Lisa Marie Presley, the singer-songwriter and only child of Elvis Presley, was taken to the hospital on Thursday after a medical emergency, according to her mother, Priscilla Presley.
“She is now receiving the best care,” she said in a statement. “Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We feel the prayers from around the world, and ask for privacy during this time.”
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement on Thursday that it had responded to a call about a female in Calabasas, Calif., who was “not breathing” but did not further specify the person’s condition. Her representative, Roger Widynowski, could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday night.
“Upon the deputies’ arrival, paramedics were performing CPR and assessing the patient’s status,” the authorities said. “They determined the patient had signs of life and immediately transported her to a local hospital for further medical care.”
The daughter of one of the most celebrated artists in history, Ms. Presley followed the career path of her father, Elvis Presley. She released three albums in which she set out to distinguish her rock sound while also paying homage to the man who forever changed the American soundscape by blending blues, gospel, pop and country.
The enormous legacy of her father was a constant presence throughout her life. On Tuesday, she was again celebrating him at the Golden Globes, telling Extra TV that Austin Butler, who won the lead acting award for drama for his performance in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic “Elvis” on Tuesday, had perfectly captured the essence of her father.
“I was mind-blown, truly,” said Ms. Presley, who was 9 years old when her father died in 1977. “I actually had to take, like, five days to process it because it was so spot on and authentic.”
The father and daughter were extremely close, with Elvis once flying her out to Idaho after she said she had never seen snow.
But her last name has always enshrined her as a celebrity. And her star-studded relationships only deepened that perception.
From 1994 to 1996, she was married to Michael Jackson. Together, the pair — one the daughter of the king of rock n’ roll, the other regarded as the king of pop — attracted the glare of cameras and bountiful attention. In 2002, she married the actor Nicolas Cage, but the couple separated within a four-month period that same year.
Before Mr. Jackson, she married the musician Danny Keough in 1998. They separated after six years and had two children together, including the actress Riley Keough and Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide at age 27 in 2020. In recent years, she was married to Michael Lockwood, with whom she had twin daughters. They divorced in 2021.
In a 2022 People Magazine essay, Ms. Presley said that her life had been struck with death, grief and loss since her childhood, writing that the death of Mr. Keough had been a devastating blow to her and her three daughters.
“Grief does not stop or go away in any sense, a year, or years after the loss,” she said. “Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe.”
