Lisa Marie Presley Rushed to Hospital After Cardiac Arrest in Calabasas

Must read

Lisa Marie Presley—the star-crossed singer-songwriter who’s twice pop royalty as daughter of Elvis Presley and ex-wife of Michael Jackson—has been rushed to the hospital after suffering a “full cardiac arrest,” according to TMZ.

The 54-year-old was stricken this morning at her home in Calabasas, two days after she appeared with her mother Priscilla at the Golden Globes in support of Austin Butler, nominated for an award for his portrayal of her father in Baz Luhrman’s Elvis.

A source “with direct knowledge” tells TMZ that Presley’s housekeeper found her unresponsive in her bedroom. At around the same time, Presley’s first husband, Chicago musician Danny Keough—who she’s been living with for a while—got home from taking the kids to school and performed CPR until paramedics arrived. The EMTs were able to reestablish a pulse before transporting Lisa Marie to the hospital.

The site further reports that Priscilla joined her at the hospital at 1:19 p.m. PST.

Presley has four children, including actress Riley Keough and Benjamin Keough. After a series of high-profile relationships, with Nicholas Cage among others, Presley entered her fourth marriage with her guitarist and producer Michael Lockwood, with whom she had twin girls Finely Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood. She and Lockwood divorced in 2021.

A member of the Church of Scientology from 1997 to 2014, when she officially broke ties, Presley was among the list of witnesses called by prosecutors in the rape trial of Scientologist and That 70s Show actor Danny Masterson. Prosectors had claimed that the church pressured Presley to speak to one of the accusers, a long time friend, in order to “calm things down.” In November, however, Deputy District Attorney Reinhold Mueller opted not to call her to the stand.
