Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis, has died aged 54.

Presley followed in her father’s musical footsteps and released three albums of her own, with two of them reaching the top 10 of the Billboard 200 album charts.

She also had a series of high-profile relationships, having been married to the King of Pop Michael Jackson, actor Nicholas Cage, musician Danny Keough and guitarist Michael Lockwood.

She was last seen on Tuesday at the Golden Globes awards, where she was celebrating Austin Butler’s award-winning performance as her father in the film Elvis.

However, her mother, Priscilla Presley, has now confirmed the sad news that she has passed away.

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.

“We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss.”

This news comes after the ‘Lights Out’ singer was rushed to hospital after suffering from a cardiac arrest, as reported by TMZ.

According to the outlet, Presley was found unresponsive in her bedroom by her housekeeper.

At the same time, her ex-husband Keough, who also lived with Presley, had just got home and performed CPR on her until the paramedics arrived.

TMZ also added that she had gone into full arrest and was administered epinephrine – a form of adrenaline – at the scene to help her regain a pulse.

Tributes for Presley have been pouring in, with Grease star John Travolta writing on his Instagram: “Lisa baby girl, I’m so sorry. I’ll miss you but I know I’ll see you again.

“My love and heart goes out to Riley, Priscilla, Harper and Finley.”

Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks, who starred in the recent Elvis film as Colonel Tom Parker, posted a joint statement on Wilson’s Instagram.

Accompanied by a series of photos of the couple with Presley, they wrote: “Our hearts are broken with the sudden and shocking passing of Lisa Marie Presley tonight.

“Lisa Marie was so honest and direct, vulnerable, in a state of anticipation about the movie. She spoke so eloquently about her father, what the movie meant to her, that it was a celebration of her dad.

“She had her gorgeous daughters Finley and Harper with her who made us all laugh.

“She privately showed us her home, Graceland, and she made it feel like home to us. She was so gracious to us, Austin [Butler], Baz [Luhrmann], and guests.

“Our hearts and our prayers go out to Riley, Harper, Finley, Danny and, Priscilla.

“A mother should never have to lose a child. Lisa Marie lost her precious son Benjamin, Priscilla loses her only daughter. It’s too much.

“Sending love to the family, prayers for peace and strength. Love, Rita and Tom.”
