Lisa Marie Presley reportedly felt the “stress” of public appearances that led to her death.
Family sources told TMZ on Sunday that the late “Lights On” singer was still grieving the loss of her son Benjamin Keef, who died by suicide in 2020, and “didn’t want to see anyone.”
However, due to the success of the movie “Elvis,” which centered around her famous father, Elvis Presley, Lisa Marie knew she had to press again.
The “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” singer, who battled addiction for years, reportedly turned to opioids and weight-loss drugs to look her best for red carpet events.
After reportedly losing 40 to 50 pounds, Lisa Marie attended the 2023 Golden Globes, where Austin Butler won Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his portrayal of Elvis.
However, the “Dirty Laundry” singer was noticeably unsteady on the red carpet that night, telling friend Jerry Schilling, “I’m gonna hold your arm” for support.
“Extra” host Billy Bush, who conducted an interview with Lisa Marie at the Golden Globes, said after her death, “She was very uneven in her balance.”
He added, “The speech was very slow. And, sure enough, when the interview was over, I turned to the producer next to me and said, ‘There’s something wrong here.’
Two days after the awards show, Lisa Marie suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. She died soon after at the age of 54.
“Lisa would be alive today if it weren’t for the Golden Globes,” an insider told TMZ.
The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office has not released an official cause of death for Lisa Marie.
Although it’s still unknown why she died, the “Two It May Concern” singer openly struggled with Keough’s death.
Paying tribute to her son in October 2020, she wrote, “My beautiful beautiful angel. I worshiped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in heaven. My heart and soul are with you. Gone.”
Lisa Marie’s representatives declined Page Six’s request for comment.
