Lisa Marie Presley – who died at 54 after a sudden cardiac arrest on Thursday – will be laid to rest at Graceland next to her late son Benjamin Storm Presley Keough, it has been revealed.

‘Lisa Marie’s final resting place will be at Graceland, next to her beloved son Ben,’ a rep told The Hollywood Reporter.

Benjamin was 27 when he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2020, which triggered ‘unrelenting grief’ for his mother Lisa Marie.

Graceland is Elvis Presley’s famous Memphis mansion that will now be split between Lisa Marie’s 14-year-old twins Harper Vivienne and Finley and her actress daughter Riley Keough. 

In 2020, Benjamin was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland with his family including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, great-grandmother, Gladys Presley, great-grandfather, Vernon Presley and great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.

Elvis Presley bought Graceland in 1957, and on his death in 1977 it passed to his only child, Lisa Marie. She owned 100 per cent of the property, which will likely pass to her three children

Benjamin’s father is Lisa Marie’s first husband Danny Keough, whom she married in 1988 and divorced in 1994.

Lisa Marie was rushed to a hospital after paramedics were able to reestablish her pulse, TMZ reported on Thursday. 

But her mother Priscilla Presley shared a statement announcing that her daughter had died later in the day. 

‘It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,’ she said, according to People.

'The backyard of Graceland is a graveyard, basically,' she told Playboy in 2003.

In August last year Lisa Marie wrote an essay about her son Benjamin’s death to mark National Grief Awareness.

‘I can understand why people may want to avoid you once a terrible tragedy has struck. Especially a parent losing their child because it is truly your worst nightmare,’ she wrote in her essay, which was published by People

In the emotional essay, Lisa Marie admitted that she had kept her distance from the parents of other people whose children died by suicide, something that seemed to haunt her.

Benjamin’s burial was the first at Graceland in 40 years, since Elvis’ grandmother passed away in 1980, according to The Daily Memphian.

 It was also the first burial at Graceland since the iconic home was opened for public tours for The King of Rock and Roll’s fans. 

Benjamin’s sister, actress Riley, shared a number of photos of her late brother at the time, just weeks after his passing.

‘Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that’s new to me. You,’ she said.

‘There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector,’ she added.
