Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death revealed


The cause of death of Lisa Marie Presley, who died in January at the age of 54, has been revealed.

The singer-songwriter and only son of Elvis Presley died of “small bowel obstruction caused by scar tissue that developed after previous bariatric surgery years ago,” according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner. A toxicology report for Presley has not yet been released.

Presley died on January 12 at a hospital in West Hills, California, after going into cardiac arrest earlier that day at his Calabasas home, his mother, actress Priscilla Presley, said in a statement at the time. A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman also said deputies and fire department personnel arrived at his home before transporting him to the hospital.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla Presley wrote in the statement. “She was the most passionate, strong, loving woman I have ever met.”

Days before his death, Presley attended the 2023 Golden Globes with his mother. At the ceremony, Austin Butler won an award for his portrayal of the King of Rock & Roll in Baz Luhrmann’s play. Elvis.

Weeks after his death, a complicated legal battle broke out between the late star’s daughter, Riley Keough, and Priscilla Presley over his sprawling estate.

After months of back and forth, Priscilla Presley finally turned over control of her daughter’s estate to Keough in June, according to a proposed settlement filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Under the agreement, Keough was named sole administrator of her late mother’s estate once she approved the deal. Priscilla Presley was also paid an undisclosed amount from the trust to drop her petition, which challenged the “authenticity and validity” of a 2016 amendment to her late daughter’s will that replaced her as co-trustee with Keough.
