Lisa Marie Presley revealed her “grief” and “destruction” after the passing of her son in her final social media post.
Thursday, the only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley died at the hospital after suffering a heart arrest at her Calabasas, California, residence. She was 54 years old.
And in her final Instagram post before her death, the “Lights Out” singer discussed life after the devastating death of her son Benjamin Keough.
Keough died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on July 12, 2020, at his home in Calabasas, California, at the age of 27.
Celebrating “National Grief Awareness Day” in August, the singer wrote an essay for People magazine about the enormous grief she continues to experience following the untimely murder of her son.
She wrote to her 583,000 followers, “Today is National Grief Awareness Day, and since I have been living in the horrific reality of its unrelenting grips since my son’s death two years ago, I thought I would share a few things to be aware of regarding grief.” “If you cannot help yourself, perhaps you can help someone else who is grieving.”
Presley stated that “grief does not cease or disappear in any way.”
In her final Instagram post, Lisa Presley discussed life after her son Benjamin Keough’s (second from right) terrible death.
“Grief is something that you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, despite what certain individuals or our culture would have us believe. “You do not “get over it” and you do not “move on.”
She acknowledged feeling “judged and blamed” for the loss of her kid.
Others will condemn and blame you as well, even discreetly or behind your back, which is crueler and more hurtful than anything else, she wrote.

Presley and ex-husband Danny Keough also have a daughter, Riley Keough. She and her ex-husband Michael Lockwood co-parented their 13-year-old twin daughters Finley Aaron Love and Harper Vivienne Anne.
The loss of Benjamin, according to Presley, “completely detonated and destroyed” her and her three daughters’ lives.
She commented, “Nothing, absolutely NOTHING takes away the pain, but sometimes finding support can help you feel a little less alone.”
“It’s a true choice to keep going, one that I must make every single day and that is, to put it mildly, continuously tough… “However, I continue to pursue my girls,” she continued.
The Medical Examiner’s Office of Los Angeles County deemed Benjamin’s death a suicide.
Benjamin was laid to rest in Graceland beside his grandfather and other family members three months after his death.
