The Leaving Las Vegas star, who was married to Lisa for four months in 2002, commented on the “devastating news” a day after her death in Los Angeles from an apparent cardiac attack.
I’ve met many people, but Lisa had the best laugh,” Nicolas stated in a statement to E! News on January 13. I am at a loss for words because she was the life of the party.
‘I take some peace believing she is reunited with her son Benjamin,’ he continued, referring to Benjamin Keough, her son, who committed suicide in July 2020 at 27.
Lisa’s mom, Priscilla Presley, issued a statement two days after the 2023 Golden Globes, revealing her daughter’s death.
It is with a heavy heart that I must deliver the devastating news that my darling daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” she told People on January 12. “My god, she was the most vibrant, powerful, and loving woman I have ever met. While processing this devastating loss, we respectfully want our privacy. The prayers and support are deeply appreciated.”
Celebrities have been honoring Elvis’s only child ever since, remembering her life as a singer and the mother of four kids: Riley Keough, 33, with ex-husband Danny Keough; her late son Benjamin; and twins Harper and Finley, 14 years old, with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.
Lisa, who just lost her son, has vowed to continue being a doting mother to her three kids.
In recognition of National Grief Awareness Day in 2022, she stated, “It’s a genuine decision to stay going, one that I have to make every single day and one that is continuously tough, to say the least.” To this day, I still go out of my way to see my girlfriends.
On January 13, a representative for Riley confirmed to E! News that Lisa will be buried next to her son in Graceland, Tennessee.
