Priscilla Presley is speaking out following the tragic death of her grandson, Benjamin Keough.
The actress took to Facebook on Wednesday, admitting that the days since Benjamin’s passing have been “some of the darkest days” for their family. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner has confirmed that Benjamin’s cause of death had been ruled a suicide. He was 27.
“The shock of losing Ben has been devastating. Trying to put all the pieces together of all the possible whys has penetrated my soul,” Priscilla wrote. “Each day I wake up I pray it will get better. Then, I think of my daughter and the pain she is going through as she was a doting mother.”
“Ben’s father, Danny, who is completely lost, as Ben was his only son,” she continued. “Riley, so loving and so close to him; Harper and Finley, who absolutely adored Ben. Navarone, who struggles deeply with loss and death. Rest In Peace Ben, you were loved.”
Benjamin was the son of Danny Keough and Lisa Marie Presley. A rep for Lisa Marie shared with ET that she has been “completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated” following the death of her son.
“She’s trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter, Riley,” the rep added. “She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”
