After the death of Lisa Marie Presley at the age of only 54, there is great dismay. Numerous celebrities expressed their sadness. Among them was Nicolas Cage, Presley’s ex-husband.
Sad news for Hollywood. On Thursday morning (January 12) it became known that the daughter of music legend Elvis Presley († 42) suffered cardiac arrest. According to TMZ, Lisa Marie Presley († 54) was found unconscious by her housekeeper after previously complaining of increasing abdominal pain. In the hospital, the singer was in critical condition and was partially in an artificial coma. A few hours later, the death of the only 54-year-old was confirmed. Numerous celebrities are now mourning.
Actor Nicolas Cage (59), for example, was deeply affected. He was one of the four husbands in Lisa Marie Presley’s life. As CNN reported, Cage said through his management: “This is devastating news. Lisa had the greatest laugh I have ever seen. She brightened up every room. I’m heartbroken,” said the 59-year-old. He added, “I find some comfort in the thought that she’s reunited with her son.” The singer’s son, Benjamin Keough, took his own life in 2020 at just 27 years old.
Sarah Ferguson (63) also said goodbye to her beloved friend. Under a joint post, they wrote: “I say hello to you every day and I love you and I will continue to say hello to you every day. You were my sister, a wonderful mother to Ben, Riley, Harper and Finley, and an extremely loving daughter to Priscilla. You have been my dearest friend for many years and I am here to support and love your family. I’m deeply sad, my sissy, you are in my heart,” said the 63-year-old.
This is a particularly difficult time for Priscilla Presley (77). The actress confirmed her daughter’s death to People magazine: “It is with a heavy heart that I share the devastating news that our beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has passed away,” the 77-year-old said. She emphasized: “She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to come to terms with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. There will be no further comment at this time.”
Linda Thompson (72), Elvis Presley’s ex-girlfriend, posted a childhood photo of the late singer with her father and wrote: “My heart is too heavy for words…”.
John Travolta (68) also found touching words for the loss of the only 54-year-old: “Lisa, my little one, I’m so sorry. I will miss you but I know I will see you again. My love and heart goes out to Riley, Priscilla, Harper and Finley.”
Actor Tom Hanks (66) and his wife Rita (66) also said goodbye via Instagram: “The sudden and shocking death of Lisa Marie Presley tonight breaks our hearts.” She and her husband would have some family time during Elvis -Spent film promotion tour. “Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation for the film,” the couple said.
Leah Remini, 52, tweeted: “I am heartbroken by the death of Lisa Marie Presley,” the King of Queens star said. “Lisa has not had an easy life as some might think. May she be in.” Rest in peace and be with her son and father. My prayers are with her mother, Priscilla, and her three daughters, Riley, Finley, and Harper.”
LeAnn Rimes (40) also wrote on Twitter: “How heartbreaking. I hope she finds peace in her father’s arms. My heart goes out to her family. Too much heartache in such a short time.”
“There’s heartbreak and there’s heartbreak,” tweeted Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, 55, alongside a picture with Lisa Marie Presley. The two collaborated on the song “Savior” in 2003. “Please send your prayers for her family and children at this difficult time. I really can’t find words to express how sad this is.”
Singer Pink (43) explained a joint photo on Instagram: “Oh, that hurts my heart”, and added: “Lisa Marie, you were unique.” She was “damn funny”, smart, sensitive, talented, loving, generous, judgmental, but always sincere and loyal, “and you loved your children,” she wrote. The world has lost a jewel. “May your soul rest in peace,” the post continues.
