Benjamin Keough Wiki – Biography

Benjamin Keough was the Elvis Presley’s grandson and Lisa Marie Presley’s son has died from a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Benjamin was found by authorities in California on Sunday in his Calabasas mansion. Lisa Marie’s manager, 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.’

Benjamin was the son of Lisa Marie – the only child of superstar Elvis – and musician Danny Keough. Lisa Marie had previously spoken of her son’s similarity to her dad Elvis, calling their resemblance ‘uncanny’.

In 2009 Benjamin, who kept a low public profile, was reported to have signed a $5million record deal with Universal.

‘The music will be nothing like Elvis, nothing like him at all,’ he had said in an interview at the time.

But Peter LoFrumento, Executive Vice President of Universal Music Group, later told People: ‘This story is totally untrue.’

In 2015 Benjamin shared a picture of an Elvis outfit he had bought, writing on Instagram: ‘I purchased a piece of grandad today from a collector. He wore it in 1974. I feel a lot closer to him now.’

Lisa Marie and Benjamin were said to be so close that, in 2009, the mother and son got matching tattoos. In 2012 she wrote song Storm And Grace about her son.

In June last year, the mom of four shared a sweet snap with all of her children, writing: ‘Mama Lion with the cubs.’

Lisa Marie, 51, who has three other children, said: ‘Ben does look so much like Elvis. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.’

Police said they responded to a ‘rescue response’ call at about 6:30 am Sunday, adding: ‘Upon their arrival, they located the victim suffering from one gunshot wound to the upper torso.’

‘The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.’
