  • Lisa Marie Presley, only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, died Thursday at age 54.
  • She is to be buried next to her son, Benjamin Keough, in Graceland, Tennessee.
  • Austin Butler, who plays Elvis in the Baz Luhrmann biopic, said he was “broken” after his death.

Lisa Marie Presley will be buried alongside her late son and close father, Elvis Presley, at Graceland, Tennessee.

The funeral arrangements come after Priscilla Presley confirmed her only daughter with the late king of rock ‘n’ roll died on Thursday after being hospitalized. Lisa Marie was 54 years old.

“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” a representative for the Presley family previously told Insider. “They are deeply grateful for everyone’s support, love and prayers, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

According to ABC News, a representative for Riley Keough, Lisa Marie’s oldest daughter, said her mother will be buried next to her son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020, at the Presley family’s Graceland estate in Memphis.

Graceland is also the final resting place of Elvis, who died in 1977 at the age of 42. According to BBC News, Lisa Marie visited the estate on January 8, days before her death, to pay tribute to her father on what would have been his 88th birthday.

Representatives for the Keough and Presley family did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.

Lisa Marie struggled after her son’s death and partly blamed herself, Insider previously reported.

In an essay published by People magazine last August, Presley explained how “painful” it was to be judged when a loved one died “prematurely, unnaturally, or tragically,” especially if that person was your child.

“I’m already fighting with myself and fighting relentlessly and chronically, blaming myself every day and it’s hard enough to live with,” Presley wrote. “But others will judge and blame you too, even in secret or behind your back, which is even more cruel and painful on top of everything else.”

Following Lisa Marie’s death, several relatives and friends paid tribute to the singer-songwriter, including “Elvis” director Baz Luhrmann and her ex-husband Nicholas Cage.

On Friday, Austin Butler, who played Elvis in Luhrmann’s 2022 biopic, told People that his “heart is completely broken” for Lisa Marie’s family.

“I am forever grateful for the time I had the chance to be near her bright light and will forever cherish the quiet times we shared,” he said. “His warmth, love and authenticity will be forever remembered.”
