Benjamin Keough, son of Lisa Marie Presley and grandson of Elvis Presley, dead at 27


Rest in peace, Benjamin Keough. The son of Lisa Marie Presley and grandson of Elvis Presley has died, ET confirms.

"Lisa Marie is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter, Riley," Presley's rep tells ET. "She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."

Unlike his sister, actress Riley Keough, Benjamin had stayed out of the public eye for the most part. However, last June, Benjamin made headlines as fans marveled at how much he resembled his grandfather, Elvis, in a family photo his mother shared.

"Mama Lion with cubs," Presley captioned the black-and-white photo, which showcases her wrapping her arms around Benjamin, Riley, and her youngest kids, twin daughters Finley and Harper.

Benjamin, whose father is Danny Keough, was a musician himself. He reportedly signed a $5 million deal with Universal Records in 2009 to record up to five albums.
