Lisa Marie Presley passed away last night at the age of 54 after suffering a cardiac arrest. She is survived by daughters Riley Keough, 33, and twins Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood, 14.

Presley was in attendance at the 80th Golden Globe’s just days ago in support of Austin Butler for his role in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis. The actor shared in several interviews ahead of awards season about how grateful he was for Lisa Marie’s support while making the film.

Fans of Presley were shocked at her sudden death, but some took note that she may have felt sick just a few days ago at the Golden Globes. A clip of her holding onto her friend for support as she appeared to be unsteady has rapidly circulated on TikTok. Some feel that this is raising awareness of the signs to watch out for before a heart attack.
