On July 12, 2020 Lisa Marie Presley’s only son, Benjamin Keough, passed away at the age of 27. TMZ was the first report the news of his death, writing, “Ben appears to have died Sunday in Calabasas from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.” They later updated the report to indicate that Benjamin’s death was classified as a suicide.

After his death became public, Lisa Marie’s rep, Roger Widynowski, provided a statement on her behalf:

“She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley,” Roger said. “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”

Benjamin wasn’t only the love of Lisa Marie’s life, he was also the love of his older sister Riley Keough’s life, as she wrote on Instagram on August 7, 2020.

Riley and Benjamin were only four years apart and were the closest of friends. After Benjamin died, Riley wrote a tribute to him on Instagram and included a series of photos.

“I can’t believe you’ve left me,” she wrote. “Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.

As the first anniversary of Benjamin’s death approaches, Riley is remembering the last time he saw her little brother, which was on July 6, 2020.

A year ago this morning was the last time I got to see you,” Riley wrote on her Instagram Stories alongside a photo of the two of them. “I didn’t hug you properly because I thought you had COVID. I wish I’d hugged you properly. I miss you every day.
