Lisa Marie’s Chilling Final Post About ‘Grief,’ Feeling ‘Destroyed’

Lisa Marie Presley’s final social media post saw the singer open up about living with “grief” and feeling “destroyed” following the death of her son.

The only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley died in the hospital Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California. She was 54.

In her final Instagram post before her death, the “Lights Out” singer talked about life after her son Benjamin Keough’s tragic death.

Keough died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of 27 on July 12, 2020, at his home in Calabasas.

Marking “National Grief Awareness Day” in August, the singer wrote an essay for People magazine about the overwhelming grief she continued to feel over her son’s sudden death.

“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 in regard to grief for anyone who is interested,” she wrote to her 583,000 followers. “If not to help yourself but maybe to help another who is grieving.”

Presley said she found that “grief does not stop or go away in any sense.”

“Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.”

She admitted to feeling “judged and blamed” for her son’s death.

“I already battle with and beat myself up tirelessly and chronically, blaming myself every single day and that’s hard enough to now live with, but others will judge and blame you too, even secretly or behind your back which is even more cruel and painful on top of everything else,” she wrote.

Presley also shared daughter Riley Keough with ex-husband Danny Keough. She shared her 13-year-old twin daughters, Finley Aaron Love and Harper Vivienne Anne, with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

Presley said the lives of her three daughters, in addition to hers, were “completely detonated and destroyed” by Benjamin’s death.

“Nothing, absolutely NOTHING takes away the pain, but finding support can sometimes help you feel a little bit less alone,” she wrote.

“It’s a real choice to keep going, one that I have to make every single day and one that is constantly challenging, to say the least … But I keep going for my girls,” she added.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Benjamin’s death a suicide.

Three months after his passing, Benjamin was laid to rest at Graceland beside his grandfather and several other family members.

    For all who grieve, knowing the Lord Jesus Christ is the only true relief from the pain. Losing loved ones, no matter the reason, is difficult, and it does take time, there is no procedure or time limit for grieving. It is as individual as people are. But a good support system, and belief system are definitely pluses for anyone to move forward. May all who grieve find Jesus and with Him the peace that passes all understanding. God’s blessings.

    does anyone really know how He died……for real. if it was suicide….then that is what hurts…..to love someone who does that….the pain of knowing that your child was so miserable and sick inside that they killed themselves….is pain and misery for all family members and loved ones….you wish you could have seen it and helped that person….also sometimes depression is inherited…i know i have it in my fly and have had it…i did without meds….and it was very hard…some people cannot handle the pain from it believe me…it affects your moods and your entire body….getting help for it and being taught by a mental expert how to deal with it…helps a great deal….i know i did that and im still here and im going on 72. my mother had it and she died at 87yrs old…so there are people who make it….also …BELIEVE IN GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST helps you to realize that your pain is not for nothing…it hones you into a person that is ready for the afterlife……its sad that maybe lisa marie didnt have that knowledge….if she did die of a heart attack….ALSO REMEMBER ELVIS’S MOTHER…she died of a heart attack at a young age…i think she was 42yrs old like elvis….so there might be heart issues in her family….and the strain she had losing her son,,,,,affected her heart……poor thing….now her daughters are alone but at least they have each other….im so glad she had children…..but lisa needed mental help to calm herself and she needed clergy to help her though this…..i am so sorry for her loss….the pain she went through….i can imagine…the loss of a child is the worst thing ever for anyone…

    This why it’s so so important to teach your children about knowing who Jesus Christ really is and where you will spend Eternity.

    I always thought that having celebrity parents and being exposed to all kinds of weird instability was not good for kids to grow up in.

  • Bill says:

    Fame and notoriety take another life early. People strive for both and for so many who manage to attain it, for they and their family members, it seems like more of a curse.
