Presley is an actress who married the late Elvis in 1967. Together, the couple gave birth to Lisa Marie Presley — the mother of the deceased Keough. However, the couple got a divorce in 1973.

A close friend recently confirmed that Keough had struggled with his family name.

In her post, Presley called Keough’s death a devastating incident. She added that it was one of the saddest moments for her family and that everyone was still devastated.

Presley has been notably silent so far, especially as other family members have been putting out tributes to Keough. In her statement, she added:

“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.”

Presley also sent love to Keough’s father, Danny Keough. She explained that he had been devastated as he lost his only son.

Keough’s death came as a bit of a shock to many. The 27-year-old was found, earlier this month, at his California home with an apparent gunshot wound.

In the days since his death, tributes have poured from family members and friends. Last week, a close friend speaking about him, said:

“He is a wonderful, magical person. It’s just one of the reasons why this is so shocking..."

Keough’s girlfriend, Diana Pinto, also penned a sweet tribute to him. She called him the most beautiful boy she had ever seen and her best friend, in an Instagram post.

Although investigations have gone on over suspicions of murder, nothing surfaced. So far, the best explanation for death has been suicide. However, a close friend recently confirmed that Keough had struggled with his family name.

Per reports, the friend explained that Keough had struggled with depression for a while. The pressure to live up to the “Presley” name only made things worse.
