Emotional Priscilla Presley recalls daughter Lisa Marie complaining of stomach pain days before ‘unbearable’ death

Priscilla Presley is opening up about the last few days of daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s life.

In a new “TalkTV” interview with The Post columnist Piers Morgan, Priscilla revealed that her and Elvis Presley’s only child was already feeling ill while attending the 2023 Golden Globes days before her unexpected death.

“She didn’t look well that night and I was concerned,” the 78-year-old star said.

“She asked Jerry Schilling, one of my best friends, if he could hold her. Her heels were high, but she had worn them before, and I thought, ‘Is she OK?’ She didn’t really look that OK — she looked very frail.”

After the big night celebrating Austin Butler’s Best Actor win for his portrayal of Elvis, Priscilla recalled that the mother-daughter duo planned to grab a drink at Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont.

Priscilla Presley got emotional while recalling her daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s final days.
She told The Post columnist Piers Morgan that she was “concerned” about her daughter’s health on the night of the 2023 Golden Globes, where Austin Butler took home the Best Actor trophy for “Elvis.”
“She didn’t really look that OK — she looked very frail,” Priscilla told Morgan.

But they didn’t make it because Lisa Marie said her stomach was hurting too badly.

“Then I hugged her [goodbye], and she went her way, and I went mine, and that hug was the last hug I gave her,” Priscilla said.

Two days later, on Jan. 12, Lisa Marie was rushed to the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest. She passed away shortly after — and her mother did not make it in time to say goodbye one last time.

Page Six confirmed in July that the singer died of complications from a small bowel obstruction.

“It was unbearable. I lost my mother, I lost my grandson, and I lost my daughter,” Priscilla emotionally recalled.

“It’s still shocking that we don’t have her.”

Priscilla’s grandson Benjamin Keough — the son of Lisa Marie and her ex-husband Danny Keough and brother of Riley Keough — died by suicide at age 27 in October 2020.

In her interview with Morgan, Priscilla revealed her daughter was suicidal after the death of her son.

“Losing Ben was the hardest thing for her. He took his own life, and he was the love of her life, that child, she adored him,” she said. “She would do anything for him, anything.”

Priscilla recalled, “We were in Memphis, sitting up in the suite, and she said, ‘Mom, I don’t know if I want to be here,’ and I go, ‘What are you talking about?’ ‘You know, my Ben,’ and she would go on about Ben and how she is still grieving, and this was a couple of months before.”

Lisa Marie publicly mourned the loss of Benjamin on what would have been his 28th birthday in October 2020.

“The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day,” she captioned a photo of him sitting at a table getting ready to blow out birthday candles.

“I will never be the same. Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley. I know you would want that.”

Lisa Marie also had 14-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, with her ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

He won custody of the girls in April.

One month later, Priscilla and Riley settled their dispute over Lisa Marie’s trust.

After her daughter’s death, Priscilla learned that she was removed as a manager of Elvis’ estate in Lisa Marie’s will and replaced with Riley.

She contested “the authenticity and validity” of the will and claimed she was never informed of such a change. After settling, Priscilla reportedly pocketed “millions.”

In August, the “Daisy Jones & the Six” star, 34, admitted she and her grandmother’s relationship had been strained over the legal battle but they planned to move forward with love.

“There was a bit of upheaval, but now everything’s going to be how it was,” she told Vanity Fair.

“She’s a beautiful woman, and she was a huge part of creating my grandfather’s legacy and Graceland. It’s very important to her. He was the love of her life.”

She continued, “Anything that would suggest otherwise in the press makes me sad because, at the end of the day, all she wants is to love and protect Graceland and the Presley family and the legacy.”
