On January 12, Lisa Marie Presley died at the age of 54. The only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley died after several cardiac arrests. If the causes of his death remain a little unclear for the moment, rumors about his state of health a few days before his disappearance have recently suggested that the singer used a lot of opioids and that she had embarked on an extreme diet which would have made him lose more than 20 kg in just six weeks. Only a few days after his funeral, which took place on January 22, Priscilla Presley made a surprising decision when she challenged her daughter’s will. Indeed, the latter claims that the signature of an amendment dating from 2016 seems to her to be false. According to the document, Lisa Marie Presley would have decided to make changes about her heritage by changing the names. While she initially bequeathed her fortune to her mother and Barry Siegel, she eventually changed to the names of her children Benjamin and Riley Keough. However, the entire fortune would go to her daughter since her son committed suicide in 2020. This Monday, February 1, Lisa Marie Presley would have celebrated her 55th birthday. For the occasion, Priscilla Presley wanted to speak.
