Keough died in Calabasas, California.

Benjamin was Lisa Marie's son with her musician ex, Danny Keough.

Benjamin is seen with his mother Lisa Marie Presley.

Priscilla Presley Lisa Marie Presley take part in a ceremony commemorating Elvis Presley's 75th birthday on Friday, Jan. 8, 2010 in Memphis, Tenn. She adored that boy. At just 17, reports surfaced that he had scored a $5 million record deal Universal Records to record up to five albums - however reps for Universal later denied these reports to be true. "He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage", she shared, according to the site.

Presley had a special bond with her son and saw a striking resemblance in him to her late father, as she told CMT in 2012 upon the release of her posthumous duet with Elvis, "I Love You Because", featuring a video packed with family footage.

She explained: "Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there".

Benjamin has three sisters, actress Riley Keough, 31 - an actress who has cut her teeth in a number of independent and horror films, including 2019's The Lodge and twins Finley and Harper Lockwood, 11.
