Heartbroken Lisa Marie Presley pictured for the first time since tragic suicide death of son Benjamin Keough

BROKEN Lisa Marie Presley has been seen for the first time since her beloved son fatally shot himself, after days spent holed up in an LA hotel.

Elvis's only daughter was pictured leaving the luxury hotel on Tuesday just two days after son Benjamin Keough, 27, shot himself at the family home in Calabasas in the early hours of Sunday.


Lisa Marie was being supported by a woman believed to be Benjamin's girlfriend Diana Pinto, who found his lifeless body, followed by daughter Riley, twins Harper and Finley, 11, and flanked by assistants.

An onlooker told The Sun: “Lisa looked completely crushed and was huddled with Diana as they walked along a small pathway towards the exit, it was heartbreaking to watch.

“She was slow and solemn as she trudged towards a waiting car and appeared oblivious to anybody walking nearby, she was in her own world.”
The Sun understands she went back to their $1.8million mansion in Calabasas.



The family had moved out of the house some time ago due to a mold problem – but tragic Benjamin had gone back to the mansion on the weekend of his death.

Lisa Marie was said to be "beyond devastated" by Benjamin's shock death, according to her rep, adding that her eldest son was "the love of her life".

Earlier a man believed to be Benjamin's dad, Lisa Marie's ex husband Danny Keough was also spotted at the hotel.




A source said: "Lisa is inconsolable. She's been supported by friends and family who are also staying at the hotel with her.

"She moved out of her house in Calabasas over a week ago but she had to go back home to speak to the Sheriff after Ben’s death, which was incredibly traumatic, but she quickly returned to the hotel.

“She has other friends, family and staff with her but she is not doing well at all, she has barely spoken to anybody.

“Lisa has barely ventured out but her girls have been well looked after by nannies.

“They are too young to really understand everything that’s going on, and everyone is trying to keep them distracted while Lisa deals with the enormity of the situation.”




A family source previously told The Sun there were concerns for Lisa Marie and how she will cope with the loss of her beloved son.

They also think that the death of her friend Kelly Preston – John Travolta's wife who died from cancer this week – will come as a double blow to her.

"Ben was Lisa's whole world," a source said.

"Kelly's death has been a double blow for Lisa, they weren’t close in recent years and she kept her cancer battle private, but she was good friends with Kelly and John.

"They were all very close in Scientology, they hung out together with their children, even vacationed together, and Lisa was a big support for them after their son's death.

"Riley will also be very cut up about Kelly's death, it's a lot for one family to deal with."

Benjamin's cause of death is a shotgun wound and the manner is classified as a suicide, the Los Angeles Coroner confirmed to The Sun following a July 13 autopsy.

Police said in a statement on Sunday that went to the address in Calabasas following a "rescue response" call.

They added: "Upon their arrival, they located the victim suffering from one gunshot wound to the upper torso. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene."
