Elvis Presley's 27-year-old grandson Benjamin has died
Lisa Marie Presley's son and grandson of Elvis Presley, Benjamin Keough, has been found dead at the age of 27.
According to reports Benjamin was found in Calabasas, California, apparently dying by suicide.
Benjamin, who bears a striking resemblance to his late grandfather, was a brother to actress Riley Keough and son to musician Danny Keough who Lisa Marie divorced in 1994. Previously speaking about his similarities to Elvis, his mother Lisa Marie once said "Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage." She added, "Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny."
Lisa Marie Presley's manager has said, "She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11 year old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."
If you have been affected by this or need to talk to someone please contact Samaritans helpline 116 123 or Aware helpline 1800 80 48 48 or Pieta House on 1800 247 247.
