finley Lockwood
Marie Presley and her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood welcomed their twins, Harper and Finley on October 7, 2008. The twins were placed under protective custody with their grandmother for a few months between 2016 and 2017 because of the ugly divorce process of their parents.
The late singer loved her last daughters and gushed over them on her social media showing how close their bond was. Marie Presley revealed that she and the twins adopted some puppies from a shelter during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020 and said the experience was “exhausting but so rewarding.”
