Lisa Marie Presley‘s only son, Benjamin Keough, died on July 12, 2020. The 27-year-old’s death was classified as a suicide.
After Ben’s death, Lisa Marie was basically absent from social media. She started posting a little more this year around the release of the new Elvis movie.
Lisa Marie took her three daughters, Riley, Harper, and Finley, to see the film during an early screening. The girls loved the movie, and she believes Ben would have loved it too:
“What moved me to tears as well was watching Riley and Harper, and Finley afterwards, all 3 visibly overwhelmed in the best way possible way, and so filled with pride about their grandfather and his legacy in a way that I have not previously experienced,” Lisa Marie said. “It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see it. He would have absolutely loved it as well.”
Before she shared her thoughts about the Elvis movie, Lisa Marie opened up about the “hideous grief” she has been living with since Ben died:
“Hello everyone,” she said. “I haven’t posted in quite some time because there really isn’t much to say, as I am and will forever be mourning the loss of my son. Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed and shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole.”
This Tuesday was the two-year anniversary of Ben’s passing. Lisa Marie remembered him by sharing a photo that shows the matching mother-son tattoos they got together years ago.
She explained the meaning behind the tattoos, saying:
“Several years ago, on Mother’s Day, my son and I got these matching tattoos on our feet. It’s a Celtic eternity knot. Symbolizing that we will be connected eternally. We carefully picked it to represent our eternal love and our eternal bond.”
