Lisa Marie Presley on life support and induced coma after suffering cardiac arrest

She recently attended the Golden Globes to watch Austin Butler win for his performance in Elvis.

Lisa Marie Presley, 54, has been rushed to hospital after suffering a "full cardiac arrest", TMZ reports. Sources told the publication paramedics performed CPR at Lisa Marie's Calabasas home on Thursday before taking her to the hospital.

Lisa Marie's housekeeper reportedly found her unresponsive and her ex-husband Danny Keough, who she lives with, performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

TMZ reports the daughter of Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla went into "full arrest" and "someone administered epinephrine at the scene at least one time" to help her regain a pulse.

The publication reports she is on life support and her condition is "critical". They add that Lisa Marie is in an induced coma in the ICU and has been given a temporary pacemaker.

Priscilla has since released a statement to People Magazine asking for privacy, "My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital. She is now receiving the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers."

"We feel the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time."


Lisa Marie and her mother attended the Golden Globes on Tuesday to see Austin Butler win the Best Actor, Motion Picture Drama award for his portrayal of Elvis in the Baz Luhrmann film.

The mother and daughter were in tears as Austin delivered his acceptance speech, where he said he would love the women "forever".

"Thank you guys. Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me. Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever," he said.

During the making of the film, Lisa Marie and Priscilla became close with the actor, sharing personal stories of Elvis to help him with his portrayal.

Lisa Marie took to social media after the first time she saw the biopic, saying, "Austin Butler channeled and embodied my father’s heart and soul beautifully. In my humble opinion, his performance is unprecedented and FINALLY done accurately and respectfully. (If he doesn’t get an Oscar for this, I will eat my own foot, haha.)"

After the film's release, Lisa Marie held a special Graceland premiere where she praised Austin for helping make her happy for the first time since her son Benjamin Keough's death at 27 in 2020.

Taking to Instagram at the time, she said, "I do believe that this may be my first smile in 2 years."


Speaking of Austin in an ABC News special, Lisa also shared, "I feel so protective of him, he’s such a sweetheart. It’s almost as if he channelled him. He put everything he had, his heart, soul…everything he had into researching, reading, watching and learning. He honoured him in every way possible that you could possibly honour him."
