There is sadness in the air for Riley Keough and Lisa Marie Presley. On the second anniversary of Benjamin Keough’s death, both Lisa Marie and Riley Keough tweeted devastating memorials to their brother. Benjamin committed suicide on July 12th, the year 2020. He was 27 years old at the time of his death.
“Not an hour goes by where I don’t think about you and miss you,” his big sister wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “My heart still hurts when I think about the fact that you left us two years ago. It’s an honor to have you as a Ben Ben.”
An image and memories of the time Lisa Marie and Benjamin got matching tattoos were shared. It was on Mother’s Day a couple of years ago that she and her kid had matching tattoos on their foot.
“An everlasting knot, in other words. Symbolizing our eternal connection. We chose it with great care as a symbol of our unbreakable tie and our unending love for one another.”
Riley has also gotten inked since his death, of course. For the sake of her late brother’s memories, she got his name tattooed on her collarbone:
The premiere of Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biography has been a cathartic release for the Presley family during the past few months. A few months ago, Riley and Lisa Marie shared their stories with ET, including how they felt about the project and how it made them think about their paternal grandfather.
During their hand and footprint ceremony at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Riley Keough said, “It’s just very emotional and sort of hard to grasp, but it’s absolutely such a big honor.”
Lisa Marie was shocked by the film’s ending, saying, “I wasn’t ready for what it did, at all. “They left me in the theatre all by myself the first time, so I prepared for the worst. That night, when Baz came to pick me up after the movie, I was inconsolable.”
For Riley, the first time she saw Elvis, she was “bracing for an emotional experience,” but the film went above and above and brought her to tears early on, she said.
That, coupled with my gut feeling at the time that they got him, was what made me feel like they truly got it,” she said. When others show such concern for your family, it may be really moving.
