Benjamin Keough, the son of Lisa Marie
Presley
and grandson of Elvis Presley,
has died, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. He was 27.

Presley’s rep told The Hollywood Reporter: “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.”

TMZ
reported
that Keough died Sunday (July 12) in Calabasas,
Calif., from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Hollywood Reporter
has reached out to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department
for comment.

Keough also was the brother of actress Riley Keough and son of
musician Danny Keough. (Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough
divorced in 1994.) His maternal grandmother is Priscilla
Presley.

Benjamin Keough at one point tried to follow in his famous
grandfather’s footsteps,
reportedly signing
a $5 million record deal with Universal in
2009 to record up to five albums. However, the labeldenied at
the time that any such deal had been struck.

In 2013, Lisa Marie Presley told the
Huffington Post
that she was letting Benjamin Keough do “his
own thing.â€

“He’s doing his own thing right now,†she said. “I’m
going to let him decide when he wants to go out and do what he
wants to do.â€

Keough also has twin sisters, Finley and Harper Lockwood, 11,
whose father is Lisa Marie Presley’s ex-husband Michael
Lockwood.

Ben reportedly inspired his mother’s 2012 song Storm &
Grace (his middle name is Storm). The song’s lyrics include:
“You have the most beautiful heart/ That I’ve ever known/ It
kills me you can’t ever show it/ And a shell has been
grown.â€

In 2012, Keough and his siblings all were featured in the video
for Lisa Marie’s “duet†with Elvis of his 1954 song “I Love
You Because†through archival footage.

Lisa Marie also posted a
family photo
in June 2019 with all her children, with the
caption: “Mama Lion with cubs.â€
