Born at the height of Elvis fame in 1968, Lisa Marie Presley grew up in the spotlight as the singer’s only child.

Elvis and Priscilla Presley split in 1972 when he was 4, and she was just 9 when her father died in 1977.

Public interest in her life – from her marriages to her private tragedies – never waned until, like her father, she was taken too soon.


Lisa Marie Presley was seen as the princess of the man celebrated as “The King of Rock”.

At a young age, she had a rebellious streak and experimented with drugs, prompting her mother to send her to a series of private schools, including a boarding school in Ojai.

In 2003, Lisa told the Los Angeles Times that, as a child, she “was kind of a loner, a melancholy, weird kid.”

“I was in real self-destructive mode for a while,” she told the publication. “I never fit in at school. I really didn’t have any direction.”

Musical career

Like her father, Lisa made a career in music and in 2003 she released her debut album, “To Whom It May Concern”, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 album chart and was certified gold that summer.

She wrote nearly all of the lyrics on the album and co-wrote all of the melodies.

At the time, the heiress told Larry King that she had to “stop” the feelings of pressure and comparison with her legendary singer father.

“If I was thinking about it, worrying about it, which I kind of have been for a long time, I would never have done what was innate in my heart, in my soul,” he said.

“So I had to stop worrying about it, it was too intimidating otherwise.”

Around the same time, Lisa Marie Presley reflected on whether her famous name was a hindrance or a help, but said she “would never take away any part of who I am or where I came from”.

“I would never want to be a part of anything else (…) I feel honored and proud of my family and my father”.

She released two more albums: Now What”in 2005 and “Storm & Grace”in 2012.

She added that she “fell for it, ‘poor, sweet, misunderstood man, I’m going to save him’… fell in love with him.”

Their marriage ended in January 1996.

Two years later, she married the actor Nicolas Cage after meeting him at a party, but was only married to him for three months, from August to November 2002. Their divorce was finalized in 2004.
