 Lisa Marie Presley Died from Complications of Weight Loss Surgery, Autopsy Reveals


Authorities have confirmed that Lisa Marie Presley, the singer, songwriter, and daughter of Elvis Presley, died as a result of complications from bariatric surgery she underwent several years ago. The 54-year-old’s passing on January 12 has been officially ruled as natural causes due to a small bowel obstruction. In this breaking news article, we provide additional details from the recently released autopsy report, shedding light on the common complications associated with bariatric surgery and the circumstances surrounding Presley’s death.

Autopsy Report Findings

According to the autopsy report issued by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner, Lisa Marie Presley experienced a well-known complication resulting from bariatric surgery, a weight loss procedure often recommended when other methods have proven ineffective or in the presence of serious medical conditions. The report confirms that the small bowel obstruction was the underlying cause of her demise.

Medical Emergency and Funeral

Presley was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital by paramedics responding to a 911 call reporting a woman in cardiac arrest at her residence. At the time, no specific details about the medical issue were disclosed. The autopsy report reveals that she had been experiencing stomach pain earlier on the day of her death. Following her passing, she was laid to rest in a funeral held at Graceland, her childhood home, which has since become a museum and cherished site for fans of Elvis Presley.

Family and Estate

Lisa Marie Presley leaves behind her three daughters: 34-year-old Riley Keough, known for her role in “Daisy Jones & the Six,” and 15-year-old twins Harper and Finley Lockwood. Tragically, her son Benjamin Keough passed away in 2020. Following Lisa Marie’s death, a legal dispute loomed over her estate. However, in May, her mother Priscilla Presley and Riley Keough, now serving as the sole trustee, reached a settlement, resolving the matter.


In a separate development, Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, Riley Keough, received her first Emmy nomination on Wednesday. She was nominated for the Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie category for her performance in “Daisy Jones & the Six.”


The autopsy findings confirm that Lisa Marie Presley’s death was a result of complications stemming from her past weight loss surgery. The small bowel obstruction, a known risk associated with bariatric procedures, led to her passing at the age of 54. As her family mourns her loss, Riley Keough’s recent Emmy nomination serves as a testament to her talent and resilience during this challenging time.
