Lisa Marie Presley had experienced a lot of terrible things in the past. According to TMZ, Benjamin Keough, Presley’s son with her ex-husband Danny Keough, died in July 2020 at 27 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Keough’s friends spoke to People about his struggle with depression and how he felt pressure from the public to succeed in the entertainment industry as Elvis Presley’s grandson. He also said that the pandemic made his mental health even worse.
Lisa Marie Presley paid tribute to her late son
Presley paid tribute to her son via Instagram on the second anniversary of her son Benjamin Keough’s death.
The singer wrote an emotional message on Tuesday in recognition of National Grief Awareness Day. She wrote about how painful it is to be judged when a loved one passes away in a premature, unnatural, or tragic way.
She added, “I already battle and beat myself up incessantly and chronically, blaming myself every single day, and that’s difficult to live with now. But others will judge and blame you as well, even if secretly or behind your back, which is cruel and painful on top of everything else.”
