In a tweet, Leah Remini hoped that Lisa Marie is now ‘at peace resting with her son and father.’

Lisa Marie’s famous father Elvis Presley died of a heart attack in 1977 at the age of 42, while her late son Benjamin Keough, 27, died by suicide in July 2020. 

‘I’m heartbroken over the passing of Lisa Marie Presley,’ Remini began. ‘Lisa did not have an easy life as some may think.’

The King Of Queens star concluded her post by writing that Lisa Marie’s ‘mom Priscilla, her three daughters Riley, Finley and Harper, are in my prayers.’

The couple formed a close bond with the Presleys while promoting Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic in which Tom starred as music manager Colonel Tom Parker and actor Austin Butler portrayed the King of Rock and Roll.

‘Tom and I had spent some time with the family during the Elvis movie promotional tour,’ she wrote, adding that ‘Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation about the movie.

‘She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad. She had her gorgeous daughters Finley and Harper with her who made us all laugh.’

Rita and Tom then revealed that Lisa Marie was ‘gracious’ enough to give them a private tour of Graceland and ‘she made it feel like home to us.’

The couple then urged fans to listen to Lisa Marie’s music as Rita described her ‘sultry voice’ as having ‘a power and tenderness, that I have always loved.’ 

‘Our hearts and our prayers go out to Riley, Harper, Finley , Danny and Priscilla. A mother should never have to lose a child. Lisa Marie lost her precious son Benjamin, Priscilla loses her only daughter. It’s too much. Sending love to the family, prayers for peace and strength. Love, Rita and Tom,’ the post concluded.

Leann Rimes called the sudden death ‘heartbreaking’ and, similarly to Remini, hoped the embattled star is ‘at peace in her dad’s arms.’

She continued: ‘My heart goes out to her family too. too much grief in just a couple of years.’

‘She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment,’ the statement continued.

Presley’s death comes just two days after she was pictured with her mom at the Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hills Hilton where Austin Butler won a Best Actor award for his portrayal of her father in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis.

Sources told TMZ that Presley was found unresponsive in her bedroom by her housekeeper and that her ex-husband, Danny Keough, who she has been living with, performed CPR until paramedics arrived at the house.

The source added that ‘someone administered epinephrine’ – more commonly known as adrenaline – at the scene at least one time in order to help Presley regain a pulse.

Epinephrine, or adrenaline, is administered to treat many life-threatening conditions such as cardiac arrests, asthma attacks and allergic reactions.

LA County Sheriff’s Department told Dailymail.com: ‘Deputies from Lost Hills Station responded to an assistance request call LA County Fire, near the 9500 block of Normandy Drive in Calabasas regarding a female adult, approximately 55, for a medical emergency/female not breathing.

‘The female adult was transported by LA County Fire Department to a local area hospital where they were released to the hospital’s care’.

They would not confirm if the person was Lisa Marie, who will turn 55 next month, what hospital the individual was transported nor what was administered.

They told the Hollywood Reporter the fire department responded and was able to get a pulse on the female before she was transported to West Hills hospital.

Pictures of Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla, 77, rushing to hospital an hour after news broke of her daughter’s medical emergency have emerged.

She was seen making a quick dash to the entrance of the hospital where her only daughter was being treated to be by her side.

Lisa Marie is a singer and songwriter and has three children, including actress Riley Keough, 33.

Days before her death at 54 following a cardiac arrest, appeared to be unsteady while being interviewed on the red carpet at the 2023 Golden Globes, where she attended to support the film Elvis.

In the clip, Presley turned to her friend Jerry Schilling, 80, and said ‘I’m gonna grab your arm’ as she was asked questions ahead of the event by Extra host Billy Bush.

She appeared to talk slowly and slurred her words while responding to questions about the film’s star Austin Butler, the aspects of the role he mastered, and the storms and flooding in Southern California

Bush predicted ‘a wonderful night for Elvis’ in the beginning of the interview, in which Lisa stood next to longtime friend Schilling, a talent manager who worked closely with Elvis.

Bush asked her if she had gotten to know Butler, at which point she told Schilling ‘I’m gonna grab your arm’ and locked her right arm with Schilling’s left arm.

In the chat, Lisa said that she thought Butler nailed the ‘characteristics [and] the talking without doing it like in a caricature way like it’s been done in the past.’

She added, ‘It’s kind of done in sort of a funny, joking way, the way [Elvis] spoke, but Austin actually got it and did it perfectly without making it comical.’

Schilling noted Butler ‘didn’t overdo’ aspects of his performance as Elvis.

Bush asked Lisa if she had lived in the Montecito-Santa Barbara area – which was battered earlier this week by storms and flooding – and she said she ‘did at one point’, noting that the results of the storm were ‘really awful.’

The interview wrapped up with Lisa telling Bush that Butler was making his way down the entrance.
