The suicide of Benjamin Presley Keough is very tragic. My thoughts and condolences go out to Lisa Marie Presley and her entire family. Roger WidynowskiPresley’s representative Roger Widynowski said in a statement Sunday to The Associated Press that she was “heartbroken” after learning about the death of her son Benjamin Keough. He is the grandson of the late Elvis Presley.
Sad news from Lisa Marie Presley’s (52) family! The daughter of the late megastar Elvis Presley (✝42) has been in public for years. The singer tries her best to keep her private life out of the spotlight – but she made an exception only recently : Lisa and her four kids posed online. But now terrifying news is circulating: Lisa’s eldest son Benjamin Keough is believed to have committed suicide!
As TMZ now reports, Ben is said to have tragically committed suicide. Law enforcement officials said the 27-year-old died in Calabasas on Sunday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No further details are known so far, and the exact reasons for his alleged suicide are still unclear.
Just like his grandfather Elvis , Benjamin committed himself to music during his lifetime. In 2009 he was even able to secure a deal with a record label worth over four million euros. Otherwise the artist stayed out of the public eye. The last time fans saw him was on the 40th anniversary of his grandfather’s death.

He is son of Lisa Marie and musician Danny Keough. Lisa has previously spoken of her son’s similarity to her dad Elvis, calling it ‘uncanny’
She said: ‘Ben does look so much like Elvis. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.’
In January it was reported Presley, 51, and her ex husband Michael Lockwood have been engaged in a nasty custody battle over their 11 year old twin daughters, Finley and Harper.
