After Priscilla Presley broke her silence and released a statement about the real condition of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, she confirmed the death of her only daughter. Lisa Marie was 54.
Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital due to cardiac arrest Thursday, January 12. Elvis Presley's only child was reportedly in critical condition and on life support.
In a statement to BuzzFeed News, the actress-entrepreneur and the Presley family said they were "shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie." Despite what happened, they were all grateful for the support, love, and prayers they received. They continued asking for privacy during this very difficult time.
Lisa Marie was reportedly rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center after undergoing full cardiac arrest. Her mother, Priscilla, was later seen rushing to her daughter's side while other family members gathered outside the hospice.
In a statement to The Post, the "Dallas" alum assured fans that her child is "receiving the best care" after the health scare. She later confirmed that her "beloved daughter" was rushed to the hospital and asked everyone to keep her and their family in their prayers.
She concluded her statement by saying that they all feel the prayers from around the world. She later asked for privacy at this time. TMZ, which broke the news, reported that Elvis' sole heir is "in an induced coma and was given a temporary pacemaker."
The publication added that EMTs responded to a call from Lisa Marie's home in Calabasas, California. At the time, the 54-year-old was reportedly found not breathing.
Hence, paramedics quickly performed CPR and administered epinephrine, a hormone and neurotransmitter to restore cardiac rhythm, before rushing her to the hospital. A LA Country Fire Department representative told Page Six that the first responders arrived at the scene 30 minutes before she was sent to the ICU.
The rep revealed they were dispatched at 10:37 a.m. after receiving a cardiac arrest call from "the 5900 block of Normandy Drive in the city of Agoura." They then arriaved at 10:43 a.m. and transported one person at 11:17 a.m. The patient was described a female aged 55.
Before the surprising medical emergency happened, Lisa Marie was still able to attend the recent Golden Globes with her mom, Priscilla, to show their support to Austin Butler, who nabbed the Best Actor award for portraying their patriarch's life in the biopic "Elvis."
In his speech, the actor thanked the two women for their continued support while remaining in character. He was grateful to the Presley family for opening their hearts, memories, and home to him.
"Lisa Marie and Priscilla, I love you forever," he declared. At one point, Lisa Marie crashed his interview with Entertainment Weekly with his sister, Ashley Butler, asking if she photobombed them and later praised him for his perfect portrayal of her late father.
