Reports state that Keough had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound

Benjamin Keough, who is the son of singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and singer-songwriter Danny Keough has died at the age of 27.


Benjamin, was known for looking just like his grandfather. Lisa’s manager Roger Wudynowski confirmed the death and spoke to USA TODAY, that she is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but is still trying to stay strong for her other children, 31-year-old daughter Riley, and her 11-year-old twins, Finley and Vivienne, whom she had with guitarist Michael Lockwood.


More on Benjamin

TMZ reported the incident and revealed Benjamin’s cause of death to be a self inflicted gunshot wound on Sunday in Calabasas, California.

Lisa Marie had a special bond with her son and spoke about how they had bonded over getting Celtic eternity knit tattoos at the same spot. In 2012, Benjamin starred with his siblings when Lisa Marie remade Elvis’ 1954 hit “I Love You Because.” Benjamin was first noticed for his striking resemblance to his grandfather for the first time in 2012, backstage at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, and Lisa Marie recounted about how people were taking pictures with him at that time. She revealed that she gets overwhelmed as well while looking at him sometimes.


In 2013, during an interview with The Huffington Post, she was asked if Benjamin would be foraying into music, and she replied that she’s going to let him do what he wants and will be leaving it entirely to him.

The last family picture we saw was when Lisa Marie posted it on her Twitter account, which featured Benjamin and his siblings. It was captioned “Mama Lion with cubs.” His resemblance to his grandfather was what was commented the most.
