Lisa Marie Presley Cause Of Death Revealed

Six months following her premature passing, Lisa Marie Presley‘s cause of death has been revealed.

According to the County of Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s office, Elvis Presley’s only child died on January 12 due to small bowel obstruction complications.

The medical examiner responsible explained that the obstruction was “in the form of a strangulated small bowel caused by adhesions that developed after bariatric surgery years ago” adding that the obstruction is a “known long-term complication” from weight-loss surgery. 

The coroner confirmed that the 54- year old female had “therapeutic levels” of the painkiller oxycodone and trace amounts of other substances in her blood that did not contribute to her passing.

It was reported that months leading up to her death, the singer-songwriter had complained about abdominal pain and her manner of death was confirmed as “natural”.

In January of this year, Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla, now 78, released a statement saying that her only daughter had been hospitalized and, hours later, shared news of her passing.

Lisa Marie Presley is survived by her actress daughter Riley Keough, 34, and her 14-year-old twins Harper and Finley. Her son Benjamin Keough died by suicide in 2020 at the age of 27.

On Wednesday (7.12,), Riley marked the third anniversary of her brother’s passing and six months since her mother’s passing by posting a tribute to her Instagram by sharing a black and white photo of Benjamin as a child while posing next to their mother, with a caption that read, “Missing you both.”

Following a dispute concerning the authenticity of her will, Riley was made the sole trustee of Lisa Marie’s estate.
