Priscilla Presley sobs as she recounts daughter Lisa Marie's 'suicidal' thoughts months before her death
Priscilla Presley recalled the terrible day, saying, 'It was unbearable. I lost my mother, my grandson and my daughter'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: A distraught Priscilla Presley has disclosed that her late daughter Lisa Marie Presley was "suicidal" for several months prior to her untimely death.
The 78-year-old celebrity, who will make a guest appearance on TalkTV this week with Piers Morgan, broke down in tears as she talked about the months before her daughter died this year.
Lisa Marie Presley had opioids in her system
Lisa, 54, died in January due to a small bowel obstruction from prior weight-loss surgery. It was later found that she had opioids in her system at the time of her death, as reported by Mirror.
Priscilla recalled the terrible day, saying, "It was unbearable. I lost my mother, my grandson and my daughter," and continued, "Losing Ben was the hardest thing for her, he took his own life, he was the love of her life. She adored him, she would do anything for him."
Lisa's suicidal thoughts
Ben, whose legal name was Benjamin Keough, was the grandson of Elvis and Priscilla and the son of Lisa. He died by suicide in 2020. She recalled Lisa sharing that she was having suicidal thoughts after her son died a day before her death.
She said, "We were sitting in Memphis in the suit, she said I don't know if I want to be here. She would go on about Ben and how she was still grieving, this was a couple of months."
Lisa and Priscilla attended the Golden Globe Awards together
Lisa and her mother Priscilla attended the Golden Globe Awards together for their final public appearance. The two attended the ceremony to cheer on Austin Butler, who was being honored for his work in the film 'Elvis', which tells the story of Priscilla's well-known late husband.
The former actress talked candidly about her final treasured moment spent with her daughter in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
Priscilla told the news outlet, "We had just gotten there, you go down all these stairs. I tripped a little bit because I had these high heels on, and she started laughing so hard. I started laughing. We hadn’t even had a drink yet."
She added, "She goes, 'Oh my God, Mom, you can’t even have a drink.' … It was fun, a fun memory. Then we sat down and ordered drinks, and she says, 'Mom, my stomach hurts really bad.' We immediately got up and left.”
Lisa's daughter had collapsed at home and was hospitalized, as her ex-husband Danny Keough informed her over the phone in a span of just two days.
Upon receiving the call, she hurried to see her daughter right away and said, "I got right in the car, but she was already gone. I still can't believe it. I don’t wish this on any mother."
