Priscilla Presley has broken her silence to People magazine about her daughter Lisa Marie, who was rushed to the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest.
“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital,” Priscilla said.
“She is now receiving the best care.
“Please keep her and our family in your prayers.
“We feel the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time.”
Lisa Marie’s daughter Riley Keough recently told People magazine that her mother was an “inspiration” and “a very strong, smart woman.”
She said: “I was raised by somebody who did their own thing and didn’t really care what other people thought.
“She was definitely inspirational to me.”
According to TMZ:
A source with direct knowledge tells us it was Lisa Marie’s housekeeper who found her unresponsive in her bedroom.
At about the same time, Lisa’s ex-husband, Danny Keough, got home from taking the kids to school and performed CPR until paramedics arrived.
54-year-old Lisa Maria is the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
She was rushed to the hospital earlier today after suffering cardiac arrest, as Slay News reported.

The news was first reported by TMZ.
That media outlet said Lisa Marie Presley went into “full arrest” and that “someone administered epinephrine at the scene” in order to help her regain a pulse.
TMZ also reports that “paramedics performed CPR Thursday at her house in Calabasas” before rushing her to the hospital for further treatment.
According to People:
EMTs responded to the singer’s home in Calabasas, California on Thursday for a possible cardiac arrest, just two days after Presley attended the 2023 Golden Globes with mom Priscilla and Elvis star Austin Butler.
TMZ reported some good news, they claimed the emergency workers were able to regain a pulse before Presley was transported to the hospital.
According to Variety:
Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis’ only child, ran Elvis Presley Enterprises, which had been estimated at a value of $100 million. In 2005, she sold the majority of the estate’s business shares to Industrial Media, but retained control of Graceland, her father’s estate.
She released three studio albums in the 2000s and early 2010s, and is the mother of actor Riley Keough, who has starred in films like “Zola,” “The Devil All the Time” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
Her son Benjamin Keough died in 2020 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
