2020 is the year of unpredictability. As we are getting to hear some of the most unexpected heart-wrenching news for which we were not prepared. Elvis Presley’s grandson Benjamin Keough has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Calabasas, California on Sunday. He was only 27 years old.
Benjamin Keough was the son of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough who got divorced in 1994. As per the statement released by Lisa’s rep to E-News that she absolutely adored the boy and is completely devastated by her tragic loss.
“She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley” In 2019, Liza Marie Presley posted a picture with her kids on Twitter, captioning ‘Mama Lion with cubs’

Benjamin Keough had reportedly signed a USD 5 million record deal with Universal in 2009. The 27 years old Keough was also included in the footage of Liza’s 2012 music video for the ‘duet’ with Elvis for his 1954 song “I Love You Because”
Frank Sinatra’s eldest daughter Nancy Sinatra took to twitter to post her condolences to the family. Nancy wrote, “I have known you since before your mama gave birth to you, never dreaming you would have pain like this in your life. I’m so very sorry.”
Benjamin Keough’s death is surely a huge loss to the whole family. We hope Liza Marie Presley and other family members soon heal themselves from this tragic loss.
