Lisa Marie Presley shared a common thread that “plagued” Elvis

"He deserved more than that, and so does she.”

Lisa Marie Presley‘s tragic death at age 54 could share a “correlation” with the sudden death of her late father, Elvis Presley.

On January 12 the singer was pronounced dead after going into cardiac arrest, mere days after supporting the cast of Elvis at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards.

Now, her shocking passing has been linked to not only her father (who died of a heart attack in 1977 at age 42) but also his mother, Gladys.

According to biographer Sally Hoedel, Elvis’s uncles on his mother’s side also passed away from either heart or liver-related issues between the ages of 46 and 58.

In her book, Elvis: Destined to Die Young, the author argued that Elvis did not die due to “self-destruction and drug abuse” like many were led to believe; instead, it was because of “bad genes” potentially passed down by his maternal grandparents, Bob Smith and Doll Mansell, who were first cousins.

After Elvis’dies, Sally said the familial deaths had “stopped being a coincidence”.

“Lisa Marie has now prematurely left her children, just as Elvis left her in 1977 when she was just nine years old. It’s also just as Gladys left him prior to that,” she told The Sun.

“There is an undeniable pattern of young death in the family with heart, liver, and lung issues prevalent in the family tree.”

While not confirmed, it appears Lisa Marie Presley suffered the same fate as her father

“It’s obviously too soon to speculate about Lisa Marie, but reports so far do point to a heart-related event,” the biographer told the same outlet. “I would hate to see her treated unfairly in death, as her father has been.”

She continued: “It took decades to uncover just how ill Elvis was so that we could move past the narrative of him taking too many pills and dying in the bathroom. He deserved more than that, and so does she.”

On January 13, Priscilla Presley — the widow of the “King of Rock’n’Roll announced the passing of her only child.

“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” she said in a statement.

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”

According to TMZ, sources confirmed that paramedics performed CPR on January 12 before she was rushed to the hospital.

They also revealed that they could regain a pulse before she was transported.

In an update under an hour later, the same publication said that Lisa Marie went into “full arrest” and was administered epinephrine at the scene.

The report also stated that her housekeeper found her unresponsive while her ex-husband Danny Keogh performed CPR upon bringing her children home from school.
