Benjamin, Elvis’s grandson, died on July 12. The Los Angeles Forensic Office has already determined the causes.
On July 12, the world was shocked by the death of Elvis Presley’s grandson, Benjamin Keough, who was found lifeless in his Calabasas home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office determined it was suicide.
At that time Lisa Marie preferred to remain silent. His representative assured that he was “Completely devastated, inconsolable and more than devastated”though he was trying to stay strong “For the sake of her 11-year-old twins and older daughter Riley”.
Now, Lisa decided it was time to go out to honor her son.
Elvis’s daughter dedicated a letter to him on social networks on the day that would have been the young man’s 28th birthday.
“My beautiful angel. I have always adored the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in heaven. My heart and my soul went with you “, the singer began in an Instagram post.
“The depth of pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same. Please wait for me my love and take my hand as I stay to continue protecting and helping your little sisters and being there for Riley “he continued.
“I know you would want that. Happy birthday, my sweet boy. You were too good for this world ”, concluded the singer, who added an image of her son Benjamin blowing out the candles on the previous birthday.
Benjamin’s older sister had already moved everyone with her words. “I forget that you are not here. I can’t cry for fear of never being able to stop. A pain that is new to me. My little brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness of life. Soulmate. Protective. Too sensitive for this cruel world. I hope you give me the strength to bear the immense hole you have left in my heart ”.
Priscilla Presley, Elvis’s ex-wife, had written after her grandson’s death: “These are some of my family’s darkest days. The shock over the loss of Ben has been devastating. Trying to put the pieces in their place of all possible because it has penetrated to the bottom of my soul. Every day I wake up I pray that it’s better. Then I think of my daughter and the pain she is going through, she, who is a great mother. “
“I think of Ben’s father, Danny, who is completely lost, because Ben was his only son. I think of Riley, so loving and so close to him. Harper and Finley, who adored him,” Priscilla continued. In addition, he cited a little-known member of the family: Navarone Garibaldi, his second son, 33, born from his relationship with Marco Garibaldi. “I think of Navarone, who is grieving deeply with loss and death. Rest in peace, Benjamin, you were very dear. “
Elvis Presley would have turned 85 in January. He died on August 16, 1977.
Lisa married Michael Jackson in the mid-1990s and after two years they separated. Later, she celebrated weddings with Danny Keough (with whom she had Benjamin), Michael Lockwood and Nicolas Cage. None of its four links ended well. The last divorce also produced a tough fight for custody of his daughters.
Another Lisa drama had to do with financial ruin. Almost two years ago he denounced his former manager, Barry Siegel, with whom he worked between 1993 and 2006. He accuses him of losing the fortune that he would have inherited from the management of his father’s vast estate.
