Riley Keough, the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, paid a touching tribute to her late mother on her first Mother’s Day since her passing. Keough shared a heartwarming photograph on her Instagram page featuring her mother and father, Danny Keough, holding her as an infant. She expressed her gratitude for having such a loving mother and shared the post with her followers.
Lisa Marie Presley’s Life and Legacy
Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, passed away on January 12, 2021, after suffering from cardiac arrest. She had four children, including Riley, who was her oldest child from her relationship with Danny Keough. The former couple also had a son, Benjamin, who unfortunately died by suicide in 2020. Lisa Marie then gave birth to twins Finley and Harper Lockwood with husband Michael Lockwood in 2008, eight years before their split.
Grief and Family Tension after Lisa Marie’s Passing
At her mother’s funeral, Riley was so filled with grief that she had her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, read her eulogy. The eulogy revealed that the two had secretly welcomed a daughter, although it is unclear when she was born. Since Lisa Marie’s passing, there have been tensions within the Presley-Keough family. Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie’s mother, contested the validity of a “purported 2016 amendment” to the will just days after her daughter’s death. This motion removed Priscilla as a trustee and named Riley as the trust controller of Graceland, Elvis’ mansion-turned-tourist attraction in Memphis, as well as 15% ownership of the late singer’s estate. According to sources, Riley and Priscilla are no longer on speaking terms after Priscilla challenged the will. This has caused a strain in their relationship during this difficult time.
A Final Word
The passing of Lisa Marie Presley was a great loss to her family and the world. Her daughter Riley Keough’s touching tribute is a testament to the loving relationship they shared. Although tensions have arisen within the family since Lisa Marie’s passing, one can hope that they will be able to reconcile and heal together.
