The singer-songwriter had been seen just this week at an awards ceremony and was rushed to a California hospital’s intensive care unit for cardiac arrest. In a statement issued by her family, they said,

“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

Lisa Marie’s mother and the iconic crooner’s wife for six years until their divorce in 1973, Priscilla Presley, said in a statement to People magazine, “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us.”

Entertainment website TMZ had reported that Elvis’s famous daughter was in an induced coma and on life support. They have mentioned that on Thursday, she was discovered by her housekeeper “unresponsive” at her home in the celebrity-studded Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas.

Danny Keough, her husband who also lives at the property, performed CPR until paramedics arrived and transported her to the hospital.

The outlet said its sources stressed it had not been a suicide attempt by the singer-songwriter.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department, which runs paramedic services, would not confirm the identity of the patient. However, they told media that crews had attended a woman in her mid-50s suffering cardiac arrest just after 10:30 am (1830 GMT).

“I also want to thank our incredible producers and Warner Bros. and the Presley family. Thank you, guys. Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me. Lisa Marie and Priscilla, I love you forever.”
