“To have sensed her wonderful presence was a privilege. And forever in her debt for the support she gave me and the entire Elvis family.”
DeJonge closed by expressing his affection for Priscilla, Riley, Harper, and Finley.
In the initial tweet that Luhrman, 60, shared, he described how Lisa Marie’s “kind embrace” consistently demonstrated her support for the project.
“Her sudden, shocking death has devastated people worldwide,” he continued. “I am certain that her fans around the world will join me in sending prayers of love and support to her mother, Priscilla, and her three beautiful daughters, Riley, Finley, and Harper.”

“My heart is completely shattered for Riley, Finley, Harper, and Priscilla at the tragic and unexpected loss of Lisa Marie,” the actor told E! News on Friday.
