On Thursday morning, Presley was rushed to the hospital for a possible cardiac arrest. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that paramedics responded to the 5900 block of Normandy Drive in Calabasas to treat a woman in her 50s who was not breathing. When they arrived, the paramedics began CPR and, upon noting the patient had “signs of life,” transferred the woman to a local hospital for “immediate medical care.”
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Fire Department confirmed that the unit was dispatched to the address for a cardiac arrest call.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee on Feb. 1, 1968, exactly nine months after Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding, Lisa Marie was briefly raised in the area before moving to Los Angeles at age 4 with her mother following her parents’ 1973 divorce.
Elvis died in August 1977, making 9-year-old Lisa Marie the joint heir to his estate alongside grandfather Vernon Presley and great-grandmother Minnie Mae Hood Presley. Following their respective deaths in 1979 and 1980, she became the sole heir and also inherited her father’s Graceland residence.
In October 1988, Lisa Marie married Danny Keough, a Chicago-based musician, with whom she welcomed two children: daughter Riley in 1989 and son Benjamin in 1992. After five and a half years of marriage, the couple divorced in May 1994.
Less than a month later, she married singer Michael Jackson, whom she first met at one of her late father’s Las Vegas concerts when she was 7 and the King of Pop was still a member of the Jackson Five.

Two years later, Lisa Marie and Jackson ended their relationship.
In 2000, Lisa Marie got engaged to Hawaiian-born musician John Oszajca, though the relationship ended when she met actor Nicolas Cage at a birthday party for Johnny Ramone in 2000, when he was estranged from Patricia Arquette.
Two years later, Lisa Marie and Cage wed during a secret ceremony in Hawaii on the 25th anniversary of Elvis’ death. Less than four months after their wedding, the pair announced they were splitting.
Her fourth marriage came in 2006 to Michael Lockwood, with whom Lisa Marie welcomed twin daughters, Harper and Finley, two years later. Lisa Marie then filed for divorce in June 2016. (The divorce was finalized in 2021.) Ever since their separation, the two have been embroiled in an ongoing custody battle over their children.
